More Research Is Needed on MyTeachingPartner Pre-K

Tue, 13 Feb 2018 08:14:44 EDT

MyTeachingPartner Pre-K is a professional development program for early education teachers that incorporates a video library, interactive training, a college course, and trained coaches to provide teachers with the knowledge and skills to engage in more effective student interactions. There are no studies of MyTeachingPartner Pre-K that meet WWC group design standards. Therefore, the WWC is unable to draw any conclusions based on research about the effectiveness or ineffectiveness of the program.

This report uses data from the Education Longitudinal Study of 2002 (ELS:2002), the 2004/09 Beginning Postsecondary Students Longitudinal Study (BPS:04/09), and the 2008/12 Baccalaureate and Beyond Longitudinal Study (B&B:08/12).

Wed, 7 Feb 2018 07:41:09 EDT

A new report volume from the National Longitudinal Transition Study 2012 (NLTS 2012) finds that, over the past decade (2003–2012), secondary school youth required under the Individuals with Disabilities Education Act (IDEA) to have an individualized education program (IEP) have become more engaged in school and increased their use of school supports. At the same time they are less likely than in the past to take some key steps to prepare for their transition to adult life.

High School Longitudinal Study of 2009 (HSLS:09) Second Follow-Up:A First Look at Fall 2009 Ninth-Graders in 2016

Thu, 1 Feb 2018 00:00:00 EDT

This publication provides descriptive findings from the High School Longitudinal Study of 2009 (HSLS:09) Second Follow-up. HSLS:09 follows a nationally representative sample of students who were ninth-graders in fall 2009 from the beginning of high school into higher education and the workforce. The second follow-up was conducted from March 2016 through January 2017, approximately 3 years after high school graduation for most of the cohort. The data collected allow researchers to examine an array of young-adulthood outcomes among fall 2009 ninth-graders, including delayed high school completion, postsecondary enrollment, early postsecondary persistence and attainment, labor market experiences, family formation, and family financial support.

For example, in the 2015–16 academic year, 72 percent of all undergraduate students received some type of financial aid (including student loans). For those who received any aid, the total average amount was $12,300. For more findings, see the full report.

More Research Needed on Harlem Children's Zone (HCZ) Promise Academy Charter Schools

Wed, 24 Jan 2018 07:55:36 EDT

HCZ Promise Academy Charter Schools is a non-profit organization designed to serve low-income children and families living in Harlem in New York City. The HCZ Promise Academy Charter Schools have a longer school day and year than traditional public schools, monitor student progress on academic outcomes, provide differentiated instruction, and educate students and families on character development, healthy lifestyles, and leadership skills. After reviewing the current research, the WWC found that no eligible studies meet WWC design standards. Therefore, more research is needed to determine the program’s effectiveness.
