The Fall Progress Report offers an overview of student baseline achievement. Student achievement is interpreted through two separate comparisons. In each section we start with a comparison of this years’ baseline and last years’ baseline; a between cohorts comparison. This comparison will show whether the starting point of Reading First schools is higher this year as we anticipated. A second comparison focuses on following student achievement from spring of 2004-2005 to fall of 2005-2006. This within cohort comparison shows the sustainability of last years gains and the effects of the Summer Reading Setback.
