Title:  Identifying South Carolina charter schools that are "beating the odds"
Description: The purpose of this report was to determine which South Carolina charter schools performed better than could be predicted, considering demographic and socioeconomic characteristics. This study identified South Carolina charter schools as "beating the odds" when they outperform their predicted level of performance on standardized tests given school demographics using a hierarchical linear model approach. Results indicate that for grades 35 13 schools beat the odds in English language arts and 14 schools beat the odds in mathematics. For grades 68, 12 schools beat the odds in English language arts and nine schools beat the odds in mathematics.
