North Carolina Students Receiving Seeing Stars Instruction Make Significant Improvements in Reading

Elementary School Results, North Carolina, Reading, Seeing Stars

Iota Elementary School in Franklin, North Carolina, serves a large percentage of students who are at-risk of reading failure. During the 2013-14 school year, Iota implemented Lindamood-Bell® instruction to address the specific needs of this student population. Nineteen students received an average of 124 hours of Seeing Stars instruction to develop symbol imagery for reading. Instruction was delivered by Iota teachers who received professional development in the Lindamood-Bell programs. Student gains were measured with a battery of reading assessments.

 

Results
On average, Seeing Stars students achieved significant improvements in reading. They made large standard score changes on all measures. Additionally, the 28-point percentile increase in word recognition put these students well within the normal range (25th-75th percentile). Their pre- to posttest results were statistically significant on all measures. The results of this study illustrate that Lindamood-Bell instruction in the Seeing Stars program leads to improved reading, which is essential to achieving success with school curricula.
