  • Academic achievement of homeless and highly mobile children in an urban school district: Longitudinal evidence on risk, growth, and resilience

    1/1/09 - Obradović, Jelena, Long, Jeffrey D., Cutuli, J. J., Chi-Keung, Chan, Hinz, Elizabeth, Heistad, David, Masten, Ann S.

    Longitudinal growth trajectories of reading and math achievement were studied in four primary school grade cohorts (GCs) of a large urban district to examine academic risk and resilience in homeless and highly mobile (H/HM) students. Initial achievement was assessed when student cohorts were in the second, third, fourth, and fifth grades, and again 12 and 18 months later. Achievement trajectories of H/HM students were compared to low-income but nonmobile students and all other tested...

  • Effects of single-sex and coeducational schooling on the gender gap in educational achievement

    1/1/08 - Gibb, Sheree J., Fergusson, David M., Horwood, L. John

    This study examined the effects of single-sex and coeducational schooling on the gender gap in educational achievement to age 25. Data were drawn from the Christchurch Health and Development Study, a longitudinal study of a birth cohort of 1265 individuals born in 1977 in Christchurch, New Zealand. After adjustment for a series of covariates related to school choice, there were significant differences between single-sex and coeducational schools in the size and direction of the gender gap...

  • Preschool Antecedents of Mathematics Achievement of Latinos: The Influence of Family Resources, Early Literacy Experiences, and Preschool Attendance

    1/1/07 - Lopez, Edward M., Gallimore, Ronald, Garnier, Helen

    Seventy-three Latino middle school students participated in a longitudinal study of the preschool antecedents of their mathematics achievement. Path analysis indicated that family resources (parents' educational level, occupation, and income) predicted home literacy activities, which predicted combined early Spanish literacy and English language proficiencies at kindergarten entry, which predicted elementary mathematics achievement, which in turn predicted middle school mathematics...

  • The Achievement Gap in Social Studies and Science Starts Early

    1/1/06 - Chapin, June R.

    The article focuses on the findings of a longitudinal study which investigated social studies and science education achievement gaps in early childhood. Using the Early Childhood Longitudinal Study, fifty-one science and social studies test items were combined into a General Knowledge Test. The test was administered individually to each respondent with no reading required. The analysis of the scores of the General Knowledge Test are discussed. The first years in education are critical for...

  • Understanding Trends in the Black-White Achievement Gaps during the First Years of School

    1/1/06 - Murnane, Richard J., Willett, John B., Bub, Kristen L., McCartney, Kathleen

    The article examines the research conducted by Ronald G. Fryer and Steven D. Levitt, focusing on differences by grade in the black-white test score gap in reading and mathematics, based on analyses of data on the Early Childhood Longitudinal Study (ECLS-K) in the U.S. The types of school quality indicators used are discussed. A comparison between the data sets of ECLS-K and the National Institute of Child Health and Human Development (NICHD) is also presented.
