MTI2006 : Standardized Test Cohort Analysis

Cohort: a relatively fixed year-group of students that moved through the grades together (Survivors, Newcomers, Attrition, Phantom)

Z Score: a reference point that is a benchmark calculated from national data – allows for better comparison of how group is doing compared to national norm

See PPT for the Cohort Rule of Thumb on Diffences/Effect Size

Keep in mind implication of releasing specific school data district-wide – perhaps go w/school vs. district average

Cohort analysis allows for interesting comparisons of data between groups incl. comparing groups separated by several years

Cohort works best w/SPSS

Presenter: Bernard Schuster of the Blue Valley Schools
