I often write about research studies from various fields and how they can be applied to the classroom. I write individual posts about ones that I think are especially significant, and will continue to do so. However, so many studies are published that it’s hard to keep up. So I’ve started writing a “round-up” of some of them each week or every other week as a regular feature.
By the way, you might also be interested in MY BEST POSTS ON NEW RESEARCH STUDIES IN 2021 – PART TWO.
You can see all my “Best” lists related to education research here.
Here are some new useful studies (and related resources):
Replication is important for educational psychology: Recent developments and key issues appeared in Educational Psychologist. You might also be interested in THIS IS INTERESTING & DEPRESSING: ONLY .13% OF EDUCATION RESEARCH EXPERIMENTS ARE REPLICATED.
Impacting 9th Grade Educational Outcomes: Results from a Multisite Randomized Controlled Trial of the BARR Model is from Journal of Research on Educational Effectiveness. I’m adding it to The Best Resources For Learning About The Importance Of Ninth-Grade For Students – & How To Support Them. I’ve previously written about BARR at New Study Finds That Specific Ninth-Grade Intervention Very Effective & It’s Remarkably Similar To What We Do At Our School.
Study: Common school ratings biased, often inaccurate is from Chalkbeat. I’m adding it to The Best Evidence For Why Giving Schools “Report Cards” Is Bad — Help Me Find More.
I’m adding this next tweet to The Best Resources On Why Improving Education Is Not THE Answer To Poverty & Inequality:
“African Americans have made considerable gains in HS and college completion over the last 4.5 decades—both in absolute terms & relative to whites—but those gains have had virtually no effect on equalizing employment outcomes between Black & white workers” https://t.co/ns6XYLDbB6

Just out. We provide strong evidence across multiple states that school mobility not related to normal transitions between schools is a powerful predictor of future test performance and graduation.
