Ghana Read Along Impact Evaluation

In Ghana, formal education is taught in English from grade 3 onwards, but many girls have limited exposure to English in their past schooling and daily lives. Their English language literacy skills are low, with the majority of students struggling to pronounce basic letter sounds, let alone comprehend grade-level text.

World Education in collaboration with Ghana Education Services and Google implemented the three-month pilot to address English language proficiency gaps of students in primary school. The pilot’s goal was to evaluate the effectiveness of leveraging the Google Read Along app and engaging teaching and community members to establish a supportive learning environment to enhance literacy outcomes and understand how these insights might inform future initiatives in similar contexts.

This report presents the findings from the impact evaluation of the Google Read Along pilot project conducted between May and August 2023 in Northern Ghana.
