Findings and recommendations from this analysis are expected to provide guidance for further improvement of the student learning outcomes framework and eventually to inform a future review of primary curriculum in Lao PDR. They will also contribute to the revision of instructional materials as well as the assessment system that is appropriate for local contexts.
