Goodwin, Amanda P.; Cho, Sun-Joo; Reynolds, Dan; Brady, Katherine; Salas, Jorge – American Educational Research Journal, 2020
This study explores digital and paper reading processes and outcomes for 371 fifth to eighth graders completing a reading task similar to standardized testing. Results showed students highlighted and annotated more when reading the paper versus digital text. Also, reading on paper versus digitally was slightly supportive of reading comprehension…

Reardon, Sean F.; Fahle, Erin M.; Kalogrides, Demetra; Podolsky, Anne; Zárate, Rosalía C. – American Educational Research Journal, 2019
We estimate male-female test score gaps in math and English language arts (ELA) for nearly 10,000 U.S. school districts using state accountability data from third- through eighth-grade students in the 2008-2009 through 2015-2016 school years. We find that the average U.S. school district has no gender achievement gap in math, but there is a gap of…

Yarnell, Lisa M.; Bohrnstedt, George W. – American Educational Research Journal, 2018
This study examines student-teacher "racial match" for its association with Black student achievement. Multilevel structural equation modeling was used to analyze 2013 National Assessment for Educational Progress (NAEP) Grade 4 Reading Assessment data to examine interactions of teacher race and student race in their associations with…

Walkington, Candace; Clinton, Virginia; Shivraj, Pooja – American Educational Research Journal, 2018
The link between reading and mathematics achievement is well known, and an important question is whether readability factors in mathematics problems are differentially impacting student groups. Using 20 years of data from the National Assessment of Educational Progress and the Trends in International Mathematics and Science Study, we examine how…

Smith, Mark D. – American Educational Research Journal, 2017
Cognitive validity examines the relationship between what an assessment aims to measure and what it actually elicits from test takers. The present study examined whether multiple-choice items from the National Assessment of Educational Progress (NAEP) grade 12 U.S. history exam elicited the historical thinking processes they were designed to…

Llosa, Lorena; Lee, Okhee; Jiang, Feng; Haas, Alison; O'Connor, Corey; Van Booven, Christopher D.; Kieffer, Michael J. – American Educational Research Journal, 2016
The authors evaluated the effects of P-SELL, a science curricular and professional development intervention for fifth-grade students with a focus on English language learners (ELLs). Using a randomized controlled trial design with 33 treatment and 33 control schools across three school districts in one state, we found significant and meaningfully…

Slama, Rachel B. – American Educational Research Journal, 2014
Using eight waves of longitudinal data on a statewide kindergarten cohort of English learners (ELs), I examined ELs' tenure in language-learning programs and their academic performance following reclassification as fluent English proficient. I employed discrete-time survival analysis to estimate the average time to and grade of reclassification…

Reed, Douglas S. – American Educational Research Journal, 2009
Recent analyses of state-level proficiency standards under No Child Left Behind indicate that states' benchmarks for determining whether a child is proficient in reading and math are widely divergent. This article explores whether the capacity of states to employ different proficiency standards imposes different performance standards across…

Silver, Edward A.; Mesa, Vilma M.; Morris, Katherine A.; Star, Jon R.; Benken, Babette M. – American Educational Research Journal, 2009
The authors present an analysis of portfolio entries submitted by candidates seeking certification by the National Board for Professional Teaching Standards in the area of Early Adolescence/Mathematics. Analyses of mathematical features revealed that the tasks used in instruction included a range of mathematics topics but were not consistently…

Reardon, Sean F.; Galindo, Claudia – American Educational Research Journal, 2009
This article describes the developmental patterns of Hispanic-White math and reading achievement gaps in elementary school, paying attention to variation in these patterns among Hispanic subgroups. Compared to non-Hispanic White students, Hispanic students enter kindergarten with much lower average math and reading skills. The gaps narrow by…

Langer, Philip; And Others – American Educational Research Journal, 1984
This study investigated the changing achievement relationships among Black and White students based on ages at entry into first grade. The data indicated that, for both groups, the significantly higher achievement of the oldest students at age 9 disappeared by age 17. (Author/BW)

Davenport, Ernest C., Jr.; Davison, Mark L.; Kuang, Haijiang; Ding, Shuai; Kim, Se-Kang; Kwak, Nohoon – American Educational Research Journal, 1998
Data from the 1990 National Assessment of Educational Progress were used to study the number of Carnegie units earned by students in mathematics. Overall, gender and ethnic differences in total mathematics courses were small but ethnic differences relative to the type of course were large. Gender differences are discussed in light of college…

Peterson, Penelope L.; Fennema, Elizabeth – American Educational Research Journal, 1985
Classroom activities related to the mathematics achievement level of students in 36 fourth-grade mathematics classes were identified. Engagement in competitive mathematics activities, cooperative mathematics activities, social activities, and off-task behavior was consistently and differentially related to girls' versus boys' low-level and…

Walberg, Herbert J.; And Others – American Educational Research Journal, 1981
The science achievement scores of a large sample of 13-year-olds were regressed to test a psychological theory of educational productivity, and to explore the usefulness of the National Assessment of Educational Progress data for secondary analysis for policy purposes. (Author/GK)

Haertel, Geneva D.; And Others – American Educational Research Journal, 1981
Data from the 1976 NAEP Science Assessment were used to explore sex differences in science learning and its determinants with controls for ethnicity and parental socioeconomic status. No sex difference in science learning was found, but a sex-specific trend in science motivation was detected. (Author/GK)
