This report analyzed how the school districts of Massachusetts performed in the Massachusetts Comprehensive Assessment System (MCAS) exams for English and Math that are administered in Massachusetts and assessed possible influences on the scores of the individual cities or school districts including Per Pupil Expenditure, Teacher Salary, Per Capita Income and Geographic Location. In this report we assessed if there were improvements from 1998 to 1999 scores and determined possible trends between the different ethnic groups.
