There are several ways that Page Ahead measures the results of its book distribution, family involvement, and community partnership programs. Using hard and soft data, Page Ahead constantly evaluates results to ensure that programs are efficient and effective.


Every year data is collected from all Page Ahead program sites to determine whether children show a heightened interest in reading, involve their parents in reading activities at home, borrow more books from the library, and show improved vocabulary and writing skills. In addition, Page Ahead monitors trends in reading and writing abilities among students across the State.


Anecdotal evidence also helps us to determine the results of our work.
