Spalding Education International collaborated with Arizona State University during a four-year longitudinal study of the effectiveness of The Writing Road to Reading program. ASU Researchers summarized the study as follows:
"According to the year four results, students who used The Writing Road to Reading demonstrate higher and statistically significant learning as measured by DIBELS. Since both the control groups and the experimental groups used detailed teacher guides evaluated by Arizona Department of Education for research-based reading components, theoretically, they should have produced similar results. This was not the case. The four-year findings strongly suggest that use of The Writing Road to Reading program is an effective method for enhancing performance on critical early literacy skills."
