Miami elementary school boosts FCAT scores with Reading Mastery

This study examined the effect of Reading Mastery (RM) on the reading achievement of elementary students. In response to a low percentage of students reading at grade level, RM was implemented at Parkway Elementary. Prior to the implementation of RM, students’ reading scores were the lowest in the region. Results indicated that the percentage of students in grades 3-5 reading at or above grade level rose from 7% to 57% between 1997 and 2005. Results from the Florida Comprehensive Assessment Test (FCAT) indicated that the percentage of fourth grade students scoring at or above level 3 (Range 1-5 with 3 being proficient) increased from 29% in 1999 to 60% in 2005. Additionally, teachers reported increases in student confidence and positive behavior following the implementation of RM. (Copyright © 2011, National Institute for Direct Instruction (NIFDI).
