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)…

Warne, Russell T. – Journal of Advanced Academics, 2016
Card and Giuliano conducted a regression discontinuity study in a large Florida school district to investigate the magnitude of academic benefits of the district's gifted program.

Missett, Tracy C.; Foster, Lisa H. – Journal of Advanced Academics, 2015
In an environment of accountability, the development of evidence-based practices is expected. To demonstrate that a practice is evidence based, quality indicators of rigorous methodology should be present including indications that teachers implementing an intervention have done so with fidelity to its design. Because evidence-based practices…
