Students Included in Evaluation

324 Total Students

Evaluation Method

  • Students were pretested in Fall 2009 and posttested in Spring 2010

  • Individual assessments using four subtests

    of Woodcock Johnson III Achievement Test (WJ-III)

  • Raw scores were converted to age-referenced standard scores to measure growth


Description of Subtests

Letter-Word Identification: List of individual words for student to read aloud

Passage Comprehension: Short sentences containing a blank for student to read and supply appropriate word

Reading Fluency: Short sentences for student to read quickly and identify as true or false

Word Attack: List of “nonsense” words for student to read aloud, measuring phonics skills


What are Standard Scores?

Age-referenced standard scores account for expected academic growth.

A student who makes expected growth would have the same standard score at the pretest and posttest. An increase in a standard score indicates greater than expected growth; a decrease indicates the opposite.

The AVERAGE standard score for the WJ-III is 100 where 90-110 is the average range.
