Why is an individual country’s data important to the global education community?

Individual country results contribute to a pool of data that stakeholders at the international level can use to track and monitor student learning outcomes over time and across countries.

Having comparable country data provides critical understandings into where learning outcomes are improving and where additional support or resources are needed. It also helps stakeholders identify equity gaps so they can allocate resources accordingly.

This comprehensive understanding is critical to achieving the sustainable development goal of equitable, quality education for all.
