Zimbabwe Education Management Information Systems Peer Review Report

The Zimbabwe EMIS Peer Review was conducted from the 16 th to the 20 th of September 2019 by a team of experts from the Association for the Development of Education in Africa (ADEA), Namibia and Zambia. The main objective of the mission was to assess the Zimbabwe Education Sector EMIS Norms and Standards based on the SADC EMIS Norms and Standards Assessment Framework.

The assessment framework is composed of 17 Norms and 85 Standards and enables country self-assessment with peer ranking by external member state experts. Each of the 17 Norms are broken down into a number of components. Components are high-level descriptors of a number of Standards. The degree of implementation of a Standard associated with a Norm is measured on a 4 point assessment scale. The ideal Standard is embedded in “Quality Statistics” (Level 4) while inadequate implementation will earn a Poor Statistics (Level 1). A general ranking of the country’s EMIS is obtained by computing the average of all scores for all standards.
