The 2013 study, KIPP Middle Schools: Impacts on Achievement and Other Outcomes, Final Report, examined whether attending a Knowledge is Power Program (KIPP) middle school improved students’ academic performance for up to 4 years following enrollment. For the experimental portion of the study, researchers used admissions lotteries to place about 1,000 students into either a KIPP middle school or a traditional middle school. For the quasi-experimental portion of the study, researchers used baseline achievement and demographic characteristics to match 15,916 students in 41 KIPP middle schools with similar students who had attended non-KIPP public middle schools in the same school district in the previous year. Researchers then used state assessments in math, reading, science, and social studies to measure student achievement. The experimental portion of the study meets WWC evidence standards without reservations for the 1-year follow-up. However, the research on the later follow-ups meets standards with reservations because of the large number of students who stopped participating in the study. The quasi-experimental portion of the study meets WWC evidence standards with reservations; although the KIPP students and traditional public school students included in the analysis were well-matched, other differences may have existed between the groups that could have influenced student achievement.

In addition, the report presents percentile distributions and demographic subgroup results, including results by gender, race/ethnicity, region of the country, parents' highest level of education, school type, type of school location, and student eligibility for the free/reduced price lunch program. One chapter focuses on a second set of results that includes the performance of special-needs students who were permitted accommodations in the test administration. The report presents information on contexts for learning U.S. history, including classroom practices and students' use of computers. The report also includes sample test questions and examples of student responses.
