The Effect of Inschool Suspension on the Academic Progress of High School Science and English Students.
Silvey, Donald F.
This paper presents findings of a study that explored the effects of assignment to an inschool suspension (ISS) program on high school students' academic performance. The study compared the before- and after-ISS grades in English and science of 32 ninth- and tenth-grade students who had spent a minimum of 5 days in an ISS program during a 6-week grading period. The data showed no significant difference in the academic achievement of students in science and English classes before and after being assigned to an ISS program. Seven tables and two figures are included. Appendices contain a copy of the cover letter, questionnaire, and one scattergraph. (LMI)
