Loeb, Susanna; Christian, Michael S.; Hough, Heather; Meyer, Robert H.; Rice, Andrew B.; West, Martin R. – Journal of Educational and Behavioral Statistics, 2019
Measures of school-level growth in student outcomes are common tools for assessing the impacts of schools.

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…

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…

Earnest, Darrell – Cognition and Instruction, 2015
This article reports on students' problem-solving approaches across three representations--number lines, coordinate planes, and function graphs--the axes of which conventional mathematics treats in terms of consistent geometric and numeric coordinations. I consider these representations to be a part of a "hierarchical representational…
