Evaluation of Indiana's Early Education Matching Grant program: 2015-16

Indiana policymakers initiated public prekindergarten services for eligible 4-old children in 2014. During the first two years of the Early Education Matching Grant (EEMG) the state awarded program funds to 36 eligible high-quality early education programs. Many programs participated in both Year 1 (2014-15) and Year 2 (2015-16). In the second year, 19 programs provided full-year services to 326 children from low-income families. As part of this initial prekindergarten effort, Indiana contracted with Indiana University's Early Childhood Center (ECC) to conduct an evaluation of EEMG during its first two years. This report provides an overview of the evaluation of the EEMG-funded efforts conducted during Year 2. The focus of the evaluation was to look at children's gains in learning early academic and school readiness skills, (including classroom social skills and behaviors), the quality of families' engagement in their children's learning and development, and classroom quality.
