WWC Summary of Evidence for this Intervention
Knowledge is Power Program (KIPP)
The Knowledge is Power Program (KIPP) is a nationwide
network of free open-enrollment college-preparatory schools in under-resourced communities
throughout the United States. KIPP schools are usually established under
state charter school laws and KIPP is America’s largest network of charter schools.
KIPP Aims to prepare poor and minority students
to succeed in a college preparatory curriculum.
It provides training for principals and offers them
greater autonomy over budget and hiring decisions.
KIPP schools provide about 60% more instructional time than traditional public schools—through a longer school
day and additional instructional days on Saturdays
and in the summer.

An indicator of the effect of the intervention, the improvement index can be interpreted as the expected change in percentile rank for an average comparison group student if that student had received the intervention.
For more, please see the WWC Glossary entry for improvement index.
The indicator represents the highest level of similarity found between your students and each of the high-quality studies of the intervention. Three filled in ovals indicates that at least one study that met standards was conducted on students very similar to yours. Clicking on the indicator for a study will provide information on the similarity for each of the characteristics you selected.
