2 Mean Mean SD SD Min Min Median Median Max Max ITED-Q F/R Lun % Un. Min % Enrollment 1,287 1, ,412 1,375 2,502 2,109 The samples were also matched to the extent possible on the grade range of students served by the school (i.e., grades 9 12, 10 12, 8 12, or 6 12). See the endnote 4 for more details. The somewhat smaller standard deviations of the match sample are to be expected, since there are fewer potential matches for schools that are at the very high or very low end of the state distribution on each of these variables. For example, the school with maximum enrollment (2,502) is one of the largest schools in the state. There are very few schools with similar enrollments, so the chance that one of them is also similar on the other matching variables is small compared to schools nearer the average enrollment of just under 1,300 students. Comparing WASL Pass Rates Following the matching, the numbers of students completing, and percent passing, each tenth-grade WASL test in each of the 44 schools were entered into our data file. The total numbers of students in each sample of 22 schools completing each tenth-grade WASL test in and the percent of students who passed are given in the next table. As the table shows, the overall passing rate was considerably higher in the sample in Mathematics and Science and slightly higher in Reading and Writing. Mathematics Reading Writing Science N % Pass N % Pass N % Pass N % Pass 7, , , , , , , , Of particular interest in this study are the percents of students passing the WASL Mathematics test in the 22 matched pairs of schools. In the following scatterplot, each point shows the percent of students who passed in the school plotted against the percent of students who passed in the matching school. The line on the plot shows where a point would lie if the matched pair had equal percents of students pass the WASL. Sixteen of the 22 points lie above the line, indicating that the students in these schools passed at a higher rate than the students in the matching schools. 2

3 WASL Math Pass Data, Grade 10, Equivalently, 16 of 22 differences ( match) in percentages of students passing the WASL Mathematics test were positive. These differences ranged from 21.7 to 13.5 with median 4.25 and mean 4.0. Further, the size of these differences is statistically significant. The test of significance, a paired t-test, showed that the mean difference in passing percentages for the schools minus the matched schools is significantly greater than zero (t = 2.41; p =.025). The passing percents on the WASL Science test were higher in the school in 17 of the 22 matched school pairs. Differences ( match) in percent of students passing the WASL Science test ranged from 20.4 to 23.5 with median 3.6 and mean 3.4. Using all 22 matched pairs of schools, the differences in passing percentages in schools and their matches are not statistically significant (t = 1.52; p =.144). However, it is informative to consider that the matched pair in the lower left of the above plot was not an especially good match. The school in that pair is a grade 6 12 school, very unusual in the state of Washington. In order to match this school with another grade 6 12 school, it was necessary to choose a "match" that did not fit as well as the other matched pairs on the three most important matching variables. (The school in the pair was 7 points lower on the ITED-Q, 33.4 percentage points higher on percent of students qualified for free or reduced lunch, and 17.5 percentage points higher on percent of underrepresented minorities.) Perhaps not surprisingly, this matched pair is the one with the minimum difference in percentages passing in both mathematics ( 13.5%) and science ( 23.5%). If this pair is removed from the analyses, the differences in passing percentages significantly favor the schools in the 21 remaining matched school pairs in both mathematics (t = 3.22; p =.004) and science (t = 2.44; p =.024). 3

4 The Low-Income Achievement Gap A continuing issue in education is the achievement gap between students from lowincome families and those from other families. The following table and graph give the numbers of students from low-income families (eligible for free or reduced lunch) and the percent of those who passed the tenth-grade WASL Mathematics test in each sample. The same data are provided for students of families that are not classified as low income. Low Income Students Other Students N % Pass Math N % Pass Math % Gap 1, , , , P e r c e n t Low Income Others Gap WASL Math Pass Data, Grade 10, The WASL Mathematics pass rate was higher in the sample for both the students from low-income families and for the other students. The gap in the pass rate was slightly less in the sample, but the difference in gaps between the and the match schools does not approach statistical significance. 4
