The National Admission Test (NAT) is one of the largest projects in the country working against corruption in the education sector. The project is aimed at providing equal and fair access to higher education through transparent and independent testing. Since 2002, the NAT has partnered with the Ministry of Education and Science and is administered by the Center for Educational Assessment and Teaching Methods (CEATM), an independent testing organization. The management of the national testing program by an independent professional organization has been one of its strengths and is a key to the testing results being recognized as merit-based and transparent.

The youth of the Kyrgyz Republic are a very diverse and heterogeneous part of society, as well as a developing dramatically and a very important social resource. This is why the youth attracts the attention of politicians, government structures, and public organizations. At the same time, it is not very easy to find, in the public domain, analytical materials that describe various aspects of youth life and environment.

KRTI commissioned a series of case studies from independent, third party researchers to review a selection of activity clusters and document results and lessons learned. The purpose of these case studies is twofold. First, they are intended to provide an independent, third party perspective on the results of specific clusters of activities.

Researchers were asked to evaluate the validity of KRTI‘s programmatic assumptions and determine whether activities achieved their intended output and outcome objectives. The studies were also intended to evaluate the success of a group of small grants, aggregating outcomes to determine a broader programmatic result. In this way, the studies are a key component of the program‘s overall monitoring and evaluation effort.

Second, these case studies are intended to identify programmatic and strategic lessons learned and provide recommendations to inform future programming. As KRTI ends, initiatives by government, civil society, and the international community will continue to address the themes and sectors KRTI targeted. These case studies will serve as one means of contributing to future efforts. These case studies will also help to inform stabilization and political transition work more broadly within OTI and USAID.
