Introduction

This report presents a summative process and outcome evaluation of Reading Recovery in Aotearoa. An overview of the findings, evaluative judgements and considerations is presented in Section 4. This evaluation was a rapid review conducted from April to July 2019. There was insufficient data available to support an economic evaluation at that time. The evaluation was designed to address the following key questions on Reading Recovery outcomes and processes:

Outcome evaluation

  • What is the impact on children’s literacy and educational achievement?
  • What is the impact on reduced variation in a cohort’s literacy and educational achievement?
  • What is the impact on the school culture and capacity to sustain a focus on literacy development?
  • What are the longer-term impacts on adult literacy?

Process evaluation

  • What is the reach and spread of schools accessing Reading Recovery?
  • What is the reach and spread of children accessing Reading Recovery?
  • How is Reading Recovery implemented?

The evidence from this evaluation is designed to support decision making about future delivery and/or any potential improvements or adaptations to Reading Recovery.
