This file contains data at the lesson level and corresponds to the TDP IE endline classroom observation (CO) instrument. It also contains some variables required for weighting the data. Refer to the Weighting sub-section in the Sampling section of this documentation for a description of the weighting procedure and refer to the technical document 'Quantitative Analysis: Samples, Weights and Survey Settings' provided under Related Materials for details over which weight variables, sample identification variables and survey settings to use for each level/type of analysis.
Some variables from the questionnaire have been excluded from this dataset for confidentiality and other purposes. See 'List of Variables Excluded from Endline Survey Datasets' in Technical documents for a list of these variables and reasons why they were excluded.
The dataset includes all teachers and head teachers who were successfully observed at endline. The teachers are assigned an ID from 2 to 4, and they can be matched to the teacher IDs in the 'el_v2_1_teacher' dataset as well as to the teacher IDs in the baseline datasets (using the school_id and teacher_id variables). All head teachers have a teacher_id=1. The dataset includes both teachers who were observed at baseline and endline and teachers who were only observed at endline. Note that only panel survey weights were constructed and included in the dataset for the sample of teachers who were observed at both baseline and endline. There exists a variable in the dataset which indicates which teachers were observed at both baseline and endline 'n_panel_obs'.
Note that in the first days of fieldwork, lessons were only observed until the 36th minute; however, the protocol was then changed so that lessons were observed until the 45th minute. The variable 'n_obs_to_36min' in the dataset indicates which lessons were observed until the 36th minute.
Names of districts, schools, teachers and pupils have been removed in the anonymisation process.
