Advancing Partnership for Improved Learning (APIL) Low-Cost Private Schools (LCPS) Baseline Evaluation Enumerator Training, Tamale, Ghana from May 30th – June 7th, 2024

The Supporting Holistic and Actionable Research in Education (SHARE) Activity is being implemented by the University of Notre Dame (UND) in partnership with local higher education and research institutions between 2020-2025. SHARE aims to strengthen evidence-based decision-making in the education sector while advancing the United States Agency for International Development’s (USAID) learning priorities in international education.

Through the SHARE Activity, the SHARE team, and partners support USAID missions in advancing education research projects through buy-ins. One such buy-in for the USAID Ghana Mission is the impact and performance evaluation of the Advancing Partnership for Improved Learning (APIL) Activity to support Low-Cost Private Schools (LCPS) in Northern Ghana. The impact evaluation seeks to examine the effects of APIL on school outcomes, including learning and completion rates among second and sixth-grade students. Preceding this study is the training of enumerators in the data collection instruments – Early Grade Reading Assessment (EGRA) and Receptive Expressive Language Module (RELM) tasks, piloting of these tools, and field data collection. This training exercise is being conducted from May 30th   to June 7th, 2024 in Tamale, Ghana. Makerere University School of Public Health – ResilientAfrica Network (RAN) is being represented by Ms. Damalie Nsangi, RAN Program Manager.
