RESEARCH FOUNDATION SYSTEMWIDE RESULTS ARTICLES
“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.” —Passport Reading Journeys™ Effectiveness with Ninth Grade Students Identified for Reading Improvement Instruction in an Urban High School
“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.” —Evaluation of W. T. White Passport Reading Journeys™ II Students, 2006–2007
“We are seeing years’ worth of Lexile gaps being closed in a semester’s worth of time.”
—Mario Acosta, Principal, PFC Robert P. Hernandez Middle School, Round Rock Independent School District, TX
A system-wide analysis was conducted of students receiving Passport Reading Journeys instruction during a six-year cohort period (2006–2007 through 2011–2012). This analysis included students from 42 states and 337 districts in grades 6-9. The Lexile growth experienced by students enabled them to increase their academic vocabulary and domain knowledge as well as increasing their complexity of text.
