Development and Pilot Testing of Additional Subtasks for the Early Grade Reading Assessment: EGRA 2.0

The Early Grade Reading Assessment (EGRA) is an open-source assessment composed of individual subtasks that measure some of the foundational skills needed for reading acquisition. Developed initially in 2006 by RTI International with funding from the World Bank and the United States Agency for International Development (USAID), as of mid-2016 the EGRA had been adapted in over 100 languages for use by more than 50 organizations in over 70 countries (search the Global Reading Network website for the 2016 EGRA Toolkit, Second Edition). It is administered individually in an interaction between a trained assessor and an individual, usually a child in primary school.
