Anderson, Daniel – School Effectiveness and School Improvement, 2019
Much research has evaluated teacher- or school-level variance in students' achievement as a proxy for teacher or school effects. These effects have almost exclusively been estimated across years with state-level testing data. In this paper, interim assessment data, collected across 9 time points in the fall, winter, and spring of Grades 3 to 5…

This study examined dual language learners' (DLLs n = 24) and English-only (EO n = 20) children's expressive and receptive language in kindergarten (M[subscript age] = 5.7 years) as well as the relation to peers' language use. Expressive language skills (vocabulary diversity, syntactic complexity) were measured in the fall, winter, and spring…

Chalfant, Charles Garrett – ProQuest LLC, 2019
Students who struggle to read at an early age are likely to continue struggling for not only the rest of their schooling, but the rest of their lives. Schools need to begin adopting research-based reading programs and measuring their effectiveness formatively throughout the school year. Research suggests that effective reading programs need to…

When it snows, children are permitted to play outside during recess, which causes them to experience a variety of problems with their mittens or gloves. To align instruction with a problem student's experience in every day life, the authors developed and administered a short survey to second graders in an after school program. The authors found…

Buttermore, John; Baker, Eliott; Culp, David – College and University, 2014
Time-compressed courses at state-supported universities have served a variety of purposes. It has been traditional to set scheduling policies that would make summer and winter sessions self-funding. They have not been viewed, however, as potential enrollment generators. This is an opportunity that can no longer be overlooked. This paper describes…

Abugaliyeva, Aigul I.; Morgounov, Alexey I. – International Journal of Environmental and Science Education, 2016
The grain quality of winter wheat varies significantly by cultivars and growing region, not previously differentiated by end-use (baking, confectionery, etc.) in the national breeding programs. In these conditions it is advisable to determine the genetic potential and analyze the actual grain quality. Determining the genetic potential requires the…

Sozashvili, Nino; Bohm, Jan; Bynoe, Tyrone; Barbakadze, Irma – Universal Journal of Educational Research, 2016
Scientific studies never replace or supplant subjective theories, but in the best case, enter a productive symbiosis; they can contribute to reflecting on and understanding one's own assumptions and thereby make them available to change. It is pedagogically sensible to address this tension between scientific and subjective theory, and thereby make…

Tieu, Lyn; Romoli, Jacopo; Poortman, Eva; Winter, Yoad; Crain, Stephen – Journal of Child Language, 2018
Previous developmental studies of conjunction have focused on the syntax of phrasal and sentential coordination (Lust, 1977; de Villiers, Tager-Flusberg & Hakuta, 1977; Bloom, Lahey, Hood, Lifter & Fiess, 1980, among others). The present study examined the flexibility of children's interpretation of conjunction. Specifically, when two…
