Lebanon School District, Lebanon Pennsylvania

This study examined the effect of Reading Mastery (RM) on the reading achievement of elementary students in an urban area. In response to declining reading scores in the mid-1990s, the Lebanon School District implemented RM for grades one through five in one elementary school. Following one year of implementation, results indicated that students advanced at least one grade level in their reading ability. After four years, grade five scores on the Pennsylvania System of School Assessment (PSSA) increased by 50 points. From 1997 to 2001, the percentage of fifth grade students scoring proficient or advanced on the PPSA rose from 40 to 50 percent. During the same time frame fifth grade students increased their reading fluency from 117 words per minute to 166 words per minute. Second grade students increased their reading fluency from 54 words per minute to 118 words per minute. (Copyright © 2011, National Institute for Direct Instruction (NIFDI). All rights reserved).
