72 ITBS/SAT – Simple Comparison Mean PercentileSchool A - Higher ScoreSchool B - Lower ScoreBy looking at this information you would judge that school A is performing better than school B
73 ITBS/SAT – Control for Poverty Mean PercentileALowerPovertyBHigherPovertyPercent Free/Reduced LunchWhen you take into consideration or control for another factor such as poverty, the conclusion may not be the same. When plotting the score for school a and school b against poverty, your conclusion may be different.
74 ITBS/SAT – Regression Line Mean PercentileRegression line =typical performancestandardPercent Free/Reduced LunchIn this slide, all schools in a system have been plotted. The red line is the “regression line” which is the typical performance standard.
75 Comparison of Two Scores Mean PercentileBelow the typical performance standard(fewer points)ABAbove the typical performance standard (more points)Percent Free/Reduced LunchSchool A is below the line and school b is above the line. So school b is actually performing better than expected and school a is performing lower than expected. School b would receive more “points” than school a in our model even though they have a lower average score. The most important thing to look at is the distance from the “dot” to the regression line.
