CFDA Number: | 84.366A - Mathematics and Science Partnership program |
Program Goal: To improve the quality of mathematics and science teachers and increase both the number of highly qualified math and science teachers and the achievement of students participating in Mathematics and Science Partnerships programs. |
Objective 1 of 2: To increase the number of highly qualified mathematics and science teachers in schools participating in Mathematics and Science Partnership (MSP) programs. |
Indicator 1.1 of 2: Highly qualified teachers in MSP schools: the number or percentage of elementary certified teachers who significantly increase their knowledge of mathematics and science. |
Source: U. S. Department of Education, Office of Elementary and Secondary Education, project annual reports. Frequency: Annually. Next Data Available: January 2006 Data Validated By: No Formal Verification. Improvements: MSP now has a contractor to collect and aggregate data, and expects to move to an on-line data collection system Explanation: Data for 2005 are pending. The FY 2004 target was to establish a baseline. However, as most states made awards in late FY 2004, data were not available for FY 2004. FY 2005 is the new baseline year. The target for FY 2006 is the baseline plus 20%. |
Indicator 1.2 of 2: Highly qualified teachers in MSP schools: the percentage of mathematics and science middle and high school teachers who are not highly qualified upon beginning participation in the program who become highly qualified upon completion of the program. |

Objective 2 of 2: To increase the percentage of students in classrooms whose teachers are participating in Mathematics and Science Partnership (MSP) programs who score at the proficient or advanced level in mathematics and science on state assessments. |
Indicator 2.1 of 2: Student achievement in MSP schools: the percentage of students scoring at proficient or advanced on state mathematics assessments. |
