Visit the Bloom Trail High School Homepage

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:

 Qu 1 Grade, Reading Frequency % E 11 39 D 7 25 C 4 14 B 5 18 A 1 4 Total 28 Average 1.2 St Dev 1.25

 Qu 1 Grade, Reading Frequency % E 2 13 D 4 25 C 3 19 B 4 25 A 3 19 Total 16 Average 2.1 St Dev 1.36

The difference between the means (average First Quarter grades in reading) is statistically significant, in favor of the REF group, at the .05 level.

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

End of Fall 2004.
Number of students: 16

Student has a positive attitude toward school/after school program:
