Summary of Findings
Students made nearly double the progress by using Reading Horizons as compared to the progress they made prior to Reading Horizons use. Students retained reading skills and continued to make progress after completing the Reading Horizons program.
Five elementary school students who were not proficient in spoken English when they began school received Reading Horizons instruction. Scores on the Developmental Reading Assessment (DRA) before, during, and after Reading Horizons instruction were reported.
Reading Horizons direct instruction materials, Reading Horizons interactive software, a teacher trained in the Reading Horizons method, and longitudinal scores from an assessment used consistently across school years.
