The Language, Learning, Literacy program evaluation aimed to determine whether teachers who undertook professional learning from a qualified trainer developed improved techniques for planning and delivering instruction to small groups and classes. The methodology measured student improvement levels by using students’ end-of-year data gathered from the previous year’s cohort at each school, and compared it with the data of current students and their progress over a school year. The authors stated that the program achieved its goals of: 50 per cent of all students reading and writing above end-of-year expectations and only 20 per cent of students reading and writing below end-of-year expectations.
