This report examines the results of a learner background survey and numeracy assessment conducted in Shaheed Benazir Abad and Lodhran, Pakistan, prior to beginning the Numeracy Boost (NB) intervention and again after 15 months of implementation. The baseline survey and numeracy assessment covered 540 grade 2 learners throughout 80 schools and was administered in June 2014. The January 2016 follow-up gathered data again only in Shaheed Benazir Abad from 82 of these children and 199 replacement children. The learner background survey covered student socio-economic status and Home Numeracy Environment questions amongst others. The numeracy assessment covered three constructs: numbers and operations, geometry and measurement. Also, three time identification questions were included in the assessment.
