A Summary of Project Efforts to Examine the Impact of the LSC on Student Achievement
Author(s): Banilower, Eric R. Publication Date: October 2000
In February 2000, HRI surveyed the PIs of the LSC projects to ascertain whether they had undertaken any studies examining the impact of the LSC on student achievement. Forty-seven of the 68 projects responded. Of these, 12 indicated that they had no student achievement studies. HRI then contacted the remaining 35 projects for information about their study design, instrumentation, and results. Twenty-seven of the projects participated in the interviews between April and June 2000. The interviews revealed twelve projects had completed or nearly finished studies, four had begun studies, and six were in the planning stage of their studies. The other five projects interviewed did not have student achievement studies. This report analyzes individually the nine completed, or nearly completed, studies HRI was able to obtain, and then attempts to draw some conclusions across all of them.
