Tindal, Gerald; And Others
Remedial and Special Education (RASE), v8 n5 p19-28 Sep-Oct 1987
The study examined the hypothesis that different evaluative interpretations of studies of special education effectiveness may be a function of the manner in which data are summarized and reported. Four metrics are compared including raw score, grade-equivalent score, z-score, and discrepancy index. Criteria for selecting metrics for program evaluation are considered. (Author/DB)
