Evaluation of a Large City Remedial Reading Program.
Maras, Lorene Ruth
This study sought to determine the effectiveness of a remedial reading program conducted in a large city school district over a five-year span of time. There were 200 students in the experimental group and 200 students in the control group. Stanford Achievement Test stanine scores were obtained at the beginning fourth-grade level for all subjects included in the study before the experimental group had been given remedial reading instruction. At the ninth-grade level the Huser Attitude Toward Reading Test was administered to both groups. The findings of the study indicated that remedial reading instruction made a significant difference (.05 level) in the achievement gains of the treated group. There was also a significant difference (.05 level) in the attitude toward reading between those ninth-grade students who had remedial reading instruction and the control group of ninth-grade students who had not had remedial reading instruction.
