The Effects of Parent Training on the Reading Achievement of First Graders
Roberts, Betty Leffler
ProQuest LLC, Ed.D. Dissertation, Trevecca Nazarene College
After presenting the fundamental concepts of learning to read to the parents of first grade students, gains in reading achievement at school were measured using the DIBELS tests, the Scott Foresman COP, running record assessments, and sight-word knowledge tests. No significant differences were found between the control group and the treatment group at the school where the researcher conducted the trainings. There were significant differences in the reading gains between the treatment school and the control school. The researcher believed the primary explanation for the achievement differences in reading between the two schools is the fact that the treatment school was implementing the provisions of the Reading First Grant.
