Reading Recovery Qualitative Surveys Summary Report.
Rhodes-Kline, Anne K.
Administrators, trained Reading Recovery teachers, teachers in training, classroom teachers, and parents of Reading Recovery students from across the state of Maine were asked to complete surveys about their impressions of the Reading Recovery program during the 1994-95 school year. Respondents' comments were summarized by Reading Recovery team leaders from 10 sites in Maine. Results showed considerable enthusiasm for Reading Recovery. Concerns focused mainly on the future of funding and the equitable selection of children for the program. The individual questionnaires contained mainly open-ended, qualitative questions. Some items also asked respondents to rate the Reading Recovery program (or an aspect of the program) on a Likert-type scale. Of the 1,172 questionnaires sent to parents, 843 were returned, a response rate of 72%. Of the 235 administrator questionnaires, 189 were returned, for an 80% response rate. Of the 122 trained Reading Recovery teachers, 101 questionnaires were returned completed, for an 83% return rate.

Of the 503 questionnaires distributed to classroom teachers, 399 were returned, for a response rate of 79%. Contains numerous comments from the completed questionnaires. (NKA)
