This review was presented as part of the panel, Measurement of Equity in Education: A Handbook, at CIES 2018.
To support efforts to monitor progress towards the SDGs, the Research for Equitable Access and Learning (REAL) Centre at the University of Cambridge and the UNESCO Institute for Statistics (UIS) are co-editing a “Handbook on Measurement of Equity in Education”, produced in collaboration with FHI 360 and Oxford Policy Management. The Handbook is intended to serve as a reference for professionals involved in the measurement and monitoring of equity in education. In this review, Dr. Eduardo Backhoff provides an overview of its content and present examples of its application to national and international equity data.
