Measuring SDG 4 : How PIRLS can help. How the Progress in International Reading Literacy Study (PIRLS) helps monitor Sustainable Development Goal 4 targets
MetadataShow full item record
The analyses presented in this booklet exemplify ways in which data from a cross-national learning assessment such as PIRLS can help monitor progress towards Sustainable Development Goal (SDG) 4, which aims to “ensure inclusive and equitable quality education and promote lifelong learning opportunities for all“. This booklet accompanies the PIRLS and ePIRLS international reports and provides further insights on how learning assessments not only can help monitor learning outcomes but also other indicators in the SDG 4 monitoring framework, such as equity, school violence or teacher qualifications. In addition, it shows how learning is associated with particular factors that also need to be closely monitored. These include children’s early childhood experiences, their motivation and educational aspirations, their home background and support they receive from their parents, as well as their learning and teaching environments.
