Introducing the Early Grade Reading Barometer
The Early Grade Reading Barometer Gets a New Look!
January 5, 2022

Welcome to the new Early Grade Reading Barometer! We've redesigned to better serve the education community by providing easy access to high quality data. It's now easier than ever to find results from reading programs and assessments from around the globe.

Sponsored by the USAID Asia Bureau, the EGR Barometer website features results from 50 reading assessments, conducted in 26 countries, in 65 languages. Get started by exploring the results.

What’s New in the EGR Barometer?

Enhanced Resources

Our team recognizes that literacy data is complex and can be hard to understand. Like all data, understanding the context in which it was collected is vital when analyzing and interpreting datasets. We're also aware that not everyone visiting our site is an expert, or even familiar with, reading acquisition, phonics, or Early Grade Reading Assessments (EGRA). To help, we've created 7 new resource articles to assist you in gathering the information and background you need to interpret literacy results.

News & Stories

Our team is excited to launch the News & Stories page on the EGR Barometer. This page will feature stories centered around our data and provide context to the goal and outcomes of the reading program in a given country.
