The Atlanta Project: The Impact of Signals of Relative School Performance.
White, Bayla F.; And Others
This report presents the results of a field test conducted in the Atlanta Public School System during the 1972-73 school year. The test attempted to determine what effects the introduction into a school system of specially prepared information on the relative achievement levels of schools and grades serving students of similar economic levels would have on school system management, decisions, and operations. Two results were expected: the production of different management decisions and better information on how the school system management actually attempts to influence performance. The report also describes the reasons underlying the development of signals of relative performance, the techniques used in that development, and properties of the signals.
