This brief presents findings from an impact evaluation of the PAQUED (Project D’Amelioration de la Qualite de l’Education) project’s six-month experimental reading intervention in the Democratic Republic of Congo (DRC). PAQUED was developed as part of EDC’s Read Right Now! early grade and youth literacy initiative.
- After only six months of intervention, students in experimental schools significantly outperformed students in control schools.
- Teachers maintained their daily reading activity routines without external coaching as evidenced through classroom observations.
