ASER – The Annual Status of Education Report (ASER) is a survey of the quality of education. ASER seeks to identify gaps in educational data by looking to provide a reliable set of data at the national level, that is comprehensive and, at the same time, easy to understand. The survey’s stated objectives are three fold:
- (i) To get reliable estimates of the status of children’s schooling and basic learning (reading and arithmetic level) at the district level;
- (ii) To measure the change in these basic learning and school statistics from last year; and,
- (iii) To interpret these results and use them to affect policy decisions at various levels.
ASER Pakistan is being facilitated by the South Asian Forum for Education Development (SAFED)
