At risk students (Lee County, Alabama)

This study examined the effect of Corrective Reading (CR) on the reading achievement of 4th grade and 7th to 10th grade at-risk students in Lee County, Alabama. The growth in reading achievement of students enrolled in the CR program was compared to the average rate of comparable students in the county. The Stanford Achievement Test (SAT) was administered to all students in the spring of each year. Results from the SAT indicated that 4th grade students enrolled in CR improved their mean score by 10.5 percentage points while comparable students in the district recorded a loss of 3.5 percentile points. Sixty six of the 83 at-risk 4th grade students made significant gains from the previous year and 44 students moved out of the at-risk category. Seventh to tenth grade at-risk students demonstrated an improvement of 12 percentile points on the SAT while comparable students recorded a gain of 1.5 percentile points. Sixty one of the 75 at-risk students demonstrated significant gains from the previous year and 43 students moved out of the at-risk category. Teachers and parents both reported significant increases in the self-esteem of the students in CR program. (Copyright © 2011, National Institute for Direct Instruction (NIFDI). All rights reserved).
