“The development of public policies in the field of literacy depends on the existence of accurate and constantly updated data on learning and its impact on beneficiaries’ capacities. There is no point in continuing to implement literacy programmes ... without assessing learning achievements and measuring their effectiveness”, Mr Abdellah Benkirane, Head of the Government of Morocco

The sixth international action research workshop on measuring literacy programme participants’ learning outcomes (RAMAA) was held in Abidjan, Côte d’Ivoire from 4 to 6 May 2015.
