Monitoring and Evaluation Systems

The second component of the "Secondary education" activity concerns the strengthening of the system for the assessment of student learning and the "MASSAR" information system. The aim is to support the National Evaluation Body of the education, training and scientific research system and the Ministry of National Education and Vocational Training in order to perpetuate and improve the National Programme for the Assessment of Student Learning (PNEA) and to prepare Morocco's participation in the OECD's international PISA (Program for International Student Assessment) evaluation. As far as the MASSAR information system is concerned, this sub-component includes action to strengthen the capacities of actors at the various central, regional, provincial and local levels (schools) in order to establish an educational policy based on reliable information from the evaluation system.
