Comparative DISTAR results from five South Afrikaans school

van Rensburg, C.
Abstract:
This study examined the effect of DISTAR on the reading, spelling, and writing achievement of elementary Indian students in South Africa. Student achievement was assessed over three years beginning in the first grade. Student achievement was compared to similar students who received instruction with a basal program or the Breakthrough approach. Results indicate that students in the DISTAR group demonstrated significantly higher mean scores on all tests in the third grade than students in the Breakthrough and basal groups. There were no significant differences in the mean scores of the Breakthrough and basal groups. (Copyright © 2011, National Institute for Direct Instruction (NIFDI). All rights reserved).
