High School Size and Cost Factors. Final Report.
Kiesling, Herbert J.
The relationship of public high school performance to expenditure per pupil and high school size was examined. Data from 775 public high schools in the continental United States generated by the American Institute for Research (Project Talent) was used to evaluate twelve potential measures of high school performance. Nine of these measures were either achievement tests or factor scores based on all tests. What were judged to be the most important of these output measures were then related to high school expenditure and size in a simple model of the educational process in which performance of pupils from similar socio-economic backgrounds was explained by a general intelligence factor score, school expenditure, school size, and an index of pupil socio-economic background.
