This will: produce baseline population estimates inreading and mathematics proficiency to enable participating countries to set informedtargets for improvement; facilitate reporting against SDG Indicators4.1.1a and 4.1.1b; assist with tracking learning progress overtime; complement AMPL-b tools that were developed in 2021 for the Monitoring theImpacts of COVID-19 on Learning Outcomes(MILO) study (UIS, 2022a).Four countries participated in the AMPL-ab study: The Gambia (Grade 3), Kenya (Grade 6), Lesotho (Grade 7) and Zambia (Grade 4 & Grade 7).
