    Type of Review: New.
    Title: Conversion Magnet Schools Evaluation.
    Frequency: On Occasion.
    Affected Public: Not-for-profit institutions.
    Reporting and Recordkeeping Hour Burden:
    Responses: 94.
    Burden Hours: 1,062.
    Abstract: The Conversion Magnet Schools Evaluation studies the 
impact of federally funded elementary magnet schools on the academic 
achievement of students who attend them, and on minority group 
isolation in the schools. The first phase of the study investigates the 
feasibility of conducting rigorous research using experimental or 
quasi-experimental designs to explore the relationship between magnet 
programs and student achievement both for students who attend magnet 
schools as their neighborhood schools and for students from other 
neighborhoods who must apply for admission. Collection and analysis of 
student data will proceed if the studies are found to be feasible. The 
evaluation will inform policymakers and researchers on the 
effectiveness of magnet schools as an educational approach and a type 
of school choice.
