USAID Disability Disaggregation Data: Request for tools, protocols, and lessons learned
USAID’s Office of Education is committed to collecting, analyzing, and using disability data in USAID Education Programming in order to ensure efforts are inclusive of children and youth with disabilities and that the Agency’s Education Policy priority of ‘expanding access to quality education for all, particularly marginalized and vulnerable groups’ is being met.

Some Implementing Partners (IPs) already have or are developing disability data collection tools for use in education programming. USAID, through its Data and Evidence for Education Programs (DEEP) activity, plans to work with partners and disability stakeholders to determine and validate a data collection method and tool for use in USAID early grade education programming.

To achieve this goal, USAID will carry out a mapping of tools designed to identify children with disabilities currently being used by IPs in the context of education programming. Once the mapping has been completed, USAID will carry out a meta-analysis of disability data collected by IPs since February 2018 when USAID issued its guidance on collecting data on disability in education programs. The mapping of these tools, lessons learned from the application of current tools, and the findings drawn from the meta-analysis will inform the discussions in a workshop planned for 2020.

In order to carry out this work, DEEP asks all IPs who have applied questionnaires and/or screening tools to collect student disability data related to education programs (funded by USAID or by other donors) to please complete this survey form. Please complete one form for each instrument used. This survey gathers information about instrument design, piloting, and field applications. The final section of this survey provides an opportunity to upload documents for the DEEP team to review as part of the mapping exercise. Please note that your tools and protocols will not be shared beyond the USAID and DEEP team-members working on this tool. Lessons learned regarding successes and challenges will be reported at an aggregate level.

Please identify a person within your organization who is familiar with the tool used, with training in advance of data collection, and with the tool's administration at the pilot and field stages. This questionnaire should take between 15 and 20 minutes to complete. The deadline for completing this survey is October 11, 2019.

Thank you in advance for your contribution to this exercise. If you have any questions about this survey, please contact Amy Mulcahy-Dunn, DEEP COP at amulcahy-dunn@encompassworld.com.
