A Literature-Based Basal Reader's Effects on Student Achievement: An Evaluation of Literature-Based Basal Textbook Adoption at Terre Town Elementary.
Burk, Anne
An ex post facto study examined third grade students' achievement test scores both before and after the adoption of a literature-based basal reading text. The experimental groups consisted of five third grade classes at Terre Town Elementary School (Indiana) for each of the years 1988 through 1993. Mean scores were plotted and data were visually interpreted to yield the study's results. Results indicated that the use of literature-based basal had little effect on reading, language, and total battery ISTEP (Indiana Statewide Testing for Educational Progress) scores of the students. (Contains five tables of data and seven references.) (CR)
