The Impact of Socioeconomic Status on Second Grade Reading Levels
Knight, Amanda Jill
ProQuest LLC, Ed.S. Dissertation, Marshall University
The purpose of this study is to examine if low SES students respond differently to Tier I and Tier II interventions than Non-Low SES students. The study also seeks to determine the effect Tier I and Tier II interventions have on a group of second grade students. Forty-four Tier I and Tier II Caucasian second grade students from a rural Ohio elementary school were included in this study. No significant differences were found between the reading levels of low-SES and Non-Low-SES students prior to or after implementation of RTI. Significant differences were found between the AIMSweb fall and winter benchmarks as a result of Tier I and Tier II interventions.
