Dr. Donald Aguillard: Improving Louisiana Educational Assessment Program (LEAP) Scores in St. Mary Parish SchoolsDec 9, 2010
After just weeks of working on Fast ForWord products, high school student Kenny Hilliard is finally reading on grade level and headed for Louisiana State University on a football scholarship. Why continue waiting for Superman when you can get results like these now?
After 29 days of using the Fast ForWord products, students 6 to 8 years of age saw both improved auditory attention and improved early reading skills.
Students were selected from grades one through eight to participate in this longitudinal study on the effects of using the Fast ForWord Reading software in Clarke County School District in Georgia. It was determined that 40% of the non-proficient students reached CRCT reading proficiency in one year with the use of the Fast ForWord Reading software.
In four years, the percent of fourth graders in the district performing at or above Basic on the initial LEAP ELA test increased impressively from 53% to 78%, starting out far below the state average and then exceeding it.
Teachers today are fortunate to have access to a wealth of scientifically based research into what works when teaching children to read. Learn what works for different age groups.
Can Fast ForWord® and Reading Assistant™ products improve school test scores? Do they help students learn and succeed? Are they evidence-based?
