Is Reading Recovery Worth the Cost?
Marina, Brenda; Gilman, David A.
A study was conducted to analyze the impact of the Reading Recovery Program on first grade students in Vigo County, Indiana. The program was implemented in Vigo County just last school year (2000-01). For the study, a first-round sample of 51 students who were successfully discontinued from Reading Recovery was measured to obtain information on the progress they made. Students were again tested at year-end to determine continued success. Data were collected by obtaining test scores in reading and writing using a control group and an experimental group. The conclusion was that most of the students did benefit from the Reading Recovery Program and that the program looks to be very cost effective in terms of long-term monetary expenditures.
