Teacher/volunteer survey of freshmen currently enrolled in English/Reading

First quarter grades in reading for the Summer 04 REF students were compared with a randomly selected group of freshmen who were NOT in Summer 04 REF (Honors and IEP students were excluded from the latter sample).

The graph shows the distribution of grades in reading for the two groups: REF and non-REF:

Grades are bimodal: E and C

 Qu 1 Grade, Reading Frequency % Valid E 16 38 D 10 24 C 16 38 B 0 0 A 0 0 Total 42 Average 1.00 St Dev .88

Grades are bimodal: B and C

 Qu 1 Grade, Reading Frequency % Valid E 9 16 D 12 21 C 13 22 B 13 22 A 11 19 Total 58 Average 2.1 St Dev 1.35

The difference between the means (average First Quarter grades in reading) is statistically significant, in favor of the REF group, at the .01 level.

For students who attended Summer 2004 program (reading or mathematics) and are now attending the after school program:
