Teacher Incentives (Internship) at IPA Rwanda


Commitment:  10 weeks

Position Summary:

IPA Rwanda is looking for one intern to begin in September 2015 to support its project Pay for Performance Among Rwandan School Teachers. This project is working closely with the Ministry of Education in Rwanda and its implementing arm the Rwanda Education Board. The study is taking place in 100 schools in Rwanda and will examine the impact of two types of support to teachers – a lightweight program of in-service training for teachers and a teacher recognition program that systematically rewards teachers who meet certain standards. The intern will be supporting these activities, the data collection surrounding them, the processing of any data collected to date and the preparations for further survey rounds.

The baseline for this work was completed in July 2015 and the next round of data collection will take place in fall 2015. During this period, the intern will support the implementation of additional student testing as well as data collection from participating teachers. This work will include recruiting and training enumerators, monitoring all data for quality and managing the data entry for all student test data.
