Reading Improvement Program, Title I Evaluation, 1974-1975.
This report contains an evaluation of the reading improvement program in the primary grades in Cleveland, Ohio, which attempts to provide specialized reading instruction and support for disadvantaged pupils at a time deemed critical in their school experience. The project utilizes the services of a reading consultant, master teachers, and educational assistants who furnish individual and small group instruction on a daily basis. Project services during the 1974-75 school year were provided to a total of 1,756 pupils in grades one, two, and three in 32 public and five non-public schools. Per pupil cost of the project (less custodial costs) was approximately $452.87 beyond the general fund per pupil cost of $221.29 for reading instruction. Some of the evaluation findings of the 1974-75 school year show that approximately 63.1 percent of second grade pupils and 68.3 percent of third grade pupils gained one month in reading for one month of instruction and that posttest status for a sample of first grade pupils revealed standings from four months to twenty-two months beyond the nine month standing for first grade pupils with average reading abilities.
