The LIT Programme

Published: March 2014

Aims

We've evaluated the LIT programme – a reading intervention for pupils in Year 7 of secondary school with below expected levels of literacy. 

This project was commissioned by the Education Endowment Foundation in partnership with Institute for Fiscal Studies.

Publication

You can read the report on the EEF's website.

Methods

We're conducting a qualitative process evaluation as well as providing support with the tests. The Institute for Fiscal Studies is leading a randomised control trial of the intervention. 

Forty schools are taking part in the programme: 20 schools will deliver LIT to eligible pupils during 2012-13 and 20 schools will offer the programme in 2013-14.

The second group of schools will act as a comparison in the first year so that we can find out how LIT impacts on Year 7 pupils’ reading ability.
