Boatman, Angela; Long, Bridget Terry – Educational Evaluation and Policy Analysis, 2018
We examine the impact of remedial and developmental courses on college students with varying levels of academic preparedness, thus focusing on a wider range of students than previous studies. Using a regression discontinuity design, we provide causal estimates of the effects of placement in different levels of remedial courses on short-,…

Kramer, Dennis A., II; Holcomb, Michael R.; Kelchen, Robert – Educational Evaluation and Policy Analysis, 2018
The growth of the public discourse on college completion and student debt has pushed policymakers and institutional leaders to implement a variety of policies aimed at incentivizing student completion. This article examines state-adopted excess credit hour (ECH) policies on student completion and median debt outcomes. Using a quasi-experimental…

Egalite, Anna J.; Kisida, Brian – Educational Evaluation and Policy Analysis, 2018
Using student survey data from six U.S. school districts, we estimate how assignment to a demographically similar teacher affects student reports of personal effort, happiness in class, feeling cared for and motivated by their teacher, the quality of student-teacher communication, and college aspirations. Relying on a classroom fixed-effects…

Liebowitz, David D. – Educational Evaluation and Policy Analysis, 2018
In the early 1990s, the Supreme Court established standards to facilitate the release of school districts from racial desegregation orders. Over the next two decades, federal courts declared almost half of all districts under court order in 1991 to be "unitary"--that is, to have met their obligations to eliminate dual systems of…

Zhang, Liang – Educational Evaluation and Policy Analysis, 2018
In this study, I used American Community Survey (ACS) 2005-2015 data to examine the enrollment effect of the Post-9/11 GI Bill; the analysis resulted in three main findings: First, although the New GI Bill has increased overall college enrollment by about 3 percentage points on average, the effect was much larger immediately after the bill's…

Darolia, Rajeev; Harper, Casandra – Educational Evaluation and Policy Analysis, 2018
A prominent concern is that college students are harming their long-term economic prospects by making student loan decisions without full information about the implications of their choices. We designed an experiment to examine students' responses to a debt letter, an increasingly popular strategy to provide easily accessible information about…

Cunha, Jesse M.; Miller, Trey; Weisburst, Emily – Educational Evaluation and Policy Analysis, 2018
We study GO Centers, a college information program that is run by student peers and provides information about all aspects of the college-going process to academically prepared students on the margin of attending college. We use the semi-random rollout of the program along with detailed panel data on the universe of Texas public school students to…

Shin, Nami – Educational Evaluation and Policy Analysis, 2018
Despite federal and state laws and regulations that require states and local districts to provide English language learners (ELLs) with support services, prior research has indicated that ELLs are, in general, lagging behind non-ELLs in academic achievement. An unanswered question is whether the initial designation of students as ELL influences…

Quinn, David M.; Kim, James S. – Educational Evaluation and Policy Analysis, 2018
Theory and empirical work suggest that teachers' social capital influences school improvement efforts. Social ties are prerequisite for social capital, yet little causal evidence exists on how malleable factors, such as instructional management approaches, affect teachers' ties. In this cluster-randomized trial, we apply a decision-making…

Mokher, Christine G.; Leeds, Daniel M.; Harris, Julie C. – Educational Evaluation and Policy Analysis, 2018
The Florida College and Career Readiness Initiative (FCCRI) was a statewide policy requiring college readiness testing and participation in college readiness courses for high school students. We used regression discontinuity to compare outcomes for students scoring just above and below test score cutoffs for assignment to FCCRI. We also examined…

Bray, Laura E.; Russell, Jennifer Lin – Educational Evaluation and Policy Analysis, 2018
In this qualitative comparative case study, we drew from institutional theory and cultural historical activity theory to explore how educators wrote, used, and conceptualized the role of Individualized Education Programs (IEPs) for students with specific learning disabilities within secondary inclusive settings. We found that students' IEPs were…

Jensen, Nate; Rice, Andrew; Soland, James – Educational Evaluation and Policy Analysis, 2018
While most educators assume that not all students try their best on achievement tests, no current research examines if behaviors associated with low test effort, like rapidly guessing on test items, affect teacher value-added estimates. In this article, we examined the prevalence of rapid guessing to determine if this behavior varied by grade,…

Atteberry, Allison; Loeb, Susanna; Wyckoff, James – Educational Evaluation and Policy Analysis, 2017
Educators raise concerns about what happens to students when they are exposed to new or new-to-school teachers. However, even when teachers remain in the same school they can switch roles by moving grades and/or subjects. We use panel data from New York City to compare four ways in which teachers are new to assignment: new to teaching, new to…

Adnot, Melinda; Dee, Thomas; Katz, Veronica; Wyckoff, James – Educational Evaluation and Policy Analysis, 2017
In practice, teacher turnover appears to have negative effects on school quality as measured by student performance. However, some simulations suggest that turnover can instead have large positive effects under a policy regime in which low-performing teachers can be accurately identified and replaced with more effective teachers. This study…

Jacob, Brian; Dynarski, Susan; Frank, Kenneth; Schneider, Barbara – Educational Evaluation and Policy Analysis, 2017
This article examines the impacts of the Michigan Merit Curriculum (MMC), a statewide college-preparatory curriculum that applies to the high school graduating class of 2011 and later. Our analyses suggest that the higher expectations embodied in the MMC had slight impact on student outcomes. Looking at student performance in the ACT, the only…
