A Study of the Effects of Different Levels of Initial Diagnosis on Gains in Reading Achievement for Adults in a Community College.
Livingston, Catherine Lucille
This study sought to determine whether varying the levels of initial diagnosis was related to gains in reading achievement after a maximum period of ten weeks of instruction. The subjects were students enrolled part- or full-time at Parkland College, a public community college located in Champaign, Illinois. Students were assigned to one of three groups on the basis of scores obtained on the Iowa Silent Reading Test, Form E, with those in group one having below average reading skills and those in group three having above average reading skills. In group one, significant differences were found for the ratios of time spent in diagnosis. In group two--those with average reading skills--significant differences were found for the levels of diagnosis. No significant differences were found between time spent in diagnosis and gains in reading achievement for students in group three. (Author/RB)
