The study utilizes predominantly extant data (student assessment data collected by LEAs and school personnel data collected by the state department of education) but includes a brief Teacher Survey and classroom observations in the Spring of 2009, with a total of 640 respondents on the survey (and 640 teachers’ classrooms observed).
