Reading Recovery: An Independent Evaluation of the Effects of an Early Instructional Intervention for At-Risk Learners.
Shanahan, Timothy; Barr, Rebecca
Reading Research Quarterly, v30 n4 p958-96 Oct-Dec 1995
Provides independent analysis of the extant evaluations of Reading Recovery. Finds that students make greater than expected gains in reading, effects comparable to those accomplished by other effective educational interventions; and that programs are less effective in maintaining student gains and more costly than has been claimed. Offers recommendations for program monitoring and for encouraging innovations to lower cost. (RS)
