An Analysis of the Reading Achievement Growth and Opinions of Students in Grades 10-12 Enrolled in Remedial Classes Designed to Meet State of California Minimum Reading Standards.
Uroff, Shayle
The purpose of this study was to investigate the efficacy of a state-mandated remedial reading program in grades ten through twelve by determining if significant differences existed in student reading achievement growth, attitude, and opinions with regard to school, sex, and grade. The population consisted of 137 students completing a one-semester course in remedial reading. Significant reading achievement gains were made by the seniors, with males making greater overall gains than females. Significant attitudinal and opinion differences toward school, reading, reading class, value of class, and the materials and techniques used were found with regard to school, grade, and sex. High school seniors were found to have more favorable attitudes toward reading than students in grades ten and eleven. It was recommended that remedial reading training be made available to secondary students as soon as the need is detected and that future studies investigate the effects of instructional mode on reading achievement.
