Diagnostic Review of the Monitoring and Evaluation System of Uganda´s Education Sector: Selected Findings and Discussion

Nathalie Holvoet, Liesbeth Inberg


While the world is not on track to reach the Education for All (EFA) goals aid to the education sector has been reduced. In a context of limited resources in which maximising student learning is a challenge, strengthening monitoring and evaluation (M&E) systems is necessary, in order to make use of evidence and demonstrate results. This article argues in favour of an incremental approach to strengthening M&E systems that starts from what exists locally. In doing this, an essential first step is a diagnosis of the existing M&E system or arrangements that moves beyond technicalities and also focuses on the underlying institutional issues and the role of different stakeholders with different M&E needs. This article presents the findings from such a diagnostic exercise of Uganda’s education sector M&E system. Our findings show that key elements of Uganda´s education sector M&E are already in place, though a number of challenges and weaknesses remain.
