Journal of Educational Research, v94 n6 p336-45 Jul-Aug 2001
Used data from Tennessee's Project STAR, a longitudinal class size experiment, to study the cumulative effects of reduced class size in the early grades on academic achievement. Results indicated that controlling for achievement in the previous year, small classes in grades 1-3 yielded statistically significant additional positive effects on reading and mathematics achievement.
