Solomon Islands Release

The Ministry of Education and Human Resources Development (MEHRD) will release a Performance Assessment Report that informs its National Education Action Plan 2016 – 2020.

The Pacific Community (SPC) technical support assisted developing the Performance Assessment Report (PAR) in late 2016. This work was done through SPC’s Education Management Information System Systems (EMIS) support facility of the Educational Quality and Assessment Programme (EQAP), which is supported by the Australian Government.

 

 

 

Speaking about the PAR Report, locally-based SPC Applications Developer, Colley Falasi said, “The development of the draft PAR report is a joint work effort between SPC and MEHRD in the Solomon Islands. It is encouraging to see that MEHRD is now taking leadership and ownership to finalize this report which will soon be available online.”

SPC’s technical support contributed to strengthening the Solomon Islands’ Education Management Information System (SIEMIS), which helped the ministry produce the PAR report.

The PAR report covers indicators that are relevant to measure progress against the three main strategic policies of the National Education Action Plan 2016 – 2020. The aim of the Plan is: – to improve equitable access and completion of education at different levels, to improve quality and relevance of education, and to improvement Management of the education system in the Solomon Islands.

The data will be used by the Solomon Islands Government, MEHRD and the many stakeholders, who all require this high-quality, timely information to make informed decisions on planning, policy and programme development, and resource allocation.
