James, Laurie
Teaching English with Technology, v14 n1 p9-22 2014
The intention of this study was to establish if the third grade English Language Learners improved reading fluency when using the computerized Waterford Early Reading Program. This quantitative study determined the effectiveness of the Waterford Early Reading Program at two Title I elementary schools. Students not meeting Grade Level Expectations (GLEs) in reading were enrolled into the computer emphasized reading program. An Analysis of Variance design determined if the students improved reading fluency as measured by the Victory 1000 Oral Reading Fluency test. The findings revealed a correlation between the students who used the Waterford Early Reading Program and reading achievement scores of the students enrolled in the traditional reading program.
