Using Multilevel Methods for Local School Improvement: A Beginning Conceptual Synthesis.
A conceptual synthesis is presented of the ways in which multilevel methods of data collection, analysis, interpretation and reporting can be used in instructional improvement activities in local school districts. This discussion of multilevel methods in school settings focuses on the "what" of information needs and usage. Principles and understandings regarding the analysis of multilevel data pertinent to information usage in local school improvement efforts are summarized. Prototypic educational contexts where multilevel methods might be used are described. Brief illustrations of usages of multilevel methods in local educational contexts are provided. Elaboration of the concepts and possible practices for applying multilevel methods in local school improvement efforts are suggested. (Author/PN)
