Formative Evaluation of the Ignite Experiences for Young Children from Hatch Early Learning


A formative evaluation of Ignite Experiences was conducted by a third-party researcher from the University of North Carolina Charlotte. The research was conducted using the entire population of 3 and 4-year-old children who used Ignite during the 2020-2021 academic year (n = 29,417).

At a high-level the research found that:
• There is validity evidence for the instructional usefulness of Ignite by Hatch
• 4-year-old children outperformed 3-year-old children 97.4% of the time
• There is a match between intended skill level and experience difficulty for 175 (91.2%) of the experiences
