Serie: NEQMAP thematic review
This thematic review provides an overview of the existing inclusive education policies and practices in the region specifically focuses on learning assessment of children with disabilities at the school level. By examining extant literature, it discusses key areas that influence the participation of children with disabilities in learning assessments and provides region-specific cases to elaborate on the challenges faced by education systems in assessing learners with disabilities. The review suggests that countries need to focus on integrating children in mainstream education, strengthening teacher education and permitting disability-specific accommodations to ensure assessment accessibility to children with disabilities.
