Evaluating the impact of Headsprout on the reading achievement of English language learners
MetadataShow full item record
As the number of English Language Learners (ELLs) in American schools increases so does the need for effective reading interventions for this at-risk population. However, the research in this area is very limited. As such, this study examined the impact of the Headsprout Early Reading program on the reading achievement of kindergarten, first, and second grade ELLs. The Headsprout Early Reading program is a research based program that is computer delivered and appropriate for students who read below a second grade level. Twenty-nine ELLs were assigned to either the control group or the Headsprout Early Reading program treatment group. Results indicated no difference between the treatment group and the control group on three measures of reading achievement.
