Reading Recovery receives high research ratings from the National Center for Response to InterventionReading Recovery has once again received high research ratings from a federally funded information agency, the National Center for Response to Intervention.
The new National Center for Response to Intervention (NCRTI) ratings complement Reading Recovery’s high marks from another independent rating agency, the United States Department of Education What Works Clearinghouse (WWC). In 2007 and 2008, WWC awarded high ratings across four areas of reading including alphabetics, fluency, comprehension, and general reading achievement. To date, Reading Recovery remains the only early reading program to receive “positive” or “potentially positive” ratings in all areas. Although both WWC and NCRTI evaluate research on effectiveness, each has established its own criteria.
