A field test was conducted on Waterford Early Reading Program (WERP) to evaluate its effect on reading achievement. The twelve-week field test was conducted in Harbor City, California. A class consisting of twenty first grade students, twelve boys and eight girls, was selected from Harbor City Elementary School using a non-probability convenience sample. The entire sample of the field test was classified as English Language Learners (ELL). The numerical data gathered for the field test came from the Waterford Computer Adaptive Reading Test (WCART). The results indicate that after a twelve-week period, students' reading achievement significantly increased.
