The Diagnostic-Prescriptive-Individualized Primary Reading Program; An Introduction.
Louisville Public Schools, KY.
The two-year goal of the Diagnostic-Prescriptive-Individualized Primary Reading Program (DPI) is to cut in half the deficit between the national norms and actual achievement scores of the pupils as measured by the California Achievement Tests at the first and second grade levels and the California Test of Basic Skills at the third grade level. As the DPI primary reading program enters its second year, the overall objective is being realized through the DPI management system, which includes: three hours of reading/language arts instruction daily; the reinforcement of classroom instruction by individualized tutoring; dividing the year into ten three-week cycles, during which time an individualized prescription is written and implemented for each pupil; individualizing instruction in terms of each pupil's achievement level, skills, needs, preferred learning style, and interests; and intensive preservice and inservice workshops for teachers.
