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):

Addressing Chronic Absenteeism in Schools: A Meta-Analysis of Evidence-Based Interventions is a bit of a depressing study which basically found that no interventions worked. I’m adding it to The Best Resources On Student Absenteeism.

What Does Research Say About Grade Retention? A Few Key Studies to Know is from Ed Week. I’m adding it to The Best Resources For Learning About Grade Retention, Social Promotion & Alternatives To Both.

The good and bad of virtual on-demand tutoring is from Brookings.

New Study: $40 Stipend Draws Substitute Teachers into Hard-to-Staff Schools is from The 74.
