Despite the overwhelming focus on the overall average treatment effect in the methodological and statistical literature, in many cases the efficacy of an educational program or intervention might vary based on unit background characteristics. The identification of subgroups for which an educational intervention is particularly effective or, on the…

Soland, James; Kuhfeld, Megan; Wolk, Emily; Bi, Sharon – Journal of Research on Educational Effectiveness, 2019
Social-emotional learning (SEL) is gaining prominence in education practice and policy. Research shows that SEL can be improved by short-term, targeted interventions and longer-term strategies to improve school contextual factors. However, little is known about how much of the variance in SEL constructs is stable over time versus specific to a…

Mac Iver, Martha Abele; Stein, Marc L.; Davis, Marcia H.; Balfanz, Robert W.; Fox, Joanna Hornig – Journal of Research on Educational Effectiveness, 2019
Building on previous research showing how well ninth-grade student behaviors predict on-time high school graduation, this experimental study investigates the impact of a ninth-grade intervention on student attendance and course passing. The study, conducted in 41 geographically and demographically diverse high schools within a single state,…

Parker, David C.; Nelson, Peter M.; Zaslofsky, Anne F.; Kanive, Rebecca; Foegen, Anne; Kaiser, Patrick; Heisted, David – Journal of Research on Educational Effectiveness, 2019
Evidence-based interventions exist for improving multiple fundamental math competencies, but delivering interventions with fidelity and within a data-driven, tiered framework is a practical challenge faced by most schools. The current study evaluated a math intervention program delivered with community-based resources via AmeriCorps. At the…

We used a cluster-randomized, wait-list controlled trial to examine impacts of a school-based social-emotional learning intervention on Congolese students and teachers. Seventy-six school clusters in two groups (A and B) were randomized to treatment or control. The groups differed in geographic location, accessibility, exposure to violence, and…

Jenkins, Jade Marcus; Whitaker, Anamarie Auger; Nguyen, Tutrang; Yu, Winnie – Journal of Research on Educational Effectiveness, 2019
Public preschool programs require the use of a research-based, whole-child curriculum, yet limited research examines whether curricula influence classroom experiences and children's development. We use five samples of preschool children to examine differences in classroom processes and children's school readiness by classroom curricular status…

Cannata, Marisa; Redding, Christopher; Nguyen, Tuan D. – Journal of Research on Educational Effectiveness, 2019
This article is situated at the intersection of two trends in education research: a growing emphasis on the importance of co-cognitive traits and the emergence of research-practice partnerships to more effectively scale effective practices. Our partnership focused on building student ownership and responsibility for their learning, which means…

Koedel, Cory; Li, Jiaxi; Springer, Matthew G.; Tan, Li – Journal of Research on Educational Effectiveness, 2019
Like other public workers, teachers typically receive high and compressed ratings that do little to differentiate them based on performance. Motivated by empirical evidence of substantial variation in effectiveness among teachers, there has been a recent push to develop more informative evaluation systems with greater ratings dispersion. We study…

Barr, Christopher D.; Reutebuch, Colleen K.; Carlson, Coleen D.; Vaughn, Sharon; Francis, David J. – Journal of Research on Educational Effectiveness, 2019
Beginning in 2002, researchers developed, implemented, and evaluated the efficacy of an English reading intervention for first-grade English learners using multiple randomized control trials (RCTs). As a result of this efficacy work, researchers successfully competed for an IES Goal 4 effectiveness study using the same intervention. Unlike the…

van Klaveren, Chris; Kooiman, Karen; Cornelisz, Ilja; Meeter, Martijn – Journal of Research on Educational Effectiveness, 2019
This study examines whether providing students with information on their future study success will influence their higher education enrollment decision and lower first-year dropout as a consequence. A randomized field experiment is conducted among 313 law and social science applicants at the Vrije Universiteit Amsterdam. The main results suggest…
