Program Description

The Education in Emergencies: Education for Action (3EA) Measurement and Metrics initiative seeks to ensure quality learning for marginalized children by facilitating stakeholders’ ability to demand and invest in, generate, communicate and use evidence to support children’s holistic learning and development in crisis contexts.

Education can only contribute to inclusivity and equity in society by ensuring quality learning for the most marginalized children: those displaced by crisis and conflict as well as those in host communities under strain.

Since its inception in 2017, the main aim of this program is to develop a social-emotional learning (SEL) tool to measure the SEL of students in Lebanese primary schools. This will allow us to build a robust tool to identify the social-emotional needs of primary school-going children in Lebanon and will help efforts to nurture the needed support at the classroom, pedagogical, and school level as a whole to ensure the acquisition and development of children’s core social and emotional skills.

Program Goals

  • Develop, adapt, test and use data from a measure of children's holistic learning and development for national/sub-national monitoring purposes
  • Increase the capacity of the 3EA partnership to provide guidance on how to select, adapt and administer measures, and to analyze and communicate the resulting data
  • Identify, pilot, collect data, and build DOPS and CERD capacity on a priority set of constructs to be part of the SEL measure development
  • Disseminate project research findings
