Report of Results Tutorial Reading Project, Indianapolis Public Schools, 1968-1969.
Ellson, D. G.
The results of testing some 1,265 first-grade students who took part in the Tutorial Reading Project for the full 1968-69 school year in Indianapolis are reported. Subjects were selected from the lower third of the first grade, based on Metropolitan Reading Readiness Test scores and teachers' judgments. Separate pretesting and post-testing was done for the 33 schools using the Ginn Basal Reader Series and for those six schools in which the Macmillan Basic Reader Series was used. Two conclusions were reached after evaluating the test results. (1) The tutorial reading program continues to produce large and statistically significant improvement in reading achievement. Roughly equivalent gains were found for children tutored in Ginn material and for children tutored in an experimental program designed for use with the Macmillan series. (2) A followup study of children tutored in 1966-67 and 1967-68 showed that the retention rate was significantly reduced by tutoring. Tables are included. (NH)
