Literacy Boost, Gampaha District Sri Lanka Country Office Endline Report – December 2014

This report examines the results of a learner background survey and reading assessment conducted in September 2014 as the endline evaluation of the USAID All Children Reading (ACR) Grand Challenge in Sri Lanka. The survey and reading assessment was administered to as many of the same children assessed during the January/February 2013 baseline as could be found. The endline survey and reading assessment covered 519 grade 3 learners throughout 30 schools in three Education Divisions.

Among 257 Literacy Boost (LB) students and 262 comparison students assessed during a January/February 2013 baseline and September 2014 endline, impact analysis reveals that the LB program significantly improved students’ reading fluency. This is especially true for students identified as slow learners at baseline. LB programming also helped students who screened positive for language & learning challenges catch up to their non-slow learner peers in almost every reading skill. However, all students still need help to improve their reading comprehension.
