Montrose is implementing the UNICEF sponsored schools assessments project. Ascendant & Company (www.ascendantandcompany.com) is proud to be working with Montrose in providing human resources servies suppporting this project.
As part of the evaluation of this program, Montrose has been working to provide Early Grades Reading Assessment (EGRA) and Early Grades Math Assessment (EGMA) enumerator training leading to actual student assements in Sierra Leone Schools nationwide.
Ascendant is partnersing with Montrose to provide human resources services for the projects.
Sierra Leone assessors spent 8 days in enumerator training, 5 days in supervisors training and 2 days in refresher training learning about the EGRA and EGMA methodology and how to administer this 9-subtask assessment to children across the country using tablets and Tangerine software.
The data will be used to define the baseline on literacy and mathematics to enable effective program planning in support of governments Agenda for Prosperity.
