Meyer, Robert; Pier, Libby; Mader, Jordan; Christian, Michal; Rice, Andrew; Loeb, Susanna; Fricke, Hans; Hough, Heather – Policy Analysis for California Education, PACE, 2019
This brief applies value-added models to student surveys in the CORE Districts to explore whether social-emotional learning (SEL) surveys can be used to measure effective classroom-level supports for SEL. The authors find that classrooms differ in their effect on students' growth in self-reported SEL--even after accounting for school-level…

Meyer, Robert; Pier, Libby; Mader, Jordan; Christian, Michal; Rice, Andrew; Loeb, Susanna; Fricke, Hans; Hough, Heather – Policy Analysis for California Education, PACE, 2019
Teachers play a critical role in establishing classroom and school environments that contribute to students' social and emotional development. This paper explores whether we can estimate a classroom-level measure of student growth in SEL by applying value-added models to students' [social-emotional learning] SEL. We analyze data from the 2016 and…

Claro, Susana; Loeb, Susanna – Policy Analysis for California Education, PACE, 2019
Existing research on self-management skills shows that measures of self-management predict student success. However, these conclusions are based on small samples or narrowly defined self-management measures. Using a rich longitudinal dataset of 221,840 fourth through seventh grade students, this paper describes self-management gaps across student…

Tyler, Burr; Britton, Ted; Iveland, Ashley; Nguyen, Kimberly; Hipps, Jerry – WestEd, 2018
The Next Generation Science Standards (NGSS) impact students in substantive ways. These standards move beyond textbooks to emphasize hands-on inquiry focused on real-world phenomena -- making students, rather than teachers, the primary actors in the NGSS science classroom. The six-year NGSS Early Implementers Initiative has supported a group of…
