The Effects of Instructional Level Placement on Vocabulary and Comprehension on Students in Grades Two, Four, and Six.
Rahatz, Mary Jo
This study examines gains in comprehension and vocabulary as measured by the "Gates MacGinitie Reading Tests" among students in grades two, four, and six, placed for reading instruction according to three systematic determinations of measured instructional level and students not placed other than by teacher judgment. No significant differences among groups for either vocabulary or comprehension were found at grades two and four. A significant differences at the .05 level associated with Powell criteria over McCracken criteria in vocabulary at grade six was found. A significant difference in comprehension at the .05 level was associated with McCracken criteria over placement by teacher judgment at grade six. No sex differences were found other than those associated with the total groups at grade six. In this population it would appear that instruction level placement according to any of the criteria examined was not associated with significant gains in either vocabulary or comprehension at grades two and four over students not placed systematically for instruction.
