High School Competency Graduation Requirements: Do They Result in Better Graduates? Publication Number 78.76.
Ogden, Jane
Mathematics achievement test scores of high school students in the Austin Independent School District who graduated before implementation of minimum competency testing were compared to the scores of students who were more recently enrolled in mathematics tutorial classes in order to meet minimum competency requirements. The percentages of graduating seniors who met minimum competency standards in reading was greater when there were high school graduation requirements. It was tentatively concluded that implementation of minimum competency standards and establishment of remedial courses are likely to raise the scores of low achievers on district-wide achievement test results.
