Earobics: Early literacy instruction

In August 2000, the Chicago Public Schools and Cognitive Concepts, Inc. (CCI) completed a pilot study to evaluate the effectiveness of CCI's Earobics in improving Chicago Public School students' reading and writing performance. The study involved more than 12,000 students in 458 classrooms ranging from preschool through third grade. Comprehensive analysis of pre- and post-test results showed that students in all grades achieved dramatic, statistically significant gains in the full range of phonological awareness skills, spelling and decoding. Some grades advanced more than a full year in age and grade levels in only 10 to 12 weeks of using Earobics.
