Residual Gain of Remedial Students at Kean College Reading Clinic.
To determine whether remedial readers in the Kean College (New Jersey) reading clinic made a significant gain in reading, 70 sample cases were taken from the 128 most recent remediation case studies in the files of the clinic. The sample included only students attending the diagnostic sessions and one remediation session. The remediation sessions consisted of a minimum of 13 sessions of approximately 1.5 hours. Each student's total reading mastery score from the Woodcock Reading Mastery Tests was recorded and converted to a standard score. Residual gain was then determined. Results showed that 65% of the students demonstrated residual gain. It was concluded that although remediation included only 13 sessions, when statistical measures were employed, the majority of remedial students demonstrated residual gain. (HOD)
