Improvement in Test Scores after One-Year Intervention
September 27, 2012
There is no single solution to the many problems facing America’s education system, but research has shown that many small-scale interventions offer the promise of bettering student outcomes. For instance, incentivizing students to read books has been shown to increase reading comprehension scores. Other interventions include restructuring schools so that they combine elementary- and middle-school grade levels into K-8 schools, starting school later, increasing after-school programs, and reducing class size.
