Independent Evalution Results Prove
Early Learning Curriculum a Gamechanger

Independent Evaluation

Research for Action (RFA), a Philadelphia-based non-profit research organization conducted an independent, 3-year evaluation of Blueprint, to analyze the quality of implementation and impact on teachers and student outcomes. 

In this rigorous study, RFA assessed Blueprint's implementation across 11 Pre-K centers in Philadelphia. They also assessed the professional development we provide through training workshops and one-on-one coaching.

The Results Are In!

Student Literacy Skills

Children in Blueprint classrooms outpaced their peers in literacy skill development. 

  • Children in CLI-served classrooms made 2-3 months of additional progress in vocabulary development compared to children in similar classrooms not supported by CLI.
  • Nearly all (96%) of surveyed Blueprint teachers reported their students had made “quite a bit” or “a great deal of progress” in language and literacy activities since Fall 2017, and attributed student progress to supports from CLI.

Teacher Knowledge

Blueprint teachers reported stronger ability to implement best practices, relative to teachers in comparison centers. Data suggests:

  • Nearly all (85%) of Blueprint teachers reported high levels of knowledge about effective practices, compared to 73% of teachers in comparison centers.
  • Nearly all (96%) of Blueprint teachers reported feeling able to implement best practices, compared to 73% of teachers in comparison centers, a statistically significant difference.

Pre-K teachers share how Blueprint enables them to implement best practices.

Student Engagement

Children in Blueprint classrooms showed increases in engagement from Fall to Spring in language and literacy activities, compared to children in comparison classrooms. 

  • Most Blueprint teachers (89%) and comparison teachers (82%) reported high levels of student engagement in language and literacy activities.
  • Nearly all (93%) of Blueprint teachers reported significant growth in student engagement from Fall to Spring, compared to 76% of teachers in comparison centers.

Teacher Job Satisfaction

Blueprint teachers reported stronger ability to implement best practices, relative to teachers in comparison centers. Data suggests:

  • Nearly all (85%) of Blueprint teachers reported high levels of knowledge about effective practices, compared to 73% of teachers in comparison centers.
  • Nearly all (96%) of Blueprint teachers reported feeling able to implement best practices, compared to 73% of teachers in comparison centers, a statistically significant difference.
