This symposium to be presented at the UKFIET 2017 conference is formed around a common analytical framework developed by the Equity Initiative for analysis of learning outcomes data, with a differentiated look at program impact. Using a common sequence of analytical steps, all contributors to this panel apply an equity lens to their own programmatic data.
The panel will feature three presentations of research conducted at the UNESCO Institute for Statistics, FHI 360, and USAID on issues of robust measurement of inequality in educational outcomes and resource allocation at the national and programmatic levels.
Please join us after Wednesday's CIES events to celebrate the first year of the Education Equity Research Initiative.
This panel represents the first collaborative analysis across implementing partners answering the structured questions agreed by practitioners in the Education Equity Research Initiative. It offers a cross-agency view of action to improve the ways that we identify and analyze data to address inequity.
CIES 2017: Researching Educational (In)Equality in Contexts of Conflict and Fragility: Hearing from New Scholars from Conflict-Affected Contexts (group roundtable paper session)
The purpose of this roundtable session is twofold, to:
- contribute to the growing scholarship on education equity and conflict
- support the work of scholars from conflict-affected countries
This panel wishes to present and explore in-depth analysis of disaggregated data collected from household-based, citizen-led assessments countries across the PAL Network to focus specifically on those children with inherited and multiple disadvantages that are most likely to be left behind.
The panel addresses the issue of education inequality by reviewing and cataloguing institutional drivers of inequality in educational outcomes, measurement of educational inequality indices related to access by gender, children with disabilities, and location, and over an individual lifecycle.
Particularly in regards to measurement, this panel will help to inform key deliverables of the Equity Initiative, and more broadly will provide the field with information to help better conceptualize the role of household education contributions in determining key life outcomes for children.
CIES 2017: Rethinking equity measurement practices to ensure education goals are met by all (group panel)
This panel synthesizes the findings from systematic reviews, undertaken by the Education Equity Research Initiative, that lay out the current practices in equity measurement by global sources, within educational interventions, and for conflict-affected and fragile contexts.
This workshop aims to provide participants with a stronger understanding of the methodological and measurement challenges surrounding the analysis of educational equity and inequality. This workshop will also present the audience with the work done by the co-authors of an upcoming publication; the International Handbook on Measuring Equity in Education, co-edited by the UNESCO Institute for Statistics and the REAL Centre, Cambridge.
