Abstract

The problem of this study was to determine if college-bound juniors and seniors enrolled in a one-semester developmental reading course focusing mainly on vocabulary and speed do make gains in their specific and general reading skills. The research was made through the comparison of pre and post-test scores in vocabulary, flexibility of speed, speed, critical reading, and comprehension. Specific objectives of this study were to answer these questions. 1. Is there a significant difference between pre-and post-test scores on the specific vocabulary studied in class? 2. Is there a significant difference between pre-and post-test scores on general vocabulary? 3. Is there a significant difference between pre-and post-test scores on critical reading? 4. Is there a significant difference between pre-and post-test scores on comprehension? 5. Is there a significant difference between pre-and post-test scores on speed? 6. Is there a significant difference between pre-and post-test scores on flexibility of speed?
