Nebraska Reading First Winter Report 2005-2006, Guy Trainin, Oren Yagil Mar 2006

Nebraska Reading First Winter Report 2005-2006, Guy Trainin, Oren Yagil

Research and Evaluation in Literacy and Technology

The Winter Progress Report offers an overview of student mid-year achievement. Student achievement will be interpreted through two separate comparisons. In each section we start with a comparison of this year’s winter achievement and last year’s mid-year achievement; a between cohorts comparison. This comparison will show whether the mid-year achievement of Reading First schools is higher than last year as we anticipated. A second comparison focuses on following student achievement from fall to winter of 2005-2006 school year. This within cohort comparison shows the sustainability of this year’s baseline.
