The measures, their administration, and the encouragement treatment of the field study are discussed in the next sections. A results section presents the main findings of the three studies, concluding that the findings showed a very strong effect of Sesame Street on most of the ability measures employed, but that the observed effects of the program were due mainly to the intelligent viewing of it.
