Description

This year 2000 report examines the effect of a read aloud accommodation on the performance of students on a reading comprehension test. Thirty-two students from general education and special education were administered two equivalent forms of the California Achievement Tests (CAT/5) Comprehension survey. One of the groups took a form with the read aloud accommodation. There were no significant effects by student status found, except for a moderate positive effect size for students with disabilities. Information on student preference of the read aloud accommodation by student status are also presented.
