Faria, Ann-Marie; Sorensen, Nicholas; Heppen, Jessica; Bowdon, Jill; Eisner, Ryan – Society for Research on Educational Effectiveness, 2018
The national high school graduation rate reached its highest level in U.S. history--82 percent--during the 2013-14 school year (Kena et al., 2016)--but dropout remains a persistent problem in the Midwest and nationally. Early warning systems that use research-based warning signs to identify students at risk of dropping out have emerged as one…

Sorensen, Nicholas; Oyserman, Daphna; Eisner, Ryan; Yoder, Nicholas; Horowitz, Eric – Society for Research on Educational Effectiveness, 2018
Nearly one in five Americans does not graduate from high school (U.S. Department of Education, 2017) and risk of dropout disproportionally affects economically disadvantaged, racial/ethnic minorities. Dropout occurs for many reasons but usually results from cumulative disengagement with school (Fine, 1991; Orfield et al., 2004). Identity-Based…

Wang, Haiwen; Means, Barbara; Young, Viki; House, Ann – Society for Research on Educational Effectiveness, 2018
Policymakers argue that only by enlarging the science, technology, engineering, and mathematics (STEM) pipeline in a way that attracts, supports, and sustains the participation of students from all kinds of backgrounds can the United States meet its needs for science and technology innovation, economic prosperity, and social well-being (National…

Gehring, William J.; Hsu, Julian; Ai, Wei – Society for Research on Educational Effectiveness, 2018
Under-prepared college students are at risk of dropping out (Bettinger & Long, 2005) and having lower academic achievement to their better-prepared peers. Yet they would likely benefit most from higher education (Jaegar & Page, 1996; Kane & Rouse, 1995), highlighting the need for institutional support. While developmental courses in…

Jitendra, Asha K.; Harwell, Michael R.; Karl, Stacy R.; Im, Soo-hyun; Slater, Susan C. – Society for Research on Educational Effectiveness, 2018
Ratio and proportional relationships, along with the interrelated topics of fractions, decimals, and percent provide a critical foundation for algebra (National Mathematics Advisory Panel, 2008). Solving even simple proportion problems is challenging for many children and adolescents. A small number of studies have examined the efficacy of…

Sorensen, Nicholas; Cade, Whitney; de la Torre, Marisa; Eisner, Ryan; Walters, Kirk; Rickles, Jordan – Society for Research on Educational Effectiveness, 2018
Enrollment in eighth-grade algebra doubled from the 1990s to 2012 (National Center for Education Statistics, 2013) as research demonstrated that Algebra I operates as a "gateway" to advanced mathematics courses in high school (Adelman, 2006), and that students who succeed in Algebra I in middle school have more success in mathematics…

Im, Soo-hyun; Jitendra, Asha K.; Harwell, Michael R.; Karl, Stacy R.; Slater, Susan C. – Society for Research on Educational Effectiveness, 2018
Ratio and proportional relationships, along with the interrelated topics of fractions,decimals, and percent, provide a critical foundation for algebra (National Mathematics Advisory Panel, 2008). Proportional reasoning, which not only requires understanding the concept of ratios and that two or more ratios are equal, also requires the ability to…

Cheung, Alan; Slavin, Robert E.; Lake, Cynthia; Kim, Elizabeth – Society for Research on Educational Effectiveness, 2016
Despite widespread recognition among policy makers, educational leaders, and the nation as a whole of the importance of science, engineering, and technology as drivers of the future of the country and society, the science achievement of America's students is mediocre at best, in comparison to that of international peers. On the 2012 PISA tests in…

Fahle, Erin – Society for Research on Educational Effectiveness, 2016
Research on gender achievement gaps shows they exist, and are largest in the tails of the distribution, starting as early as Kindergarten and persisting through eighth grade. In mathematics, studies find small average gender achievement gaps and larger systematically male-favoring gaps among the highest achieving students. This paper seeks to…

Cannata, Marisa; Redding, Christopher; Rubin, Mollie – Society for Research on Educational Effectiveness, 2016
The focus of the article is the process educators use to interpret data to turn it into usable knowledge (Honig & Coburn, 2008) while engaging in a continuous improvement process. The authors examine the types of evidence educators draw upon, its perceived relevance, and the social context in which the evidence is examined. Evidence includes…

Tipton, Elizabeth; Yeager, David; Iachan, Ronaldo – Society for Research on Educational Effectiveness, 2016
Questions regarding the generalizability of results from educational experiments have been at the forefront of methods development over the past five years. This work has focused on methods for estimating the effect of an intervention in a well-defined inference population (e.g., Tipton, 2013; O'Muircheartaigh and Hedges, 2014); methods for…

Fitzpatrick, Daniel; Schneider, Barbara – Society for Research on Educational Effectiveness, 2016
Students' college readiness has important links with their access to and success in postsecondary education. College readiness measures appear to be malleable based on high school counselors' work. Unfortunately, the research-to-date provides only minimal guidance for what high school counselors should actually do in order to help their students.…

Halpin, Peter F. – Society for Research on Educational Effectiveness, 2016
Recent research on multiple measures of teaching effectiveness has redefined the role of in-classroom observations in teacher evaluation systems. In particular, most states now mandate that teachers are observed on multiple occasions during the school year, and it is increasingly common that multiple raters are utilized across the different rating…
