Reading Mastery Plus helps Colorado school achieve AYP for first time

SRA/McGraw-Hill,
Abstract:
This study examined the effect of Reading Mastery Plus (RMP) on the reading achievement of students in grades K-5. In response to poor test scores, district administrators determined it was necessary to place Ivywild Elementary School on a school improvement plan and decided to implement RMP for the 2003-2004 school year. Prior to the implementation of RMP, 43% of third grade students and 35% of fifth grade students scored proficient or advanced in reading on the Colorado Student Assessment Program (CSAP). By 2005, 67% of third grade students and 55% of fifth grade students scored proficient or advanced in reading; school records for both groups. Following one year of instruction with RMP, the school achieved Adequate Yearly Progress and the district determined it was no longer necessary to be on a school improvement plan. By the end of the first year of implementation, all students in grades 1-3 scored at least partially proficient on the CSAP. By the second year of implementation all students advanced from partially proficient to proficient or advanced. (Copyright © 2011, National Institute for Direct Instruction (NIFDI).
