Follow-up Field Visit 2

The aim of the visit is to evaluate the interventions of the teachers at the three project schools. One of the project schools (Enkeldoorn Primary) was closed at the start of the year.

The learners' knowledge of basic concepts will be independently evaluated by students from the Univeristy of the Witwatersrand.

Word knowledge will also be evaluated during this visit.

The results of these tests will be compared to the baseline data and data that has been gathered anually since the start of the project in 2014.

The Project Team Leader and Project Field Worker will also visit all the project classes to determine, from a more qualitative perspective, the alphabetic and basic concepts knowledge of the learners. A set of novel visual stimuli has been created to illicit discussion about basic concepts.

The learners' verbal fluency and usage of conceptual language will be captured during these discussions.
