Key Findings
  • The community engagement intervention reached parents and increased parent engagement in reading at home.
  • Teachers and parents were more likely to communicate, but there were mixed effects on teacher outcomes.
  • We found likely positive impacts on some building block reading skills, but possible neutral or negative effects on more advanced reading skills. 
In this report, the RF MERL consortium outlines its findings from a rigorous evaluation of LPT’s community engagement activities. The team used a randomized control trial as well as qualitative data to understand whether community engagement activities reinforced LPT’s goal of improving early grade reading. Analyses including Bayesian analysis show activities have significant positive impacts in several, but not all, domains, including family behaviors relating to reading and early reading competencies.
