Using a multilevel model and controlling for prior achievement, we found that PSFs mediated between 3% and 41% of the gender…

Kettler, Todd; Puryear, Jeb S.; Mullet, Dianna R. – Journal of Advanced Academics, 2016
Definitions of rurality in education research are inconsistent, making generalization across studies difficult at best. We review published research in rural education between 2005 and 2015 (n = 17) and characterize the way each defined rural. A common technique for classifying rural schools is the National Center for Educational Statistics (NCES)…
