Cross Sectional and Longitudinal Portrayals of the Special Education Mathematics Achievement Gap. Research Brief 10
Schulte, Ann C.; Stevens, Joseph J.
National Center on Assessment and Accountability for Special Education
We contrasted portrayals of the achievement gap on the North Carolina state mathematics assessment for students with disabilities (SWD) using two different ways of identifying this group of students. The first method used students' disability status in third grade as the basis for identifying SWD, and then tracked the achievement gap between SWD and students without disabilities (SWoD) across grades. With our second method, we allowed student disability status to change at each grade, so that only students who were receiving special education services in a particular year were considered members of the SWD subgroup for that year.
