Date of Award
Master of Education (MEd)
Among 9th and 11th grade classes at Skowhegan Area High School, problems included high freshman failure rates, high drop out rates, and low SAT achievement levels. The purpose was to determine the relationship between two interventions (9th grade teaming and professional learning groups), and 9th grade failure rates and 11th grade SAT scores. We found no decrease in failure rates after teaming implementation. SAT data were unavailable in time for study completion. In conclusion, the two intervention programs need extended time to create clear and accurate data.
