Faria, Ann-Marie; Sorensen, Nicholas; Heppen, Jessica; Bowdon, Jill; Eisner, Ryan – Society for Research on Educational Effectiveness, 2018
The national high school graduation rate reached its highest level in U.S. history--82 percent--during the 2013-14 school year (Kena et al., 2016)--but dropout remains a persistent problem in the Midwest and nationally. Early warning systems that use research-based warning signs to identify students at risk of dropping out have emerged as one…

Sorensen, Nicholas; Oyserman, Daphna; Eisner, Ryan; Yoder, Nicholas; Horowitz, Eric – Society for Research on Educational Effectiveness, 2018
Nearly one in five Americans does not graduate from high school (U.S. Department of Education, 2017) and risk of dropout disproportionally affects economically disadvantaged, racial/ethnic minorities. Dropout occurs for many reasons but usually results from cumulative disengagement with school (Fine, 1991; Orfield et al., 2004). Identity-Based…

Wang, Haiwen; Means, Barbara; Young, Viki; House, Ann – Society for Research on Educational Effectiveness, 2018
Policymakers argue that only by enlarging the science, technology, engineering, and mathematics (STEM) pipeline in a way that attracts, supports, and sustains the participation of students from all kinds of backgrounds can the United States meet its needs for science and technology innovation, economic prosperity, and social well-being (National…

Gehring, William J.; Hsu, Julian; Ai, Wei – Society for Research on Educational Effectiveness, 2018
Under-prepared college students are at risk of dropping out (Bettinger & Long, 2005) and having lower academic achievement to their better-prepared peers. Yet they would likely benefit most from higher education (Jaegar & Page, 1996; Kane & Rouse, 1995), highlighting the need for institutional support. While developmental courses in…

May, Henry; Jones, Akisha; Tilley, Kati; Grajeda, Sara; Blackman, Horatio; Wang, Rui; Farley-Ripple, Elizabeth – Society for Research on Educational Effectiveness, 2018
Beginning with the "No Child Left Behind Act" of 2001 (NCLB) and reinforced by the "Education Sciences Reform Act" of 2002 (ESRA), the federal government established explicit expectations for the role of research in informing decisions about education programs, policies, and practice, and it also specified new expectations for…

Society for Research on Educational Effectiveness, 2018
Countries in Latin America and the Caribbean have made progress in increasing primary school enrollment and completion among the very poor. However, challenges in improving reading persist. This study contributes to the evidence base on what works to improve early-grade reading skills by evaluating an early reading program implemented in two…

Beesley, Andrea D.; Fancsali, Cheri; Gulemetova, Michaela – Society for Research on Educational Effectiveness, 2018
This paper describes a cluster-randomized trial of an after-school program intended to build mathematical identity among students in groups under-represented in science, technology, engineering and mathematics (STEM). Populations under-represented in STEM include women, persons with disabilities, African Americans, and Latino/as (NSF, 2011). U.S.…

Jitendra, Asha K.; Harwell, Michael R.; Karl, Stacy R.; Im, Soo-hyun; Slater, Susan C. – Society for Research on Educational Effectiveness, 2018
Ratio and proportional relationships, along with the interrelated topics of fractions, decimals, and percent provide a critical foundation for algebra (National Mathematics Advisory Panel, 2008). Solving even simple proportion problems is challenging for many children and adolescents. A small number of studies have examined the efficacy of…

Schochet, Peter – Society for Research on Educational Effectiveness, 2018
Design-based methods have recently been developed as a way to analyze data from impact evaluations of interventions, programs, and policies (Freedman, 2008; Lin, 2013; Imbens and Rubin, 2015; Schochet, 2013, 2016; Yang and Tsiatis, 2001). The non-parametric estimators are derived using the building blocks of experimental designs with minimal…

Sorensen, Nicholas; Cade, Whitney; de la Torre, Marisa; Eisner, Ryan; Walters, Kirk; Rickles, Jordan – Society for Research on Educational Effectiveness, 2018
Enrollment in eighth-grade algebra doubled from the 1990s to 2012 (National Center for Education Statistics, 2013) as research demonstrated that Algebra I operates as a "gateway" to advanced mathematics courses in high school (Adelman, 2006), and that students who succeed in Algebra I in middle school have more success in mathematics…

Deke, John; Wei, Thomas; Kautz, Tim – Society for Research on Educational Effectiveness, 2018
Evaluators of education interventions increasingly need to design studies to detect impacts much smaller than the 0.20 standard deviations that Cohen (1988) characterized as "small." For example, an evaluation of Response to Intervention from the Institute of Education Sciences (IES) detected impacts ranging from 0.13 to 0.17 standard…

Im, Soo-hyun; Jitendra, Asha K.; Harwell, Michael R.; Karl, Stacy R.; Slater, Susan C. – Society for Research on Educational Effectiveness, 2018
Ratio and proportional relationships, along with the interrelated topics of fractions,decimals, and percent, provide a critical foundation for algebra (National Mathematics Advisory Panel, 2008). Proportional reasoning, which not only requires understanding the concept of ratios and that two or more ratios are equal, also requires the ability to…

Bowden, A. Brooks – Society for Research on Educational Effectiveness, 2017
Initiatives during the Bush Administration and the Obama Administration may have set the stage for a"Golden Age of evidence-based policy" (Haskins, 2015). Together these efforts stress the importance of accurate, internally valid evidence that can inform decisions to more efficiently allocate public resources. In 2002, the U.S.…

Lombardi, Allison R.; Rifenbark, Graham G. – Society for Research on Educational Effectiveness, 2017
Secondary students must be exposed to technology in blended learning environments across general and special education settings to ensure they learn technology skills as well as continue to learn fundamental reading skills in order to be prepared for college and careers. Reading skills affect later life outcomes, such as employment status (Kutner…

McKown, Clark; Russo-Ponsaran, Nicole – Society for Research on Educational Effectiveness, 2017
Despite increasing consensus that social-emotional learning (SEL) is an important contributor to success in school and life, few tools are available for educators to assess SEL skill and to use assessment results to inform educational practice. In particular, there are no scalable, feasible, usable, and scientifically sound assessment systems that…
