New report: Insights into Primary Education in Haiti

Oliver Neuschmidt presenting to the Ministry of Education in Haiti

Since 2015, IEA (the International Association for the Assessment of Educational Achievement) has been working closely with the Haitian Ministry of National Education (MENFP), the Haitian Institute of Training in Educational Sciences (IHFOSED), and the Inter-American Development Bank (IDB) to support education in Haiti by building capacity in their assessment system.

Building on the first findings for the 2017 National Evaluation, the new report presents further analysis of the data collected from about 60,000 Haitian fourth-grade students in nearly 2,000 schools. The data were gathered through comprehensive achievement tests in mathematics, French and Creole. Alongside the assessments, extensive contextual information was collected from students, teachers, and school principals through questionnaires.

Oliver Neuschmidt presented the main findings of the report to the Ministry of Education on Tuesday 7th May, 2019.
