The SISTA program is a key monitoring tool of the Solomon Islands Ministry of Education and Human Resource Development and has the capacity to serve multiple functions to a wide range of educational stakeholders. This report provides analysis of year 4 and year 6 Literacy and Numeracy of SISTA 2015. It is both a technical report for NEAD that includes descriptions of the processes followed in data analysis and reporting and the theoretical underpinnings of the analysis, a summary of the findings of the analysis and the implications for further analysis; and a report for the wider MEHRD staff that sets out the findings of the analysis in comparison to 2013 SISTA study findings and the implications for further investigations relating to curriculum content, sequencing of subject matter, teaching methods in literacy and numeracy and materials, and the learning environment (e.g. language of instruction).
