The effectiveness of the SRA Corrective Reading curriculum in increasing reading level achievement of eighth grade students at Eagles' Landing Middle School

Kelso, P. F. H.
This study examines the effect of Corrective Reading on the reading achievement of 333 eighth grade students over the course of one school year. Student achievement on the Iowa Test of Basic Skills from the end of fifth grade was used for pretest measures. Students achievement on the Stanford Achievement Test at the end of eighth grade was used for posttest measures. Results indicate that 75% of the students demonstrated gains of more than three grade equivalent years over three years. Only 1.8% of students demonstrated gains of less than three grade equivalent years. Posttest results indicated that 38% of the students were reading at above a high school graduate level. Pretest results indicate that 25.2% of the students were reading below grade level, but only 19.5% were below grade by the end of grade eight.
