Wei, Xin; Yu, Jennifer; Shattuck, Paul; Blackorby, Jose – Grantee Submission, 2017
Previous studies suggest that individuals with an Autism Spectrum Disorder (ASD) are more likely than other disability groups and the general population to gravitate toward science, technology, engineering, and mathematics (STEM) fields. However, the field knows little about which factors influenced the STEM pipeline between high school and…

Wei, Xin; Yu, Jennifer W.; Shattuck, Paul; Blackorby, Jose – Focus on Autism and Other Developmental Disabilities, 2017
Previous studies suggest that individuals with an autism spectrum disorder (ASD) are more likely than other disability groups and the general population to gravitate toward science, technology, engineering, and mathematics (STEM) fields. However, the field knows little about which factors influence the STEM pipeline between high school and…

Minaya, Veronica – Community College Research Center, Teachers College, Columbia University, 2021
Math is an integral subject in nearly all STEM disciplines, and early exposure to advanced math coursework may encourage high school students to enter and persist in STEM fields in college. This report examines whether taking college algebra through dual enrollment affects high school graduation, college enrollment, and early STEM outcomes. I use…

Loveless, Tom – Brookings Institution, 2013
This is the twelfth edition of the Brown Center Report. Part I examines the latest data from state, national, or international assessments. This year the focus is on the latest results from the Progress in International Reading Literacy Study (PIRLS) and Trends in International Math and Science Study (TIMSS) released in December, 2012. Part I also…

Howard, Lori A.; Potts, Elizabeth A.; Linz, Ed – Science Teacher, 2013
As the federal government encourages all students to attempt advanced math and science courses, more students with disabilities are enrolling in Advanced Placement (AP) science classes. AP science teachers can better serve these students by understanding the various types of disabilities (whether physical, learning, emotional, or behavioral),…

Gottfried, Michael; Estrada, Fernando; Sublett, Cameron – High School Journal, 2015
Sexual minority students such as those identifying as lesbian, gay, or bisexual, as well as those identifying with emerging self-labels (e.g., queer) face a host of risk factors in high school that can potentially compromise educational excellence, particularly in rigorous academic disciplines. The current study advances the area of diversity…

Raphael, Jacqueline; Sage, Nicole; Ishimaru, Ann – Regional Educational Laboratory Northwest, 2012
Disaggregating the data across four school variables--size, locale, racial/ethnic minority population, and population eligible for free or reduced-price lunch--this study examines the extent to which Oregon grade 9-12 students enrolled in high school math courses during 2006/07 and 2007/08 would not have been on track to graduate had the new…

Olszewski-Kubilius, Paula; Steenbergen-Hu, Saiying; Thomson, Dana; Rosen, Rhoda – Gifted Child Quarterly, 2017
This longitudinal study examined the outcomes of Project Excite on reducing minority students' achievement gaps in STEM over 14 years. Project Excite was designed to provide intensive supplemental enrichment and accelerated programming for high-potential, underrepresented minority students from third through eighth grades to better prepare them…

Plasman, Jay S.; Gottfried, Michael; Sublett, Cameron – Career and Technical Education Research, 2017
Career and technical education (CTE) has become a key focus of stakeholders across the political spectrum. It has been shown to be an effective means of promoting many desired outcomes, including increased chances of high school graduation, improved opportunities of enrolling in advanced math and science courses, and increased earnings after high…

What Works Clearinghouse, 2016
"Saxon Math" is a core curriculum for students in grades K-12 that uses an incremental approach to instruction and assessment. This approach limits the amount of new math content delivered to students each day and allows time for daily practice. New concepts are introduced gradually and integrated with previously introduced content so…

Nagle, Katherine; Newman, Lynn A.; Shaver, Debra M.; Marschark, Marc – Grantee Submission, 2016
As schools work to raise the number of students who leave secondary school ready for college and career by increasing both the number of academic courses required and the overall rigor of the curriculum, they must ensure that students with disabilities, including those who are deaf or hard of hearing (DHH), are not left behind. They can do this by…

Goldhaber, Dan; Theobald, Roddy; Fumia, Danielle – National Center for Analysis of Longitudinal Data in Education Research (CALDER), 2018
We use panel data in Washington State to study the extent to which teacher assignments between fourth and eighth grade explain gaps between advantaged and disadvantaged students--as defined by underrepresented minority status (URM) and eligibility for free or reduced price lunch (FRL)--in their eighth grade math test scores and high school course…

Krawec, Jennifer; Steinberg, Marissa – Learning Disabilities: A Multidisciplinary Journal, 2019
Opportunities for students to learn mathematics through innovative, authentic experiences in an inquiry-based instructional approach have become much more common for students in regular and advanced math classes. Yet, the same cannot be said for students with learning disabilities. One of the primary reasons is that key tenets of the inquiry…

Goldhaber, Dan; Gratz, Trevor; Theobald, Roddy – Center for Education Data & Research, 2016
We investigate the relationship between teacher licensure test scores and student test achievement and high school course-taking. We focus on three subject/grade combinations-- middle school math, ninth-grade algebra and geometry, and ninth-grade biology--and find evidence that a teacher's basic skills test scores are modestly predictive of…
