Nigeria Reading and Access Research Activity 4-State EGRA Instruments

In May and June 2014, the Nigeria Reading and Access Research Activity (RARA) and the National Bureau of Statistics (NBS) administered the early grade reading assessment (EGRA) in Hausa and English to 3,803 pupils in Jigawa, Kaduna, Kano, and Katsina states. The pupils were randomly sampled from Primary 2 (P2), Primary 3 (P3), and Stage 1 and Cohort 3 (S1) classes from 127 government schools and 128 integrated Qur’anic and Tsangaya (IQTE) centers. All pupils were tested in Hausa, and P3 pupils were also tested in English. The purpose of the exercise was to identify whether children are acquiring reading skills in the two languages, Hausa and English, they are required to learn as part of the basic education curriculum.
