NCEE 2024003 Did the Striving Readers Comprehensive Literacy Grant Program Reach Its Goals? An Implementation Report
Boosting literacy among school-age children remains a national priority. Nearly one third of students in the United States have not developed the foundational reading skills needed to succeed academically, with students living in poverty, students with disabilities, and English learners especially at risk. Starting in 2010, Congress invested more than $1 billion for state literacy improvement efforts through the Striving Readers Comprehensive Literacy (SRCL) program. SRCL was intended to focus funding on disadvantaged schools, encourage schools to use evidence-based practices, and support schools and teachers in providing comprehensive literacy instruction. This report assesses how well SRCL implementation was aligned with these goals, using information collected from states, districts, and schools in all 11 states awarded three-year grants in 2017.

NCES 2023115 Highlights of PISA 2022 U.S. Results
This web report provides key comparative information on the reading, mathematics, and science literacy performance of 15-year-old students in the United States and 80 other participating education systems. The Program for International Student Assessment (PISA) is sponsored by the Organization for Economic Cooperation and Development (OECD) and focuses on students as they are nearing the end of compulsory schooling. PISA is conducted every 3 years, with 2022 being the latest round. In PISA 2022, the major domain was mathematics literacy, although reading and science literacy were also assessed. In addition to national average scores, PISA also provides insight into the percentage of students who reach each of the PISA proficiency levels.

WWC 2023006 Reading Recovery® Intervention Report
This new What Works Clearinghouse intervention report summarizes the evidence on Reading Recovery®, updating an earlier report from 2013, and provides detailed information about program implementation and cost. Reading Recovery® is a supplemental, one-on-one tutoring program designed to help students in grade 1 who score below grade level in reading. The program aims to improve student reading and writing skills by providing one-on-one tutoring and tailoring lessons to each student. Trained Reading Recovery® teachers deliver the tutoring in daily 30-minute sessions over the course of 12 to 20 weeks. Based on two studies that meet WWC standards, there is moderate evidence that Reading Recovery® positively impacted student achievement in literacy immediately after the intervention. There is also promising evidence that Reading Recovery® positively impacted writing productivity and receptive communication immediately after the intervention and writing conventions 3 years after the intervention. Reading Recovery® had uncertain effects on math achievement 3 years after the intervention and on general academic achievement 10 years after the intervention.

NCES 2023054 PIRLS 2021 U.S. Highlights Web Report

The Progress in International Reading Literacy Study (PIRLS) is an international comparative study that measures 4th-grade reading performance every 5 years. PIRLS provides valuable information on the reading literacy of students in the United States and how their reading performance compares to that of students in other parts of the world. The study also surveys students’ attitudes toward reading and their reading habits. In addition, students’ principals answer questions about students’ school experiences. The United States has participated in every administration of PIRLS since its inception in 2001. A total of 65 education systems participated in the 2021 PIRLS assessment.

This web report presents descriptive data from PIRLS 2021 on school operations during COVID-19, student reading performance and attitudes, and school reading resources.

The 2018 NAEP Oral Reading Fluency (ORF) study was conducted by NCES to examine public-school fourth-grade students’ ability to read passages out loud with sufficient speed, accuracy, and expression, as well as foundational skills, to gauge underlying sources of poor fluency. The restricted-use data file contains oral reading performance variables, student contextual information, responses collected from the NAEP reading student survey questionnaire, NAEP reading scores and achievement level and below NAEP Basic subgroup variables, and student sample weights and replicate weights. The data companion, found within the data product folder, provides background on the 2018 NAEP Oral Reading Fluency (ORF) study and a description of oral reading fluency and the study design. It also describes the 2018 NAEP ORF study instrument development and provides the sampling design and response rates, variables included in the data file, information needed to conduct statistical analyses using the 2018 NAEP ORF data, and control statement files to create system files in SAS and Stata.

WWC 2023003 Reading Apprenticeship® Intervention Report
This What Works Clearinghouse (WWC) intervention report summarizes the research on the effectiveness of Reading Apprenticeship®, a professional development program that aims to help teachers improve student literacy skills in core academic subjects, including English, mathematics, science, and social studies. Reading Apprenticeship® trains teachers to model reading comprehension strategies and help students practice these strategies. Based on five studies that meet WWC standards, the WWC found moderate evidence that Reading Apprenticeship® positively impacted student science achievement and overall grade point average, compared with students whose teachers did not receive Reading Apprenticeship® professional development. The WWC found uncertain effects on student achievement in life sciences, social studies, literacy, reading comprehension, vocabulary, and mathematics.
