An Analysis of Performance-Based Accountability: Factors Shaping School Performance in Two Urban Schools Districts.
Powers, Jeanne M.
Educational Policy, v17 n5 p558-85 Nov 2003
Using student socioeconomic status, teacher training and experience, and school characteristic variables, analyzes 2 years of California's Academic Performance Index scores for 2 large urban districts. Finds strong evidence that this measure of school performance is largely driven by the socioeconomic conditions of the school. Teacher training and experience also have positive effects.
