Cleveland County Research Study
Nearly 50 educators across 16 elementary schools participated in this ESSA Research Study to explore the relationship between implementing the Reading Horizons® method and student learning outcomes in K–3 classrooms. Both implementation integrity and student outcomes were measured by the Reading Horizons Implementation Integrity Rubric and the DIBELS 8 assessment, respectively. In all analyses, student performance outcomes increased from pre- to post-test.
The Reading Horizons method, implemented via its K–3 literacy solutions, meets the What Works Clearinghouse ESSA Tier 3 requirements—Promising Evidence.
Our neediest group starting this school year was 3rd grade due to many factors, but hybrid instruction during their foundational years was a major factor. After giving one of our benchmark assessments at the beginning of the year, 37% of the third-grade students were classified as Emergency Level Readers. In January, this percentage dropped to 19.5%.
In addition, our K–5 students have shown an increase from 32.2% proficient in the Fall to 50.7% proficient in the Winter!

Foundational Literacy for Older Students: Catching Up. Keeping Up. Moving Ahead.
Nearly 66% of fourth- and eighth-grade learners perform below proficient achievement levels in reading. For students grades 4 and beyond who struggle with reading, the path ahead can be difficult and discouraging. For striving readers, newcomers, and students with special needs, we can do more and do it better. And that’s the focus of this edWebinar.
