Study of the Austin Independent School District’s Redesign and High School Reform Initiative: Interim Report
This report describes the Austin Independent School District’s recent effort to improve its high schools through a variety of initiatives led by the Office of District Redesign. The Bill & Melinda Gates Foundation supported the reform effort, as well as this evaluation through a grant to the Texas Education Agency. TEA contracted with SRI International to conduct the evaluation.
The research questions that guided the evaluation focused on the implementation of district-level changes, capacity-building efforts, and multiple supports for all high schools in the district. In addition, the evaluation examined student achievement and other outcomes. Researchers used a mixed method approach that included case studies of the district’s central office and a sample of high schools, surveys of a sample of students and teachers, and all high school principals, and the analysis of extant outcomes data.

Content analysis of collaboratively constructed knowledge artifacts: Issues and opportunities for research
New social media for collaborative knowledge construction, often associated with “Web 2.0,” represent an emerging context for the research of learning and instruction
This workshop explores issues emerging from integrating data streams by identifying a set of analytic difficulties researchers commonly face, and illustrating the application of specific methods that address these challenges.
We examine how encouraging students to compare rather than isolate variables affects their experimentation strategies and insights.
This study compared the effectiveness of three modalities of a behavioral smoking-cessation program in smokers using varenicline.
