Gifted and Talented Students Demonstrate Improved Reading Achievement after Using Fast ForWord ProductsOct 8, 2010
A study at St. Mary Parish Public School System, LA, in 2009-2010 found that reading achievement increased for gifted and talented students who used Fast ForWord products.
In 2008, Scientific Learning introduced a major update to Fast ForWord Language – our award-winning flagship product. This update enabled students to make the same reading gain in half the time.
A study conducted in Western Australia using a randomized controlled trial design showed that students who used the Fast ForWord products made significantly greater language and literacy gains than students who did not use the Fast ForWord products.
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.
79% of ELL students who used the Fast ForWord products increased their proficiency by one or more levels in less than 4 months of product use.
In a one-month intensive summer school program in 2009, students in Marion County Schools in West Virginia worked on the Reading Assistant program and saw growth of 68 points on the Scholastic Reading Inventory (SRI), more than half the expected yearly gain of 100 to 120 points.
