Minnesota Reading Corps is the largest AmeriCorps State program in the country. Its mission is to help every Minnesota child become a proficient reader by the end of third grade. To meet this goal, the Minnesota Reading Corps and its host organization, ServeMinnesota Action Network, engages a diverse group of AmeriCorps members to provide evidence-based literacy enrichment and tutoring services to preschool (PreK) students and at-risk Kindergarten through third grade (K-3) elementary school students. The report, commissioned by the Corporation for National and Community Service (CNCS), described the results of a quasi-experimental design (QED) outcome evaluation of 1,534, 3-, 4-, and 5-year old PreK students who attended either a Minnesota Reading Corps PreK program site or a comparison site during the 2013-2014 school year. Students were enrolled at 25 Minnesota Reading Corps PreK sites and 25 comparison PreK sites matched to each Minnesota Reading Corp on specific site-level characteristics. The goal of the outcome evaluation was to determine the effects of the Minnesota Reading Corps program on PreK students' emergent literacy skills. These appendices of the final report include: Logic Model for the Process and Impact Evaluation of MRC; School Matching Validity Analysis; Detailed Methodology; Fall-Winter Models and Effects Tables; Fall-Spring Models and Effects Tables; Findings from Robustness Analysis; IES What Works Clearinghouse Analysis; and a Glossary.
