As part of the continuation of the activities on the validation of the items of the Action Research on the Measurement of Learning of Beneficiaries of Literacy Programmes - Phase II (RAMAA II), the UNESCO Institute for Lifelong Learning hosted the first of three virtual workshops.

The expert group is made up of the Directorate for Evaluation, Foresight and Performance (DEPP) of the French Ministry of Education, the Institut de la francophonie pour l'éducation et la formation (IFEF) in Dakar, the National Institute for Statistics and Applied Economics (INSEA) in Rabat, the National Institute for Examinations and Evaluation in Jerusalem, the Organisation for Economic Co-operation and Development (OECD) and the CONFEMEN Programme for the Analysis of Education Systems (PASEC).
