Are Our Children Learning? Literacy and Numeracy Across East Africa - 2012
Literacy and Numeracy Across East Africa
This report compiles, compares and presents the headline findings of the 2011 Uwezo national assessments in Kenya, Uganda, and Tanzania (mainland). These assessments constitute by far the largest such exercise of its kind in Africa. About 350,000 children in over 150,000 households across the three countries were tested in their ability to perform basic numeracy and literacy tasks at the Standard 2 level. Standard 2 represents the ground level competencies expected after completing two years of primary education.
