The Impact of Michigan 1970-71 Grade Three Title I Reading Programs.
Marco, Gary L.
An overall analysis is made of the impact of Grade 3 Title I reading programs in the State of Michigan. An attempt is made to estimate the effectiveness of particular reading programs for low-scoring, middle-scoring, and high-scoring pupils for the purpose of identifying exemplary programs. In addition, a rank ordering of the various programs relative to one another and to "regular" Grade 3 programs in the state is made. The Primary II Reading Test of the Metropolitan Achievement Tests was used for pretesting and posttesting. Site visits were also made to all of the schools in the study to collect information. Two different statistical methods were used to analyze the data: (1) analysis of change scores; and (2) one based on within-school regression lines. The major conclusion reached as a result of the study findings is that Title I reading programs in Grade 3 in Michigan vary considerably as to effectiveness from one program to another. The three appendixes to the report provide a listing of participants, data collection form, and supporting tables in Appendix A; Appendix B presents 12 tables and 9 figures; and Appendix C contains program data on 16 schools relating to 6 program areas.
