Utah UPSTART program evaluation kindergarten outcomes: Program impacts on reading proficiency: Cohort 2 results: Technical report [Executive summary]

Description:
Established as a pilot demonstration project by the Utah state legislature, UPSTART uses educational technology in a home-based approach to develop the school readiness skills of preschool children. A majority (60%) of the 1,018 preschool children enrolled in the second year of UPSTART were from low income families. The evaluation of UPSTART's second year of implementation used a pretest-posttest control group design to assess the program's impact on developing the children's early literacy skills in preschool. Other objectives included documenting the extent to which participants used the computerized curriculum; establishing the relationship between curriculum usage and literacy outcomes; and documenting the program's completion or "graduation" rate.
