ENHANCING CAPACITY OF RUSSIAN EXPERTS:
specific educational institutions that will strengthen their capacity for analytical work and training in the area of quality of education and development aid
a network of experts that would improve their analytical capacity for applied analysis of learning outcomes and education policy in developing countries
READ RAS will provide opportunities to experts on training, capacity building and knowledge sharing in different assessment domains: classroom, large scale, national.
Under the guidance of the READ Council, a group comprised of key Russian and World Bank officials, the READ Trust Fund supports work at both the global and country levels. In READ I program at the global level, the focus was on generating and sharing knowledge and good practices in the form of tools, analytical reports, and case studies. At the country level (in Angola, Armenia, Ethiopia, the Kyrgyz Republic, Mozambique, Tajikistan, Vietnam, and Zambia), World Bank teams and country stakeholders worked together to implement a set of READ Trust Fund–supported activities that addressed gaps in the country’s existing learning assessment system. The goal of the READ 2 Trust Fund is to continue to strengthen educational assessment capacity in developing countries, and to help countries improve their capacity to monitor and support student learning through the design, implementation, and use of robust assessment systems.
