Evaluating a Visual-Linguistic, Multi-Media Approach to Primary Reading.
Brown, James I.
Results of two studies testing the effectiveness of the Visual-Linguistic Reading Program (Group A) as compared with that of a basal program using an overhead projector (Group B) and a basal program not using an overhead projector (Group C) are reported. Children from three cities in Minnesota, Florida, and California, 1,800 in the first study and 1,044 in the second, were pretested with the Metropolitan Reading Readiness Test and the Otis-Lennon Mental Ability Test and were tested at later times with Forms X and W of the Stanford Achievement tests. Results showed that Group A scored significantly higher than Group C on five of the 45 subtests (Word Reading, Paragraph Meaning, Vocabulary, Spelling, and Word Study Skills). A slight numerical superiority involving significant differences among the 45 subtests favored Group A over Group B. In terms of total scores for each of the five subtests in the high-, middle-, and low-ability groups, Group A was significantly better than Group C in all five. Tables are included for both studies.
