Senegal NEPAD/impact evaluation of the Sankoré project

Since 2003, the New Partnership for Africa's Development (NEPAD) has been coordinating the NEPAD e-Schools initiative. A partnership between NEPAD, African governments and civil society, the initiative aims to transform all African primary and secondary schools into e-Schools. With funding support from the International Initiative for Impact Evaluation (3ie), the initiative engaged the services of NBA to conduct a three-year impact evaluation study of the Sankoré project. The latter constituted part of the Senegalese government’s efforts to modernize the education system, to develop 21st century skills, and to improve the quality of the provision of education through the introduction of interactive white-board equipment. A regression discontinuity (RD) design was employed to enable the identification of the causal impacts of the programme on learning outcomes.
