This tool is a spreadsheet that helps to systematically gather, identify and consolidate the available ECE data in an efficient manner as part of the data collection process in the context of Education Sector Analysis (ESA).
Using this tool will support ECE TWG stakeholders with:
Identifying and mapping available ECE data;
Identifying any data gaps;
Organizing information from relevant complementary information sources (e.g., thematic studies/reports) to bolster the evidence base for the Education Sector Analysis (ESA); and
Organizing information on options for addressing key data gaps to initiate short- and long-term evidence planning.
When to Use this Tool
This tool can be used in the Education Sector Analysis Reply (ESA) process prior to analyzing and reporting data.
Outside of the Education Sector Analysis (ESA) and Education Sector Planning (ESP) process, the spreadsheet may also be used to map and analyze the ECE evidence base to inform other initiatives, such as advocacy efforts, funding proposals, development of pre-primary education policies or laws, or specific subsector strengthening activities (ex. curriculum reform, etc.). As a country may have multiple ECE providers and service delivery models, it may be used (i) to engage all providers to align common indicators across providers and service delivery models; (ii) to support the development of harmonized subsector regulatory frameworks; and (iii) as the basis for creating an indicator framework to consolidate ECE data across partners if one does not yet exist.
