The effects of combining repeated reading with Reading Mastery on first graders’ oral reading fluency

Nanda, A. O.; Fredrick, L.
Abstract:
This study examined the effects of adding three repeated readings following Reading Mastery lessons on the reading fluency of six first grade students. This study aims to replicate the findings of Frankhauser, Tso, and Martella (2001) as well as determine if fluency gains generalize to other Reading Mastery passages. Results indicate that the addition of repeated readings did not substantially increase reading fluency beyond what is expected within the RM program. Additionally, fluency gains did not generalize to other RM passages, nor reduce the number of readings required to meet RM checkout criteria. These results suggest that RM provides sufficient support for students to gain fluency in reading without supplementing the program with repeated readings.
