READ 180[R]. What Works Clearinghouse Intervention Report
What Works Clearinghouse
"READ 180"[R] is a reading program designed for students in grades 3-12 whose reading achievement is below the proficient level. "READ 180"[R] aims to address gaps in individual student's skills through 90-minute sessions, during which students receive several different types of instruction. These sessions can be completed in multiple class periods and begin and end with whole-group, teacher-directed instruction. The sessions also include a period of small group activities where students rotate among direct instruction from the teacher, independent computer work, and modeled and independent reading. The program includes workbooks designed to address reading comprehension skills, paperback books for independent reading, audio books with corresponding CDs for modeled reading, and software designed to track each student's progress. However, no studies of "READ 180"[R] that fall within the scope of the Students Learning Disabilities review protocol meet What Works Clearinghouse (WWC) evidence standards. The lack of studies meeting WWC evidence standards means that, at this time, the WWC is unable to draw any conclusions based on research about the effectiveness or ineffectiveness of the program on students with learning disabilities.
