Children's pre-k experiences and outcomes in the North Carolina pre-kindergarten program: 2014-2015 statewide evaluation
The purpose of the 2014-2015 NC Pre-Kindergarten (NC Pre-K) Evaluation study was to examine the characteristics and quality of the program and the outcomes for children during pre-k, along with comparisons to previous years. Since the inception of the statewide pre-k program in North Carolina in 2001-2002, the evaluation has been conducted by the FPG Child Development Institute at the University of North Carolina-Chapel Hill. See Table 1 for a list of previous reports for further information about prior years, including studies of classroom quality and longitudinal and comparison studies of children's outcomes. The primary research questions addressed by this evaluation included: 1) What were the outcomes of children attending the NC Pre-K Program and what factors were associated with better outcomes?, 2) What was the quality of the NC Pre-K classrooms attended by children and what factors were associated with better quality?, and 3) What were the key characteristics of the local NC Pre-K programs?
