Buck, Julie; Torgesen, Joseph – Florida Center for Reading Research, 2018
There is an extensive body of research establishing measures of oral reading fluency as valid and reliable predictors of important reading outcomes and performance on high stakes tests (Good, Simmons, & Kame'enui, 2001). The present study was conducted to determine whether these findings also apply to the Florida Comprehensive Assessment Test…

Torgesen, Joseph K.; Wagner, Richard K.; Rashotte, Carol A.; Herron, Jeannine – Florida Center for Reading Research, 2018
The purpose of this study was to examine the relative effectiveness of two computer supported approaches to teaching beginning reading skills that differed in important aspects of their instructional approach and emphasis. One of the programs was "Auditory Discrimination in Depth," which provides very explicit instruction and practice in…

Buck, Julie; Torgesen, Joseph; Schatschneider, Christopher – Florida Center for Reading Research, 2018
This study was conducted to determine how useful students' prior performance on the Florida Comprehensive Assessment Test (FCAT) is in helping to identify students who are likely to struggle on the subsequent year's FCAT, if intervention is not provided. Specifically, the authors wanted to determine how students are likely to perform on the…

Lee, Laurie; Hughes, John; Smith, Kevin; Foorman, Barbara – Florida Center for Reading Research, 2016
This guide is designed to help State Education Agencies (SEAs) conduct self-studies to identify interventions that may be implemented in schools needing improvement or that require comprehensive or targeted support. The interventions selected should be those that are most relevant and appropriate based on the needs of schools, with the strongest…

Foorman, Barbara R.; Petscher, Yaacov; Schatschneider, Chris – Florida Center for Reading Research, 2015
The FAIR-FS consists of computer-adaptive reading comprehension and oral language screening tasks that provide measures to track growth over time, as well as a Probability of Literacy Success (PLS) linked to grade-level performance (i.e., the 40th percentile) on the reading comprehension subtest of the Stanford Achievement Test (SAT-10) in the…

Torgesen, Joseph – Florida Center for Reading Research, 2007
We will never teach all our students to read if we do not teach our most at-risk students to read. Another way to say this is: "Getting to 100% requires going through the bottom 20%." Teaching all students to read requires a school level system for early identification of at-risk students and a school level system for providing those students with…

Torgesen, Joseph K. – Florida Center for Reading Research, 2007
The use of the term "response to intervention" focuses on its potential utility for diagnosis of learning disabilities. In this context, "response to intervention" can be understood as a diagnostic approach for determining which students are entitled to special educational services. It is important to notice that the validity of the RTI diagnostic…

Crawford, Elizabeth; Torgesen, Joseph – Florida Center for Reading Research, 2007
One of the most critical needs in Florida's "Reading First" schools is to improve the effectiveness of interventions for struggling readers. For example, during the 2005-2006 school year, only 17% of first grade students who began the year at some level of risk for reading difficulties finished the year with grade level skills on the…

Torgesen, Joseph K.; Foorman, Barbara R.; Wagner, Richard K. – Florida Center for Reading Research, 2007
Dyslexia is a term that has been applied since the early part of the 20th Century to many students with reading difficulties. The term comes from medicine, but its broadest application is within education. Many educators, however, remain confused about the term in spite of the fact that major advances in the understanding of dyslexia have been…

Howard, Patricia – Florida Center for Reading Research, 2005
Anyone who has worked as a teacher or principal in an elementary school understands the value of reliable and valid assessments of early reading progress. In order to implement an effective reading program, schools should have a coordinated plan for using screening, progress monitoring, diagnostics and outcome measures to guide instruction and to…
