The Impact of a Structured Integrated Learning System on First-grade Students ’ Reading Gains

  title={The Impact of a Structured Integrated Learning System on First-grade Students ’ Reading Gains},
  author={Jerrell C. Cassady and Lawrence L. Smith},
This study examined the effects of the Waterford Early Reading Program on reading achievement gains across the first-grade year. The results of this longitudinal analysis demonstrated meaningfully greater gains on reading achievement for those with access to the Integrated learning system (ILS) (g 1⁄4 .10). Furthermore, the positive effects associated with access to the ILS were greatest for students demonstrating the lowest initial reading skills—those with reading skills at or below the 25th… CONTINUE READING
