Input and Output Analysis of Suburban Elementary School Districts.
Dunnell, John P.
The relationship of certain input variables to output was determined by a multiple regression analysis, using a sample of 44 suburban elementary school districts. The four input factors were: (1) socioeconomic characteristics, (2) assessed valuation, (3) per-pupil operating expenditure, and (4) educational treatments. The output was mean scores on the Stanford Achievement Test for the fourth and seventh grades. For both grades, the factor most highly related with achievement was socioeconomic characteristics. The average class size factor was significantly related with achievement at grade seven, and the special area teachers factor related with achievement at grade four. (Author/RA)
