There are several ways that Page Ahead measures the results of its Book Up Summer and Story Leader programs. Using hard and soft data, Page Ahead constantly evaluates results from school test scores on reading, as well as parent and teacher surveys, to ensure that programs are efficient and effective.


Every year data is collected from all Page Ahead program sites to determine whether children show a heightened interest in reading, involve their parents in reading activities at home, borrow more books from the library, and show improved vocabulary and writing skills. In addition, Page Ahead monitors trends in reading and writing abilities among students across the State.
