A case study using the corrective reading program in a junior/senior high remedial class

Massar, E. M.
Abstract:
This one-year study examined the effect of Corrective Reading on the mastery of reading skills of at-risk students in grades 7-12. An informal reading inventory was administered for pre- and posttest measures. The 4-Sight Predictive Benchmark Assessment was administered four times during the school year to identify needs and track student progress. Results indicate that students reading achievement and reading grade levels improved over the course of the study. On average, students’ reading grade level increased from 6.6 to 8.08. Additionally, the distribution of students’ Pennsylvania System of School Assessment Performance Levels statistically improved from the pre-test to the post-test.
