An Unobstrusive Experimential Evaluation of a Systems Approach for Teaching Reading.
Novak, Carl D.
This study was part of the evaluation of Project INSTRUCT, a Title III ESEA reading project. Project schools rated high on implementation were paired with similar control schools. Samples of 165 second-grade students were randomly selected from project and control schools. Covariance procedures were used to compare word knowledge, reading, and spelling scores on the Metropolitan Achievement Test (MAT). Previous achievement and ability scores were used as covariates. Project students scored higher on Word Knowledge and Reading. Differences in Spelling, which was not part of the project, were not significant. The results are consistent with previous evaluation findings. (Author/DEP)
