LINC measures the efficacy of its programs using evidence-based research. In 2012, LINC hired Phillips Wyatt Knowlton, a measurement and management resource firm to evaluate its programs and provide a baseline for charting impact. In 2013-14, LINC observed and measured the following among its cohorts of teachers and families.
“Collectively, this evidence demonstrates LINC’s positive progress with parents and educators relative to children’s early literacy skill and the associated context of a reading-rich culture…Data indicates the program is improving vulnerable children’s lives in important ways.”
