The Learning at Scale study identified eight of the most effective large-scale education programs in low- and middle-income countries and now is examining what factors contribute to successful improvements in learning outcomes at scale. These programs were selected based on their demonstrated gains in reading outcomes at-scale, from either midline or endline impact evaluations. The study addresses three overarching research questions, focused on understanding (1) the components of instructional practices (Brief 1), (2) instructional supports (Brief 2), and (3) system supports (Brief 3) that lead to effective instruction.
