Supporting Holistic and Actionable Research in Education (SHARE): Receptive and Expressive Language Module (RELM)
The U.S. Agency for International Development (USAID)’s Receptive and Expressive Language Module (RELM) is intended to fill a knowledge gap by assessing relevant aspects of receptive and productive language proficiency skills among learners in pre-primary and primary grades across low-and middle-income countries, in order to better understand the language abilities that are known predictors for literacy acquisition. IDP is supporting the University of Notre Dame’s Pulte Institute for Global Development to continue its work developing and refining the RELM by advising on universal design updates to the tool and adaptation guide. IDP will also lead the process of designing, piloting and validating a RELM for learners who are blind and learners who are deaf in 2 countries.
