Amber Gove, PhD, is focused on the development of the Early Grade Reading Assessment (EGRA), a system-level diagnostic for understanding students' foundation skills in reading. To date, EGRA has been used in more than 50 languages and countries to inform policy and improve instruction. In this video, Dr. Gove describes efforts to improve resources within schools to enable and encourage students to learn to read. 

Dr. Gove has more than a dozen years of experience collaborating with government education departments in project design and evaluation, research and data analysis, and policy dialogue. She is fluent in both Spanish and Portuguese and has worked closely with government counterparts in more than a dozen countries—most recently in Nicaragua and The Gambia—to design and implement complex education projects and to develop plans to track project progress. Her research and policy interests include improvement and measurement of student learning; education finance; conditional cash transfer programs; and factors affecting achievement, enrollment, and attendance.
