Influence of Student and School Variables on Grade 5 Mathematics and Language Arts Achievement in New Jersey
Gemellaro, Dorian Marrone
AASA Journal of Scholarship & Practice, v10 n3 p15-31 Fall 2013
The strength and direction of relationships between NJ School Report Card Variables (NJ SRC) and 2008-2009 NJ ASK 5 Math and Language Arts Literacy (LAL) student test scores were explored in this non-experimental, quantitative, explanatory study. Variables found to have an influence on standardized test scores in the extant literature were evaluated and reported. The sample of elementary schools (n=314) was taken from the NJ School Report Card to be a proportional random sample of the state's district composition. Analyses were conducted using a two-tiered approach. A simultaneous multiple regression of NJ SRC variables was employed first for both Math and LAL scores. Multiple regression models for School, Student, and Staff variable sets were then analyzed for Math and LAL achievement. (Contains 4 tables.)
