The Effect of an Exemplary Title I Special Individualized Reading Program on the Mean Reading Achievement Scores of Students in Twelve Title I Elementary Schools.
Lang, Gladys Cole
Three reading tests were given as pretests and posttests to 1,752 students in grades one through six in 12 Title I elementary schools. Of these students, 935 were enrolled in a special, individualized reading program utilizing reading centers housed in each school. Self-instructional materials were used as part of a diagnostic-prescriptive instructional approach. The other 817 were enrolled in sixth grade in the same Title I schools but did not participate in the special individualized reading program. Separate analyses of test results for each grade level indicated monthly growth rates significantly higher than in previous years on the Gray Oral Reading Test for pupils in grades one through six, on the Slosson Oral Reading Test in grades three through six, and on the California Reading Test in grades two through six. Nonremedial students in grade six achieved higher mean reading scores on the California Reading Test than did the remedial students in the special program. (Author/AA)
