Griggs, Marissa Swaim; Rimm-Kaufman, Sara E.; Merritt, Eileen G.; Patton, Christine L. – Society for Research on Educational Effectiveness, 2011
The current analyses address two primary research aims: 1) Does students' anxiety in mathematics and science predict their self-efficacy in each subject area? The authors hypothesized that students' anxiety in mathematics and science would be negatively associated with their self-efficacy in each area. 2) Does being in a "Responsive Classroom[R]"…

Brown, Judy A.; Greenfield, Daryl B.; Bell, Elizabeth; Juárez, Cheryl Lani; Myers, Ted; Nayfeld, Irena – Society for Research on Educational Effectiveness, 2013
"ECHOS: Early Childhood Hands-On Science" was developed at the Miami Science Museum as a comprehensive set of science lessons sequenced to lead children toward a deeper understanding of science content and the use of science process skills. The purpose of the research is to determine whether use of the "ECHOS" model will…

Portes, Pedro R.; Canche, Manuel S. Gonzalez; Stollberg, Robert – Society for Research on Educational Effectiveness, 2016
The Instructional Conversation (IC) is a complete classroom pedagogy that focuses on teaching through small-group dialogue with students allowing responsive instruction for each student. The IC is anchored by cognitive-developmental theory and by four decades of multi-method quasi-experimental studies. This study describes the first research of an…

Doabler, Christian; Clarke, Ben; Smolkowski, Keith; Fien, Hank; Baker, Scott – Society for Research on Educational Effectiveness, 2014
The adoption of the Common Core State Standards for Mathematics (CCSSM, 2010) in 46 states has raised the mathematical proficiency bar for U.S. students. The advent of these new standards is at a time when the body of empirical evidence on the negative consequences of early and persistent difficulties in mathematics is clear, compelling, and…

Shelley, Mack; Gonwa-Reeves, Christopher; Baenziger, Joan; Seefeld, Ashley; Hand, Brian; Therrien, William; Villanueva, Mary Grace; Taylor, Jonte – Society for Research on Educational Effectiveness, 2012
The purpose of this paper is to examine the impact of implementation of the Science Writing Heuristic (SWH) approach at 5th grade level in the public school system in Iowa as measured by Cornell Critical Thinking student test scores. This is part of a project that overall tests the efficacy of the SWH inquiry-based approach to build students'…

Taylor, Joseph; Kowalski, Susan; Getty, Stephen; Wilson, Christopher; Carlson, Janet – Society for Research on Educational Effectiveness, 2013
Effective instructional materials can be valuable interventions to improve student interest and achievement in science (National Research Council [NRC], 2007); yet, analyses indicate that many science instructional materials and curricula are fragmented, lack coherence, and are not carefully articulated through a sequence of grade levels (AAAS,…

Kaldon, Carolyn R.; Zoblotsky, Todd A. – Society for Research on Educational Effectiveness, 2014
Previous research has linked inquiry-based science instruction (i.e., science instruction that engages students in doing science rather than just learning about science) with greater gains in student learning than text-book based methods (Vanosdall, Klentschy, Hedges & Weisbaum, 2007; Banilower, 2007; Ferguson 2009; Bredderman, 1983;…

Cobern, William; Schuster, David; Adams, Betty – Society for Research on Educational Effectiveness, 2010
It is evident that "experientially-based" instruction and "active student engagement" are advantageous for effective science learning. However, "hands-on" and "minds-on" aspects can occur in both inquiry and direct science instruction, and convincing comparative evidence for the superiority of either mode…

Doabler, Christian; Baker, Scott K.; Smolkowski, Keith; Fien, Hank; Clarke, Ben; Cary, Mari Strand; Chard, David – Society for Research on Educational Effectiveness, 2011
The purpose of this 4-year efficacy trial, funded by IES under the Mathematics and Science Education topic, is to study the efficacy of a (Tier 1) core kindergarten math curriculum, "Early Learning in Mathematics" (ELM), when implemented under rigorous experimental conditions. In the first year of this study (2008-09), kindergarten…

Clark-Chiarelli, Nancy; Gropen, Jess; Fuccillo, Janna; Hoisington, Cindy – Society for Research on Educational Effectiveness, 2013
The need for a scientifically-literate American population has gained great prominence on the educational landscape of priorities over the past decade; young children will be increasingly exposed to the STEM fields and encouraged to excel in these areas. Professional development is key to assuring that early childhood teachers provide children…

Heppen, Jessica; Allensworth, Elaine; Walters, Kirk; Pareja, Amber Stitziel; Kurki, Anja; Nomi, Takako; Sorensen, Nicholas – Society for Research on Educational Effectiveness, 2012
This study is an efficacy trial funded by a grant from the Institute of Education Sciences (IES) National Center for Education Research (NCER). Fifteen CPS high schools are receiving funding to implement two Algebra I credit recovery courses during the summer sessions of 2011 and 2012--one online and one face-to-face (f2f). These courses allow…

Reeves, Christopher Gonwa; Fostvedt, Luke; Laugerman, Marcia; Baenziger, Joan; Shelley, Mack; Hand, Brian; Therrien, William – Society for Research on Educational Effectiveness, 2013
A key element in science education is establishing and maintaining linkages between teachers and researchers that can eventuate in enhanced student outcomes. Determining when and where a new educational program or intervention results in an enhanced outcome can be sensitive to many different forces that the researcher must carefully manage. The…

Dong, Nianbo; Reinke, Wendy M.; Herman, Keith C.; Bradshaw, Catherine P.; Murray, Desiree W. – Society for Research on Educational Effectiveness, 2015
Cluster randomized experiments are now widely used to examine intervention effects in prevention science. It is meaningful to use empirical benchmarks for interpreting effect size in prevention science. The effect size (i.e., the standardized mean difference, calculated by the difference of the means between the treatment and control groups,…

Gropen, Jess; Clark-Chiarelli, Nancy; Ehrlich, Stacy; Thieu, Yen – Society for Research on Educational Effectiveness, 2011
The authors are responding to the critical need for empirical evidence on effective strategies to improve preschool science instruction in preschool. By focusing on the Head Start community, "Foundations of Science Literacy (FSL)" is a credit-bearing professional development course that directly addresses the achievement gap in early…
