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…

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…

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…

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…

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.…

Rogers, Todd; Feller, Avi – Society for Research on Educational Effectiveness, 2016
School attendance is a robust predictor of course performance, and it is consistently the strongest predictor of high school dropout, even more so than suspensions and test scores. Focusing on getting students to school is an essential part of decreasing high school dropout rates. What is concerning is that up to 20% of students miss essentially a…

Johnston, Jamie – Society for Research on Educational Effectiveness, 2016
Massive Open Online Courses (MOOCs) are a relatively new, low-cost resource that hold potential for improving learning in developing nations where resources are constrained and teacher expertise can be limited. However, little information currently exists about the effectiveness of leveraging MOOCs as a vehicle for teacher training. The aim of…

Fancsali, Cheri; Abe, Yasuyo; Pyatigorsky, Mikhail – Society for Research on Educational Effectiveness, 2016
Nationally, two-thirds of high school students are unable to read and comprehend complex academic materials, think critically about texts, and synthesize information from multiple sources, or communicate what they have learned. Without a substantial change in their academic literacy, U.S. high school students face continued academic problems in…

Edmunds, Julie A. – Society for Research on Educational Effectiveness, 2016
Given the positive impacts of the small, stand-alone early college model and the desire to provide those benefits to more students, organizations have begun efforts to scale up the early college model in a variety of settings. These efforts have been supported by the federal government, particularly by the Investing in Innovation (i3) program.…

Porter, Kristin E.; Balu, Rekha; Gunton, Brad; Pestronk, Jefferson; Cohen, Allison – Society for Research on Educational Effectiveness, 2016
With the advent of data systems that allow for frequent or even real-time student data updates, and recognition that high school students often can move from being on-track to graduation to off-track in a matter of weeks, indicator analysis alone may not provide a complete picture to guide school leaders' actions. The authors of this paper suggest…

Hinojosa, T.; Bos, J.; O'Brien, B.; Park, S.; Liu, F.; Jerabek, A. – Society for Research on Educational Effectiveness, 2016
Students beginning high school commonly experience increased stress and behavior problems alongside declines in grades, attendance, interest in school, and perceptions of academic competence and self-esteem (Alvidrez & Weinstein, 1993; Reyes et al., 2000). Moreover, research indicates that, relative to students who graduate from high school,…

Warkentien, Siri – Society for Research on Educational Effectiveness, 2016
The "Brown v. Board of Education" decision ruled racial school segregation unconstitutional over 60 years ago. Although widespread desegregation followed initially, the past several decades have seen increasing resegregation, as evidenced by a decreasing proportion of black students in the average white students' schools and an…
