Study

E-Blocks USA commissioned an independent evaluation of the E-Blocks program from Educational Support Systems, Inc. -- a company with extensive experience in program evaluation.

ESS collected information from a sample of California public school sites over a period of several months. ESS evaluators visited sites, reviewed test results, and spoke with educators during every step of the E-Blocks experience.

While the study and assessments are on-going, preliminary results are exciting and reinforce the guidelines for enhanced literacy development with E-Blocks. The study involves children in kindergarten, first grade and some older children in a pull-out or sheltered program for language development.
