The Effectiveness of the TARMAC Reading Program.
Wilder, Dan Glen
Forty third-grade students who were reading below third-grade level and who were identified as educationally deprived participated in a study of the effectiveness of the TARMAC reading program. Twenty students were randomly selected for the experimental group; the other 20 served as a control. The Stanford Achievement Test was administered as a posttest to both groups. Analyses of results indicated that, compared with the control group, the experimental group showed significant differences in vocabulary knowledge, word-reading, reading comprehension, word study skills, and social studies grades.
