Results of Reading Assessment for Learners Who Read Braille

As part of the United States Agency for International Development (USAID) Malawi Early Grade Reading Activity (EGRA), Perkins International worked with the EGRA team to create and administer a new reading assessment tool developed for children who are blind or visually impaired and use braille as their primary literacy medium. The assessment tool, entitled “EGRA for Braille Readers,” was developed by adapting the EGRA Learner Assessment Tool (LAT) to include the most relevant reading assessment subtests for braille readers. This report summarises the findings of the pilot implementation of the EGRA for Braille Readers in Malawi.
