As part of the continuing evaluation of the implementation of Reading Recovery, schools with Reading Recovery are asked to provide information for the Ministry of Education on an annual basis. This information is used to examine trends in the delivery of Reading Recovery and the progress of students, and to assist the Ministry in developing policies regarding literacy.
Background; Reading Recovery is an early literacy intervention designed to achieve two outcomes:
- to accelerate the reading and writing progress of students who have not made expected progress in learning to read and write after one year at school
- to identify the small number of students who will need further, ongoing literacy support.
