Adding Value to the Mathematics and Science Partnership Evaluations


SUMMARY

Raudenbush, S.W., & Willms, D.J. (1995). The estimation of school effects. Journal of Educational and Behavioral Statistics, 20(4) (winter), 307-336.

The article presents a statistical model that defines two different types of school effects: one appropriate for parents choosing schools for their children, the second for agencies evaluating school practice. A quasi-experimental study design is applied to data collected in Scotland.  The researchers conclude with a general discussion of the larger role of school evaluation that supports school improvement.
