The Texas Study of Students at Risk (TxSSAR) is a comprehensive evaluation examining the effectiveness of three state-level programs with the common goal of helping students at risk of failure to achieve academically. The study comprises investigations of the Optional Extended Year Program (OEYP), the Texas After School Initiative (TASI), and the Ninth Grade Success Initiative (NGSI), and case studies of districts that received NGSI grants. The evaluation covers a four-year period between the 1999-2000 and 2002-03 school years. Appended are: (1) Theory of Change Model for the NGSI/TASI/OEYP Evaluation; (2) Estimating TASI and NGSI Student Participation; (3) TAAS Reading and Mathematics Passing Rates by Grade; and (4) Case Study Site Selection Indicators. (Contains 97 tables and 19 figures.) [For executive summary, "Texas Study of Students at Risk: Efficacy of Grants Supporting Academic Success from Elementary through High School," see ED538140.]
