Most recently, a quasi-experimental study of HIPPY in Florida demonstrated that: 

  • The odds of passing the Florida Kindergarten Readiness Screener were almost two times greater for children who participated in the HIPPY program than a matched comparison group; and  
  • The odds of being promoted to first grade were five times greater (Payne et al., 2020).
