Achievement Outcomes of Two Reading Programs: An Instance of Aptitude-Treatment Interaction. Technical Report No. 174.
Tirre, William C.; And Others
The reading achievement test performance of 180 sixth grade students in contrasting reading programs was examined. One program (Matteson) was an explicitly sequenced, behaviorally oriented skills program; the other (Scott Foresman) placed more emphasis on rich language experience and less emphasis on specific skill development. An aptitude-treatment interaction was found: higher ability students in the Scott Foresman program outperformed those in the Matteson program, while the lower ability students in the Matteson program scored higher than those in the Scott Foresman Program.
