Jordan’s Education Management Information System
2016 UNESCO Jordan
OpenEMIS allows Jordan’s Ministry of Education to formulate evidence-based policy, based on real-time education data from individual schools, staff and students.
The Government of Jordan, as part of its Education Reform for the Knowledge Economy program (ERfKE II), aims to systematise the use of evidence-based planning to address education challenges. In 2014, Jordan’s Ministry of Education began to implement an upgraded Education Management Information System (EMIS), with support from UNESCO and financing from the EU Delegation in Jordan. Together with large-scale institutional, technical and human capacity building operations across the country, the tool will allow the Ministry to collect accurate data and indicators and formulate effective policy responses. The project was officially launched in August 2016 by His Excellency Professor Mohammad Thneibat, Deputy Prime Minister and Minister of Education.
