Are Effective or Meritorious Schools Meretricious?
Stephenson, Robert S.; Levine, Daniel U.
Urban Review, v19 n1 p25-34 1987
Data on achievement gains in urban schools were analyzed to identify those schools with achievement consistently higher or lower than schools with similar characteristics. Only one school showed unusually high achievement gains. Efforts to identify and reward schools based on achievement may be erroneous and may decrease morale. (Author/VM)
