Is RENP a Cost Effective Supplement to the Regular DCPS Program? RMC Report UR-330.
Errecart, Michael T.
This paper focuses on whether the Response to Educational Needs Project (RENP) has been demonstrated to be a cost effective way of increasing the reading and mathematical achievement scores of students in the fourth, fifth, and eighth grades of the District of Columbia Public Schools. The first section describes the RENP program and its history. The second sketches some of the important considerations relevant to properly understanding cost effectiveness analysis and the cost and effectiveness data on which the analysis is based. The third presents the data, analyzing fall to fall comparisons for reading and mathematics scores, fall to spring comparisons for reading and mathematics, and fall to spring comparisons using adjusted gain scores.
