Evaluating the Outcomes of Literacy Training: A Feasibility Study

Challenges inherent in evaluating literacy training programs include strict confidentiality policies, the reluctance to "test" students, irregular meeting schedules, and the limited attention span of low-literate students. Guided by interviews and focus groups, this project explored the feasibility of tutor-based assessments in three domains: cognitive skills, functional literacy, and literacy-related self-confidence.
