In this policy brief we map the landscape of national assessments and outline the ways in which the seven domains of the Learning Metrics Task Force (LMTF) are reflected in the current priorities of national education systems. Using publicly available data sources, NLAMP collected national assessment metadata from 125 countries from all six regions of the world, and created a database of over 300 assessments, categorizing their subject focus areas, which learning domains they fall in, and at which point in the schooling cycle they are administered.

EPDC compiled sample test items to inform learning outcomes data for the ASER-India, ASER-Pakistan, UWEZO, and Beekungo learning assessments. These assessments all test basic reading and math skills in similar ways, but the exact content, difficulty of questions, and criteria for passing a level vary by country and sometimes by year. The samples in this document provide a sense of these differences and are taken directly from the reports cited.
