Despite the benefits of ER, many students resist reading to a degree sufficient to see reading speed or standardized test score improvement. Noncompliance includes refusing to read (sufficiently), or even cheating in reporting amounts read. It seems to be common, even in programs where students should be highly motivated. This forum will begin by describing the types and extent of noncompliance taking place in two programs. It will then address issues associated with mandatory program-wide ER noncompliance or cheating.
