Identification of Exemplary Schools: A Secondary Analysis of Sixth Grade Data from the California Assessment Program.
Fetler, Mark
This paper reports on regression based methods for identifying exemplary schools. A distinction is made between schools which are maintaining an exceptional level of achievement and those which are improving their achievement in an extraordinary way. More schools were found which consistently exceeded expectations and fewer schools were found which improved extraordinarily, than would have been expected under a random model of school achievement. It was hypothesized that a strong tendency to persist in school practices and a great difficulty in altering them significantly would have this result. Results for mathematics were found to differ from those for reading and written expression. The greater opportunities for extracurricular learning in reading and written expression, compared to mathematics, were hypothesized to account for this. (Author)
