Baggerly, Jennifer; Ferretti, Larissa K.
Professional School Counseling, v12 n1 p1-9 Oct 2008
What is the impact of natural disasters on students' statewide assessment scores? To answer this question, Florida Comprehensive Assessment Test (FCAT) scores of 55,881 students in grades 4 through 10 were analyzed to determine if there were significant decreases after the 2004 hurricanes. Results reveal that there was statistical but no practical significance between the FCAT scores of students in high- and low-hurricane-impacted schools. Implications for school counselors are provided. (Contains 1 figure and 4 tables.)
