Education Survey Course

By: RTI International

January 1, 2017

Under the Education Survey Course, RTI International has developed curriculum for Ministry of Education staff to learn how to analyze and use data for decision making, with an emphasis on early grade reading assessments. The Ministry of Education of Gambia requested RTI to teach a course that will enable its staff to better analyze data from the early grade reading assessment follow-on data collection that the Ministry conducted. RTI Staff, Abhijit Nimbalkar, and Michael Costello, conducted a two-week Education Survey Course training for Ministry of Education staff in the Republic of the Gambia from August 16 to 27, 2010. The curriculum is a combination of the instructional materials developed for the online course as well as on-site facilitation and teaching. This activity is being funded by the World Bank.
