According to the Literature: Four times more likely to drop out of school before graduating high school when moved three times before 8th grade Lower standardized test scores Challenges for teachers and students Multiple moves result in significant impact Significant relationship between poverty and mobility
  • 6. Research Question What impact does transiency have on student achievement in reading and math?

  • 8. Data Analysis Reading GCRCT Mean Scores Math GCRCT Mean Scores Not Mobile 867.5 Not Mobile 870.1 Mobile 860.9 Mobile 861.4 Highly Mobile 855.9 Highly Mobile 849.9 Highly Mobile Highly Mobile Mobile Series1 Not Mobile Mobile Series1 Not Mobile 850 855 860 865 870 830 840 850 860 870 880
  • 9. Conclusion • • There is not a significant difference between any of the groups on the reading or math GCRCT (p>.05). The findings indicate transiency does not impact third grade student achievement in reading and math as measured by GCRCT.
