Examining Relationships among Assessment Scores and Math Coursework in an Urban School District
Parke, Carol S.
Journal of Research in Education, v22 n1 p26-62 Spr 2012
This study investigates relationships between assessment scores and other indicators of math performance. The impetus for the research came from a district's need to better understand high school math achievement. Longitudinal data for a cohort of students were obtained, including math scores from their state assessment, TerraNova, and New Standards Reference Examination; cumulative math GPA; number of math courses taken; and type of math courses taken. The paper illustrates how researchers can help districts utilize their extensive databases to proactively examine data beyond accountability requirements. A discussion focuses on how results helped target areas for improvement and identified further analysis within schools.
