RTI International is an independent, nonprofit institute that provides research, development and technical services to government and commercial clients worldwide. With a global staff of more than 4,000 people, RTI’s mission is to improve the human condition by turning knowledge into practice.
RTI International has been tasked with implementing a project focused on the improvement of early reading outcomes in primary grades using mother tongue instruction and English transition strategies and improvement of HIV/AIDS education. As part of this task, RTI will conduct mother tongue and English reading assessments as well as HIV/AIDS content assessments at baseline, midterm and final assessment. By conducting several representative quantitative and qualitative assessments in a sample of schools, RTI will provide invaluable information for improving instruction in early mother tongue reading in P1-4. Quantitative assessments will focus on mother tongue and English reading, knowledge of HIV/AIDS information and socio-economic status type questions.
