One of the Largest Randomized Control Trials of High Impact Tutoring for Beginning Reading
Chapter One’s High Impact Tutoring Demonstrated to Improve Student Beginning Reading Skills
68% of the students in the treatment group met the end of year kindergarten benchmark, compared to 32% in the control group.
In one of the largest randomized control studies of the impact of 1:1 tutoring on beginning reading skills, researchers at the Annenberg Institute National Students Support Accelerator found that Chapter One’s high impact tutoring program substantially increased students’ phonics skills, preparing them for reading success in subsequent grades. The 1:1 tutoring program has been expanded to almost 12,000 students in Broward County Public Schools, making it one of the largest implementations of high impact tutoring for beginning reading in the United States.
Broward County’s decision to scale Chapter One’s high impact tutoring program comes after years of pilot implementations in various Broward Schools.
