This document provides guidance to apply a recently developed strategy to assess two indicators that embody tolerance, respect and sustainable development, namely:
Following a thorough review and endorsement by the UIS’ Technical Cooperation Group on the Indicators for SDG 4-Education 2030 (TCG), the measurement strategy has since been applied to the last cycles of TIMSS, PISA and ICCS to produce scores to measure Indicators 4.7.4 and 4.7.5 for 60 countries. While this marks a significant achievement, it is important to acknowledge that two- thirds of UN members have yet to participate in these assessments. To promote wider participation among UN members, this document serves as a robust and easy-to-use set of guidelines offering detailed technical guidance for countries on how to collect the data necessary to produce the information to measure and monitor SDG Indicators 4.7.4 and 4.7.5. Notably, these guidelines will aid in the production of information that is comparable with that of the 60 countries for which this data already exists.
