Below are the test scores of students from the Holston United Methodist Home for Children in Greeneville, Tennessee, where the Be Smart Kids program was evaluated for one year. The study was conducted by the Departments of Education and Psychology at Tusculum University, with assistance from Kids Can, Inc. (a nonprofit organization established to benefit at-risk children).

The Brigance Test was used as the instrument for the pretest/posttest for the two – (6) month periods of evaluation.

By the end of the first year, the Be Smart Kids (Experimental Group’s) scores had surpassed the Control’s Group’s scores.
