McCormick, Meghan P.; Cappella, Elise; O'Connor, Erin E.; Hill, Jennifer; McClowry, Sandee G. – Society for Research on Educational Effectiveness, 2016
A wide and rich body of literature has identified the family as the key context influencing children's development. In response, school districts and policymakers have sought to engage parents in children's learning, particularly low-income families. Meta-analyses conclude that efforts to engage low-income parents do improve students' academic…

Clements, Douglas H.; Sarama, Julie; Layzer, Carolyn; Unlu, Fatih; Wolfe, Christopher B.; Spitler, Mary Elaine; Weiss, Daniel – Society for Research on Educational Effectiveness, 2016
Although some research-based educational practices have shown promise, many fail to be implemented at a scale that affects more than a small proportion of children. Further, research on interventions for young children includes mixed results, with most documenting "fadeout" of effects after several years, but some showing lasting…

Duncan, Greg J.; Jenkins, Jade M.; Watts, Tyler W.; Magnuson, Katherine; Clements, Douglas; Sarama, Julie; Wolfe, Christopher B.; Spitler, Mary Elaine – Society for Research on Educational Effectiveness, 2015
A substantial literature documents the benefits of early childhood education and formal preschool experiences on children's school readiness, with low-income and otherwise disadvantaged children benefitting the most from these programs. However, these academic benefits often fade out as children age, and most disappear by the end of kindergarten…

Mokrova, Irina; Broekhuizen, Martine; Burchinal, Margaret – Society for Research on Educational Effectiveness, 2015
A growing body of research has shown that high quality early care and education (ECE) is positively related to the development of children's social and academic skills (e.g., Barnett, 2011; Lamb & Ahnert, 2006; NICHD ECCRN, 2006). There is evidence that high quality ECE experiences can improve children's levels of social adjustment (Bierman et…

Reinke, Wendy M.; Herman, Keith C.; Dong, Nianbo – Society for Research on Educational Effectiveness, 2014
A significant number of children in schools have mental health problems (World Health Organization, 2004). If children receive any type of mental health services, the vast majority receive these supports at school (Rones & Hoagwood, 2000). Mental health needs in children often manifest as emotional dysregulation, social incompetence, and…

May, Henry – Society for Research on Educational Effectiveness, 2014
Interest in variation in program impacts--How big is it? What might explain it?--has inspired recent work on the analysis of data from multi-site experiments. One critical aspect of this problem involves the use of random or fixed effect estimates to visualize the distribution of impact estimates across a sample of sites. Unfortunately, unless the…
