The Learning Bar is dedicated to improving the outcomes of all children and reducing childhood vulnerability. Our student assessments and survey solutions are developed by in-house researchers and educators, whose work on student learning is being used to affect local and national policy. This knowledge is the foundation of our evaluation tools which provide educators with the insight they need to make informed school planning decisions.

Underlying research

The Learning Bar was founded in 2004 by Dr. J. Douglas Willms. His extensive educational knowledge and recent work on student engagement for the OECD Programme for International Student Assessment (PISA) is embodied in the intellectual property of the Early Years Evaluation, Confident Learners and the OurSCHOOL surveys.
