An Examination of Student Progress in Tacoma's Remediation Assistance Program (RAP) Compared with Progress of Similar Non-RAP Students.
The progress of elementary school students in Tacoma, Washington's Remediation Assistance Program (RAP) was examined and compared with the progress of similar non-RAP students. Pretest and posttest scores for RAP and non-RAP students in reading, mathematics and language were compared statistically, and no significant difference was found between the two groups. Students given remedial instruction did not appear to perform differently from similar students receiving regular classroom instruction when assessed with standardized, grade-level objective tests.
