Document Number: 8718Changing the Odds for Student Success: What Matters Most - This document is based on the findings of more than 1,000 studies and reports related to seven components of school systems and the learning needs of underserved students. It calls out those practices that demonstrate the largest effects on student achievement. It goes beyond merely identifying "what works," because the problem is not that too few programs "work", but that so many things "sort of work". Consequently the report identifies what matters most--those influences and approaches that stand clearly above the rest.
