Using Corrective Reading with adults

Herr, C. M.
Abstract:
This study examined the effect of Corrective Reading on the reading achievement of adult students in a community college. The case histories of three adult students are discussed. Students were administered standardized and curriculum-based mastery tests for pretest and posttest measures. Results from the Wide Range Achievement Test (WRAT) indicated that one student went from reading at 1.9 grade level to a 6.0 grade level in a year and a half. Another student demonstrated a gain of 2.5 years on the WRAT over a nine month period. The third student who exhibited signs of learning disabilities demonstrated gains on both the WRAT and the Nelson Reading test, but progress was inconsistent and slower than the other students.
