Guha, R., Tyler, N., Astudillo, S., and Wolf, R. (2015). Evaluation of Rocketship Student’s Middle School Outcomes: First-Year Findings. SRI International, Menlo Park, CA
In 2014, Rocketship Education contracted with the Center for Education Policy at SRI International to conduct a rigorous independent evaluation of Rocketship alumni’s middle school readiness and success relative to that of their peers who did not attend Rocketship elementary schools. This document summarizes the findings from the first year of the evaluation. SRI’s final report is expected in Summer 2016 and will include further analyses of student achievement outcomes and the characteristics and behaviors associated with middle school success among Rocketship alumni.
