Country Experience: M & E in Solomon Islands (SWAp) at the Pacific Capacity Building Workshop on M & E progress in Education Team: Donald, Noelyn and John
History of M & E at MEHRD Solomon Islands ESIRP & SWAp ESIRP started in 2003 and SWAp was established to support ESIRP ESIRP Phase I – 2004 – 2006 (ESP) ESIRP Phase II 2007 – 2009 (NEAP) ESF 2009 - 2015 Partnership, EU, NZAid and SIG Smaller framework to implement the PAF,AJR and ESCC monitoring tools to assess progress.
History of M & E at MEHRD Solomon Islands Pre-tension to 2003: Various different EMIS were used at different times. Annual data collection via school survey forms, but data were not always inputted and analyzed. 2004 – Present: The SIEMIS years. During this time SIEMIS has been expanded and refined to suit wide range of monitoring, evaluation and requirements.
M & E Challenges and Responses at MEHRD Solomon Islands ChallengesResponse Non responsive schools/institutions Encourage participation through awareness raising and training Involving Provincial Officers in the collection process Encourage participation through providing feedback data Thread of penalties for late forms
Cont’d… ChallengesResponse Multiple overlapping data collection Harmonized all enquiries into one annual school census form Data validation and auditing Quality monitoring features built into SIEMIS Field trips used as opportunity to verify data as well as encourage Donors to participate (SWAp)
Cont’d… ChallengesResponse Estimating feature in SIEMIS used to fill gaps In future, an increased role for inspectorate Division Data QualityTraining for schools in how to keep good records Quality review features built into SIEMIS
Cont’d… ChallengesResponse Quality checks on major publications Data TimelinessUse of estimates Radio broadcast announcements and follow up to collect late surveys Additional staff employed to enter data
Cont’d… ChallengesResponse Data analysis and reporting Data analysis training through SIEMIS project Establishment of M & E TWG SIEMIS system training so more officers use the system Analysis and reporting cycle established through PAF & SWAp frame work
The Way Forward SIEMIS project now in final transition phase This will involve strengthening and handover in key areas such as: 1.Ministry wide training in how to use the system, AND how to use the information the system produces 2.Final joint review of survey forms (including PAF and SWAp initiatives) 3.Incorporation of TVET, Teachers Master File and Tertiary Sectors
The Way Forward II 4.Final system enhancements 5.Training for PEOs (Provincial Education Officers) with a view to establishment a bigger role for them in the process. (connecting network to provinces) 6.Strengthening monitoring arrangements with appointment of an M & E officer and coordinating TWG
