Studies show that students excel with Passport Reading Journeys


Reading Proficiency CLEARLY DEMONSTRATED

“Results in this study support that using the Passport Reading Journeys program assists students in gaining reading proficiency. Passport Reading Journeys assessments showed continuous growth, while remaining consistent with standardized achievement measures. For this group of predominantly Hispanic, low-income students, many with current or previous English language deficiencies, and the majority with well-defined reading inadequacies, increased reading proficiency was clearly demonstrated.”

All students EXPERIENCED GROWTH

“All students made growth on the Passport Reading Journeys and Texas Assessment of Knowledge and Skills (TAKS) Lexiles, Gates, and TAKS Reading scale score. When disaggregated by ethnicity, Hispanic students made particularly notable progress. Three years of TAKS Reading data showed that Hispanic students particularly benefited from Passport Reading Journeys participation.”
