An Exploratory Descriptive Study on MSP-like Activities in a Sample of 'Best Matched' Comparison Schools in Indiana


In our latest continuation study, we matched MSP schools with non-MSP schools on seven demographic variables for comparing school-level achievement from 2001-02 to 2007-08. The study only found statistically signficant results at the high school level in mathematics. This general absence of statistically significant findings may be due to a number of factors, such as the use of only a subset of data from the entire Cohort I MSPs. In this exploratory, descriptive study, we focus on one specific condition that may affect our matched results, namely, the extent to which non-MSP matched schools in our sample carried out MSP-like activities during 2001-02 to 2007-08.
