Background of the Assignment

USAID’s Building the Potential of Youth Activity (Potential) is a five-year USAID-funded demographic opportunity program that promotes opportunities for young Ethiopians to positively contribute to the betterment of society. Its goal is for unemployed and underemployed Ethiopian youth ages 15-29 in rural areas and towns to attain the skills, knowledge, and social capital that lead to increased income and long-term economic self-sufficiency. It will be achieved by improving access to education, technical training institutes (TTIs), and practical work experiences, and bringing together local stakeholders such as TTIs, private sector, youth, and government. Its mission is to support Ethiopian society and the national government to benefit from the ‘demographic opportunity’ afforded by the high proportion of Ethiopians in the age groups of the active workforce. The activity plans to directly reach 34,537 Ethiopian youth in six regions, helping them escape the cycle of poverty.

 

Objective of the Assignment

As part of POTENTIAL’s continuous improvement agenda we have identified the need to track employability skills acquisition among youth participants and to do so in a standardized, quantifiable, and comparable manner. This assignment must accomplish two objectives:

 

1.    Local language adaptation. Locally adapt the English version of the Employability Assessment Tool (EAT) to the Amharic language that is easily understood by youth 17 to 23 years of age. This entails using qualitative methods such as focus group discussions and in-depth interviews; and   

2.    Scale Reliability & Time Stability Analysis: Conduct analyses of pilot-test data to test two psychometric properties of the local language Amharic version of the EAT to ensure successful local language adaptation. Two psychometric properties should be tested: a) the internal reliability of the overall, and six sub-scales, of the Amharic version of the EAT using Cronbach alpha coefficient and b) tool stability by use of a one-week test/retest using split-half reliability or ICC coefficient.



Assignment Tasks and Deliverables

This assignment will involve the following broad tasks and deliverables.  

STAGE I:

  1. Task-1: Conduct a “translate for connotation” session with Save the Children’s POTENTIAL staff, who are fluent in Amharic language, to develop an initial translation of the English version of the EAT in Amharic language.      Deliverable-1: Report detailing the EAT questions, phrases, and words that SC’s staff had challenges translating the connotation into Amharic language.

Task-2: Conduct 4 FGDs with youth to discuss the initial translation of the EAT by SC’s staff. These FGDs would be with 1) 17-20-year-old young women, 2) 21-23-year-old girls, 3) 17-20 year old young men, and 4) 21-23 year old young men. Deliverable-2: Report detailing the questions, phrases, and words youth had difficulties understanding and youth’s recommendations for translation.

STAGE 2:

 

Task-3: Develop an initial Amharic version of the EAT that reconciles POTENTIAL staff and youth’s versions. Deliverable-3: An initial version of the EAT in Amharic language that youth can easily understand.

Task-4: Conduct a pilot-test of the Amharic version of the EAT with 100 youth, comprised of: 1) twenty-five young women 17-20 years of age, 2) twenty-five girls 21-23 years of age, 3) twenty-five young men 17-20 years of age, and 4) twenty-five young men 21-23 years of age. Deliveable-4: A report that presents the Cronbach alpha reliabilities for a) the overall EAT (24 items) and for the 6 sub-scales as well as disaggregated by gender and age groups. The report should highlight a) alpha reliabilities that are less than 0.70 and b) items in each sub-scale that reduce internal reliability.

Task-5: If the overall EAT Cronbach reliability is less than 0.80, then additional FGDs as well as in-depth interviews will be conducted with youth on specific items (questions) that were identified as reducing EAT reliability (Task-4). Deliverable-5: A report on recommendations of how to change phrases or words in Amharic to increase EAT reliability.

STAGE 3:

Task-6: Conduct additional pilot-tests, and FGDs and in-depth interviews with youth and revise the Amharic version of the EAT until 0.80 alpha reliability coefficient is achieved.

 

Task-7: Once the EAT has an alpha reliability of 0.80 or greater, conducted a one-week test / retest of the EAT to assess time stability. This will involve administering the Amharic version of the EAT to the same 100 youth, comprised of the same four groups mentioned above, at no less than one-week interval or more than 2 weeks. Deliveable-7: A report that details the administration process, any issues that occurred during administration, and the test / retest reliability coefficient. A Cronbach Split-Half analysis is acceptable, which should achieve 0.70 or greater.

 

 

Time frame for the Assessment

The employability assessment is anticipated to commence on August 1, 2018 and must be completed by September 30, 2018. The duration of the assessment shall not take more than 50 working days including travel, field work, report preparation and submission of the final report.  The consultant should indicate a breakdown of timeframe showing the detail work plan and expected dates for each phase of the assessment undertaking
