The overall aim of the study is to contribute to a quality education through improving knowledge about the determinants of learning outcomes in the Afghan context. The main objectives are: 1. To explore what students in SCA supported schools know and understand - compared to curricula and compared to contextual factors and quality inputs; 2. To compare students’ learning achievements in SCA supported schools with other public schools; 3. To explore what disparities, if any, exist between students’ learning achievements and identify factors for improvement that can be addressed; 4. To contribute to capacity building of stakeholders in regards to assessment of learning achievements. Although the study aim to assess learning achievements of students in SCA supported schools, it is an attempt to gather knowledge and experiences of general use for education in the Afghan context.
