Reading Mastery helps Florida students advance two grade levels in reading

This study examined the effect of Direct Instruction reading programs on the reading achievement of elementary students. In response to k-5 students at Gulf Elementary School reading one or more years below grade level, Reading Master (RM) and Reading Mastery Plus (RMP) were implemented in grades 1-5 during the 1996-1997 school year. RM was implemented in kindergarten classrooms the following year. The Florida Comprehensive Assessment (FCAT) was administered yearly to measure reading achievement. Results from the reading portion of the FCAT indicated that the percentage of 4th grade students scoring at or above level 3 (Range 1-5) increased from 59% in 1999 to 86% in 2005. By 2004, the majority of students were reading above grade level. (Copyright © 2011, National Institute for Direct Instruction (NIFDI). All rights reserved).
