Delaware Education Research & Development Center
The goal of this study is to monitor the impact of Delaware’s Student Accountability Plan on students in Delaware. Students enrolled in 3rd or 6th grade during the 1997-98 school year were selected as cohorts and followed over a three year period (1997-2000). Based on the recommendations of several national educational organizations and existing research, several issues were examined in light of the accountability plan.
