Within initial teacher education, the…

Smith, Jonathan – Education Finance and Policy, 2018
To demonstrate the sequential nature of the college application process, in this paper I analyze the evolution of applications among high-achieving low-income students through data on the exact timing of SAT score sends. I describe at what point students send scores to colleges and which score sends ultimately become applications, resulting in…

Ashraf, Rasha; Godbey, Jonathan M.; Shrikhande, Milind M.; Widman, Tracy A. – Journal of the Scholarship of Teaching and Learning, 2018
We examine whether college students' persistence in finding a suitable major field of study influences the likelihood of graduation. We find that students who make an effort to select a suitable major early in their college careers graduate in a more timely fashion. Although changing majors is associated with delayed graduation, struggling…

Xu, Di; Solanki, Sabrina; McPartlan, Peter; Sato, Brian – Educational Researcher, 2018
Extensive theoretical literature and qualitative evidence nominate learning communities as a promising strategy to improve persistence and success among at-risk populations, such as students who are academically underprepared for college-level coursework. Yet rigorous quantitative evidence on the impacts of these programs is limited. This paper…

McAlpin, Elizabeth; Shilane, David; Kalaycioglu, Selin – Journal of Computers in Mathematics and Science Teaching, 2018
Large foundational courses delivered in lecture halls are disadvantaged in eliciting participation from all students and maintaining engagement throughout the class session. We introduced a question-driven method facilitated by an audience response system, namely TopHat™, that allows the instructor to engage students in solving Calculus problems…
