Three Strategies for Studying the Effects of School Processes.
New York State Education Dept., Albany. Bureau of School Programs Evaluation.
This report summarizes three recent studies conducted by the Bureau of School Programs Evaluation of the New York State Education Department that sought to identify relationships between various school factors and student performance in reading and mathematics. The studies utilized three different research strategies. The Regression Study statistically analyzed State Education Department data to determine how various school factors relate to student achievement. The Outlier Study identified high- and low-performing schools through statistical analysis and then analyzed available data for those schools in an attempt to find distinguishing variables. The Observational Study involved observing in 14 of the high- and low-performing schools identified in the Outlier Study in an attempt to discover classroom processes that differentiated between the contrasting groups of schools. Part 1 of the report is a nontechnical summary of the findings and conclusions of all three studies. Parts 2, 3, and 4 provide more detailed descriptions of each of the three studies individually.
