Some Findings from an Independent Investigation of the Tennessee STAR Experiment and from Other Investigations of Class Size Effects.
Hanushek, Eric A.
Educational Evaluation and Policy Analysis, v21 n2 p143-63 Sum 1999
Reviews Tennessee's Project Student/Teacher Achievement Ratio (STAR) and puts the results in the context of other nonexperimental evidence about class size. Nonexperimental evidence does not support any achievement gains attributable to class-size reduction, and empirical evidence from STAR has design and implementation flaws that cast doubt on its findings.
