Publication Type: Panel Paper
Abstract: The paper presents the preliminary findings of baseline and follow-up studies of student learning outcomes resulted from inputs of Rural Education and Development (READ) project funded by the World Bank. The goal of this impact evaluation exercise was to see whether there have been any changes in the literacy skills of rural primary students comparing their skills before the reading intervention (classroom libraries with 160 books) and after the project implementation. Special tests on reading comprehension, writing skills, listening skills, Peabody international test and mathematics skills tests were developed and used for this study. In addition, background surveys from teachers and students have been administered and analyzed. The paper will also interpret changes occurred in overall school setting in terms of professional qualification and attitudes of teachers towards their profession, and attitudes of parents towards schooling as the project has been implemented.
