The Primary Education Improvement Project (PEIP) will be implemented by the Ministry of Education and Science of the Republic of North Macedonia (MoES) and will improve conditions for learning in primary education. The project will be implemented country-wide, in urban, peri-urban and rural locations across the country.
The main objective of the consultancy is to provide technical assistance and logistic support to the MOES and NEC in establishing the NAP in primary education and provide quality assurance of all stages of the entire process. The process of establishing NAP will require developing age-appropriate sample-based assessments for, initially, Grades 3 and 5. These will focus on the key enabling skills of basic mathematics (numeracy) and language (that is, languages of instruction). The assessment frameworks and tests for the NAP for primary education that will be developed will be rooted in the curricula of the MoES and the levels of achievement used for reporting will reflect both the learning objectives contained within national curricula, associated standards, and the reality of the situation in the nation’s classrooms. Data obtained will be aggregated at the system and district levels with an acceptable level of precision.
Duration: from April 2022 to February 2022
