USAID/Ghana Partnership for Education: Testing

As a task order under the EdData II project, RTI is administering the Early Grade Reading Assessment (EGRA) and the Early Grade Mathematics Assessment (EGMA) in Ghana to carefully evaluate student performance in foundational reading and mathematics skills. The project is also using a student questionnaire to evaluate classroom and school management practices and students' family and socioeconomic situation. The sample includes approximately 550 schools, equally distributed over the 10 regions. Within each school, the project will test all P3 and P6 students, for a total sample size of between 40,000 and 45,000 students. Findings from the assessment will help inform Ghana's ongoing education reform process by understanding which foundational skills are being mastered, in addition to understanding classroom and school practices that may encourage or hinder this mastery of skills.
