EGRA and EGMA Reports

Early Grade Reading Assessment (EGRA)  and Early Grade Math Assessment (EGMA) were developed by the Research Triangle Institute (RTI) in conjunction with USAID. 

Our EGRA and EGMA programme includes a multi-­‐year, pupil-­‐matched study, measuring the foundational literacy and numeracy skills of our pupils and their academic peers in neighbouring schools to understand both absolute and relative pupil performance.  In the Bridge Effect, we highlight the results from the 2013-2014 administrations of EGRA/EGMA, based on a nationally representative sample of more than 2,700 pupils first assessed in October 2013.
