ELL ELL Data

At Read Right, we know our reading program works to improve the reading skills of English Language Learners. We know that Read Right gives ELL students the English reading help that they need to feel confident and to be successful and productive. We have the Data to prove Read Right works!

English Language Learners Data Middle School

Mean Grade Equivalency (GE)

Average hours of Read Right tutoring:41

Mean Normal Curve Equivalency (NCE)

A mean NCE Gain Score of 0.0 means the students held their own in the norming population, neither falling further behind nor closing the achievement gap. Thus low gain scores are statistically meaningful.

Researchers generally regard NCE gain scores between 1.9 and 3.2 to be indicative of an effective program.

In ten years of teaching in both public and private schools, from Phillips Academy at Andover to the New York City public schools and now in Eugene, Oregon, I have never encountered a reading program that has worked for EVERY SINGLE student who walked into my classroom. But the Read Right methodology does just that! It works for all students - from those with dyslexia to Advanced Placement students. Using Dr. Tadlock\'s methods, I have seen high school students who have struggled with reading since entering school become excellent readers. If more schools utilized these methods in the early grades, we would have far fewer high school students who are still struggling readers.
