The Effects of Differentiated Assistance on Student Achievement

This report examined whether differentiated assistance (DA) improved student achievement and reduced the achievement gap two years after it was put into place. We estimated the impact of DA impact by comparing districts receiving assistance to changes in districts that never received support, but were similar in terms of their performance on the California Schools Dashboard.
