The Harvard Report on Reading, "The First R," A Decade Later: A Measure of Implementation of Recommendations with Significant Regional and School Size Differences Examined.
Karp, Laenu A. G.
Based on recommendations of the Harvard Report on Reading, a 33-item instrument was sent to a small sample of school districts originally surveyed to see the amount of implementation a decade later. Because only a small sample was surveyed, the states are grouped into seven regions. Measures of implementation based on the percentage of "yes" responses were tabulated. Questions were then grouped into topics for further evaluation. Standard significance testing procedures were used when districts were grouped according to sizes. For each question and topic, respectively, significant differences between regions, between districts having under and over 20,000 pupils, as well as a composite of all districts, were noted. Correlation between responses to questions for a given size and region were analyzed. Conclusions were drawn regarding extent of implementations and dependence upon teachers' salaries, per capita income, and expenditures for education. (Author)
