PDF | 654 KB | Fountas and Pinnell

This document is the Executive Summary of the Field Study of Reliability and Validity done on SEL. Field testing was conducted with 284 students enrolled in a socioeconomically, ethnically, and linguistically diverse group of seven schools from five geographic regions across the U.S. Determinations of each school’s socioeconomic status were made using federal guidelines for categorizing low-, middle-, and high SES schools. Students thus represented a cross-section of the major regions of the U.S., diverse socioeconomic levels and language backgrounds, and participated in programs for Spanish literacy instruction.
