Save the Children International (SCI) in Vietnam was introduced to Tangerine in August 2014 to conduct a learning assessment and health/nutrition knowledge, attitudes, and practices (KAP) survey of 900 primary school students in the Child Sponsorship program, located in the north of the country in Lao Cai province.
In 2013 in Pakistan, when School-to-School International conducted the largest Early Grade Reading Assessment (EGRA) to date, data collection and entry were labor intensive and protracted. STS, which is based outside of San Francisco in Pacifica, assessed 30,000 students in 1,120 schools across Pakistan. The project required countless reams of paper, sets of pencils, and hours of data entry.
