Effectiveness of SRA Corrective Reading

Brown, A. L.
Abstract:
This study examined the effectiveness of Corrective Reading on the reading achievement of 11 fifth and sixth grade students and whether it could significantly increase student reading fluency. Students received 40 lessons of Corrective Reading lessons. Pretest and posttest measures for this experiment was administered using the Basic Reading Inventory. Results indicated statistically significant growth in both reading accuracy and reading rate. The difference among the pretest and posttest median scores for reading rate was significant at the .05 level. The difference among the pretest and posttest median scores for reading accuracy was significant at the .05 level. On average, reading rates increased 20 to 40 words correct per minute. Additionally, reading accuracy improved from one to five words correct over the course of the experiment. (Copyright © 2011, National Institute for Direct Instruction (NIFDI). All rights reserved).
