Myers, Rebecca E.
ProQuest LLC, Ed.D. Dissertation, Lincoln Memorial University
This study investigated the relationship between academic achievement scores for Hispanic and all students within Tennessee. The study compared the measurement of achievement scores by the Tennessee Department of Education (TDOE) on standardized Tennessee Comprehensive Assessment Program (TCAP) evaluations for 5th-grade students and Gateway exams for 9th-grade students throughout the years 2007-2009. The achievement scores data focused on language arts (English) and mathematics for the two grade levels. The study used Urban Rural Continuum data to analyze Hispanic academic performance based on urban and rural environments. The results helped educators and administrators to understand specific needs of Hispanic students in differential educational environments.
