Impact Analysis of the Knowledge is Power Program

KIPP Foundation (2005)


KIPP schools are tuition-free, open-enrollment, college preparatory public schools, serving high-need communities. EPI conducted a preliminary impact evaluation of the KIPP Schools by comparing school-level Stanford 9 and Stanford 10 (SAT) data supplied by the KIPP Foundation to national growth on this test. The study found that 5th-grade cohorts at KIPP schools posted greater than average academic gains on the SAT reading, language, and mathematics testing, a finding consistent with prior research on KIPP schools.
