Replication data for: Do Schools Matter for High Math Achievement? Evidence from the American Mathematics Competitions

Glenn Ellison & Ashley Swanson
This paper uses data from the American Mathematics Competitions to examine the rates at which different high schools produce high-achieving math students. There are large differences in the frequency with which students from seemingly similar schools reach high achievement levels. The distribution of unexplained school effects includes a thick tail of schools that produce many more high-achieving students than is typical. Several additional analyses suggest that the differences are not primarily due to unobserved differences...
