Assess, Test, Progress
The International Development and Early Learning Assessment, IDELA, is a free, easy-to-use, rigorous global tool that measures children’s early learning and development. IDELA provides ECCD programs, donors, and government partners with clear evidence on the status of children from 3.5 to 6 years.
IDELA is a global good that empowers actors to improve access and quality in early childhood development through data driven decision-making. IDELA is used to understand what skills children bring to their first day of school, to measure development and early learning, and to understand issues of equity in young learners. To date, IDELA has been used by more than 104 actors in 74 countries.
