Story Behind the Curve

In FY19-20, several programs were not able to conduct their post-literacy assessment due to covid-19 related school and program closures. Because they DID conduct the pre-assessment, the denominator (the number assessed total) stayed high while the numerator (the number given the post-test who maintained or improved) dropped. This resulted in an apparent dramatic drop in literacy skills (from 97.3% to 75.8%) from FY18-19 to FY19-20. If this data point is calculated just for those agencies that were able to do both a pre- and post-assessment, the corrected percentage for FY19-20 stands at 90.3% (282 who maintained or improved literacy skills from pre to post-assessment / 312 total who were assessed).
