SEA-PLM 2019 Technical Standards (2019)
The purpose of this document is to specify the standards which will guide data collection activities for the first edition of the Southeast Asian Primary Learning Metrics (SEA-PLM 2019). These standards provide a benchmark against which compliance of data quality and project implementation procedures by countries and organisations participating in SEA-PLM 2019 can be assessed.
SEA-PLM 2019 Code of Practice (2019)
The Southeast Asian Primary Learning Metrics Code of Practice is based on the ASEAN Community Statistical System (ACSS) Code of Practice which is consistent with the Fundamental Principals of the Official Statistics adopted by the United Nations Statistical Commission in 1994. The SEA-PLM Code of Practice for SEA-PLM 2019 is an important means of ensuring trust, accountability and the highest professional standards in the development, production, dissemination and communication of SEA-PLM statistics.
SEA-PLM 2019 Assessment Framework - 1st edition (2017)
The SEA-PLM 2019 Assessment Framework outlines an approach to assessing the domains of mathematics, reading, writing and global citizenship. It provides a description of the constructs to be measured and puts forward a concept for the contextual questionnaires. It outlines the design and content of the assessment instruments and describes how measures generated by those instruments relate to the constructs.
- gives a common language to stakeholders for discussion of the domain areas;
- guides test development, ensuring that the instruments serve the intended purposes and cover the domains in the way agreed at the outset;
- ensures that, where continuity from one year or one grade level to another is of concern, there is an articulated plan for the assessment. This provides stability or, where change is desired, it can be made explicit and implemented deliberately; and
- communicates the purpose and features of the assessment program beyond the immediate stakeholders and, consequently, helps in public interpretation of the results.
