Policy Domains SABER Exploring
SABER stands for Systems Approach for Better Education Results. It is an initiative that helps countries systematically examine and strengthen the performance of their education systems to achieve learning for all. The World Bank is working with partners around the world to develop diagnostic tools that benchmark education policies according to evidence-based global standards and best practice. By leveraging global knowledge, SABER fills a gap in the availability of policy data, information and knowledge on what matters most to improve the quality of education.
What does SABER offer?
Products including a SABER Policy Goals Report, SABER Policy Notes, and a SABER Knowledge-Base Website, will help policymakers identify potential leverage points to improve education system performance and results.
SABER is drawing on the best global evidence, research, impact evaluations, and operational experience to put world class expertise in the hands of education leaders.
The analytical underpinnings for each education policy domain follows a similar process:
- Conceptual Framework
identifies key policy goals that each policy domain would aim to achieve, the policy levers that would allow it to reach these goals, and the indicators that measure the extent it is reaching each goal
- Diagnostic Tool
used to quickly and economically collect information and data on issues needed to assess performance, based on both available evidence and on the experience of top-performing education systems
- Country Reports
provide a standardized snapshot and one-page description of a country's (or a jurisdiction's) performance on each policy domain
- Case Studies
provide concrete illustrations of what some countries have done to measurably improve performance in a given policy domain
- SABER Knowledge-Base Website
shares collected policy data, supporting documents, and analytical work on each policy domains
