Kelly, Matthew Gardner – AERA Open, 2019
In this article, I discuss the promise of geospatial techniques for education policy research and how increased attention to the historical context of spatial data can enhance that work. While scholarship utilizing geographic information systems has added considerable breadth to our understanding of education policy, recent geospatial studies in…

The present study employs a geospatial analytical approach to studying the evenness-clustering and isolation-exposure dimensions of segregation in the context of the St. Louis, Missouri, metropolitan region. In contrast to global indicators of segregation, this approach focuses on the evenness and isolation dimensions at the local level to…

As the costs of dropping out of college continue to rise, instructor-student relationships may be a critical yet underexplored avenue for improving college student outcomes. The present study attempts to…

School choice research has provided some initial understandings of how parents choose schools. Parents' school options are bounded to differentiated choice sets--the menu of school options that parents construct when making school selections. The geographical location where families live and schools are located and families' race and class…

Bassok, Daphna; Engel, Mimi – AERA Open, 2019
This "AERA Open" special topic takes stock of the current knowledge about scaled-up early childhood education (ECE) programs. Rapidly rising ECE participation rates in recent decades have coincided with wide variability in the types of programming available for young children. This expansion makes understanding heterogeneity in effects…

Martschenko, Daphne; Trejo, Sam; Domingue, Benjamin W. – AERA Open, 2019
Driven by our recent mapping of the human genome, genetics research is increasingly prominent and beginning to reintersect with education research. We describe previous intersections of these fields, focusing on the ways that they were harmful. We then discuss novel features of genetics research in the current era, with an emphasis on…

Schudde, Lauren; Keisler, Katherine – AERA Open, 2019
More than half of community college students fail to meet college-readiness standards in math. Developmental education (dev-ed) aims to help students acquire the knowledge and skills to succeed in college-level math but is plagued with low rates of advancement. We examined the impact of a model that accelerates developmental math coursework so…

Kohl, Katharina; Willard, Jessica A.; Agache, Alexandru; Bihler, Lilly-Marlen; Leyendecker, Birgit – AERA Open, 2019
We examined independent and interactive links among three central characteristics of children's experiences in early childhood education and care and the German receptive vocabulary of single language learners and dual language learners (DLLs). We allowed for possible differential effects depending on children's language background. Our sample…

Finch, Jenna E.; Garcia, Elisa B.; Sulik, Michael J.; Obradovic, Jelena – AERA Open, 2019
Students' executive functions (EFs) are linked to school success. Although school-age children spend much of their time interacting with peers, few studies have explored how children's classmates may promote EF development in elementary school. In this study, we test whether mean levels and variability in classmates' EF skills are associated with…

Hart, Cassandra M. D.; Berger, Dan; Jacob, Brian; Loeb, Susanna; Hill, Michael – AERA Open, 2019
This article uses fixed effects models to estimate differences in contemporaneous and downstream academic outcomes for students who take courses virtually and face-to-face--both for initial attempts and for credit recovery. We find that while contemporaneous outcomes are positive for virtual students in both settings, downstream outcomes vary by…

McBee, Matthew T.; Makel, Matthew C. – AERA Open, 2019
Educational psychology is replete with verbal or qualitative definitions through which students can be considered members of categories, such as learning disabled, autistic, or gifted. These conceptions carry quantitative implications regarding the incidence rates of the phenomena they describe. To be scientifically useful, such definitions should…

Wong, Simpson W. L.; Cheng, Rebecca Wing-yi; Chow, Bonnie Wing-Yin; Chung, Sandrine Man-Chi – AERA Open, 2019
Learning to read two scripts at a young age is a demanding task. This study aims to develop games for building fundamental code-related emergent literacy skills among biscriptal preschoolers. We developed five games and tested them on a sample of 102 Chinese kindergarteners. The participants were aged 4 to 5 years and were learning English as a…

Ganley, Colleen M.; Schoen, Robert C.; LaVenia, Mark; Tazaz, Amanda M. – AERA Open, 2019
Past research indicates that teacher math anxiety is related to student outcomes and can be decreased through intervention. However, there is little research on this topic, partially due to a lack of math anxiety measures validated for use with practicing teachers. In this study of 399 elementary school teachers, we report on the construct…
