Experience Conducting EGRAs with Children with Disabilities (CIES 2018 presentation)

This presentation was presented as part of the panel, The Equity Initiative: Gathering and Utilizing Data on Children with Disabilities in Education, at CIES 2018.

This presentation shares lessons learned around methods for adapting, piloting and administering EGRA to students with disabilities, including both success and ongoing challenges. It highlights the undocumented regional sign language variations in one country as a key challenge in adapting reading assessment for sign language users there. Finally, the presentation discusses the impacts that these assessments’ results have had on government stakeholders’ priorities and decisions around materials provision and teacher training designed specifically for students with disabilities.
