Improving ISTEP Scores through Remediation: An Evaluation of the Language Arts Remediation at Chauncey Rose Middle School, Vigo County School Corporation.
Emmert, Bryan E.
A study examined the effects of a remediation program initiated at Chauncey Rose Middle School, Terre Haute, Indiana, during the 1996-97 school year. After the ISTEP test was administered to the sixth-grade class, a pull-out program for remediation was started the following year using grant monies. Subjects were 14 sixth graders, selected because of low scores. The students in the remediation program received extra tutoring in language arts and math essential skills. Students in the remediation program were then given a local test in seventh grade. Results of the local test indicated that the remediation in language arts revealed little change in means.
