Leeds, Daniel M.; Mokher, Christine G. – Educational Evaluation and Policy Analysis, 2020
Over half of community college students place into developmental education, resulting in significant financial costs. We extend previous research demonstrating that using placement tests to assign students into developmental courses results in frequent misplacement. We use Florida data to explore the extent to which students are misplaced into…

Goldhaber, Dan; Long, Mark C.; Gratz, Trevor; Rooklyn, Jordan – Educational Evaluation and Policy Analysis, 2020
Indiana, Oklahoma, and Washington each have programs designed to address college enrollment gaps by offering a promise of state-based college financial aid to low-income middle school students in exchange for making a pledge to do well in high school, be a good citizen, not be convicted of a felony, and apply for financial aid to college. Using a…

Cohen, Julie; Loeb, Susanna; Miller, Luke C.; Wyckoff, James H. – Educational Evaluation and Policy Analysis, 2020
Ten years ago, the reform of teacher evaluation was touted as a mechanism to improve teacher effectiveness. In response, virtually every state redesigned its teacher evaluation system. Recently, a growing narrative suggests these reforms failed and should be abandoned. This response may be overly simplistic. We explore the variability of New York…

Lee, Helen; Sartain, Lauren – Educational Evaluation and Policy Analysis, 2020
In 2013, the Chicago Board of Education closed 47 elementary schools, directly affecting 13,000 students and 900 teachers. The closures created employment uncertainty for closed-school teachers, and this article investigates the labor market consequences for teachers. We employ a difference-in-differences approach that compares the exit rates of…

Enrolling in publicly funded early childhood education involves searching for programs, applying, verifying eligibility, and registering with the program. Many families do not complete this process, despite demonstrated interest. In this study, we assessed support for families as they verify eligibility as a means for increasing enrollment…

Russell, Jennifer Lin; Correnti, Richard; Stein, Mary Kay; Thomas, Ally; Bill, Victoria; Speranzo, Laurie – Educational Evaluation and Policy Analysis, 2020
Rigorous college-and-career readiness standards require significant shifts in typical mathematics instruction. Many schools and districts employ coaches to support instructional changes. Although there is evidence that coaching programs can support teaching improvement, research has yet to identify high-leverage coaching practices. In…

Spybrook, Jessaca; Zhang, Qi; Kelcey, Ben; Dong, Nianbo – Educational Evaluation and Policy Analysis, 2020
Over the past 15 years, we have seen an increase in the use of cluster randomized trials (CRTs) to test the efficacy of educational interventions. These studies are often designed with the goal of determining whether a program works, or answering the what works question. Recently, the goals of these studies expanded to include for whom and under…

Quinn, David M. – Educational Evaluation and Policy Analysis, 2020
A vast research literature documents racial bias in teachers' evaluations of students. Theory suggests bias may be larger on grading scales with vague or overly general criteria versus scales with clearly specified criteria, raising the possibility that well-designed grading policies may mitigate bias. This study offers relevant evidence through a…

Due to concerns about college affordability, in 2011, the Department of Education began producing two annual public lists of institutions with the highest change in tuition and fees and average net price within sector (top 5% and at least US$600 increase). This study investigates the effect of this low-stakes federal accountability tool on…

This is one of the first evaluations of a "growth-mindset" intervention at scale in a developing country.
