UPSTART is an in-home, technology-delivered kindergarten readiness program that gives preschool aged children individualized reading, math and science instruction with a focus on reading.
In Utah, UPSTART is publicly funded to help children prepare to enter kindergarten. As part of that program, the state requires an independent evaluation of UPSTART each year. Every year, an external evaluation conducted by the Evaluation and Training Institute (ETI) has found UPSTART children showed significantly stronger learning rates on two well-known reading tests than children in a control group.
