What Is the Effect of Pull Out Remediation on the Grade Point Average of Special Education Students?
The effect of pull out remediation on grade point average (GPA) was studied with high school students receiving special education services. For 30 students receiving pull out remediation and 30 students not receiving the pull out component, data were collected on semester GPA, student gender, year in school, and type of class (alternate or regular program). Pull out remediation was not found to affect GPA significantly. No correlation was found between pull out remediation, gender, junior/senior status, and percent of special classes the student was taking. A literature review on resource class and regular class instruction and student outcomes of mainstreaming is included. (Contains 16 references.) (SW)
