This investigation examined the comparative effects of "Reading Success Level B" on the reading comprehension skills of 78 fifth graders across three general education classrooms. Three student subgroups were formed based on pretest Scholastic Reading Inventory (SRI) reading levels including high (n = 14), average (n = 50), and low (n = 14) performance groups. Pre- and posttest reading comprehension measures were collected using the SRI. Results showed students in the low performance group demonstrated statistically significant gains in comprehension when compared to students in the average and high performing groups. In addition, students in the average performance group demonstrated statistically significant gains when compared to the high performance group. Risk status did not affect comprehension growth. Implications for future research are discussed. (Contains 2 tables.)
