A Think Twice Review of:

Answering the Question That Matters Most: Has Student Achievement Increased Since No Child Left Behind?

Think Twice - Jul 02, 2007

This report concludes that since the implementation of NCLB in 2002, on average, student test scores have increased, the achievement gap has narrowed, and achievement gains post-NCLB have increased faster than before NCLB.

Reviewer(s) - John T. Yun, University of California at Santa Barbara

Yun's review of this report finds that there are important weaknesses in the methodology used and that the wording of the findings and key conclusions in the report imply a much stronger connection between the implementation of NCLB than can be substantiated by the data.
