Description of the contract

The consultant/firm would be required to: i) identify a set of key learning objectives from the national curriculum which all children must achieve before other learning objectives are taught. This will have already been done as part of the EFS contract but will need to be revisited with Punjab officials. ii) design an easily deployable assessment system that will provide valid and timely information to a set of users (extending the EFS system to Punjab): teachers, student and parents, community members and the policy makers – so that they can make better decisions in support of improved quality and learning outcomes. The assessment system should be in line with the national curriculum, but should also take into account international standards of literacy and numeracy and be practicable. For Punjab, the system being developed in EFS should extend to grades 3 through to 5. iii) the assessment system must allow PEF/PEAS/PEC to undertake question level analysis for individual students and allow it to be aggregated at the class, student, district and PEF and provincial level. It should be able to clearly identify which learning objectives pupils are achieving well and which they are struggling with. iv) compile and evaluate the different sources of learning outcome data available (e.g. (inter)national assessments, EGMA/EGRA, etc.), government assessments (PEAS/PEC/PEAS), civil society led assessments (i.e. ASER, UWEZO). v) review the strengths and weaknesses of government (PEAS/PEC/PEAS/DSD) assessments and review what other organisations, including donors, are doing on assessment and recommend how to attain synergy between the different stakeholders. For Punjab this will include PEF, PEAS, Punjab Education Commision (PEC) and Department for Staff Development (DSD), World Bank proposals and USAID’s EGRA. The consultants may find others to also review. For Punjab, the consultant should refer to DFID’s strategy which has been endorsed by PEF.
