Berthelon, Matias; Bettinger, Eric; Kruger, Diana I.; Montecinos-Pearce, Alejandro – Research in Higher Education, 2019
Peer effects are an important contributing factor in the learning process. Most of the prior literature on peer effects focuses on the characteristics of peers rather than examining the structure of peer networks. We attempt to measure not only the impact of peers but also the structure of the peer network. In particular we are interested in the…

Beaulac, Cédric; Rosenthal, Jeffrey S. – Research in Higher Education, 2019
In this article, a large data set containing every course taken by every undergraduate student in a major university in Canada over 10 years is analysed. Modern machine learning algorithms can use large data sets to build useful tools for the data provider, in this case, the university. In this article, two classifiers are constructed using random…

Alleman, Nathan F.; Nelson, Justin J.; Cliburn Allen, Cara – Research in Higher Education, 2019
Although tenure denial is a familiar feature of the faculty profession, the dearth of specific research on the subject indicates that it is a phenomenon not sufficiently understood. The analyses that do exist are largely a-theoretical and unsystematic. In this qualitative study, we employed Goffman's social psychological concepts of stigma and…

Judson, Eugene; Ross, Lydia; Glassmeyer, Kristi – Research in Higher Education, 2019
Across disciplines, male faculty spend more time on research than female faculty. Yet, women tend to teach and mentor students more hours than men (Misra et al. in Glob J Eng Educ 14(1):119-131, 2011). These disparities play pivotal roles in tenure and promotion decisions wherein research and leadership roles are most valued (Green in J Soc Work…

Skinner, Benjamin T. – Research in Higher Education, 2019
Postsecondary students increasingly enroll in online courses, which have the potential to further democratize higher education by expanding access for historically underserved populations. While a number of studies have investigated student outcomes in online courses, past data limitations have hindered robust examination of a potential mechanism…

This study employs difference-in-differences estimation to explore the relationship between the implementation of state merit-aid programs and students' participation in study abroad. The relationship between implementation of these financial aid programs and study abroad participation has not been tested explicitly in prior policy or education…

Roksa, Josipa; Kinsley, Peter – Research in Higher Education, 2019
While college education is a key to upward mobility, low-income students are substantially less likely to earn bachelor's degrees than their more economically advantaged peers. Prior higher education literature illuminates various factors contributing to student success, but few studies consider the role of family support after students enter…

Evans, Brent J.; Boatman, Angela; Soliz, Adela – Research in Higher Education, 2019
Evidence from behavioral economics suggests that the framing and labeling of choices affect financial decisions. Through a randomized control trial of over six thousand high school seniors, community college students, and adults without a college degree, we identify the existence of both framing and labeling effects in respondents' preferences for…

Ngo, Federick – Research in Higher Education, 2019
This study investigates the link between basic math skills, remediation, and the educational opportunity and outcomes of community college students. Capitalizing on a unique placement policy in one community college that assigns students to remedial coursework based on multiple math skill cutoffs, I first identify the skills that most commonly…

Baker, Rachel; Evans, Brent; Li, Qiujie; Cung, Bianca – Research in Higher Education, 2019
Time management skills are an essential component of college student success, especially in online classes. Through a randomized control trial of students in a for-credit online course at a public 4-year university, we test the efficacy of a scheduling intervention aimed at improving students' time management. Results indicate the intervention had…

Spencer, George – Research in Higher Education, 2019
This study investigates the use of transfer guides to help students identify transferrable prerequisite credits for academic majors. Employing administrative data of students enrolled in Ohio community colleges, I examine the impact of these curricular roadmaps, called Transfer Assurance Guides (TAG), which were featured in reforms of the state's…

George Mwangi, Chrystal A.; Cabrera, Alberto F.; Kurban, Elizabeth R. – Research in Higher Education, 2019
Parental involvement is widely acknowledged as a critical factor influencing the college choice process among families. What is not clear, though, is whether this parental driven factor also takes place at the school level along with school related factors. Using a national sample of 9th grade students drawn from about 900 schools, we found that…

Lukács J., Ágnes; Dávid, Beáta – Research in Higher Education, 2019
Roma university students' personal networks become unstable in the process of college transition. We describe the personal networks of these students using the model set up by Brandes et al. (in: Proceedings of the IEEE pacific visualization symposium (Pacific Vis'08), IEEE Computer Society Press, 2008) and analyse the identified groups utilizing…

Myers, Carrie B.; Myers, Scott M.; Peters, Martha – Research in Higher Education, 2019
There is concern that civic engagement in the U.S. has declined recently especially among the younger generations. It is known that one of the strongest predictors of civic engagement is education level, where those with at least a college degree typically have the highest levels of civic engagement. There is also emerging evidence that college…

Caparrós-Ruiz, Antonio – Research in Higher Education, 2019
Education and research are considered as the cornerstones of the economic growth and the job creation for the Lisbon Strategy proposed by the European Union. Therefore, understanding the transmission channels of the educational investments to the society is important to inform policymakers and students about the benefits and opportunities…
