The National Centre for Research into Basic Education (NCRIBE) was established in 2006 in conjunction with the Ministry of Education and Ghana Education Service with the mandate of conducting evidence-based research in Basic Education to inform and engage national and international audiences in best practices of delivering Basic Education. NCRIBE is one of the three centres, together with the Centre for Educational Policy Studies (CEPS) and Centre for School and Community Science and Technology (SACOST) which was amalgamated in 2013 to form the Institute for Educational Research and Innovation Studies (IERIS).
