The PREPS Value-Added Analysis began in June 1997 and allows for valid comparisons of educational performance on the prior year’s state testing while considering the impact of differences in the socioeconomic background of the students considered in the research. The model is used in the PREPS value-added awards program and identifies these value-added performing schools among Mississippi public school districts who are members of PREPS. Schools deemed as adding value are those performing significantly better than other schools with comparable socioeconomic circumstances. 

PREPS follows the mission of actively providing research and evaluation for public schools. This year, school district ACT average test scores will be recognized along with 3rd– 8th grade English Language Arts and Math tests, English II, U.S. History, Biology I, and Algebra I tests.
