The Nevada Department of Education has released its annual student achievement data report for students in the Nevada Educational Choice Scholarship Program and the results are positive overall.
Although the number of students whose test scores could be tracked longitudinally over three years was limited because different schools may use different assessments, 68.4 percent of those that could be compared showed positive learning gains (defined as a maintained or raised score year over year). For those students whose test scores could be tracked over two years, the results were also positive overall (65.7 percent). Read the state’s full report here.
These results confirm what other studies have shown (here), the longer the time period that students participate in these scholarship programs, the more they benefit from them.
