Measuring Education Outcomes: Moving from Enrollment to Learning

On Wednesday, June 2, the Center for Universal Education at Brookings hosted a discussion on the need to refocus the international education dialogue from school enrollment to learning achieved in developing countries. Participants, who included education experts from academia, international organizations and government, assessed the current state of systematic efforts at the global level to measure learning outcomes.

Center for Universal Education Co-Director and Senior Fellow Jacques van der Gaag opened the event by charting the landscape of learning, including education outside the primary school classroom, during early childhood development and the importance of acquiring both cognitive and non-cognitive skills for ensuring learning outcomes.
