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…

Nurshatayeva, Aizat; Page, Lindsay C. – Journal of Research on Educational Effectiveness, 2020
English-only college education in non-English speaking countries is a rapidly growing phenomenon that has been dubbed as the most important trend in higher education internationalization. Despite worldwide popularity, there is little empirical evidence about how the transition to English-only instruction affects students' academic outcomes. Using…

Hanno, Emily C.; Gonzalez, Kathryn E. – Journal of Research on Educational Effectiveness, 2020
Student absenteeism is a widespread and critical issue in early childhood education. Current efforts to reduce student absenteeism in both preschool and K-12 settings have largely been family- and parent-focused interventions. Yet, interventions targeting teachers and schools may similarly be effective tools to improve student attendance. We…

Bowen, Daniel H.; Kisida, Brian – Journal of Research on Educational Effectiveness, 2020
Preparing students to be effective citizens is a longstanding goal of public education. Historical content provides illustrative opportunities for civic learning. Teaching about the Holocaust exemplifies this approach. Employing an experimental research design with 865 secondary school students, we analyze effects on civic outcomes from learning…

Didion, Lisa; Toste, Jessica R.; Filderman, Marissa J. – Journal of Research on Educational Effectiveness, 2020
Research-based instruction is necessary to support students' reading development, and professional development (PD) is a critical avenue to ensuring high-quality instructional practices. To date, there has been no comprehensive review focused on the effects of teacher PD on student reading achievement. As such, the purpose of the present…

Atchison, Drew – Journal of Research on Educational Effectiveness, 2020
Prior to the 2012-13 school year, New York and many other states underwent changes to their accountability systems as a result of applying for and being granted waivers from the requirements of the No Child Left Behind Act of 2001. A key component of these new accountability systems, under what is known as ESEA Flexibility or NCLB Waivers, was the…

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…

Goldhaber, Dan; Krieg, John M.; Theobald, Roddy – Journal of Research on Educational Effectiveness, 2020
We exploit within-teacher variation in the years that math and reading teachers in grades 4-8 host an apprentice ("student teacher") in Washington State to estimate the causal effect of these apprenticeships on student achievement, both during the apprenticeship and afterwards. While the average causal effect of hosting a student teacher…

Whittaker, Jessica V.; Kinzie, Mable B.; Vitiello, Virginia; DeCoster, Jamie; Mulcahy, Christina; Barton, Emily A. – Journal of Research on Educational Effectiveness, 2020
This randomized controlled trial examined effects of the MyTeachingPartner-Math/Science intervention on the quality and quantity of teachers' mathematics and science instruction, and children's mathematics and science outcomes in 140 pre-kindergarten classrooms. Teachers participated in the intervention for two years with consecutive cohorts of…

Murphy, Robert; Roschelle, Jeremy; Feng, Mingyu; Mason, Craig A. – Journal of Research on Educational Effectiveness, 2020
We report on a randomized controlled trial of an intervention that leverages the availability of laptops for all public-school students in the state of Maine. The intervention, called "ASSISTments," provides feedback to students as they solve mathematics homework problems and automatically prepares reports for teachers about student…

Ganimian, Alejandro; Barrera-Osorio, Felipe; Biehl, María Loreto; Cortelezzi, María Ángela – Journal of Research on Educational Effectiveness, 2020
We evaluate a long-standing program run by one of the largest education foundations in Argentina that offers scholarships and nonacademic mentoring to secondary school students. We randomly assigned 408 grade 6 students within 10 public schools in the Province of Buenos Aires to either receive the program throughout secondary school or not to…

Gandhi, Jill; Watts, Tyler W.; Masucci, Michael D.; Raver, C. Cybele – Journal of Research on Educational Effectiveness, 2020
This study examined two widely available light-touch, writing-based mindset interventions: one that targeted students' purpose for learning and one that aimed to increase students' growth mindset. In order to examine the potential mechanisms underlying previously reported effects of mindset interventions, we analyzed these interventions' effects…
