READ 180 is an intensive reading program intended to accelerate the performance of struggling readers. The brief presents an evaluation of the literacy achievement of middle school students enrolled and not enrolled in the program during school year 2007-2008, as measured by the Maryland School Assessment (MSA) in reading and the Measures of Academic Progress-Reading (MAP-R). Findings indicate that, on average, middle school students enrolled in READ 180 demonstrated significant one-year academic growth on the MAP-R, and, overall, they had slightly higher end-of-year MAP-R and MSA reading scores than their peers who were not enrolled in the program.
