Language Development Component, CLEAR-Reading Recovery Program 1985-86. Final Evaluation Report.
The Compensatory Language Experiences and Reading-Reading Recovery Program (CLEAR-RR) provided early intervention to 224 underachieving first grade pupils in Columbus, Ohio schools. The program's two major goals were to develop and provide CLEAR-RR for the first grade pupils and to adapt and apply the inservice program for teachers. Specially trained teachers provided one-on-one half-hour daily lessons during the 1985-1986 school year. Pupils included in the final pretest-posttest analysis had received 60 or more instructional lessons. Activities included reading and rereading books while the teacher maintained a record of strategies and errors, writing and reading stories, identifying letters, and analyzing sounds in words. Students discontinued the program when they had successfully achieved predetermined levels on the Reading Recovery Diagnostic Survey and the vocabulary and comprehension subtests of the Comprehensive Tests of Basic Skills, Levels B and C. Analyses of the standardized test data included comparison of Total Reading scores, pretest to posttest, using percentiles and Normal Curve Equivalents. Based on positive results recommendations were to continue CLEAR-RR at its current level, to share techniques with teachers in other programs, and to investigate the possibility of expanding services to more pupils.
