Finding an Effective Method of Reading Remediation for Young Readers: A Comparison of Two Methods
MetadataShow full item record
The purpose of this study was to determine an effective remedial reading method for early elementary students by comparing the progress of two groups of students. By comparing Growth Scores, calculated using the WIAT III CDN, it was determined that individuals in the SRA Reading Mastery and Guided Reading research groups made gains in the reading subtests of Reading Comprehension, Word Reading, Early Reading, Pseudoword Decoding and Basic Reading. However, it was not possible to determine the efficacy of one remedial method over the other. Instead, the study provides significant information about the hit rate of PM Benchmarks, indicated gains for students in both SRA and Guided Reading groups and clarifies considerations in the choice and implementation of remedial reading methods.
