Koedel, Cory; Li, Jiaxi; Springer, Matthew G.; Tan, Li – Journal of Research on Educational Effectiveness, 2019
Like other public workers, teachers typically receive high and compressed ratings that do little to differentiate them based on performance. Motivated by empirical evidence of substantial variation in effectiveness among teachers, there has been a recent push to develop more informative evaluation systems with greater ratings dispersion. We study…

Barr, Christopher D.; Reutebuch, Colleen K.; Carlson, Coleen D.; Vaughn, Sharon; Francis, David J. – Journal of Research on Educational Effectiveness, 2019
Beginning in 2002, researchers developed, implemented, and evaluated the efficacy of an English reading intervention for first-grade English learners using multiple randomized control trials (RCTs). As a result of this efficacy work, researchers successfully competed for an IES Goal 4 effectiveness study using the same intervention. Unlike the…

van Klaveren, Chris; Kooiman, Karen; Cornelisz, Ilja; Meeter, Martijn – Journal of Research on Educational Effectiveness, 2019
This study examines whether providing students with information on their future study success will influence their higher education enrollment decision and lower first-year dropout as a consequence. A randomized field experiment is conducted among 313 law and social science applicants at the Vrije Universiteit Amsterdam. The main results suggest…

Wolf, Sharon; Aber, J. Lawrence; Behrman, Jere R.; Tsinigo, Edward – Journal of Research on Educational Effectiveness, 2019
We assessed the impacts of a teacher professional development program for public and private kindergartens in the Greater Accra Region of Ghana. We examined impacts on teacher professional well-being, classroom quality, and children's readiness during one school year. This cluster-randomized trial included 240 schools (teachers N = 444; children N…

Dobronyi, Christopher R.; Oreopoulos, Philip; Petronijevic, Uros – Journal of Research on Educational Effectiveness, 2019
This article presents an independent large-scale experimental evaluation of two online goal-setting interventions. Both interventions are based on promising findings from the field of social psychology. Approximately 1,400 first-year undergraduate students at a large Canadian university were randomly assigned to complete one of two online…

Spybrook, Jessaca; Anderson, Dustin; Maynard, Rebecca – Journal of Research on Educational Effectiveness, 2019
The Society for Research on Educational Effectiveness, with funding from the Institute of Education Sciences (IES), has been working to develop and implement a registry for education studies, the Registry of Efficacy and Effectiveness Studies (REES) (https://www. sree.org/pages/registry.php). REES aims to increase transparency, rigor, and…

Schwartz, Kate; Cappella, Elise; Aber, J. Lawrence – Journal of Research on Educational Effectiveness, 2019
There is a profound for more effective schools, especially within resource-poor communities in low- and middle-income countries. A wide range of literature identifies teachers as the most critical component of schools in regards to student learning. Despite this, there is a dearth of literature on how teachers' experiences influence their ability…

Truckenmiller, Adrea J.; Park, Jiyoon; Dabo, Arfang; Wu Newton, Yi-Chieh – Journal of Research on Educational Effectiveness, 2019
Academic language, which is characterized by the words and structure of the language of schooling, is an important teachable component of academic achievement. When compared to other strong predictors of academic achievement (e.g., decoding, fluency, vocabulary, comprehension), academic language is not as well understood or explicitly taught in…

Santana, Macarena; Nussbaum, Miguel; Carmona, Raimundo; Claro, Susana – Journal of Research on Educational Effectiveness, 2019
There is a consensus that family involvement is key to academic achievement. However, it is often difficult to keep parents involved, particularly when they lack the time or academic knowledge. The aim of this study is to evaluate the impact on achievement in mathematics among adolescent children when involving parents from low-income communities…

Dragoset, Lisa; Thomas, Jaime; Herrmann, Mariesa; Deke, John; James-Burdumy, Susanne; Lee Luca, Dara – Journal of Research on Educational Effectiveness, 2019
As part of the American Recovery and Reinvestment Act of 2009, the School Improvement Grants (SIG) program received more than $3 billion with the goal of substantially improving student achievement. The SIG program's funding was to help states turn around the nation's persistently lowest-achieving schools using one of four school intervention…

LoCasale-Crouch, Jennifer; Williford, Amanda; Whittaker, Jessica; DeCoster, Jamie; Alamos, Pilar – Journal of Research on Educational Effectiveness, 2018
This study examined fidelity of implementation in a randomized trial of Banking Time, a classroom-based intervention intended to improve children's behavior, specifically for those at risk for developing externalizing behavior problems, through improving the quality of teacher-child interactions. The study sample comes from a randomized controlled…

Hedges, Larry V. – Journal of Research on Educational Effectiveness, 2018
The scientific rigor of education research has improved dramatically since the year 2000. Much of the credit for this improvement is deserved by Institute of Education Sciences (IES) policies that helped create a demand for rigorous research; increased human capital capacity to carry out such work; provided funding for the work itself; and…

Miratrix, Luke; Furey, Jane; Feller, Avi; Grindal, Todd; Page, Lindsay C. – Journal of Research on Educational Effectiveness, 2018
Estimating treatment effects for subgroups defined by posttreatment behavior (i.e., estimating causal effects in a principal stratification framework) can be technically challenging and heavily reliant on strong assumptions. We investigate an alternative path: using bounds to identify ranges of possible effects that are consistent with the data.…

This multiyear scale-up effectiveness study of Open Court Reading (OCR) involved approximately 4,500 students and more than 1,000 teachers per year in Grades K-5 from 49 elementary schools in seven districts across the country. Using a school-level cluster randomized trial design, we assessed the implementation and effectiveness of Open Court…

Heppen, Jessica B.; Zeiser, Kristina; Holtzman, Deborah J.; O'Cummings, Mindee; Christenson, Sandra; Pohl, Angie – Journal of Research on Educational Effectiveness, 2018
Although graduation rates are rising, the high school dropout problem remains a national crisis, and evidence-based information about interventions for at-risk students is critically needed. Prior research shows that Check & Connect, an individualized mentoring program, has positive effects on school persistence and progression for students…
