Uganda School Health and Reading Program Early Grade Reading Assessment Cluster 1 Follow Up 3

This brief looks at whether or not reading achievement increased as a result of the USAID/Uganda School Health and Reading Program interventions. Using the Early Grade Reading Assessment, data collected for 4 Cluster 1 languages (Ateso, Leblango, Luganda and Runyankore-Rukiga) and English at the beginning of Primary 1 compared to end of Primary 3 show increases in fundamental reading skills, higher than increases found in control schools.
