A Validation of Three Models for Producing School Effectiveness Indices.
Convey, John J.
The capability was studied of each of three models for producing indices that will reproduce school effectiveness rankings established a priori through simulation. The models used were a within-group regression technique, a regression model using individual scores, and a regression model using means. Data for 54 hypothetical schools on input, SES, school, and output variables were randomly generated from a multivariate normal distribution using parameters from previous studies. The results indicated that each type of model was capable of producing indices which were rather accurate reflections of the effectiveness ranks of schools. (Author)
