The purpose of this study was to examine achievement gains of elementary students over a five-year period of time. This analysis identified predictors at the student, classroom, and grade level and analyzed them for their impact on academic achievement as measured by gain scores and scale scores. In particular, various aspects of mobility including type, timing, and reason for transfers were examined.
