Behavioral Technology Today, 6, 1-19 (2011). THE LIKELIHOOD OF INSTRUCTIONALLY BENEFICIAL, TRIVIAL, OR NEGATIVE RESULTS FOR KINDERGARTEN AND FIRST GRADE LEARNERS WHO COMPLETE AT LEAST HALF OF HEADSPROUT(R) EARLY READING
Both kindergarten and first grade students using an Internet delivered reading program showed instructionally beneficial results on standardized test measures when compared to control groups in an unbiased control study. When kindergarten and first grade students completed at least 41 lessons (M = 67) of the 80-lesson Headsprout(R) Early Reading program, they showed a greater improvement on reading measures than did those students not receiving the Headsprout program. Hopkins' (2007) statistical evaluation method was used to provide a basis for understanding the likelihood of obtaining an instructionally beneficial, trivial, or negative result. The probability that the partial to full completion of Headsprout Early Reading would produce an instructionally beneficial effect ranged from 2 to 1 (likely to be beneficial) as measured by ITBS subtest scores, to 1735 to 1 (almost certainly beneficial) as measured by Woodcock-Johnson III subtest scores.
