The follow up of Follow Through students in high schools

White, W.; Gersten, R.
Abstract:
This study examined the long-term effects of the Direct Instruction (DI) Follow Through program on students in Flint Michigan. The academic achievement of students from two DI schools was tracked from the third grade to high school. Their achievement was compared to similar students in another Flint elementary school that did not implement DI. Results indicate a significant difference in the attendance, retention rate, college plans, and grade point average, favoring the DI students. Ninth grade achievement scores and placement in special education suggest a possible difference. Graduation and drop-out rates, inclusion on honor roll, and college board scores indicate no differences. However, former DI students had a greater tendency to make college plans than comparison schools. (Copyright © 2011, National Institute for Direct Instruction (NIFDI). All rights reserved).
