CHANCE. A Post-Secondary Program for the Learning Disabled: An Evaluation.
Edwards, Len; Smith, J. R.
An evaluation was conducted of the Chance Program at Graceland College in Lamoni, Iowa. The Chance Program is a postsecondary intervention program that addresses pronunciation, spelling, and reading comprehension deficits among learning-disabled students. In a quasi-experiment, test scores of college students (N=93) who participated in the Chance Program were compared to test scores of college students (N=6) who qualified but elected not to participate in the Chance Program. Results indicated that the Chance Program significantly improved student pronunciation, spelling, and reading comprehension skills. The gains in test scores were also correlated to grade point average (GPA) gains. The average gain in GPA was .49 and moderate correlations were found between some test score gains. A list of 16 suggested readings is attached. (DB)
