To assess the quality of education policies, the World Bank has developed the following tools: SABER-autonomy and school accountability and SABER-teachers.
In this regard, proMENTE social research within the questionnaire "SABER-autonomy and responsibility of the school" conducted an analysis of laws and regulations for primary and secondary education, and collected information on: autonomy in planning and managing the school budget, autonomy in staff management, the role of the school council in school management, school and student assessment, and school responsibility.
Within the questionnaire "SABER-teachers" the following chapters were analysed: review of the education system, requirements for entry and stay in the teaching profession, workload and autonomy of teachers, professional development, compensation for salaries and non-salaries, monitoring and evaluation of teachers, representation and voice of teachers, and school management.
The analysis of educational policies was performed for 4 cantons in FBiH (Sarajevo Canton, Tuzla Canton, Herzegovina-Neretva Canton, West Herzegovina Canton), and for the territory of Republika Srpska.
Finally, proMENTE social research conducted a survey of public officials (employees of the Ministries of Education and Pedagogical Institutes) in the mentioned cantons in the FBiH in order to develop a dashboard of educational policies.
A survey of public officials designed by World Bank staff was applied and included several chapters: sociodemographic characteristics of respondents, learning objectives, responsibilities and mandates, quality of bureaucracy, and impartial decision-making.
