Improving Reading Fluency and Comprehension Among Elementary Students: Evaluation of a School Remedial Reading Program
This study examined the effectiveness of a remedial reading program on improving reading fluency and comprehension among elementary school students. Twenty-four students were selected to participate in an eight-month program. Results indicated reading fluency and reading comprehension scores improved significantly across the academic year for both male and female students. Examination of gender differences indicated significantly more males were referred to the program than females. Additionally, examination of the between group effect size indicated reading comprehension scores improved more for males than females. Implications for school counselors are discussed.
