Wind, Stefanie A.; Alemdar, Meltem; Lingle, Jeremy A.; Moore, Roxanne; Asilkalkan, Abdullah – International Journal of STEM Education, 2019
Typical approaches to assessing students' understanding of the engineering design process (EDP) include performance assessments that are time-consuming to score. It is also possible to use multiple-choice (MC) items to assess the EDP, but researchers and practitioners often view the diagnostic value of this assessment format as limited. However,…

Waber, Deborah P.; Boiselle, Ellen C.; Forbes, Peter W.; Girard, Jonathan M.; Sideridis, Georgios D. – Journal of Learning Disabilities, 2019
Learning problems (LP) can have wider implications than the academic deficits per se. The goal of the present series of studies was to develop a reliable and valid quality-of-life measure targeted to children and adolescents with LP. In Study 1, using a 35-item questionnaire, we surveyed 151 parents/guardians of children referred for assessment of…

Erbeli, Florina; Hart, Sara A.; Taylor, Jeanette – Journal of Learning Disabilities, 2019
A risk to develop a learning disability has been shown to run in families. Having a positive family history of learning disability seems to account for mean differences in achievement outcomes (reading, math) in that children with a positive family history score significantly lower compared to their peers with no such family history. However, the…

Kim, Minjung; Hsu, Hsien-Yuan – Journal of Educational and Behavioral Statistics, 2019
Given the natural hierarchical structure in school-setting data, multilevel modeling (MLM) has been widely employed in education research using a number of different statistical software packages. The purpose of this article is to review a recent feature of Stat-JR, the statistical analysis assistants (SAAs) embedded in Stat-JR (Version 1.0.5),…

Buelin, Jennifer; Ernst, Jeremy V.; Clark, Aaron C.; Kelly, Daniel P.; DeLuca, V. William – Technology and Engineering Teacher, 2019
Assessments are generally categorized as being either formative or summative. Summative assessment takes place periodically through the school term as well as at the end and typically takes the form of formal tests and high-stakes quizzes. Summative assessment tends to be used for purposes of assigning grades and for evaluating the effectiveness…

Spencer, Trina D.; Petersen, Douglas B.; Restrepo, M. Adelaida; Thompson, Marilyn; Gutierrez Arvizu, Maria Nelly – Topics in Early Childhood Special Education, 2019
Standards of academic performance place a high demand on students' English language. To help Spanish-speaking preschoolers who are developing English as a second language meet these demands, researchers recommend strengthening their first language to facilitate development of their second language. Head Start teachers and research assistants…

Fisher, Larry B.; Spooner, Fred; Algozzine, Bob; Anderson, Kelly M.; Brosh, Chelsi R.; Robertson, Colleen E. – Journal of Special Education, 2019
Conducting and supporting scientifically valid research activities and implementing evidence-based practices have driven recent hopes and efforts to achieve better outcomes for all students. In the context of ongoing internal review and continuous improvement, we were interested in how this evolution was reflected in empirical studies published in…

Daily, Shay M.; Mann, Michael J.; Kristjansson, Alfgeir L.; Smith, Megan L.; Zullig, Keith J. – Journal of School Health, 2019
Background: Emergent evidence suggests a positive school climate may be a promising population-level intervention to promote academic achievement and student well-being. However, researchers have called for expanding the school climate evidence-base to better describe how the construct is associated with student outcomes. The purpose of this study…

Naslund, Karlerik; Ponomariov, Branco – Management in Education, 2019
Using data on charter and public school districts in Texas, we test the hypothesis that the labor practices in charter schools, in particular their ability to easily dismiss poorly performing teachers, diminishes the negative effect of teacher turnover on student achievement and graduation rates in comparison to public schools. We find some…

Lewine, Richard; Warnecke, Ashlee; Davis, Darlene; Sommers, Alison; Manley, Kayla; Caleb, Ben – International Journal for the Scholarship of Teaching and Learning, 2019
Individuals entering college from disadvantaged economic backgrounds often face multiple obstacles to successful academic performance. Nonetheless, many such students are successful. In this study, we explore the personal characteristics of students from poverty who do well academically in comparison to their economic peers who were less…

Cruz, Jasmine M.; Wilson, Aaron T.; Wang, Xiaohui – International Journal of Research in Education and Science, 2019
Mathematical dispositions (MD) and self-efficacy for teaching mathematics (SEFTM) are important elements of teachers? beliefs that significantly influence their behaviors and educational practices in the classroom. This study looked at relationships between pre-service teachers? (PSTs) MD and their SEFTM in connection with other descriptors…

Hatch, Thomas; Roegman, Rachel; Allen, David – Phi Delta Kappan, 2019
Thomas Hatch, Rachel Roegman, and David Allen draw on examples from three districts in New Jersey -- one of the most segregated states in the United States for Black and Latinx students -- to present a multidimensional approach to creating equitable learning experiences. This approach begins with a focus on instruction but also takes into account…

Havis, Leanne R. – International Journal for the Scholarship of Teaching and Learning, 2019
This paper introduces a new integrated post-exam assessment model known as the exam autopsy. Grounded in metacognitive principles of reflective practice, students are provided with three sources of evaluative insight (from self, instructor, and peer) as they seek to analyze the root cause of their exam performance and formulate an action plan for…
