The Reading Outcomes of Adults in Literacy Programs


Reading instructional software is a potential weapon in the global war against adult illiteracy.  Will the current and future monetary investments by states and educational institutions receive recognition for significant gains in participant’s reading scores?  The purpose of the quantitative, ex post facto study was to compare the reading scores of adults in literacy programs using Instruction Targeted for Test of Adult Basic Education (TABE) Success (ITTS) instructional software to the reading scores of adults in literacy programs not using educational technology by analyzing pre-test and post-test TABE scores.
