Evaluation of Rural Literacy Initiative Focused on Effectiveness (Rural LIFE)

Project Case Study
The Challenge

Our client received an Education Innovation and Research grant and needed an external evaluator to design and carry out a randomized controlled trial evaluation.

The Client

Niswonger Foundation

What We Did

AnLar helped recruit schools, conducted the random assignment, collected data, conducted a fidelity of implementation study, and is conducting an impact evaluation. AnLar provides formative feedback to the Niswonger Foundation about the literacy achievement of students, personalized learning strategies utilized in project schools, and how coaches are working with schools. The reports produced by AnLar help the Niswonger Foundation improve the program and thus improve the literacy achievement of students.
