Measuring Our Impact
Transparency in What We Do
Evaluation is a critical element of our programs, and we have in place a testing regime for students, teachers and mentors to identify improvements in learning outcomes and the development of teachers’ knowledge and skills. We also rigorously monitor and evaluate all aspects of other programs, and report transparently on the outcomes.
Our Impact Today
Where We Work
Over 10 Years Our Reach Has Extended To
Student Learning Outcomes
SeeBeyondBorders conducts independent testing of the mathematics knowledge of all students in program schools. Tests are based on relevant levels of the Cambodian mathematics curriculum and are set by SeeBeyondBorders staff.
SeeBeyondBorders has developed a scale to measure competency across six key teaching skills. These skills include breaking down concepts, creating lesson plans, using concrete materials, managing their students’ activities, and working with their mentor. Each skill level consists of a number of required capabilities that together denote a particular level. The competency of teachers participating in our programs is assessed every six months through structured classroom observations.
The skills of mentors are measured in much the same way as for teachers, with six-monthly structured observations to assess competency against a scale comprising four skills, to be achieved at four levels. The four skills assessed are teacher management, communication, observation and feedback.
