Link profile: Southern and Eastern Africa Consortium for Monitoring Educational Quality (SACMEQ)
"In the 1990s an extremely successful strategy for capacity building in the area of monitoring and evaluating the quality of education was developed through the establishment of a Consortium of fifteen Ministries of Education known as the Southern and Eastern Africa Consortium for Monitoring Educational Quality (SACMEQ). SACMEQs mission is to assist educational planners and researchers to undertake studies of the quality of their education systems by working in a co-operative manner that allows them to share their experiences and to learn from each other. The network works closely with the International Institute for Educational Planning (IIEP) to co-ordinate the delivery of intensive training programmes focussed on the requirements of the research, and also to facilitate access to advanced technical knowledge and computer-based techniques."
