High School Data Team Understanding Socioeconomic Status (SES) and Racial Gaps Co-Chairs: Scott Summers Ororo T'Challa-Wakandas Members: Rachel Grey James Howlett Katherine Pryde Kurt Wagner Consultant: Sean Parker This Demo Uses Fictional Data For Purposes of Example The Ultimate Goal is to Answer Your Questions with Your Data DataTeamConsulting.Com

2
Are there socioeconomic and/or racial gaps in the percentage of general education (G.E.) classes taken? Are there SES and/or racial gaps in academic achievement? When we compare students who take the same percentage of G.E. classes, do the achievement gaps persist? Three Questions About SES and Racial Gaps Yes. DataTeamConsulting.Com

3
Are there SES and/or racial gaps in the percentage of G.E. classes taken? –397 students, our current juniors –We gathered data on the course level of students freshman and sophomore courses. –For each student, we considered what percentage of his/her leveled courses were G.E. –We separated the data by SES and race.

Are there SES and/or racial gaps in academic achievement? –418 students, our current juniors –In order to measure academic achievement, we created a composite. Unweighted Grade Point Average (GPA) English Language Arts MCAS (ELA MCAS) Mathematics MCAS (Math MCAS) –We used histograms to explore the data. –We separated the data by SES and race.

When we compare students who take the same percentage of G.E. classes, do the achievement gaps persist? –395 students, our current juniors –We first saw that percentage of G.E. classes is correlated with SES and race. –We just saw that academic achievement is correlated with SES and race. –We will see that percentage of G.E. classes is correlated with academic achievement (using histograms and a scatterplot). –We will disentangle the correlations using a statistical model with statistical controls.

295 Students Took No G.E. Courses Mean = Students Took Some G.E. Courses Mean = Students Took Half G.E. Courses Mean = Students Took Mostly G.E. Courses Mean = We can look at the same information without grouping students into four categories (None, Some, Half, Most). We will use a scatterplot to do so.

GLH testing tells us to keep RACE and FREELUNCHEVER. Zero-skew transformation helps to meet normality assumption. Robust standard errors address heteroskedasticity. No interactions were stat sig, but we want to keep an eye on them as our sample size (and statistical power) increases. Notes: Not For The General Audience DataTeamConsulting.Com
