Notes

Abstract: Imagination Station, or I-station, is an interactive computer software designed to help improve the basic reading skills of individuals in need of assistance (Bott, 2010; Ciampa, 2012). I-station claims to benefit at-risk students who are not on grade level using a tiered approach modeled after the same three-tiered approach of Response to Intervention (RTI). RTI provides students with increasing amounts of assistance, as needed, in specific academic subjects. Tiers are determined by a student’s performance based on his or her academic grade level. Minimal research has been done on the effects of I-Station on students in Special Education (Masters- Schimek, 2006). An action research study was conducted to determine if using I-station as a reading intervention, employed during direct instruction Special Education sessions, would improve the overall reading skills of these students. Data were collected across a seven-week period in nine different skill categories to determine the effectiveness of the I-station intervention on the reading skills of each targeted student.
