Rambo-Hernandez, Karen E.; Peters, Scott J.; Plucker, Jonathan A. – Journal of Advanced Academics, 2019
Despite considerable reform activity surrounding K-12 education over the past 20 years, racial and socioeconomic disparities among students who achieve at advanced levels have received little attention. This study examined how excellence gaps, defined as differences in performance at the 90th percentile of subgroups, change over time and their…

Liang, Jian-Hua; Heckman, Paul E.; Abedi, Jamal – Journal of Advanced Academics, 2018
This study examines the power of cognitive and noncognitive variables to predict students' performance in algebra. We investigated students' prior year's assessment scores and demographic characteristics to predict eighth-grade algebra scores. Using California statewide assessment data, we explored predictive factors in three regression models.…

Hodges, Jaret; McIntosh, Jason; Gentry, Marcia – Journal of Advanced Academics, 2017
High-potential students from low-income families are at an academic disadvantage compared with their more affluent peers. To address this issue, researchers have suggested novel approaches to mitigate gaps in student performance, including out-of-school enrichment programs. Longitudinal mixed effects modeling was used to analyze the growth of…

Coleman, Mary Ruth Blackwell – Journal of Advanced Academics, 2016
One of the most challenging decisions made by school system administrators each year is how to assign students to teachers. This decision, usually guided by the administrator's beliefs and values, has major implications for the teacher and the student. Collins and Gan undertook a complex study to examine the impact of grouping practices on student…

Cho, Seokhee; Yang, Jenny; Mandracchia, Marcella – Journal of Advanced Academics, 2015
The purpose of this study was to examine the effects of Mentoring Mathematical Minds (M3) units on gains in mathematics achievement and English proficiency of mathematically promising English language learners (MPELLs) in the third grade. The M3 program, developed by Gavin et al., was implemented for 1 year with treatment MPELLs (n = 86) but not…

Foreman, Jennifer L.; Gubbins, E. Jean – Journal of Advanced Academics, 2015
Teacher nominations of students are commonly used in gifted and talented identification systems to supplement psychometric measures of reasoning ability. In this study, second grade teachers were requested to nominate approximately one fourth of their students as having high learning potential in the year prior to the students' participation in a…

Ryoo, Ji Hoon; Molfese, Victoria J.; Heaton, Ruth; Zhou, Xin; Brown, E. Todd; Prokasky, Amanda; Davis, Erika – Journal of Advanced Academics, 2014
The 2011 Trends in International Mathematics and Science Study shows average mathematics scores of U.S. fourth graders are lower than children in many Asian countries. There are questions about differences in mathematics skills at younger ages. This study examines differences in score growth for High-, Average-, and Low-performing children in two…

Brulles, Dina; Peters, Scott J.; Saunders, Rachel – Journal of Advanced Academics, 2012
An increasing number of schools are implementing gifted cluster grouping models as a cost-effective way to provide gifted services. This study is an example of comparative action research in the form of a quantitative case study that focused on mathematic achievement for nongifted students in a district that incorporated a schoolwide cluster…

Simms, Kathryn – Journal of Advanced Academics, 2012
This study compared immigrant and nonimmigrant educational achievement (i.e., the immigrant gap) in math by reexamining the explanatory power of race and socioeconomic status (SES)--two variables, perhaps, most commonly considered in educational research. Four research questions were explored through growth curve modeling, factor analysis, and…

Kitsantas, Anastasia; Cheema, Jehanzeb; Ware, Herbert W. – Journal of Advanced Academics, 2011
The present study used the u.S. portion of the Program for International Student Assessment (PISA) to examine how homework resources, mathematics self-efficacy, and time spent on homework impacted mathematics achievement across gender and ethnicity. The findings showed that achievement gaps diminished with the increase in availability of homework…

Young, Adena E.; Worrell, Frank C.; Gabelko, Nina H. – Journal of Advanced Academics, 2011
In this study, we used logistic regression to examine how well student background and prior achievement variables predicted success among students attending accelerated and enrichment mathematics courses at a summer program (N = 459). Socioeconomic status, grade point average (GPA), and mathematics diagnostic test scores significantly predicted…

O'Shea, Margaret; Heilbronner, Nancy N.; Reis, Sally M. – Journal of Advanced Academics, 2010
The issue of gender differences in female math achievement, especially among highly able females has been studied by researchers over the last few decades. The Scholastic Achievement Test (SAT), the most widely used instrument in the screening of college applicants, continues to show large and consistent differences among high-ability students,…

Dove, Mary Jane; Pearson, L. Carolyn; Hooper, Herbert – Journal of Advanced Academics, 2010
The relationship between grade span configuration and academic achievement of 6th-grade students as measured by the Arkansas Benchmark Examination, which is the approved NCLB criterion-referenced annual assessment, was examined. The results of a one-between two-within analysis of variance for the 3-year state-wide study of 6th graders' combined…
