The overall goal of this activity is three-fold: to try to
improve our understanding of the nature of basic learning
competencies (BLCs) within and across societies; to assist
governments and multinational agencies in obtaining reliable and
useful information in this domain in order to improve in-school
and out-of-school learning; and to assist schools and programs
that provide instruction to better understand the effectiveness of
their activities.
