The University of Notre Dame’s Global Center for the Development of the Whole Child released a new online module, Practical Measurement. The Practical Measurement course is a self-paced, online video course that covers critical issues that practitioners in low-resource and fragile contexts need to consider when measuring the learning and development outcomes of children and adolescents.
The course focuses on four key parameters—appropriateness, utility, feasibility, and rigor— that practitioners should consider when attempting to measure children and adolescents’ learning and development. Pulling on over a decade of experience working on measurement and evaluation in low-resource, conflict-affected, and fragile contexts, Dr. Nikhit D’Sa (@NikhitDSa), from the University of Notre Dame’s Global Center for the Development of the Whole Child, guides users through the self-paced modules, sharing practical measurement and evaluation guidance, insights, tips, and resources.
Explore the modules in any order you wish, collect Dr. D’Sa’s recommendations on additional measurement and evaluation resources from global organizations, and begin to develop a plan to simply and effectively measure and evaluate children and adolescents’ outcomes in your context.
