Florida school moves from D grade to A with Reading Mastery

This study examined the effect of Reading Mastery (RM) on the reading achievement of kindergarten and elementary students. In response to receiving a “D” grade from the state of Florida, the Alta Vista Elementary School implemented RM for all students in grades K-5 in 2003. Prior to the implementation of RM (2002), 51% of students in grades 3-5 were proficient readers. Results indicated that by 2006, 69% of these students were proficient readers. Results from the Florida Comprehensive Achievement Test (FCAT) in 2005 and 2006 indicated that 77% of the bottom quartile of students made gains in reading. Scores for 2006 were the highest among all elementary schools in the district. Since 2004, the school has received an “A” grade from the state of Florida. In 2006, the school satisfied all the guidelines for No Child Left Behind for the first time. (Copyright © 2011, National Institute for Direct Instruction (NIFDI). All rights reserved).
