A Correlational Study of the Relationship of ELL Student Success on STAR and WASL Reading Tests of 3rd Grade ELL Students at McClure Elementary School Yakima Washington

McClure Elementary School, Yakima, Washington (WA)


From the abstract: "The purpose of the present study was to determine whether a correlation existed between ELL student's success on the Renaissance's Star Reading test, and their success on the reading portion of the WASL. To accomplish this purpose, a review of selected literature was conducted, essential baseline data and information was obtained and analyzed, and related conclusions and recommendations were formulated. Data analyzed supported the hypothesis that there was a positive relationship between spring, 2008 Star Reading scores and spring, 2008 WASL reading scores of 3rd grade MES students at .05 and .01. The hypothesis was not supported at .001."
