This dataset contains the school-level data related to the study "Methodological Decisions and their impacts on the perceived relations between school funding and educational achievement". The data contained within was pulled from data from the Florida Progress Monitoring and Reporting Network (PMRN; https://www.fldoe.org/core/fileparse.php/7544/urlt/PMRNv51PSLUG.pdf) as well as school-level per pupil expenditure data from the Florida Department of Education (https://web08.fldoe.org/TransparencyReports/CostReportSelectionPage.aspx). Data for this project included all public students and schools in the state of Florida during the 2009-2010 school year for whom reading comprehension/fluency data was available at both Fall (Wave 1) and Spring (Wave 3) assessment periods. Funding/expenditure data is further broken down by spending category and level (school vs. district).
This data is school-level, and as such represents data aggregated from student-level data over the same time period and using the same measures. The second tab contains a codebook describing all of the variables used in the dataset.
