Measure Of Success
Statewide average for Tennessee: 15% of families in TN reported reading with their children every day in a typical week.
Zogby Analytics was commissioned by TQEE to conduct a new survey of 2,507 Tennessee parents with a child under age 9. The survey is large-scale, new (administered June 23, 2022 through August 1, 2022), and has a sampling frame that matches the Tennessee demographics (race, age, family size) for households with a child under age 9, labor market conditions in Tennessee (earnings, sector of work), and regional populations. Based on a confidence interval of 95 percent, the margin of error for the 2,507 surveys is +/- 2.0 percentage points. The regional analysis is based regional oversampling.
The parent survey question for this indicator was adapted from the American Time Use Survey:
The gold standard for reading with children is every day (7 days a week). Maternal, Infant, and Early Childhood Home Visiting program uses this measure for their early literacy benchmark (Measure 11) as noted in pages 38-40 of the MIECHV performance measure guidance. It is important to note that this benchmark is for children under 6 yrs and our survey includes children under 9 years.
