Retention and Nonretention of At-Risk Readers in First Grade and Their Subsequent Reading Achievement.
Juel, Connie; Leavell, Judy A.
Journal of Learning Disabilities, v21 n9 p571-80 Nov 1988
Comparison of reading skills in nine first graders retained in first grade and nine similar children promoted to second grade suggested that retention may benefit such children if they start the repeated year with increased phonemic awareness and increase their spelling-sound knowledge in second grade. Listening comprehension was not aided by retention. (Author/DB)
