CERVERA GOMEZ, Luis Ernesto; LIZARRAGA BUSTAMANTE, Gilberto Martín  and  SANCHEZ GUILLEN, Claudia Paola. Spatial Analysis of the National Evaluation of Academic Achievement in Scholar Centers at the Municipality of Juarez, Chihuahua. REDIE [online]. 2008, vol.10, n.1, pp.1-23. ISSN 1607-4041.

This research was focused on analyzing the results of the first National Assessment of Academic Achievement for Scholar Centers (ENLACE; acronym in Spanish) applied during the year 2006 in the Municipality of Juarez (State of Chihuahua, Mexico). In order to conduct the spatial analysis a geographical information system (GIS) was used to make a georeferenced database were all variables were connected to a point representing a school. Results of the examinations expressed as deficient, elemental, good en excellent were spatially distributed over the urban area of Ciudad Juárez. Apparently there is a high spatial correlation between ENLACE's results with the socioeconomic level of people. In this way results going from good to excellent were spatially located over the sectors more developed of the city. Poor results going from Insufficient to Elemental were spatially located at places with higher deficits of infrastructure and low socioeconomic levels.

Keywords : High-stakes test; academic achievement; schools; geographical information system.
