Providing Opportunities with Education (POWER-J) Data Collection (August 2021 – March 2022)

The objective of POWER-J is to evaluate the impact of socio-emotional and pedagogical classroom interventions on students’ cognitive and behavioural skills and, conditional on that, evaluate the effects on improving the teaching and learning environment. If proven effective, the Ministry’s aim is to institutionalize the program. Dajani Consulting was contracted by World Bank to perform a midline and end line survey to collect data from student and teachers in 105 treatment schools and 105 control schools, related to social emotional learning (SEL) using several instruments, and use this information to produce clean datasets useful enough to measure the socioemotional skills of students and teachers in the 210 treatment and control group public schools, as a result of implementing behavioral lessons and pedagogical intervention.
