The hypothesis that there is no significant difference between the mean SAT Total Reading Battery percentile scores of LEP students who are mainstreamed and those who are self-contained, was studied. Sixty-eight fourth, fifth, and sixth-grade LEP students were administered the SAT. They were divided into two groups. The self-contained group consisted of 35 students; the mainstreamed group consisted of 33 students. The mean percentile score for the mainstreamed group was 39.57 with a standard deviation of 21.02. For the self-contained group, the mean was 26.0 and the standard deviation was 18.53. The computed t = 2.67, P < .05. The null hypothesis was rejected.
