Connecting the dots: Raising A Reader builds evidence base for its parent engagement and early literacy program

Raising A Reader is working with Child Trends, an independent evaluator, to use research to continue to inform and improve its program and to prepare for a large-scale impact evaluation in typical RAR settings. This report offers a case study that may be informative to other programs in the parent engagement/early literacy field that seek to use a variety of informal and formal data effectively for continuous quality improvement and to build their evidence base. The report first summarizes the research base for family literacy programs and the emerging evidence base for RAR. It then describes the RAR program and how it uses a variety of data to regularly improve its program, inform programming integrity, and prepare for a randomized controlled trial. In closing, the report addresses the lessons for the broader field. (author abstract)
