Using data with detailed instructor employment information from a state college system, this study examines disciplinary variations in the characteristics and effects of non-tenure-track faculty hired through temporary and long-term employment. We identify substantial differences in demographic and employment characteristics between the two types…

Gurantz, Oded; Odle, Taylor K. – Educational Evaluation and Policy Analysis, 2022
We replicate and extend prior work on Florida's Bright Futures merit aid scholarship to consider its effect on college enrollment and degree completion. We estimate causal impacts using a regression discontinuity design to exploit SAT thresholds that strongly determine eligibility. We find no positive impacts on attendance or attainment, and…

Robinson, Carly D.; Chande, Raj; Burgess, Simon; Rogers, Todd – Educational Evaluation and Policy Analysis, 2022
Many educational interventions encourage parents to engage in their child's education as if parental time and attention is limitless. Sadly, though, it is not. Successfully encouraging certain parental investments may crowd out other productive behaviors. A randomized field experiment (N = 2,212) assessed the impact of an intervention in which…

Mantil, Ann – Educational Evaluation and Policy Analysis, 2022
Interdistrict desegregation programs, which provide opportunities for urban children of color to attend suburban schools, are a potential means of addressing persistent racial inequalities in educational opportunities and outcomes. These voluntary programs offer a test of whether nonresident students can leverage the resources and social capital…

Houston, David M.; Henderson, Michael; Peterson, Paul E.; West, Martin R. – Educational Evaluation and Policy Analysis, 2022
States and districts are increasingly incorporating measures of achievement growth into their school accountability systems, but there is little research on how these changes affect the public's perceptions of school quality. We conduct a nationally representative online survey experiment to identify the effects of providing participants with…

Gottfried, Michael; Kirksey, J. Jacob; Fletcher, Tina L. – Educational Evaluation and Policy Analysis, 2022
Teachers of color increase school success for students of color. Yet, little attention has been paid to whether school attendance behaviors also increase from same race and ethnicity matches. To address this, our study used administrative data provided by a California high school district for the school years 2014 to 2018. We explored student…

Doss, Christopher; Zaber, Melanie A.; Master, Benjamin K.; Gates, Susan M.; Hamilton, Laura S. – Educational Evaluation and Policy Analysis, 2022
Principals are the second-largest school-based contributor to student achievement. Interventions focused early in the "pipeline" for identifying and developing effective principals might be a promising strategy for promoting principal effectiveness, yet no prior research has examined measures of principal performance during preservice…

Krieg, John M.; Goldhaber, Dan; Theobald, Roddy – Educational Evaluation and Policy Analysis, 2022
We use a novel database of student teaching placements in Washington State to investigate teachers' transitions from student teaching classrooms to first job classrooms and the implications for student achievement. We find first-year teachers are more effective when they teach in the same or an adjacent grade, in the same school type, or in a…

Xu, Zeyu; Backes, Ben; Oliveira, Amanda; Goldhaber, Dan – Educational Evaluation and Policy Analysis, 2022
Kentucky's Targeted Interventions (TI) program is a statewide intervention intended to prepare non-college-ready high school students for college-level coursework. Using a difference-in-regression discontinuity design, we find that TI reduces the likelihood that students enroll in remedial courses by 8 to 10 percentage points in math. These…

Isenberg, Eric; Max, Jeffrey; Gleason, Philip; Deutsch, Jonah – Educational Evaluation and Policy Analysis, 2022
We examine access to effective teachers for low-income students in 26 geographically dispersed school districts over a 5-year period. We measure teacher effectiveness using a value-added model that accounts for measurement error in prior test scores and peer effects. Differences between the average value added of teachers of high- and low-income…

Barrett, Nathan; Carlson, Deven; Harris, Douglas N.; Lincove, Jane Arnold – Educational Evaluation and Policy Analysis, 2022
Theories of market-based school reform suggest that teacher labor markets may be inefficient because schools lack autonomy to incentivize performance in hiring, retention, and compensation. We test this empirically by comparing teacher exits in the deregulated market of New Orleans with neighboring traditional school districts. We find that the…

Hemelt, Steven W.; Swiderski, Tom – Educational Evaluation and Policy Analysis, 2022
We analyze the rollout of a Statewide Dual-Credit (SDC) program intended to expand access to college-level courses during high school. We find that SDC increased early postsecondary course-taking among students in the middle of the achievement distribution, especially through courses in vocational subjects, without decreasing participation in…

Winters, Marcus A.; Shanks, Colin – Educational Evaluation and Policy Analysis, 2022
We exploit information about parental preference and a randomized component in the assignment of students to schools within a deferred acceptance (DA) mechanism to estimate the causal effect of enrolling in a charter school in Newark, New Jersey, on student test scores. The estimates incorporate variation from students attending about 70% of the…

Miller, Cynthia; Weiss, Michael J. – Educational Evaluation and Policy Analysis, 2022
This paper presents new estimates of the effects of the City University of New York's (CUNY's) Accelerated Study in Associate Programs (ASAP) model, evaluated using a randomized controlled trial first in New York and later through a replication in Ohio. It presents longer-term effects of CUNY ASAP in New York, showing that the program's effect on…

Master, Benjamin K.; Schwartz, Heather; Unlu, Fatih; Schweig, Jonathan; Mariano, Louis T.; Coe, Jessie; Wang, Elaine Lin; Phillips, Brian; Berglund, Tiffany – Educational Evaluation and Policy Analysis, 2022
Principals are the second-largest school-based contributor to K-12 students' academic progress. However, there is little research evaluating whether efforts to develop principals' skills improve school effectiveness. We conducted randomized controlled trial studies of the impacts of a professional development program called the Executive…
