Algebra I and College Preparatory Diploma Outcomes Among Virginia Students

Wednesday, August 18, 2021
11:00 am–12:00 pm EDT

The National Center for Education Statistics STATS-DC Data Conference is an annual conference that convenes education researchers, policymakers, and data system managers interested in learning about updates on federal and national activities affecting data collection and reporting, and information about the best new approaches in collecting, reporting, and using education statistics. In this session, REL Appalachia (REL AP) and Virginia Department of Education staff share information about Virginia's state longitudinal data system (SLDS) and its uses in REL AP and beyond, for researchers and educational stakeholders. This session includes a presentation of a recent study that utilized Virginia's SLDS and local district data to study mathematics course taking pathways of students who completed Algebra I in grades 7–9, examine mathematics outcomes of students who completed Algebra I in grade 7, and improve implementation of policies and practices that promote equitable access and success in mathematics.
