The USAID Basic Education Program is a four-year (January 2020 – January 2024) program funded by the United States Agency for International Development (USAID) and implemented by RTI International in partnership with the University of Georgia, seven regional universities, Child and Family Society (CFS) and the Center for Integration and (CRII). Through direct collaboration with the Georgian Ministry of Education, Science, Culture and Sport (MOESCS), the USAID Basic Education Program seeks to implement sustainable student-centered reform in primary grades. As a system-wide reform, the Program will impact all stakeholders in the primary education sector in Georgia, including primary grade students and their families, teachers and administrators, universities, local organizations, and the Ministry.

USAID Basic Education Program aims to institutionalize student-centered instruction through a far-reaching systemic reform of pre-service and in-service teacher professional development and use of research and data to inform policy and classroom practice. This goal will be achieved by accomplishing three objectives:

  • current teachers and administrators implement student-centered curricula
  • future teachers acquire student-centered teaching skills and future           administrators acquire relevant instructional leadership skills
  • educational policies are developed with the use of data and evidence

The USAID Basic Education Program will assess the early grade reading and mathematics skills of Grade 2 and Grade 6 students as part of the ongoing efforts to improve the performance of all Georgian primary students. Assessing Georgian, Azeri, and Armenian mother tongue, and Georgian as a Second Language (GSL) represents an unprecedented initiative that will provide rich data about the reading and mathematics skills of all Georgian students. The sampling will be administered in 300 public primary schools located throughout Georgia. The baseline assessment will be conducted in September 2021, the midterm in May 2022, and the final assessment in May 2023. This scope of work is for the baseline assessment.
