R is an open source statistical programming language which is becoming a standard for statistical analysis in many fields. Its integrated facilities for data manipulation, calculation and graphical display have established R as one of the leading statistical programming software products on academics and research institutions.

When analyzing or interpreting sample data, researchers should always consider the sampling design used to select the targeted populations (e.g., schools, classes, students, teachers etc.). This is of particular importance when focusing on complex random sample data, such as the ones used in large scale assessments in education (e.g. TIMSS, PIRLS, PISA).

The Learning Metrics Task Force (LMTF) is an effort to bring the global education community together to define global ambition on improving learning and practical actions to deliver and measure progress. The overarching objective of the project is to catalyze a shift in the global conversation on education from a focus on access to access plus learning.

This workshop will go over the various roles of each stakeholder in the textbook chain. Participants will be introduced to the role that donors policies play in textbook acquisition; strategies for textbook acquisition in various countries; the publishing industry - how books are published and marketed; printing technology; textbook distribution methods; the role that booksellers play in distribution, copyrights and piracy issues; and methods to minimize corruption of book procurement and teacher training issues.

In 2000, it was recognized that without a specific focus on ensuring children and youth in emergency contexts had access to quality education, the Education for All goals would not be reached. Since then,the number of out-of-school primary-school-aged children has decreased, although it is estimated that half of the 61 million still out of school children are in crisis- or crisis-prone situations.

The objective of this half-day workshop is to provide participants with information about current and potential mobile technology approaches that support numeracy at the primary level. The workshop will include an examination of key areas in which support for numeracy are needed and the ways in which mobile technologies might provide added value, including teacher training, in-class instructional support, and out-of-school support and practice.
