Relevant, reliable, timely data and information is essential for improving the quality and performance of education systems. Despite years of effort, lack of access to such data and information continues to hinder effective education policy and decision making. Education policy leaders, decision makers and senior managers understand the importance of detailed, accessible, timely data to help inform decisions, assess results and allocate resources effectively and efficiently. Without good data and information the decisions made by national, regional and local education policy leaders can never be as effective and efficient as they need to be to meet the needs and requirements of their learners and education institutions. In some countries the main problem is still a lack of access to basic data and information, in others the challenge is lack of alignment and integration of information from multiple sources. What we know is that for many years, education authorities have been building and using multiple independent data systems for various purposes. As a result, many countries today have separate systems for managing finance, student, staff, accounting, maintenance, attendance and assessment information. These subsystems are inefficient and they do not provide decision makers with the kinds of consolidated data they need to make decisions that will improve the quality and performance of their education systems.

Efforts to build regional or national Education Management Information Systems (EMIS) are ongoing worldwide. An EMIS is a system for the collection, integration, processing, maintenance and dissemination of data and information from multiple sources to support decision making, policy-analysis and formulation, planning, monitoring and management of an ‘education system’. An EMIS system allows education leaders, policy-makers and decision makers at all levels require to:

  • Describe their education system accurately
  • Monitor the attainment of goals and objectives across the education system
  • Support the effective and efficient allocation of resources
  • Review and evaluate the impacts of priority education policies and programs
  • Assess the overall effectiveness and efficiency of the education system
  • Assure the delivery and achievement of quality education for all
  • Monitor student achievement
  • Improve the quality and effectiveness of classroom teaching
