Assessment of learning outcomes in West Africa

The World Bank has published the results of a learning outcomes assessment that was carried out in 2014 in ten Francophone African countries, including seven in West Africa. This study is part of the Programme for the Analysis of Education Systems (PASEC), which the World Bank relies on to determine its interventions in the education field. It draws a picture of students’ levels in mathematics and in reading French. It reveals that, in general, there are still significant gender and social disparities when it comes to access to education in the region. Download country-by-country results
