WWC Summary of Evidence for this Intervention
Voyager Reading Programs
Voyager Passport™ is a supplemental reading intervention system for students in grades K–5. The program integrates five components of reading (phonemic awareness, letter-sound recognition, word reading, sight words, and vocabulary) into a 30–40 minute instructional routine. An assessment and data
management system is integrated into the intervention, allowing teachers to monitor progress and differentiate instruction. The program provides instruction, corrective feedback, and practice time in a small group setting. Each level of Voyager Passport™ consists of 120 lessons that are divided into ten-day units called Adventures.
As of March 2010, no studies of Voyager Reading Programs were found that fell within the
scope of the Students with a Specific Learning Disability review protocol and met WWC evidence standards.
Therefore, the WWC is unable to draw any research based conclusions
about the effectiveness or ineffectiveness of Voyager Reading Programs to improve outcomes in this area.

The indicator represents the highest level of similarity found between your students and each of the high-quality studies of the intervention. Three filled in ovals indicates that at least one study that met standards was conducted on students very similar to yours. Clicking on the indicator for a study will provide information on the similarity for each of the characteristics you selected.
