Sales, Adam C.; Pane, John F. – Journal of Research on Educational Effectiveness, 2021
Randomized evaluations of educational technology produce log data as a bi-product: highly granular data on student and teacher usage. These datasets could shed light on causal mechanisms, effect heterogeneity, or optimal use. However, there are methodological challenges: implementation is not randomized and is only defined for the treatment group,…

Hasan, Amer; Jung, Haeil; Kinnell, Angela; Maika, Amelia; Nakajima, Nozomi; Pradhan, Menno – Journal of Research on Educational Effectiveness, 2021
This paper examines the child development outcomes of two cohorts of children who were exposed to the same intervention at different points in time. One cohort was eligible to access playgroups during the first year of a five-year project cycle, beginning at age four. The other cohort became eligible to access these services during the third year…

Stallasch, Sophie E.; Lüdtke, Oliver; Artelt, Cordula; Brunner, Martin – Journal of Research on Educational Effectiveness, 2021
To plan cluster-randomized trials with sufficient statistical power to detect intervention effects on student achievement, researchers need multilevel design parameters, including measures of between-classroom and between-school differences and the amounts of variance explained by covariates at the student, classroom, and school level. Previous…

Chin, Mark J. – Journal of Research on Educational Effectiveness, 2021
English learners' (ELs) day-to-day experiences in school change when reclassified as fully English proficient. Prior research, however, is mixed on how reclassification influences outcomes. Many studies also do not or cannot explore key long-term outcomes or identify impacts over time. In this study, I leverage longitudinal student data in a…

McCormick, Meghan P.; Neuhaus, Robin; O'Connor, Erin E.; White, Hope I.; Horn, E. Parham; Harding, Samantha; Cappella, Elise; McClowry, Sandee – Journal of Research on Educational Effectiveness, 2021
Social-Emotional Learning (SEL) programs are school-based preventive interventions that aim to improve children's social-emotional skills and behaviors. Although meta-analytic research has shown that SEL programs implemented in early childhood can improve academic and behavioral outcomes in the short-term, there is limited work examining program…

Kuhfeld, Megan; Soland, James – Journal of Research on Educational Effectiveness, 2021
Important educational policy decisions, like whether to shorten or extend the school year, often require accurate estimates of how much students learn during the year. Yet, related research relies on a mostly untested assumption: that growth in achievement is linear throughout the entire school year. We examine this assumption using a dataset…

Song, Mengli; Zeiser, Kristina; Atchison, Drew; Brodziak de los Reyes, Iliana – Journal of Research on Educational Effectiveness, 2021
Following up on a previous impact study of Early Colleges (EC) based on retrospective admission lotteries, this study assessed longer-term impacts on students' postsecondary outcomes with 4 more years of data. The study found that students who won EC admission lotteries were significantly more likely to enroll in college, enroll in 2-year…

Miratrix, Luke W.; Weiss, Michael J.; Henderson, Brit – Journal of Research on Educational Effectiveness, 2021
Researchers face many choices when conducting large-scale multisite individually randomized control trials. One of the most common quantities of interest in multisite RCTs is the overall average effect. Even this quantity is non-trivial to define and estimate. The researcher can target the average effect across individuals or sites. Furthermore,…

Deke, John; Wei, Thomas; Kautz, Tim – Journal of Research on Educational Effectiveness, 2021
Evaluators of education interventions are increasingly designing studies to detect impacts much smaller than the 0.20 standard deviations that Cohen characterized as "small." While the need to detect smaller impacts is based on compelling arguments that such impacts are substantively meaningful, the drive to detect smaller impacts may…

Cheung, Alan C. K.; Xie, Chen; Zhuang, Tengteng; Neitzel, Amanda J.; Slavin, Robert E. – Journal of Research on Educational Effectiveness, 2021
Success for All (SFA) is a comprehensive whole-school approach designed to help high-poverty elementary schools increase the reading success of their students. It is designed to ensure success in grades K-2 and then build on this success in later grades. SFA combines instruction emphasizing phonics and cooperative learning, one-to-small group…

Kowalski, Susan M.; Taylor, Joseph A.; Askinas, Karen M.; Wang, Qian; Zhang, Qi; Maddix, William P.; Tipton, Elizabeth – Journal of Research on Educational Effectiveness, 2020
Developing and maintaining a high-quality science teaching corps has become increasingly urgent with standards that require students to move beyond mastering facts to reasoning and arguing from evidence. "Effective" professional development (PD) for science teachers enhances teacher outcomes and, in turn, enhances primary and secondary…

Bloom, Howard; Bell, Andrew; Reiman, Kayla – Journal of Research on Educational Effectiveness, 2020
This article assesses the likely generalizability of educational treatment-effect estimates from regression discontinuity designs (RDDs) when treatment assignment is based on academic pretest scores. Our assessment uses data on outcome and pretest measures from six educational experiments, ranging from preschool through high school, to estimate…

Hallberg, Kelly; Williams, Ryan; Swanlund, Andrew – Journal of Research on Educational Effectiveness, 2020
More aggregate data on school performance is available than ever before, opening up new possibilities for applied researchers interested in assessing the effectiveness of school-level interventions quickly and at a relatively low cost by implementing comparative interrupted times series (CITS) designs. We examine the extent to which effect…

Kelcey, Ben; Spybrook, Jessaca; Dong, Nianbo; Bai, Fangxing – Journal of Research on Educational Effectiveness, 2020
Professional development for teachers is regarded as one of the principal pathways through which we can understand and cultivate effective teaching and improve student outcomes. A critical component of studies that seek to improve teaching through professional development is the detailed assessment of the intermediate teacher development processes…

Kuhfeld, Megan; Soland, James – Journal of Research on Educational Effectiveness, 2020
Educational stakeholders have long known that students might not be fully engaged when taking an achievement test and that such disengagement could undermine the inferences drawn from observed scores. Thanks to the growing prevalence of computer-based tests and the new forms of metadata they produce, researchers have developed and validated…
