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:
