Measuring What Matters: People for Education

STATUS: Complete (2012-2017)

The Project 

Measuring What Matters, a component of People for Education, aims to build consensus among a broad range of stakeholders – both within and outside of the education system – around broader goals and indicators of success for public education.


The team works with universities, education experts, foundations, and governments in consulting with teachers, students, parents, principals, school boards, employers, and community organizations in exploring and identifying what truly matters when evaluating students’ achievements in school.


The Project works to develop broader goals for success in education, and explores new ways to measure progress towards these goals.
