A validation study of Wiggleworks, the Scholastic Beginning Literacy System

The main research question of the study was: Does WiggleWorks enhance first-graders' growth in literacy over and above the learning produced by their usual language arts program? If WiggleWorks does indeed improve first-graders' literacy learning, then - with a long enough intervention period - students in the WiggleWorks classrooms should show greater growth on the reading and language skills measured by standardized reading tests and writing samples than students in the comparison classrooms.
