Early test scores do not future predict academic growth; School quality matters more
from THE Journal
Early test scores do not predict future academic growth, according to new research from Stanford. The research was performed by Sean Reardon, a professor who studies poverty and inequality in education at the university, and based upon analysis of test scores of students in grades 3-8 at 11,000 districts across the country. Those scores are stored in the Stanford Education Data Archive, which makes a range of data from schools across the United States publicly available.
