Graph showing pass rate of students of CUSRP and non-CUSRP teachers.

This graph shows the pass rate on the Science Regents exam for students of CUSRP teachers versus comparison teachers. Although the students of CUSRP teachers scored below those of the comparison teachers before the teachers' entry into the program, students of CUSRP teachers were outperforming those of comparison teachers by more than 10 points three and four years after their teachers entry into CUSRP.
