This assessment aimed to provide baseline Global Partnership for Education (GPE) programme indicators for assessing and monitoring children’s reading and mathematics skills. By using the Early Grade Reading and Mathematics Assessment (EGRA/EGMA), the study sought to establish the state of children’s developmental reading skills and captured children’s ability on number identification, discrimination, patterns, and subtraction. Furthermore, the assessment gathered information on factors in schools, homes and classrooms that affect children’s ability to become literate and numerate.
