6 Talent Development Evaluation Figure ES.1 Impacts on Key Outcomes for First-Time Ninth-Grade Students in Talent Development Schools and Non-Talent Development Schools 30 Impact = 18.4*** 25 Percentage Point Change from Baseline Impact = 8.6*** Impact = 11.7*** Talent Development Schools Non-Talent Development Schools Impact = 9.4*** Impact = 10.4** Core Academic Curriculum Completed Math Credit Earned Algebra Credit Earned English Credit Earned Promoted to the 10th Grade SOURCE: MDRC calculations from individual students school records from a large, urban school district. NOTES: Sample includes 9th-grade students from five clusters. Each cluster consisted of a Talent Development school matched with a group of between two and five non-talent Development schools. Students in the sample were included on the district's transcript and attendance records. The sample excludes students who did not attempt at least one credit during a given school year. First-time 9th-grade students were defined as students whose records indicate that they were in the 9th grade in the year under study and in the 8th grade in the previous year's administrative data file. Each bar represents the difference between the baseline average (the average over the three-year period prior to the initial implementation of Talent Development for a given cluster) and the average over the follow-up period (a one-, two-, or three-year period, depending on the cluster, after Talent Development was implemented). The impact at follow-up was calculated as the difference in deviations from the baseline average between Talent Development schools and non-talent Development schools. A two-tailed t-test was applied to the difference between the baseline average and the average over the follow-up period and to the impact at follow-up. Standard errors and statistical significance levels are adjusted to account for cohort effects. Statistical significance levels are indicated as: *** = 1 percent; ** = 5 percent; * = 10 percent.
