Protocol - Under what conditions do inspection, monitoring and assessment improve system efficiency, service delivery and learning outcomes for the poorest and most marginalised? A realist synthesis of school accountability in low- and middle-income countries.

Abstract

This is the protocol for a review which aims to explore the conditions under which three approaches to school accountability – inspection, monitoring and assessment – lead to improvement in schools and to positive learning outcomes for schoolchildren in low- and middle-income countries, especially the poorest and most marginalised. The review will examine three key outcomes that accountability systems aim to improve: children’s learning; the delivery of education within schools; and the efficiency of the system of education in achieving learning and delivery outcomes across schools.
