Toward Universal Learning: Recommendations from the Learning Metrics Task Force presents the full set of recommendations of the Learning Metrics Task Force, a multi-stakeholder group of 30 organizations
that met from July 2012 through September 2013. The 18-month process that led to development of these
recommendations is described in detail in a series of three reports under the title Toward Universal Learning.
In the first report, What Every Child Should Learn, the task force identified the competencies, knowledge or areas of
learning that are important for all children and youth to master to succeed in school and life. The second report,
A Global Framework for Measuring Learning, presents a vision for how learning should be measured globally.
Finally, the third report in the series will be released in November 2013 and will address how the measurement of
learning can be implemented to improve education quality.
The recommendations presented herein represent the collaborative work of Learning Metrics Task Force members, three technical working groups, and more than 1,700 individuals in 118 countries around the world who provided feedback through consultation.
