Kosh, Audra E.; Simpson, Mary Ann; Bickel, Lisa; Kellogg, Mark; Sanford-Moore, Ellie – Educational Measurement: Issues and Practice, 2019
Automatic item generation (AIG)--a means of leveraging technology to create large quantities of items--requires a minimum number of items to offset the sizable upfront investment (i.e., model development and technology deployment) in order to achieve cost savings. In this cost-benefit analysis, we estimated the cost of each step of AIG and manual…

Žanko, Žana; Mladenovic, Monika; Boljat, Ivica – Education and Information Technologies, 2019
There are known misconceptions about variables which are mostly the same since the first studies since more than 30 years ago. Consciousness about the misconceptions in programming can be crucial for teaching and learning programming for novices because, if we are aware of them, maybe we can minimise or even prevent them. Researchers mostly…

Behavior-specific praise (BSP) is a core component of many positive behavioral interventions and supports at each level of prevention, often used to increase student academic outcomes and/or reduce inappropriate behavior. We conducted a systematic literature review to explore this low-intensity, teacher-delivered strategy, applying Council for…

Grissom, Jason A.; Bartanen, Brendan – American Educational Research Journal, 2019
Studies link principal effectiveness to lower average rates of teacher turnover. However, principals need not target retention efforts equally to all teachers. Instead, strong principals may seek to strategically influence the composition of their school's teaching force by retaining high performers and not retaining lower performers. We…

MyiLOGS is compared to the Classroom Strategies Assessment System--Observer Form (CSAS-O;…

Marks, Denton; Welsch, David M. – Journal of School Choice, 2019
Over the past two decades homeschooling has become increasingly popular, but this educational alternative has lacked rigorous empirical evaluation because of data limitations.

The development of competencies known as 21st-century skills are garnering increasing attention as a means of improving teacher instructional quality.

Haley, Keri; Allsopp, David – Preventing School Failure, 2019
Parents and educators are expected under IDEIA to work together on educational decision-making for students with disabilities. While collegial relationships in this process are intended, partnerships are not always formed because both parties can struggle to understand each other's perspective. Parents may hold their view, while educators may have…

Adamson, Reesha M.; McKenna, John William; Mitchell, Barbara – Preventing School Failure, 2019
The use of a tiered approach provides a structured format for increasing consistency across educators to address the diversity of student needs within a school. The same logic of providing a tiered continuum of evidence-based increasingly intensive supports that is characteristic of schoolwide multi-tiered systems of support (MTSS) can be adapted…
