The purpose of this action research project was to determine if academic interventions in reading, writing, and mathematics can have an effect on student achievement at the secondary level. Additionally, the goal was to determine if individual, small-group, or whole-class interventions were the most effective. The researcher gleaned data from the 2022-2023 school year based on two individual interventions, nine small-group interventions, and one whole-class intervention. The researcher is an Instructional Coach and had a part in planning for and/or implementing all of these interventions. This research was conducted to help decide if the use of academic intervention is beneficial at the secondary level and which type of interventions students respond to the most. Also, this research will help with the planning of interventions in the upcoming school years. The research found that all of the academic interventions provided had a positive impact on student growth since the minimum growth on the diagnostic was double the expected growth. Additionally, individual academic interventions showed the most growth and were the most effective over small-group and whole-class interventions.
