Objective(s): This project will use student standardized reading scores in conjunction with written work from three student project (Knowledge forum«) electronic databases to determine spelling and vocabulary improvement. The purpose is to determine how Knowledge Forum supports literacy advancement. The study will attempt to correlate the literacy score results between those students who participated in activities using Knolwedge Forum (KF - a computer mediated communications software program) and those who had not. The purpose is to identify whether certain aspects of learning with Knowledge Forum might enhance student literacy skills and to develop a rationale which supports the data.
