Factors Demonstrating Effectiveness of Reading 100.
Goldman, Florence
The performance of 35 students with low and medium reading scores who took a reading and study skills course at a community college was compared with that of 27 students who had similar reading skills (as judged on a standardized test) but who did not take the reading course. Comparisons were made in the areas of the number of semester hours each group completed, the number of students who returned the semester following the reading course, and the grade point averages of each group. A significant difference was shown between low reading skill students who took the course and low reading skills students who did not take the course in terms of number of semester hours completed during the semester the course was offered. On no other comparison did any reliable difference occur between students who took the course and students who did not take the course. (TJ)
