WWC Quick Review of the Report "The Enhanced Reading Opportunities Study: Findings from the Second Year of Implementation"
What Works Clearinghouse
This study examined whether supplemental literacy classes improve the reading skills of struggling ninth-grade readers. Study authors reported that supplemental literacy classes led to a statistically significant increase in student test scores for reading comprehension, although the intervention did not affect vocabulary test scores. What Works Clearinghouse (WWC) found the study to be a well-implemented randomized controlled trial consistent with WWC evidence standards.
