Mid-Term Evaluation of Basic Education Project (BASE)
DevTech performed a mid-term evaluation of the USAID Basic Education Project (BASE) in Nicaragua. The three-person team evaluated the design, management, and implementation of the project under three major components:
- institutional strengthening,
- teacher training, and curriculum and
- instructional materials design.
Among the recommendations made for the second phase of BASE were a move towards more student-oriented curricula and instructional methods and increased community participation in support of ongoing decentralization.
