Wexler, Danielle – ProQuest LLC, 2019
In elementary school, many children struggle in learning how to read. Some of these struggling readers will be identified to receive special education services as a student with a reading disability (RD), while other students will not be identified to receive such services but will continue to have low reading achievement (LRA). Limited research,…

Gottfried, Michael A. – Teachers College Record, 2014
Background/Context: Researchers, policymakers, and practitioners undoubtedly concur that missing school deteriorates student outcomes. And yet, in evaluating the deleterious effects of missing in-school time, empirical research has almost exclusively focused on absences, and the scant amount of empirical literature on tardiness has focused on…

Hong, Guanglei; Corter, Carl; Hong, Yihua; Pelletier, Janette – Educational Evaluation and Policy Analysis, 2012
This study challenges the belief that homogeneous ability grouping benefits high-ability students in cognitive and social-emotional development at the expense of their low-ability peers. From a developmental point of view, the authors hypothesize that homogeneous grouping may improve the learning behaviors and may benefit the literacy learning of…

Gottfried, Michael A. – Elementary School Journal, 2014
Recent federal, state, and district policies that have mainstreamed English language learner (ELL) students into general, English-only elementary school classrooms have raised questions among educational stakeholders about the widespread effects of these policies. Most research has focused on the outcomes of ELL students; almost nothing is known…

Engel, Mimi; Claessens, Amy; Watts, Tyler; Farkas, George – Educational Researcher, 2016
Analyzing data from two nationally representative kindergarten cohorts, we examine the mathematics content teachers cover in kindergarten. We expand upon prior research, finding that kindergarten teachers report emphasizing basic mathematics content. Although teachers reported increased coverage of advanced content between the 1998-1999 and…

Catsambis, Sophia; Mulkey, Lynn M.; Buttaro, Anthony, Jr.; Steelman, Lala Carr; Koch, Pamela Ray – Journal of Educational Research, 2012
The authors analyzed the Early Childhood Longitudinal Study-Kindergarten Cohort (ECLS-K) national data set to investigate gender differences in ability group placement in American kindergartens. They found that in kindergarten, within-class ability grouping was widely used for reading instruction, with boys being underrepresented in high-achieving…

Unlu, Fatih; Layzer, Carolyn; Clements, Douglas; Sarama, Julie; Cook, David – Society for Research on Educational Effectiveness, 2013
Many educational Randomized Controlled Trials (RCTs) collect baseline versions of outcome measures (pretests) to be used in the estimation of impacts at posttest. Although pretest measures are not necessary for unbiased impact estimates in well executed experimental studies, using them increases the precision of impact estimates and reduces sample…

Mattison, Amira; Raffaele Mendez, Linda M.; Dedrick, Robert; Dickinson, Sarah; Wingate, Emily; Hanks, Camille – Psychology in the Schools, 2018
Our goals in this study were to examine (a) the degree to which teacher perceptions of children's behavior in kindergarten (averaged across fall and spring for each child) predict retention by Grade 5 and (b) whether these relationships are moderated by student race, gender, or socioeconomic status (SES). Data from the Early Childhood Longitudinal…

Dumas, Denis G.; McNeish, Daniel M. – Educational Researcher, 2017
Single-timepoint educational measurement practices are capable of assessing student ability at the time of testing but are not designed to be informative of student capacity for developing in any particular academic domain, despite commonly being used in such a manner. For this reason, such measurement practice systematically underestimates the…
