LMTF 2.0 is an initiative by the task force to sustain the momentum built by LMTF Phase 1. The objective for LMTF 2.0 is to support development of more robust systems for assessing learning outcomes and better use of assessment data to help improve learning outcomes across the seven domains. It sets out follow-up tasks through an expanded set of partners and focuses on bringing task force recommendations to life.
By the end of 2015, the task force aims collectively to achieve the following five key results:
1. Plans developed and implemented in 15 countries to improve measurement and learning outcomes based on the LMTF recommendations;
2. A set of validated, practical tools that governments and other national stakeholders can use to adapt the LMTF recommendations to their national or sub-national contexts;
3. 15 case studies describing how the Learning Champions built consensus on national priorities around learning assessment and outcomes and started elaborating national plans for strengthening learning assessment;
4. Regional networks activated through which the first cohort of Learning Champions will continue collaborating and mentor new countries.
To achieve the above objectives, LMTF selected these 15 countries through a competitive process to serve as “Learning Champion” partners to help advance the goal of creating more effective assessment systems to improve learning outcomes. Idara-e-Taleem-o-Aagahi is proud to have been chosen as a Learning Champion from Pakistan and shall be hosting this work across Pakistan in collaboration with the AKU-IED, IBCC, PITE and Government of Punjab, Sindh, KPK and Balochistan.
