NCES 2015018 School Composition and the Black-White Achievement Gap
School Composition and the Black-White Achievement Gap explores public schools’ demographic composition, in particular, the proportion of Black students enrolled in schools (also referred to “Black student density” in schools) and its relation to the Black-White achievement gap. This NCES study, the first of its kind, used the 2011 NAEP grade 8 mathematics assessment data. As reported earlier, Black students at the national level, on average, scored 30 points lower than their White peers in 2011.

Among the results highlighted in the report, the study indicates that the achievement gap between Black and White students remains whether schools fall in the highest density category (i.e., schools that composed of at least 60 percent Black students) or the lowest density category (i.e., schools that composed of less than or equal to 20 percent Black students). When accounting for factors such as student socioeconomic status and other student, teacher, and school characteristics, Black students, and Black male students in particular, scored lower in the highest- rather than the lowest density schools. Further, the portion of the Black-White achievement gap attributed to within-school differences (e.g., how schools internally distribute resources and treat students) is larger than the portion attributed to between-school differences (e.g., how schools vary in technology, updated textbooks, and qualified teachers).

REL 2015088 Stated Briefly: Changes in financial aid and student enrollment at historically Black colleges and universities after the tightening of PLUS credit standards
The purpose of this study was to examine the changes in financial aid and student enrollment at historically Black colleges and universities (HBCUs) after the U.S. Department of Education increased the credit history requirements necessary to obtain Parental Loans for Undergraduate Students (PLUS). The study used institution-level data to examine financial aid and enrollment changes at four-year non-profit institutions in 2012/13 (the first full academic year after the new credit standards were in place). Descriptive statistics summarize financial aid and enrollment changes at HBCUs and at non-HBCUs that enroll a comparable proportion of low-income students. Results indicate that PLUS loans declined substantially at HBCUs in 2012/13, and the decreases were not fully replaced by other types of federal financial aid. HBCUs also experienced larger declines in enrollment than other institutions in 2012/13, corresponding to the larger decline in PLUS recipients at HBCUs. Enrollment declines at HBCUs were especially large for first-year students. Nationwide enrollment decreased more for Black students than for students in other groups. The results in this report may help inform policymakers who are considering future rule changes to the PLUS program.
