Impact of COVID-19 on Attitudes and Cognitive Skills of Ugandan Primary Students After 12 Months of School Closures

Supported by the Fund for Innovation & Transformation, Embrace International Foundation and Kyaninga Child Development Center wanted to understand the impact of 12 months of school closures due to COVID-19 on primary students in rural Western Uganda. The project team evaluated the cognitive skills of 437 randomly selected grade 5 and 6 students through math and literacy tests. Non-cognitive skills (including self-confidence, intrinsic motivation, and level of aspiration), as well as students’ views about gender equality, were also explored through one-on-one interviews.
