The purpose of the study was to demonstrate growth curve modeling with HLM software in an educational setting. The study investigated the reading scores of 239 Native American students over a 5-year period. The reading scores were compared with 16 demographic and behavioral variables among the students. Findings showed that growth was related to having a phone in the household and that one cohort was significantly different from the other two cohorts. Other findings showed that initial scores were related to sex of the respondent, mother's education, the number of books in the household and time spent riding the bus to school.
