Lines of action

Throughout its 15 years, the diagnoses were published with the proposal of fomenting public debate, stimulating initiatives of civil society, subsidizing the formulation of public policies in the areas of education and culture, and collaborating to monitor their performance.

In addition to national surveys, INAF instruments have been used in special studies to diagnose learning needs of specific populations and evaluate educational programs.
