Literacy Research Initiative

Literacy Research Initiative

The Literacy Research Initiative (LRI) is a comprehensive online collection that highlights the most recent research and most rigorous research studies on adult and adolescent literacy - specifically reading, writing, and math. The LRI was designed to bring together information on federally and non-federally funded research, including evaluation research on literacy and basic skills to create a comprehensive picture of the knowledge base on literacy.

The LRI provides information about Federally-funded research, from such agencies as the Department of Labor, National Science Foundation, National Institute of Child Health and Human Development and other agencies, and describes] the findings of research studies and notes reports and journal articles connected to the studies. In addition, there are citations of published materials, links to abstracts of studies, and ancillary materials generated through some of the studies.
