Effectiveness of the Soar to Success reading intervention in a Midwestern school district
MetadataShow full item record
Data was gathered to determine the effectiveness of Houghton Mifflin's Soar to Success (1998), a commercially published reading intervention, in a southeastern Wisconsin school district. Students participating in the Soar to Success program showed a significant increase between pre and post-MAP and Running Record scores within their group. The non-Soar participants increased scores significantly between pre and post-MAP and Running Record scores as well. Results suggested that the mean differences on the post-MAP and post-Running Record scores between Soar and non-Soar participants were insignificant. Students participating in the program did not perform significantly better than students that did not participate. Implications are discussed as well as further considerations for future research.
