The purpose of this research study was to quantitatively measure the effectiveness of same-gender schools on middle school students' mathematics and reading achievement for 1 metropolitan school system located in the State of Georgia. This study examined the aggregate Criterion-Referenced Competency Test (CRCT) reading and mathematics performance of 6th- and 7th-grade students who either attended 1 of 2 same-gender schools or 1 of 3 coeducational schools. This study employed a quasi-experimental (interrupted time-series) research design using a z-test. Two research questions addressed in this study were (a) Will a comparison of the CRCT reading and mathematics scores of the district's middle school students (i.e., Grades 6 and 7) evidence a statistically significant difference between the scores of students who attended a same-gender school and those students who did not attend a same-gender school? and (b) Will a comparison of the yearly CRCT reading and mathematics scores of the district's middle school students (i.e., Grades 6 through 7) who attended same-gender schools evidence a statistically significant difference from the inception of the program in 2007 through 2009? The findings of this study indicate a positive correlation between the use of same-gender educational structures and student achievement in reading and math scores on the CRCT. The results of the study indicate the need for further research and educational practices to contribute to the limited body of knowledge on closing the achievement gap in middle school educationThe purpose of this research study was to quantitatively measure the effectiveness of same-gender schools on middle school studentsa#39; mathematics and reading achievement for 1 metropolitan school system located in the State of Georgia.
