Title:Tracking achievement gaps and assessing the impact of NCLB on the gaps
Source:http://www.civilrightsproject.harvard.edu/resea...
Date:2006
Organization:Harvard Civil Rights Project
Short Description:This study offers systematic trend analyses of NAEP national and state-level public school fourth and eighth graders’ reading and math achievement results during pre-NCLB (1990-2001) and post-NCLB (2002-2005) periods. It compares post-NCLB trends in reading and math achievement with pre-NCLB trends among different racial and socioeconomic groups of fourth and eighth graders from across the nation and states.
Annotation:Key Findings of this study include: -NCLB did not have a significant impact on improving reading and math achievement across the nation and states. -Based on the NAEP results, the national average achievement remains flat in reading and grows at the same pace in math after NCLB than before. -In grade 4 math, there was a temporary improvement right after NCLB, but it was followed by a return to the pre-reform growth rate.
