Williams, Vernita
ProQuest LLC, Ed.D. Dissertation, East Carolina University
Third grade at-risk students in Wilson County Schools, Wilson, NC continuously perform below the state average on the North Carolina Third Grade Reading End-of-Grade test. Leaders in the Wilson County Schools school district implemented a literacy pull-out intervention program for third grade at-risk students as a strategy to improve reading proficiency for third grade at-risk students. This evaluation determined the impact of the literacy pull-out intervention program on academic performance of third grade at-risk students. Data results from both qualitative and quantitative sources were analyzed to determine the impact of the program. This study revealed that the literacy pull-out intervention program did not impact student proficiency on the North Carolina Third Grade Reading End-of-Grade test, but the program did impact student growth in reading for the at-risk students.
