Researchers and practitioners sometimes presume that using a previously "validated" instrument will produce "valid" scores; however, contemporary views of validity suggest that there are many reasons this assumption can be faulty. In order to demonstrate just some of the problems with this view, and to support comparisons of…

Effective classroom management is critical for student and teacher success. Because teachers receive limited preservice preparation and in-service support in classroom management, educational leaders (e.g., school psychologists, behavior coaches, mentor teachers, and administrators) need efficient and effective tools to identify teachers'…

Pietsch, Marcus; Tulowitzki, Pierre; Hartig, Johannes – School Effectiveness and School Improvement, 2020
There is a large base of empirical evidence that points to the importance of school leadership with regard to functional schools and student achievement. Based on this importance, a change of principal can be a critical event for a school. This study seeks to answer the question if principal turnover is associated with a change in a school's…

Classroom observations have been increasingly used for teacher evaluations, and it is important to examine the measurement quality and the use of observation ratings. When a teacher is observed in multiple classrooms, his or her observation ratings may vary across classrooms. In that case, using ratings from one classroom per teacher may not be…

Aung, Arkar Min; Ramakrishnan, Anand; Whitehill, Jacob R. – International Educational Data Mining Society, 2018
We develop an end-to-end neural network-based computer vision system to automatically identify "where" each person within a 2-D image of a school classroom is looking ("gaze following"), as well as "who" she/he is looking at. Automatic gaze following could help facilitate data-mining of large datasets of…
