    Take a look at "System 44 and READ 180--Research-Based Literacy Instruction for Special Education" in the Community Resources at http://educatorcommunity.scholastic.com/resource/system-44-and-read-180-research-based-literacy-instruction-for-special-education. Also, the "Compendium of Research" at http://www.hmhco.com/products/read-180/research-and-results/research-validation.htm might be helpful. Most of the subgroups are disaggregated that finely, but you may find them helpful. Dee Ask Dee at the READ 180 Community
