The Longitudinal Evaluation of School Change and Performance in Title I Schools - This study measures changes in student performance in reading and math for a sample of Title I schools, and takes a special look at those students with initially low achievement. The study also surveys teachers about the curriculum and instruction methods they offer and how classroom practices impact low-achieving students. Some relationships were found between 4th-grade teachers' survey responses and their students' growth in reading, especially with regard to the frequency and rigor of instructional activities, the teachers' own level of preparation in several instructional techniques and the way families prepared their students for learning.
