For Supporting Local NGOs To Grow And Innovate On The TaRL Approach In Africa

Overview
Teaching at the Right Level (TaRL) is a pedagogical approach that involves evaluating children using a simple assessment tool, and then grouping them according to learning level rather than age or grade. The Abdul Latif Jameel Poverty Action Lab (J-PAL) at the Massachusetts Institute of Technology and its partner Pratham have extensively evaluated this approach, showing that it substantially raises reading and math learning outcomes. With this grant, J-PAL and Pratham will launch a competitive implementation funding window for local African NGOs. These NGOs will develop and expand locally grounded approaches to TaRL, share innovations with and learn from the TaRL Africa Community of Practice, and support governments considering implementing TaRL.
