Success begins early at Alaskan elementary school

This study examined the effect of Reading Mastery (RM) on the reading achievement of kindergarten students. In order to reach the goals established by No Child Left Behind, RM was implemented in the kindergarten classroom at Big Lake Elementary in the fall of 2003. Results indicated that by the end of the 2006-2007 school year, 73% of kindergarten students were reading at or above the first grade level. Before the implementation of RM, the majority of kindergarten students didn’t reach this level until the middle or end of first grade. Results from the Alaska Standards Based Assessment (SBA) in 2006 indicated that 74% of third grade students who participated in RM in the spring of their kindergarten year scored proficient or advanced in reading. Eighty six percent of the 2007 cohort who received a full year of instruction with RM in kindergarten scored proficient or advanced in reading on the SBA.
