Baum, Christopher F.
This report presents empirical findings from the analysis of the performance of 85 students from Madison Park High School, Boston, Massachusetts, on the Boston Public Schools City Algebra Test (BPSCAT) in June and August 2000, and how their participation in Jobs for Youths Boston PLATO computer-based instruction in the intervening months may have affected their achievement. It was determined that the number of PLATO modules completed has a positive and statistically significant effect on the change in test scores, and that the significance of this effect is robust to a number of factors. All analyses were conducted with Stata version 7.0. (Author/SLD)
