Summary: This evaluation set out to determine the effectiveness of the numeracy program, TOWN and the extent to which it met the goals of delivering evidence based teaching strategies in numeracy, strong school leadership and whole school engagement. TOWN was implemented in 41 schools around NSW for Years 3-6 students. The evaluation involved school visits, an online survey of teachers, stakeholder interviews, and an analysis of student outcome data. The evaluation clearly demonstrated that TOWN had a positive impact on schools and delivered numeracy outcomes for teachers and, in some cases, students.
