The Effects of the Wisconsin Design for Reading Skills Development in K-3, Niles, Michigan.
Lazich, Gilbert Stevan
The purposes of this study were to determine and describe the effects of using the work-attack element of the Wisconsin Design for Reading Skills Development (WDRSD) as an instructional management system for improving the reading skills achievements of pupils in K-3. The subjects for the study were 1,759 pupils in grades K-3. The dependent variables were the scores on Stanford Achievement Tests and the Wisconsin Tests of Reading Skills Development. It was concluded that the higher results in achievement attained by the Wisconsin Design treatment groups indicate that the WDRSD was an effective instructional treatment for managing skills instruction and attaining higher skills achievement scores. The study demonstrated in particular that subjects treated with the WDRSD word attack element can be expected to attain the pre-established criteria of reading skills achievement. (Author/RB)
