The Conundrum of Learning Norms: Towards a Learning Gini Index (CIES 2018 presentation)
This presentation was presented as part of the panel, The Equity Initiative: Data and Evidence to Address the Learning Crisis, at CIES 2018.
This paper presents support for a new Learning Equity Gini Index (LEGI) that will assist international educational development researchers and practitioners in three key ways. First, a LEGI would enable a better understanding of learning gaps over time between various segments of a country’s population. Second, such an Index would provide a way to compare Indices across different metrics of learning, since only learners within a specified population would be measured on the same scale. Third, the LEGI would build on previous income and education indices in a coherent way.
