The overall objective of the consultancy is to assess the current learning levels of grade 8 students in Cambodia. Compared with the 2017 assessment results, the consultancy also aims to analyze to what extent learning performance has changed over the past 5 years.  In doing so the study will examine any loss/gains arising from school closures and/or lack of access and/or usage of distance learning modalities. This will be done by providing technical assistance to the Education Quality Assurance Department (EQAD) for the grade 8 national assessment. It will also, to the extent possible, compare and analyze the grade 8 results with the grade 6 national learning assessment and Learning loss report published in 2022

Work Assignment

The outputs of the consultancy will be used to increase knowledge of student learning outcomes and student learning loss during and after the COVID19 pandemic. The outputs will be further used to stimulate dialogue among the CDPF partners, the education sector stakeholders, and the Ministry of Education, Youth, and Sports to identify priority areas for interventions going forward. Under the overall supervision of the UNICEF Chief of Education, with inputs from the CDPF partners, and direct technical guidance by a UNICEF Education Specialist in close collaboration with the Education Quality Assurance

Department, the consultant will undertake the following tasks:

  • Identify and analyze existing data sets that can support additional analysis on student learning loss/gain, such as the previous grade 8 national assessment conducted in 2017, and the grade 6 national assessment incl. learning loss report published in 2022, based on sound methodological considerations.
  • Support EQAD team to quality assure data collection tools, sampling methodology, and assessment questionnaires, aiming to address potential biases due to dropout for students.
  • Support the EQAD team to carry out analysis to investigate the current learning level and learning loss/gain, identifying potential mitigating and intensifying, factors as a result of school closures, based on appropriate and accepted scientific statistical methodologies, as part of the grade 8 national assessment.
  • Write a concise report on the results of the grade 8 national assessment including the current student learning levels as well as learning loss/gain caused due to school closures and other factors associated with learning and the COVID19 pandemic. The consultant will draw on both the findings from the 2022 grade 8 national assessment and the previous 2017 grade 8 national assessment and other existing data sets as appropriate, and as identified by the consultant to enable an analysis of learning loss/gain.
  • Provide continuous capacity building and assistance to EQAD technical officers
