I think the "hard data" you refer to is often the key given pressures
for success on high-stakes proficiency tests. We're just now (after 5
years) getting statistically significant results that proficiency
scores ARE higher for those students of teachers who participated in
the NSF project. We presented it to the president of the school board
(who was a little more convinced that kits work...but who would still
like textbooks back). I think the pressure for test results (without
data to support our programs) is a hard sell.
