Description

This year 2006 report focuses on the potential effects of minimum cell sizes and confidence interval sizes for students in Special Education subgroups on school-level AYP determinations. The report specifically considers these effects in a comparison of all students to the Special Education subgroup, in the inclusion of data for students in Special Education in such determinations, and the potential effects on AYP of adding grades 3-8 into calculations for the 2005-2006 school year. The report includes a study using data from five states to model confidence intervals and cell-size combinations and presents the results in answer to the research questions.
