Literacy Boost Zambia: Baseline Report 2014

This report examines the results of a learner background survey and reading assessment conducted in June 2013 as part of a Save the Children sponsorship baseline data collection.

The report analyzes data from a survey and reading assessment covering 383 grade 3 learners throughout 24 schools in Lufwanyama, in the Copperbelt province of Zambia. The 24 schools are split into 12 primary schools designated to receive Save the Children's (SC) Literacy Boost program, and 12 comparison primary schools receiving no intervention. The Literacy Boost program includes teacher training, community reading activities, and age-appropriate local language material creation to support emergent literacy skills among early-grade children. These skills include concepts about print, letter awareness, single word reading of most used words, reading fluency, reading accuracy, and reading comprehension.
