This quantitative study determined the effectiveness of the Waterford Early Reading Program at two Title I elementary schools. Students not meeting Grade Level Expectations (GLEs) in reading were enrolled into the computer emphasized reading program. An Analysis of Variance design determined if the students improved reading fluency as measured by the Victory 1000 Oral Reading Fluency test. The findings revealed a correlation between the students who used the Waterford Early Reading Program and reading achievement scores of the students enrolled in the traditional reading program.
