Cameroon - Francophone Africa results monitor : basic education (English)

The Francophone Africa education results monitor was developed as an output of the regional technical assistance (TA) for quality assessment in Francophone Africa program for the analysis of education systems (PASEC). The PASEC 2014 international student assessment provides its 10 participating countries (Cameroon, Burundi, Republic of Congo, Cote d’Ivoire, Senegal, Chad, Togo, Benin, Burkina Faso, and Niger) the first internationally comparable measure of learning assessment for these countries and the first international benchmark of sufficient competency in 2nd and 6th grade reading and mathematics. This information is crucial for promoting the World Bank’s results agenda systems approach for education in its 2010-2020 education sector strategy. Learning outcomes are a true measure of results of an education system - while enrolment in school is an important indicator, the cognitive and non-cognitive skills obtained in school are what matter most for human capital and subsequent productivity and poverty reduction. The country diagnostic report cards utilize PASEC data and latest demographic and health survey (DHS) to provide a snapshot of an education system’s ability to educate its children, its ability to promote poverty reduction by including the poorest in learning, and its ability to educate its poorest girls. It also provides further details of the access to education and learning achievement as measured by PASEC.
