Standard setting is critical for reforming the education system and improving the teaching learning process. It is also considered an integral part of the student assessment process. Through consultative meetings to raise awareness on the importance of standards, as well as the broad PSC engagement process, PRP is working to facilitate the process of establishing standards that define reading performance and will serve as the foundation for comprehensive reading reform. Soliciting technical input from members with expertise in assessments, language, and curriculum, as well as teachers for grades 1 and 2, PRP is working closely with the advisory committee task forces to facilitate quarterly meetings, during which data is analyzed toward recommending appropriate standards for reading. Standards will be set for reading skills and grade levels for Urdu, Pashto, and Sindhi.
