How Good Was Your School District? This activity is used in a Research Methods class for undergraduate students. This activity uses data to evlauate and compare school district performance. This project is designed for students in Michigan, but it can be adapted for students in any location. I use this in my Research Methods classes, and students really enjoy the assignment because it allows them to empirically examine the issues underlying school performance using data that captures some of their own experiences.
