Decoding & Comprehension
Comprehension Difficulties, Reading Difficulties
On average, students who received Seeing Stars combined with Visualizing and Verbalizing instruction achieved significant improvements in decoding and comprehension. Our combined focus student population represents about 31% of our total Learning Center population. They made large (statistically significant) standard score changes on seven of nine measures. Although the large average standard score gain on the Word Recognition measure is notable, it is equally if not more important to note the large average standard score gains in Paragraph Reading Accuracy and Written Language Comprehension.
