SEA-PLM Secretariat is honoured to present SEA-PLM 2019 Main Regional Report, Children’s
learning in 6 Southeast Asian countries. Findings presented in the five chapters of the Report provide meaningful information to understand the level of resources, practices and learning outcomes in basic education across Southeast Asian countries.

Six countries from the region participated in SEA-PLM 2019: Cambodia, Lao PDR, Malaysia, Myanmar, Philippines and Viet Nam. This first round focused on Grade 5 students, and on 3 learning domains: reading, writing and mathematics. A global citizenship questionnaire module was also developed as an experimental exercise in comparative large-scale assessment at primary education level. In addition, SEA-PLM 2019 used a series of background questionnaires to collect extensive information about children, classrooms, schools, teachers, head teachers, parents and communities.

We hope this report and further national and regional research offers a new policy momentum among Southeast Asian countries and partners.
