Impact of the Efficacy Process on Students in Sacramento City USD Pilot Schools.
Hagerty, Rebecka A.
Research related to the implementation and impact of the efficacy process on teachers and students in four Sacramento (California) City Unified School District pilot schools over a 4-year period is described. The study investigated three research evaluation questions: (1) the extent of teachers' implementation of the efficacy process; (2) the degree of participating students' growth in personal efficacy; and (3) the degree to which participating schools showed improved performance on the Comprehensive Tests of Basic Skills (CTBS-U). Students enrolled in third grade in 1992-93 completed the School Attitude Measure (American College Testing) (SAM) and the CTBS-U in reading, language, and math in each of three successive years. Pilot schools were matched with comparison schools. Significant positive changes in achievement occurred over the period of the study (1992/93 to 1994/95) within the four efficacy schools and within the four non-efficacy schools selected for comparison. Math achievement rose more in the efficacy schools than in the comparison schools. Boys, African American students, and white students also experienced greater improvement in math achievement in efficacy schools than in comparison schools. Appendixes include: an assessment checklist; selection criteria for comparison schools; statistical analysis of paired (dependent) samples; charts comparing SAM of pilot schools, math scores and CTBS scores; and a comparison with the Detroit Study.
