Ready Reading and Ready Mathematics instruction meet the criteria for the United States Department of Education as evidence-based interventions. This means that Ready programs are eligible for School Improvement Funds as well as other federal and state grant programs.
A 2018 research study on the impact of Ready Reading and Ready Mathematics instruction on student academic proficiency found that students who had access to the Ready program experienced substantially higher scores on the state assessment than students who did not have access to Ready. The results of this study state that Ready programs meet the criteria for ESSA Level 3: Promising Evidence, with favorable effects.
