A Study of the Extreme Learning Problem Program in Oregon: 1971-72, 1972-73.
Moore, William; And Others
A 2-year study of the Extreme Learning Problem (ELP) Programs in six school districts in Oregon was conducted to determine if ELP programs were changing students' reading behaviors, to measure the extent of any change, and to determine what factors contributed to changing the reading behavior of children served. The following were among the major findings reported: that pupils in ELP classes tended to make on the average more than a year's growth in reading as measured by the Metropolitan Reading Test (MRT), and pupils in the primary grades tended to make more reading progress as measured by the MRT than pupils at upper grade levels; that ELP pupils not in second or fourth grades who were returned to a regular classroom after 1 year of remediation tended to make less than a year's average growth in reading; and that the most successful ELP teachers used instructional materials in conjunction with regular classroom teachers.
