Evaluating the relationships between poverty and school performance


By: Andrew Hegedus


In the report – Evaluating the Relationships Between Poverty and School Performance – we investigate how the heavy weighting of achievement data in the evaluation of U.S. schools clouds how much learning may actually be occurring, particularly in high-poverty communities. While achievement data plays a critical role in tracking student progress, the study shows that growth measures offer a clearer, more accurate picture of learning. The gallery below presents our findings and gives you the chance to explore how your school site compares to schools from the sample.
