Reading Recovery students' performance was compared to Title One and Comparison students' performance on the Iowa Test of Basic Skills, Curriculum Based Measurement reading probes, and teacher ranking. The following questions were addressed in order to answer the primary question, "Do Reading Recovery students maintain their reading gains when compared to other groups of students who did not participate in Reading Recovery?" 1. Does the number of Reading Recovery, Title One, and Comparison students who scored above the 40th percentile change from second through fifth grade? 2. Are there statistically significant differences in ITBS Total Reading scores between groups (i.e., Reading Recovery, Title One and Comparison) of students in second through fifth grade? 3. Are there differences in CBM scores between groups (i.e., Reading Recovery, Title One and Comparison)of students in third grade? 4. When comparing teacher rankings of reading skill, how do post Reading Recovery subjects in third grade compare to post Title One and Comparison subjects? It was found that Reading Recovery students scored above Title One students and below Comparison students.
