Brazelton, Barry Wayne
ProQuest LLC, Ed.D. Dissertation, Liberty University
The purpose of this study was to examine the correlation between students' scores on Academy of READING (AOR) and their performance on the Georgia End of Course Test (GEOCT) for Ninth Grade Literature and Composition. The participants were ninth grade students enrolled in Ninth Grade Literature and Composition during the 2009-2010 school year at a high school in Northeast Georgia. The data was compiled from the students' pretest and posttest scores on AOR and the students' EOCT scores. The researcher compared students' AOR pretest and posttest scores to the students' EOCT scores. In addition, the researcher tested for the AOR pretest and posttest level below which a significantly proportion of students fail the EOCT. A Pearson correlation was used to determine the relationship between the AOR pretest and posttest and the EOCT. The McNemar test was used to assess whether there was a significant difference in the percentages of students passing versus failing the EOCT for the groups above and below a cut point, an AOR score that was determined for the pretest and posttest at which students could be predicted to fail the EOCT. Pearson's r showed a correlation between the pretest and posttest and the EOCT. The McNemar test showed a definite cut point.
