Assessment for Minimum Proficiency Level (AMPL-ab)

The Assessment for Minimum Proficiency Level (AMPL-ab) project was designed to produce Sustainable Development Goal (SDG4) 4.1.1a and 4.1.1b indicators by sex to monitor the progress of SDG4. AMPL is calibrated to the global definition of Minimum Proficiency Levels (MPLs) to measure the proportion of children and young learners at Grade 2/3, end of primary and end of lower secondary education who are achieving at least a Minimum Proficiency Level (MPL) in reading and mathematics by Sex.  The AMPLs produces internationally comparable SDG4.1a and SDG4.1b indicators by administrating AMPLa, AMPLb or AMPL-ab respectively.


There are five reports covering each four participating country reports and one international report including summary of each participating country. The participating countries and AMPL measured grades are: the Gambia (Grade 3), Kenya (Grade 6), Lesotho (Grade 7) and Zambia (Grade 4 and Grade 7) to produce SDG4.1.1a and SDG4.1.1b indicators by sex.

The International report on Assessment for Minimum Proficiency Level (AMPL-ab) includes results of measuring SDG4.1.1a and SDG4.1.1b indicators by gender of each participating countries incorporating different chapters including executive summary, study design, contextual analysis, summaries of participating countries, key findings, and appendices with technical information.
