The evaluation should focus on determining:
(a) overall effectiveness in helping students pass the WASL;
(b) relative effectiveness of different remedial strategies offered; and
(c) relative effectiveness by student characteristics, including economic status, limited English proficiency, and ethnicity.
The office of the superintendent of public instruction shall provide all data necessary to conduct such analyses, and shall help coordinate data collection directly from districts administering the remedial programs as necessary.
