Cobb, Casey D. – Review of Research in Education, 2020
A robust body of geographic education policy research has been amassing over the past 25 years, as researchers from a variety of disciplinary backgrounds have recognized the value of examining education phenomena from a spatial perspective. In this chapter, I synthesize 42 studies that examine education issues using a geographic information…

Yurkofsky, Maxwell M.; Peterson, Amelia J.; Mehta, Jal D.; Horwitz-Willis, Rebecca; Frumin, Kim M. – Review of Research in Education, 2020
As a result of the frustration with the dominant "What Works" paradigm of large-scale research-based improvement, practitioners, researchers, foundations, and policymakers are increasingly embracing a set of ideas and practices that can be collectively labeled continuous improvement (CI) methods. This chapter provides a comparative…

Miller, Richard; Liu, Katrina; Ball, Arnetha F. – Review of Research in Education, 2020
Counter-narrative has recently emerged in education research as a promising tool to stimulate educational equity in our increasingly diverse schools and communities. Grounded in critical race theory and approaches to discourse study including narrative inquiry, life history, and autoethnography, counter-narratives have found a home in…

Goren, Heela; Yemini, Miri; Maxwell, Claire; Blumenfeld-Lieberthal, Efrat – Review of Research in Education, 2020
This chapter presents an innovative, cross-disciplinary methodological approach to systematically reviewing and comparing large bodies of literature using big data, Natural Language Processing, network analysis, and supplementary qualitative analysis. The approach is demonstrated through an analysis of the literature surrounding four common…

Philip, Thomas M.; Gupta, Ayush – Review of Research in Education, 2020
In this chapter, we examine a significant shift in research in the learning sciences, mathematics education, and science education that increasingly attends to the co-construction of power and learning. We review articles in these fields that embody a new sense of theoretical and methodological possibilities and dilemmas, brewing at the…

Froehlich, Dominik E.; Van Waes, Sara; Schäfer, Hannah – Review of Research in Education, 2020
Social network analysis (SNA) is becoming a prevalent method in education research and practice. But criticism has been voiced against the heavy reliance on quantification within SNA. Recent work suggests combining quantitative and qualitative approaches in SNA--mixed methods social network analysis (MMSNA)--as a remedy. MMSNA is helpful for…

Butler, Alisha; Sinclair, Kristin A. – Review of Research in Education, 2020
Place is an inescapable aspect of daily life and is intimately linked to our life experiences. An expanding body of research has investigated how place shapes the "geography of opportunity" as well as students', families', and stakeholders' experiences in and around schools. While researchers have begun to investigate the spatial context…

Fischer, Christian; Pardos, Zachary A.; Baker, Ryan Shaun; Williams, Joseph Jay; Smyth, Padhraic; Yu, Renzhe; Slater, Stefan; Baker, Rachel; Warschauer, Mark – Review of Research in Education, 2020
The emergence of big data in educational contexts has led to new data-driven approaches to support informed decision making and efforts to improve educational effectiveness. Digital traces of student behavior promise more scalable and finer-grained understanding and support of learning processes, which were previously too costly to obtain with…

Hammond, J. W.; Moss, Pamela A.; Huynh, Minh Q.; Lagoze, Carl – Review of Research in Education, 2020
Research syntheses provide one means of managing the proliferation of research knowledge by integrating learnings across primary research studies. What it means to appropriately synthesize research, however, remains a matter of debate: Syntheses can assume a variety of forms, each with important implications for the shape knowledge takes and the…

Viano, Samantha; Baker, Dominique J. – Review of Research in Education, 2020
Measuring race and ethnicity for administrative data sets and then analyzing these data to understand racial/ethnic disparities present many logistical and theoretical challenges. In this chapter, we conduct a synthetic review of studies on how to effectively measure race/ethnicity for administrative data purposes and then utilize these measures…

Cilesiz, Sebnem; Greckhamer, Thomas – Review of Research in Education, 2020
Qualitative comparative analysis (QCA) is a set-theoretic configurational approach that uses the logic of Boolean algebra to conceptualize and empirically examine potentially complex causal relations. The potential of this methodological innovation to draw innovative insights toward answering enduring questions and to foster novel research has…

Green, Judith L.; Baker, W. Douglas; Chian, Monaliza Maximo; Vanderhoof, Carmen; Hooper, LeeAnna; Kelly, Gregory J.; Skukauskaite, Audra; Kalainoff, Melinda Z. – Review of Research in Education, 2020
This review presents theoretical underpinnings supporting microethnographic-discourse analytic (ME/DA) approaches to studying educational phenomena. The review is presented in two parts. Part 1 provides an analytic review of two seminal reviews of literature that frame theoretical and methodological developments of microethnography and functions…

Gopalan, Maithreyi; Rosinger, Kelly; Ahn, Jee Bin – Review of Research in Education, 2020
In the past few decades, we have seen a rapid proliferation in the use of quasi-experimental research designs in education research. This trend, stemming in part from the "credibility revolution" in the social sciences, particularly economics, is notable along with the increasing use of randomized controlled trials in the strive toward…

Schachter, Rachel E.; Freeman, Donald; Parakkal, Naivedya – Review of Research in Education, 2020
Connecting teachers' perspectives with their practice is an enduring challenge shaping what and how we understand teaching. Researchers tend to bifurcate teachers' work between their private and their public lives. These "worlds" bring particular meanings that are rendered through the analyses of visual documentations of teaching and…

Perin, Dolores; Holschuh, Jodi Patrick – Review of Research in Education, 2019
Only 25% to 38% of secondary education graduates in the United States are proficient readers or writers but many continue to postsecondary education, where they take developmental education courses designed to help them improve their basic academic skills. However, outcomes are poor for this population, and one problem may be that approaches to…
