    Abstract: As part of the National Assessment of the Individuals 
with Disabilities Education Act of 2004 (Pub. L. 108-446), the 
Institute of Education Sciences is evaluating how schools being 
required to adopt programs focused on improving academic outcomes for 
students with disabilities. The focus of the study is examining trends 
in achievement among students with disabilities in both schools that 
are and are not accountable for the performance of those students. In 
addition, the study focuses on describing improvement efforts in 
schools that have failed to make adequate yearly progress for students 
with disabilities in particular grades and subjects. The evaluation 
will use EdFacts data as well as data from surveys of school principals 
and special education designees about their school improvement 
practices. The study will use descriptive statistics and regression 
analysis to study how student outcomes and school practices vary with 
the identification of elementary and middle schools for improvement.
