Barren County elementary schools post highest reading scores ever

This study examined the effect of Reading Mastery on the reading achievement of elementary students. In response to third grade students scoring below the national average on the reading portion of the Comprehensive Test of Basic Skills (CTBS) in the late 1990s, Reading Mastery was implemented in five elementary schools in the Barren County School District in 2000. Results indicated that by 2005, students in the third grade scored well above the national average, and students in three of the schools achieved new high scores for their individual schools. Results from the reading portion of the Kentucky Core Contest Test (KCCT) indicated that students in all five schools progressively increased their scores. Additionally, teachers reported never seeing students reading at such an early age and not needing to teach as many remedial lessons.
