Cost Effectiveness of a Complementary Reading Program
Misty Sailors, Miguel Flores

We used a quasi-experimental, pre- post-test design to measure the cost effectiveness of a complementary reading program. Our findings indicated that the educational innovation under discussion was particularly effective in changing teacher practices and attitudes and that had the intervention been in place longer than four months, we would have seen greater reading achievement of learners in these classrooms. Our cost effective ratios and relative cost effective ratio indicated that the intervention was much more cost effective than business as usual in Malawi. Our study has implications for policy makers around the world.
