Project Abstract

The Colorado Evaluation and Action Lab is supporting the Imagination Library of Colorado (ILCO) in assessing the impact the book program is having on kindergarten readiness. Because the state of Colorado does not collect student-level kindergarten-readiness data, a statewide study is not possible. Instead, the Colorado Lab is targeting a few school districts that have a large number of ILCO book program participants residing in their catchment areas to share data through the Linked Information Network of Colorado (LINC). The evaluation will compare ILCO program graduates to demographically similar students at the same school district who have not participated in the ILCO program.
