The project team worked with the Educational Review Office (ERO), the Ministry of Education of
Nepal to design the SAA questionnaire for Nepali, Mathematics, and Science to measure student
gains in achievement during the school year. We drew on the expertise of ERO to design
scientifically valid and reliable measures that are comparable to National Assessment of Student
Achievement (NASA) of Nepal measures. Student test scores will be collected two times—at the
beginning and end of the school year. The beginning‐of‐year assessment data collection process
was completed in 2018.

The SAA instrument will be available upon completion of the project.

USCO is designed to collect information on school facilities, services and teaching quality
independent of surveys. The main goal of this observation is to verify the information collected
through school, teacher, and students’ surveys. The research team at the University of Michigan,
ISER‐N and local stakeholders, primarily the school inspectors, jointly designed two separate
instruments‐ school observation form and classroom observation instrument. The school
observation measures include school facilities such as number of buildings, library, laboratory,
computer room, playground, toilet, drinking water playground and services such as
transportation, hostel etc. The classroom observation measures specifically focus on teacherstudent
interactions and teaching quality. Both of these instruments were pretested through 28
school observations and 155 classroom observations.

The school and classroom observation instruments will be available upon completion of the
project.
