Abstract

This study investigated the best approach to increase a student’s reading rate while using the computerized reading program Reading Plus. The participants were community college students enrolled in developmental reading classes. The experimental students completed guided reading lessons using a guided reading format versus the control students, who completed guided reading lessons using both independent and guided reading formats. Pre- and post-testing assessed reading levels, oral reading rates, and silent reading rates of both groups. While pre- vs. post-test scores showed increases in reading rates on three different assessment measures for both groups, these increases were not statistically significant.
