The Impact of Resource Room Instruction on Academic Achievement of L/LD Students.
Marshall Independent School District, TX.
Analyzed were the academic achievement test scores for approximately 46 language or learning disabled elementary school students receiving instruction in a program based on the resource room concept. The Iowa Test of Basic Skills was administered prior to and following the program. Resource room instruction appeared to have a positive effect upon student academic achievement particularly in the area of language skills with a positive but lower effect observed for arithmetic skills and understandings. As expected, a decrease in academic growth rate followed return to the regular classroom program. (See EC 052 071 for a companion study). (DB)
