Abstract

This study looked at the difference in reading level achievement of kindergarten students who participated in the Accelerated Reader Program and those who did not participate in the Accelerated Reader Program. The kindergarten class that participated in the Accelerated Reader Program was matched by group means to one other kindergarten class that did not use the Accelerated Reader Program in the same school. The two classes were compared at the end of the school year using the S.T.A.R. test. Although the Accelerated Reader class did not perform higher on the S.T.A.R. test than the class that did not participate in the Accelerated Reader Program, a significant difference at the .05 level was not found.
