Abstract

This MQP modeled the MCAS (Massachusetts Comprehensive Assessment System) scores in relation to certain socioeconomic and demographic variables (our predictors) identified through our research. We employed multivariate statistical methods to build a multivariate regression model to identify the form of the association between scores and predictors. We specified a set of regressors that are functions of the predictors. Our analysis identified the statistically significant variables as well as investigated the evolution of MCAS scores over time.
