Miller-Unruh Reading Center: The Comparison of Progress in Reading with Second and Third Grade Students.
Williams, Mildred C.
The study reported was designed to test the hypothesis that no difference in reading achievement scores of second and third grade children requiring remediation would result between Ss receiving both regular classroom and Miller-Unruh Reading Center instruction and Ss receiving classroom instruction only. Reading Center instruction took a diagnostic-eclectic approach during 25-30 minute periods four times per week for three to seven months, depending upon how soon Ss achieved reading grade level. Ss were selected first for Center treatment if their scores on the SAT Primary 1 and 2 fell three to six months below grade level. Pairs of experimental and control Ss were matched on the basis of I.Q., chronological age, sex, classroom group, grade level, grade retention, socio-cultural background, academic retardation level, and identical twins. The t-test for matched groups by the direct difference method revealed no significant difference between means at .05 and .01 levels for the second grade group; however, third grade experimental Ss attained a significant difference at the .01 level.
