Grimm, Ryan P.; Solari, Emily J.; McIntyre, Nancy S.; Denton, Carolyn A. – Grantee Submission, 2018
This study identified distinct, homogeneous latent profiles of at-risk (n = 141) and not at-risk (n = 149) first grade readers. Separate latent profile analyses were conducted with each subgroup using measures of phonological awareness, decoding, linguistic comprehension, and oral reading fluency. This study also examined which measures best…

Powell, Sarah R.; Berry, Katherine A.; Benz, Sarah A.; Forsyth, Suzanne R.; Martinez-Lincoln, Amanda – Grantee Submission, 2017
Many elementary students have difficulty solving mathematical word problems. To alleviate trouble with word problems, we designed a word-problem intervention for 3rd-grade students with mathematics difficulty. In this intervention, tutors help students understand the three word-problem schemas for addition and subtraction word problems. Tutors…

Martorell, Paco; Stange, Kevin; McFarlin, Isaac, Jr. – Grantee Submission, 2016
Public investments in repairs, modernization, and construction of schools cost billions. However, little is known about the nature of school facility investments, whether it actually changes the physical condition of public schools, and the subsequent causal impacts on student achievement. We study the achievement effects of nearly 1,400 capital…

Candace, Walkington; Clinton, Virginia; Mingle, Leigh – Grantee Submission, 2016
This paper examines two factors that have been shown in previous literature to enhance students' interest in learning mathematics--personalization of problems to students' interest areas, and the addition of visual representations such as decorative illustrations. In two studies taking place within an online curriculum for middle school…

Nguyen, Tuan Dinh; Cannata, Marisa; Miller, Jason – Grantee Submission, 2016
Recent theoretical conceptualizations of student engagement have raised questions about how to measure student engagement and how engagement varies not only across schools, but also within school and within classrooms. The authors build on existing research on student behavioral engagement and extend this research to emphasize a continuum of…

Spaniol-Mathews, Patricia; Letourneau, Lawrence E.; Rice, Ethan – Grantee Submission, 2016
Though demonstrated as an effective strategy for enhancing academic performance and course persistence in higher education, traditional Supplemental Instruction (SI) relies on face-to-face interaction in a classroom setting. Consequently, students who have other obligations or feel apprehensive in a group setting often cannot attend traditional SI…

Troia, Gary A.; Olinghouse, Natalie G.; Mo, Ya; Hawkins, Lisa; Kopke, Rachel A.; Chen, Angela; Wilson, Joshua; Stewart, Kelly A. – Grantee Submission, 2015
Though writing plays an important role in academic, social, and economic success, typical writing instruction generally does not reflect evidence-based practices (EBPs). One potential reason for this is limited signposting of EBPs in standards. We analyzed the content of writing standards from a representative sample of states and the Common Core…
