Betts (economics, U. of California, San Diego) and Hill (Center on Reinventing Public Education, U. of Washington Bothell) compile 11 essays by education and economics scholars from the US who look at ways to measure the success of charter schools. The book is a result of an initiative by the National Charter School Research Project to review research and suggest ways parents, educators, and policy makers can assess charter school performance. Chapters consider how to improve estimates of performance, especially their benefits to students, and how policy makers can learn more about charter schools and make better use of evidence. They address achievement results, nontest outcomes, existing studies of achievement, selectivity bias, lotteries, maturation, data on teachers, state studies, the political uses of research, and ways to improve the quality of data.
