A Comparison of the Effects of Two Remedial Reading Programs on the Reading Achievement of "Retarded" Readers.
Weigert, Barbara Ann
This study investigated whether there was a significant difference in the mean achievement scores of second and third grade remedial reading pupils taught by two different programs. The approaches used were (1) a basal reader program in both regular and remedial reading classes and (2) a basal reader program in the regular classroom supplemented by multimaterials in remedial reading classes. Children in both the Basal-Basal program and the Basal-Multi program received reading instruction in basal reader programs and in special reading classes in Title I reading centers. The main hypothesis tested was that the mean scores of the Basal-Basal group would be higher than the mean scores of the Basal-Multi group. Other hypotheses concerned effects of the different variables--schools, grades, and classes--and interactions between treatments and variables. The main hypothesis was not proven, but the findings showed significant differences in mean scores among the three schools in the study and between the two grade levels. No significant interaction was found between treatment and schools, grades, or classes. (Author/DI)
