Benfield, Jamie Ledsinger
ProQuest LLC, Ed.D. Dissertation, Wingate University
Anson County School District wished to determine the relationship between Fast ForWord Scientific Learning data and North Carolina End of Grade reading scores at Anson Middle School in Anson County, North Carolina. The specific research questions that guided this study include: 1. How does the literacy intervention, Fast ForWord, affect EOG growth scores at the seventh grade level? 2. What factors, including Fast ForWord, best predict a struggling student's scores on the North Carolina End of Grade test? The subjects for data collection were a total of two hundred and ninety-one seventh grade students at a middle school in Anson County, North Carolina. The students were enrolled in seventh grade in the 2010-2011 academic year and in the eighth grade. When correlating the strength of the relationship between the dependent variable, EOG scores, and the independent variable, the number of Fast ForWord products completed, a single linear regression was performed. Based on the regression statistics, R Squared was equal to 0.004. The ANOVA calculations showed a Significance Factor of 0.29. To analyze the impact of multiple variables on an outcome, a multiple regression analysis was used to calculate what factors, including Fast ForWord, best predict a struggling student's scores on the North Carolina End of Grade test. Overall, the study had a statistically significant outcome with models which should be useful to education as these relate to current research in the field of education.
