Measuring Progress of Fourth Grade Pupils Enrolled in the Remedial Program in Reading of the After-School Study Centers. Final Report.
Forlano, George; Abramson, Jack
Experimental analysis of the results of an ESEA/Title I remedial reading program utilizing after-school study centers is presented. An experimental group of 1,521 New York city fourth-grade students who were enrolled in the reading program was compared with a matched control group from the same schools and a matched group from schools not having an after-school program. The final mean reading grade scores of the experimental and control groups were compared, and the t-test for correlated groups was applied to determine significant differences. After 1 school year, the experimental students as a group gained about 27 to 32 percent more reading growth than the control students who became more retarded in relation to grade placement between initial and final testing. Charts and tables are included. Program costs are estimated. (RT)
