The effectiveness of the Corrective Reading program with middle school remedial readers

McMahon, K. S.
This study examines the effect of the Corrective Reading program on the reading achievement of 12 sixth grade remedial students over the course of one school year. The Iowa Test of Basic Skills (ITBS) was administered for pre- and posttest measures. Students’ results are discussed as a whole and as three subgroups based on pre-test scores. Results from the ITBS indicate that on average, students demonstrated statistically significant gains of seven points between pre- and posttest measures. Additionally, students demonstrated positive gains in grade equivalency on average. Nine of the 12 participants demonstrated overall test score improvement and five students had improvement of ten or more percentile points. Students in all three subgroups demonstrated improvements in their scores. (Copyright © 2011, National Institute for Direct Instruction (NIFDI). All rights reserved).
