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.

When my son was 9 years old, his teachers wanted to hold him back and assign him to special education. Do I think Read Right made a difference?  100% yes!  Ethan was on the way to a lifelong disability that was totally man-made and unnecessary. He didn't need special ed -- he needed Read Right! Last year, as an 11th grader, he took dual high school/college courses and was invited to join Phi Beta Kappa--a collegiate organization for academic excellence! I believe with all of my heart that Ethan would not be where he is right now without Read Right.
