Monitoring and evaluation (M&E) are essential management tools for any educational programme or project. M&E processes are generally used to assess the performance of the programme and the programme’s progress towards its goals and objectives. The main rationale of M&E is to identify the strengths and weaknesses of the effort, as well as to determine challenges that must be overcome. Monitoring and evaluation also provide necessary information for reporting to financial donors, government authorities and other partners. Wise programme planners and implementers build M&E into every part of the programme and use what they learn to strengthen and sustain their endeavour. This publication provides some tools that programme personnel may use in the M&E of their multilingual education (MLE) programmes. This booklet complements the five booklets of UNESCO’s MTB MLE Resource Kit – Including the Excluded: Promoting Multilingual Education (2018). The tools consist of self-administered questionnaires, individual and focus group discussion interview guides, and a classroom observation form. These instruments are meant for data collection through a combination of closed-ended questions using multiple-choice and Likert-scale questions as well as open-ended questions. Most of the tools in this publication were field-tested, and used for data collection in Nepal, the Philippines, Thailand and Viet Nam.
