Closing the Racial Achievement Gap: The Role of Reforming Instructional Practices - This study applies the technique of Hierarchical Linear Modeling to a nationally representative sample of 13,000 fourth graders who took the 2000 National Assessment of Educational Progress in mathematics to identify instructional practices that reduce the achievement gap. The author concludes that instructional practices can affect within-school gaps but not between-school gaps and that the practices that make the most difference are in specific topic areas, such as instruction on measurement and working with data.
