|Education Statistics and Indicators|
What it is ?
The Education Statistics section is a collection of basic statistical information on schools in Cambodia for the school year 2010-2011. It focuses on Pre-School, Primary and Secondary Education and includes information on students, staff, textbooks, buildings and other school facilities, community participation and finance in their respective variables, characteristics and disaggregates.
What it is for ?
Education Statistics and Indicators, 2010/2011 is primarily intended for use by education administrators and managers at the various levels of the Ministry of Education Youth and Sports (MoEYS). This naturally includes the Central, Provincial, District, and School levels. Within the school level are the Cluster School Heads and the School Principals who are in charge of the day-to-day activities of the school. Professionals including teachers, educators and allied personnel in related institutions and organizations including the PTA and the Community will find this booklet useful to their need to improve practices.
How it was collected ?
The Department of Planning (DoP) of the MoEYS uses the “Annual School Census Forms” - (ASCF) - to collect the data used in compiling this booklet. According to EMIS activities schedule, the forms are distributed to all the schools annually through the Provincial and District Education Services. The School Principals take the responsibility for filling the forms and the District and Provincial Offices for collecting, checking and returning the forms to the DoP.
How it was processed ?
The Education Management Information System (EMIS) Office of the DoP/MoEYS receives all the forms and manually checks, collates, batches and edits the forms according to pre-determined codes and procedures before entering the data into the computer. A specially prepared program that accepts data only if they are logically correct automatically checks for computer-entry errors. However, the Center crosschecks and corrects incomplete or incorrect entries in the forms at relevant collection points (Province, District, Schools) and in absolute cases follow up on the return of forms to ensure that all schools are covered.
Selection of Indicators
Within the context of planning, monitoring and evaluating the educational objectives and targets set by the MoEYS, statistical indicators presented in the booklet were selected from the array of standard education indicators used by UNESCO, UNICEF, and related agencies as measures of educational development. These indicators are also considered in the global focus on the assessment and development of Education for All.How it is disseminated
