This report presents findings from the evaluation of Individual Learning Plans (ILPs), one of several initiatives funded under the National Partnership on Literacy and Numeracy (NPLN). The seven schools involved in the program implemented literacy based ILPs as part of a whole -class intervention. The evaluation comprised site visits, interviews and surveys and analysis of documentation including NAPLAN results. Findings were consistent across all schools that ILP’s improved reading outcomes. However, as ILPs were not the only intervention it is difficult to attribute improvement solely to ILPs.
