The Reading First Impact Study
The Reading First Impact Study (RFIS) was commissioned to address the following questions:
- What is the impact of Reading First on student reading achievement?
- What is the impact of Reading First on classroom instruction?
- What is the relationship between the degree of implementation of scientifically based reading
instruction and student reading achievement?
The current report presents preliminary answers to the first two questions. The study's final report
will address all three questions.
