Park Forest-Chicago Heights School District 163

This study examined the effect of Reading Mastery (RM) on the reading achievement of elementary and middle school students in an urban area. In response to years of poor scores on state and national tests, RM was implemented in six pre-K through eighth grade schools at the beginning of the 1998-1999 school year. Prior to the implementation of RM, students in grades one through eight averaged a 46 Normal Curve Equivalent (NCE), placing them below the national average. After one year of implementation, results indicated overall improvement across all grades. Following two years of implementation, the district’s average score rose to 52 NCE and all students were reading above the national average. First grade students demonstrated the largest gains with a mean NCE of 65.6. (Copyright © 2011, National Institute for Direct Instruction (NIFDI). All rights reserved).
