research summary
Research Summary

Improved overall performance

Preschool children who watched Super WHY! performed significantly better on nearly all program specific measures and most of the standardized measures of early reading achievement when compared with those preschool children who watched an alternate program.

High levels of engagement – Nearly all of the children (97 percent) who rated the show and its characters gave Super WHY! high marks, so not only are young viewers learning, but they also find the content entertaining and engaging.

research summary1
Research Summary

Growth on targeted literacy skills – Super WHY! viewers’ pre-test to post-test gain on tasks that measured phonological and phonemic awareness averaged 29 percent compared with an average gain of 13 percent for children in the control group.

Improved pre-reading skills – Children participating in the Super WHY! group were 24 percent faster at naming letters and 44 percent faster at naming sounds when compared to children in the control group.

research summary2
Research Summary
  • Gains for low-income and working class children. Low-income and working class children showed substantial improvement on tests measuring phonological, phonemic, and symbolic awareness:
    • Among Super WHY! viewers, low-income and working class children scored 46 percent higher than low-income and working class children in the control group on standardized tests, whereas middle class children scored 11 percent higher than middle class children in the control group
    • Eighty-one (81) percent of low-income and working class Super WHY! viewers compared with 62 percent of low-income and working class children in the control group were able to identify at least 16 upper case and 9 lower case letter names. Many of the middle class children had already mastered most of these skills before the study began.
