An Analysis of the Bryant YES Center Student Reading and Math Growth, 1971-1972.
Bergeth, Robert L.
The Bryant Youth Educational Support Center (YES) was established to meet the needs of Bryant Junior High students who were socially maladjusted and/or academically underachieving. The primary objectives of the center are to provide basic-skills remedial instruction and to modify inappropriate behavior. During the 1971-1972 school year, 50 students were enrolled at the center, of whom 47 took standardized achievement tests in reading and math in Ooctober 1971 and May 1972. The tests were the Gates-MacGinitie Test in Reading Comprehension and Vocabulary, Stanford Achievement Test in Word Meaning, Paragraph Meaning, Arithmetic Computation, Arithmetic Concepts, and Arithmetic Applications. The same tests were taken on both the pretest and posttest. Results of the tests showed that the students made excellent progress in reading and made good progress in arithmetic. The test results are tabulated. (Author/DB)
