Park, Elizabeth S.; Ngo, Federick – Educational Evaluation and Policy Analysis, 2021
We use regression discontinuity design to examine the impact of placing into developmental math on science, technology, engineering, and mathematics (STEM) participation in community colleges and whether these relationships differ for underrepresented racially minoritized (URM), women, STEM-oriented, and STEM-aspiring students. Results show that…

With the rise in the availability of absenteeism data, it is clear that students are missing a staggering amount of school. Policymakers have focused efforts on identifying school programs that might reduce absenteeism. This study examined whether implementing the program "Breakfast After-the-Bell" (BAB) might reduce school absenteeism.…

Bell, Elizabeth – Educational Evaluation and Policy Analysis, 2021
In this article, I utilize a regression discontinuity design to estimate the effects of Tulsa Achieves--a prevalent and understudied type of tuition-free college program. In contrast to concerns regarding tuition-free community college suppressing bachelor's degree attainment, I find that Tulsa Achieves increased the likelihood of transferring to…

Curran, F. Chris; Viano, Samantha; Kupchik, Aaron; Fisher, Benjamin W. – Educational Evaluation and Policy Analysis, 2021
School resource officers (SROs) are common in schools, yet consequences of their presence are poorly understood. This study leveraged mixed-methods data from student surveys and group interviews across 25 schools to examine how the frequency of interactions and trust/comfort between students and SROs relate to disciplinary outcomes and feelings of…

Viano, Samantha; Curran, F. Chris; Fisher, Benjamin W. – Educational Evaluation and Policy Analysis, 2021
Adopting school resource officers (SROs) is a popular response to school shootings. Using the advocacy coalition and multiple streams frameworks, we explore how school districts in one county formed a coalition with the Sheriff's Department, adopting SROs in elementary schools following the Sandy Hook shooting. We describe how this coalition was…

Morgan, Paul L. – Educational Evaluation and Policy Analysis, 2021
Students who are Black or Hispanic are now reported to be less likely to be identified as having disabilities than similarly situated students who are White.

Tran, Long; Gershenson, Seth – Educational Evaluation and Policy Analysis, 2021
Student attendance is both a critical input and intermediate output of the education production function. However, the malleable classroom-level determinants of student attendance are poorly understood. We estimate the causal effect of class size, class composition, and observable teacher qualifications on student attendance by leveraging the…
