School Performance and Factors of Public Primary Education in the Socialist Republic of Vietnam

The Socialist Republic of Vietnam benefited from a diagnostic assessment by the CONFEMEN Programme for the analysis of education systems (PASEC) during the 2011/2012 school year.

The assessment consisted of two data collections (in December 2011 and May 2012) in the second and fifth years of primary education in 180 schools. The data collected concerned the pupils, teachers and head teachers, as well as the in-school and out-of-school learning environment. The language of instruction (Vietnamese) and mathematics were assessed during this study.
