The purpose of this study was to assess the impact of the common planning time
for a team of middle school teachers by comparing the standardized test scores of
middle school students selected from two school districts located in North Texas.
An analysis of variance (ANOVA) 2 * 4 design was utilized to measure the Texas
Assessment of Knowledge and Skills (TAKS) math and reading scale score for 7th grade
students from the test administered in spring 2005. The data for this study were
compared by the variables of school, gender, and ethnicity. The measuring tool utilized
in this study determined the ratio of the amount of variance of the scores for individuals
of between-groups as opposed to the amount of variance of within-groups, indicating if
there were a statistically significant difference on the scores in any one particular
variable compared to the variances of scores for the other variables in this study.
The statistical results indicated that there were no statistical significant
differences in the scores of students attending a middle school where the teachers
received a common planning time. However, there was a noted difference in the
percentage ratings on the Academic Excellence Indicator System (AEIS) report
published by TEA for the African American students who attended the school with the
common planning time. These students had higher scores on the TAKS reading test.
The TAKS math scores did not indicate any notable differences.
