West Nusa Tenggara was the first partner province for the Innovation for Indonesia’s School Children (INOVASI) program in Indonesia. The pilot program was carried out in six targeted districts: North Lombok, Central Lombok, Sumbawa, West Sumbawa, Bima and Dompu. In 2018, the third year of the program, INOVASI needed to gather up-to-date information about the stakeholders’ perspectives on education, particularly in relation to literacy, numeracy skills and inclusive education. More specifically, INOVASI needed to assess whether and to what extent the stakeholders have changed their mindsets and practices.
INOVASI also wanted to comprehend the learning conditions in the six targeted districts in West Nusa Tenggara, the enabling environments that improve the quality of education in these areas and how these aspects have shifted during the pilot program implementation period. Hence, fourteen research questions were developed accordingly and were used as the basis for designing the research instruments.
This report provides an overview of the implementation of INOVASI’s pilot programs in the six targeted districts and compares the results with the baseline study’s results. The data was collected from key informants at provincial, district and school levels in the targeted districts in December 2018.
The findings indicate that, overall, INOVASI’s pilot program was successfully implemented and contributed to changes in the mindsets of practitioners and to the practices in basic education in the targeted districts.
