Analysis of state achievement growth as measured by the National Assessment of Educational progress shows that accountability systems introduced during the 1990s had a clear positive impact on student achievement.

Moreover, the black-white gap appears to have been adversely impacted over the decade by increasing minority concentrations in the schools.
