Snyder, A.E. (1997). Doctoral Dissertation, Tennessee State University.
For all the grade levels involved in this study, which was performed in Bledsoe County, Tennessee, the Carbo Reading Styles subjects significantly outperformed students in the control group in total reading as measured by the California Tests of Basic Skills CTB4. In addition, compared to the control students, social studies scores were significantly higher: (a) for CRS Chapter 1 students, and (b) when subjects participated in the study for two years. This quasi-experimental research involved 282 students drawn from grades 3, 4, 6, 7 and 8. The experimental treatment provided instructional strategies as recommended by the Reading Style Inventory (Carbo).
