2014 KINDERGARTEN MAP Results
Our youngest KIPPsters are far outperforming the national norm on the Measures of Academic Progress (MAP) test, which is administered in the fall and spring to assess academic growth over the year.
2014 Eight Grade CRCT Results
Our eighth graders outperformed their peers on Georgia's Criterion Referenced Competency Tests (CRCT).
2014 High School EOCT Results
KIPP Atlanta Collegiate students outperformed their peers on the 9th Grade Literature, Biology, and American Literature End of Course Tests (EOCT). Coordinate Algebra and Analytic Geometry are new tests that have changed significantly from previous EOCT assessments. Scores on these tests have dropped statewide as the tests have been revised to reflect the increased rigor of the Common Core. We are working hard to make sure that our instruction and students meet the demands of this new curriculum.

KIPP's National Impact
The KIPP Foundation commissioned Mathematic Policy Research to conduct a rigorous third party evaluation to examine how KIPP schools fare over the long term. KIPP WAYS Academy, KIPP STRIVE Academy, and KIPP South Fulton Academy were included in the study. Key findings released in 2013 included:
KIPP middle schools have positive and statistically significant impacts on student achievement across all years and all subject areas examined. According to a matched comparison design study, KIPP students showed gains in math, reading, science, and social studies on state assessments. This finding confirms that we have been able to maintain the quality of our middle schools as we have expanded our network.
The magnitude of KIPP’s achievement impacts is substantial. Across all grade levels and subjects studied, KIPP’s achievement impacts are large enough to be educationally significant.
The matched comparison design produces estimates of KIPP’s achievement impacts similar to estimates of the same impacts based on an experimental, lottery-based design. Researchers found that KIPP’s achievement gains are similar for the matched comparison design and the experimental lottery analysis--demonstrating that parental motivation cannot explain our student’s achievement gains.
In the lottery sample, average KIPP impacts on a nationally normed test that includes items assessing higher-order thinking skills were similar to impacts on high-stakes state tests. For students in the lottery sample, gains on the national norm referenced test mimicked those on state tests.
