Results and Evidence
Our Results and Evidence work area produces evidence-based information and data to strengthen decisions on teacher effectiveness and efficiency, and inform our programming. The three main elements of this work area include:
- Demonstration of results: by evaluating the in-service training model in terms of its impact, outcomes and outputs.
- Production of evidence to support the theory of change: Contribute to the educational evidence base in Nigeria through studies that evaluate the results of the in-service and pre-service teacher training models.
- Monitoring of activities: monitor the implementation of in-service and pre-service training model activities to ensure the quality of their delivery.
In the short-term we will strengthen systems that manage and give access to information. But our medium to long term goal is to encourage the use of data for policy and planning.
So far, the programme has conducted baseline studies and operational researches to generate baseline data for measuring its indicators and to test the workability of some of its models and strategies that have been implemented.
As part of the efforts at strengthening the state result and evidence systems, the programme supported the following state level activities;
- Development of forms and instruments for both in-service and pre-service training activities
- The use of both paper and tablet-based data collection mechanisms.
- Development of a cadre of state and local government Education Management Information Systems (EMIS) and ICT officers
- Support to governments to install databases (developed by ESSPIN and adapted by TDP) at the local government levels.
- Development of student management information systems so that Colleges of Education can better store, manage and monitor information on registrations, admissions, teaching practice and graduation
