Description: For report NCEE 2012-4014 The Effects of Success in Sight as a School Improvement Intervention http://ies.ed.gov/ncee/edlabs/projects/project.asp?ProjectID=20.

This data file contains data from a cluster randomized trial examined the impact of the Success in Sight on improving teacher and student outcomes in reading and mathematics. The study found no direct causal evidence supporting Success in Sight on student achievement in mathematics and reading. School recruitment efforts yielded 52 participating schools (26 treatment schools and 26 control schools) in eight districts. Researchers assigned participating schools to matched pairs based on their 2006 mean school reading scores and the percentage of students qualifying for free or reduced-price lunch. Within each matched pair, one school was randomly assigned to participate in the Success in Sight intervention (as a treatment school), and the other school was assigned to conduct business as usual (as a control school). Within participating schools, there were 8,182 students with reading achievement scores, 8,213 students with mathematics achievement scores, and 1,516 teacher participants.
