An Evaluation of a College Reading Program.
Lowe, A. J.
A college reading improvement program (CRIP) at the University of South Florida was examined to determine if it was of benefit to the participating students. Sixty-five freshmen took part in the 15-week program which used individually planned programs and different methods and materials. Pretesting had shown these 65 students to be significantly inferior to the rest of the freshmen. At the end of the semester course, the students' progress was evaluated, and each CRIP student evaluated the course. Seventy-three percent of the CRIP students felt the program had helped them, and the fact that the CRIP group's grades were not proportionately better or worse than those of the NO-CRIP group suggests that most of these significantly inferior readers did benefit from the program.
