EGR Barometer data are from the USAID-funded Yemen 2011 EdData II Early Grade Reading Assessment (EGRA). The study was conducted in the three governorates of Amran, Lahj, and Sana’a. Forty schools were randomly selected, and the EGRA was administered to a total of 735 students in grades 2 and 3.
Oral reading fluency (ORF) is a measure of overall reading competence. Zero scores indicate the proportion of students who could not perform one task correctly.
