A sector-wide shift away from a focus on school access and attendance toward equity and learning will require common understanding among implementers and funders working in the international education in emergencies (EiE) sector and between the EiE and development sectors, and alignment of their measurement tools. Recognizing this, the Quality and Equitable Learning Outcomes (QELO) work stream within the Inter-agency Network for Education in Emergencies (INEE) Education Policy Working Group (EPWG) commissioned two separate mapping exercises of academic and social and emotional learning (SEL) program approaches, measurement tools, and monitoring and results frameworks, the aim being to map what quality education in emergencies constitutes at the program and individual learning levels, to inform the linkages with global measurements. This report contributes to the academic component of the QELO work stream by outlining the landscape of tools, guidance documents, and program approaches currently used to measure learning outcomes in EiE contexts, and by providing an analysis of the links and alignment among these in order to inform a more streamlined measurement of learning outcomes in emergencies. Part 1 of the report provides an overview of tools, frameworks, and program approaches and compares each assessment’s purpose, design, target population, and various other parameters. Part 2 analyzes commonalities and differences across the domains and sub-domains assessed by each tool. Part 3 summarizes the links across the measurement tools, frameworks, and program approaches, and their application in EiE contexts.
