Growth in Reading Performance during the First Four Years in School. Research Report. ETS RR-07-39
Rock, Donald A.
ETS Research Report Series, Oct 2007
This study addressed concerns about the potential for differential gains in reading during the first 2 years of formal schooling (K-1) versus the next 2 years of schooling (1st-3rd grade). A multilevel piecewise regression with a node at spring 1st grade was used in order to define separate regressions for the two time periods. Empirical Bayes estimates of individual growth curves were developed, and smoothed estimates were plotted for selected demographic groups.
