P-O-S-E(c) Literacy Assessment Project:
Mineola U.F.S.D.
Grade 3 2013-14 (n=180).
For the academic year 2013-2014, the P-O-S-E© program was fully implemented at our licensed beta site Mineola, U.F.S.D., Nassau County, Long Island, New York. The initial target  population consisted of 180 Grade 3 students distributed in nine classes with a sizeable Spanish and Portuguese speaking ESL population. In Fall 3012, all Grade 3 students received a baseline  P-O-S-E© assessment, baseline Fountas and Pinnell (F&P) Benchmark testing and baseline Northwest Evaluation Association Meaures of Academic Progress / Reading (NWEA MAP).  When indicated by test outcome, P-O-S-E© remedial vowel training was implemented through ESL, Reading, Special Education, Speech-Language Pathology and General Education teachers. The school district limited RTI end-of-year P-O-S-E© RTI assessment to only those sudents with P-O-S-E(c) error scores of 12.5% or greater. Both F & P BEnchmarks and NWEA MAP Reading were applied to all available grade three students who also took the NY State English Language Arts examination (ELA).  From an initial Grade 3 population of 180, 96 students provided paired baseline-RTI data on the P-O-S-E(c), F & P Benchmarks, NWEA MAP Reading as well as the 2014 ELA. Multiple correlations demonstrated significant differences and relationships among the findings of all test instruments
