A qualitative study of the Even Start Family Literacy Program

by Ruth, Sarah.

Abstract (Summary)
The ADVOCAP Even Start Family Literacy Program is a program which provides participating families with an integrated program of early childhood education, adult basic education, English as a second language, parenting education, and interactive literacy activities between parents and their children. As required by the stipulations in the Even Start Family Literacy Grant, they are required to have a local evaluator monitor the program and report to the state of Wisconsin every year. The current evaluations that are done are strictly quantitative in nature and are outcome derived based upon the requirements of established core indicators. Recommendations for improvement of the program are derived from outcome data. A qualitative study which interviews participants would be beneficial to the program. The results of the study would allow insight into strength and weakness areas as well as guide the improvements of shortcomings detailed in the local evaluation.
