Glazer, Joshua L.; Massell, Diane; Malone, Matthew – Educational Evaluation and Policy Analysis, 2019
States increasingly lean on charter organizations to take responsibility for their most underperforming turnaround schools.

This article relates the experience of operators within the…

McGee, Josh B.; Winters, Marcus A. – Educational Evaluation and Policy Analysis, 2019
Most U.S. public school teachers participate in defined benefit retirement plans, which base benefits on years of service and their last few years of salary. These plans are often backloaded and include sharp economic incentives. We consider the implications of transitioning to a cost-equivalent defined benefit plan under which teachers would earn…

Hull, Marie; Duch, Katherine – Educational Evaluation and Policy Analysis, 2019
This article uses a difference-in-differences strategy to evaluate the impact of a one-to-one laptop program. Teaching practices changed with the introduction of the program, and the district worked to make wireless Internet more accessible in the community. We find that while short-term impacts of the program were statistically insignificant,…

Cortes, Kalena E.; Lincove, Jane Arnold – Educational Evaluation and Policy Analysis, 2019
We examine the role of information in college matching behavior of low- and high-income students, exploiting a state automatic admissions policy that provides some students with perfect a priori certainty of college admissions. We find that admissions certainty encourages college-ready low-income students to seek more rigorous universities.…

This article uses data from the U.S. High School Longitudinal Study of 2009 to investigate the relationship between high school students' beliefs about female abilities in math and science and their teacher gender, beliefs, and classroom behaviors. Estimates are obtained by comparing the same ninth graders between math and science classes, thus…

Shapiro, Anna; Weiland, Christina – Educational Evaluation and Policy Analysis, 2019
There are unique challenges to estimating causal effects of preschool for students with special needs that have not received attention in the literature. We revisit the Head Start Impact Study (HSIS) to illustrate that when and how special needs is defined has implications for the internal validity of and interpretation of special needs subgroup…

Michigan Merit Curriculum (MMC) is a statewide college-preparatory policy that applies to the high school graduating class of 2011 and later. Using detailed Michigan high school transcript data, this article examines the effect of the MMC on various students' course-taking and achievement outcomes. Our analyses suggest that (a) post-MMC cohorts…

Hagood, Lori Prince – Educational Evaluation and Policy Analysis, 2019
Performance funding in higher education is intended to incentivize increased degree production at American colleges and universities by linking state funds directly to institutional outcomes. However, many critics suggest that such funding arrangements create systems of "winners and losers" by rewarding some institutions over others.…

Many low-income and first-generation students who enroll in college experience less desirable outcomes during their first year. Researchers have increasingly investigated the important role of college knowledge and engagement with faculty and staff for student success. Through a randomized controlled trial intervention, this study leverages the…

Logue, A. W.; Douglas, Daniel; Watanabe-Rose, Mari – Educational Evaluation and Policy Analysis, 2019
Traditional mathematics remediation is based on the theory that traditional mathematics remedial courses increase students' subsequent academic performance. However, most students assigned to these courses do not pass them and thus cannot graduate. An alternative approach, corequisite remediation, assigns students instead to college-level…

Jabbar, Huriya; Castro, Andrene; Germain, Emily – Educational Evaluation and Policy Analysis, 2019
Informal and institutional barriers may limit teacher movement between charter schools and traditional public schools (TPSs). However, we know little about how teachers choose schools in areas with a robust charter school sector. This study uses qualitative data from 123 teachers to examine teachers' job decisions in three cities with varying…

Bartanen, Brendan; Grissom, Jason A.; Rogers, Laura K. – Educational Evaluation and Policy Analysis, 2019
Nationally, 18% of principals turn over each year, yet research has not yet credibly established the effects of this turnover on student and teacher outcomes. Using statewide data from Missouri and Tennessee, we employ a difference-in-differences model with a matched comparison group to estimate arguably causal effects. We find that principal…

Dee, Thomas S.; Dizon-Ross, Elise – Educational Evaluation and Policy Analysis, 2019
States that receive federal waivers to the No Child Left Behind Act were required to implement reforms in designated "Focus Schools" that contribute to achievement gaps. We examine the performance effects of such "differentiated accountability" reforms in Louisiana. These Focus School reforms emphasized school-needs assessments…
