Of the world’s 650 million primary school age children, 250 million are not learning even basic skills in reading and mathematics. World leaders have committed to overcome this ‘global learning crisis’ by ensuring inclusive and equitable quality education and promoting lifelong learning opportunities for all by 2030 (Education Sustainable Development Goal 4). The global goal focus on leaving no one behind is vital, with some evidence showing that inequalities in learning within countries are wider than inequalities across countries.

The aims of the conference are threefold:

1. to identify lessons for public policy using existing international and regional learning assessment data, with a focus on countries furthest from achieving global goals.

2. to highlight innovations needed in learning assessment data, both in relation to the measurement of learning as well as different forms of disadvantage (poverty, gender, disability, language, and geographic isolation).

3.to promote ways to ensure learning tools and data are publicly available, enabling researchers to maximise methodological rigour in the use of the data and widen the policy debate.
