In July 2013, the National Baseline Assessment for 3Rs (Reading, Writing, and Arithmetic) Using Early Grade Reading Assessment (EGRA), Early Grade Mathematics Assessment (EGMA), and Snapshot of School Management Effectiveness (SSME) was initiated. The purpose of this assessment was to monitor the achievement levels of students in the early grades with regard to foundational skills in reading, writing, and arithmetic. The National Baseline Assessment for the 3Rs uses the EGRA (Kiswahili and English), EGMA, and SSME instruments to provide data that can be translated into an evidence base to inform policy decisions and interventions with respect to the early grades.
