A Study of the Relationships Among District Size, Expenditure Level and Composite Achievement.
Rumbaugh, Stanley A.; And Others
Simple linear correlations, partial correlations, and moderator variable techniques were utilized to investigate the effects of school district size on school district level expenditure and composite achievement. Expenditure data were assembled on more than 500 Michigan districts and achievement data collected on over 300,000 pupils at the fourth and seventh grade levels. Overall correlations accounted for only two percent of the variance. Partial correlations yielded a slight increase in the coefficients, and using size as a moderator variable scale was promising. The results are discussed in terms of their impact for educational decisionmakers. (Author)
