Montrose has been contracted to assess the levels of proficiency in literacy and numeracy competencies among early grade learners in South Sudan as part of the Education in Emergencies Programme (EEP).

The EEP, from October 2016 to October 2017, aims to address the deficiencies in P3 learners’ ability to read in national languages and English language by providing relevant training to teachers in Jonglei, Unity, Upper Nile, Lakes, Western and Central Equatoria States of South Sudan. Montrose will assess the levels of proficiency in literacy and numeracy among P3 learners that are impacted by the EEP by conducting baseline and end-line studies using Early Grade Reading Assessments (EGRA) and Early Grade Mathematics Assessments (EGMA) in English language and 5 national languages. The methodology will be designed to illustrate the impact of the programme on actual learning.
