Simulating learning: Estimating COVID-19 related learning losses and effects of mitigation

RISE has developed a set of interactive data visualisations to illustrate potential learning losses caused by COVID-19 school closures in low- and middle-income countries. These complement RISE’s previous work simulating the learning effects of COVID-19 school closures, offering additional scenarios for exploration.

Visit the page to find out why it is necessary to model learning loss, how our model estimates long-term learning losses, and how to interpret the data in the visualisations:
