Olean City School District in New York began implementing an Early Reading First (ERF) program in 2009–10. The goals of the program are to improve prekindergarten literacy instruction, support improvement in the literacy environment in students’ homes, and facilitate the transition of students between preschool and kindergarten. AIR is conducting a three-year evaluation of the Olean ERF program to track progress in program implementation and assess the program’s impact on teacher practice and student achievement.
AIR formed the NAEP Validity Studies Panel in 1995 under contract with the National Center for Education Statistics. The panel provides a technical review of NAEP plans and products and identifies technical concerns and promising techniques worthy of further study and research.
