Research Roundup

Impacts of professional development in classroom assessment on teacher and student outcomes
The Journal of Educational Research

An impact study conducted by McREL of the Classroom Assessment for Student Learning (CASL) program, a professional development program on formative assessment practices, found positive impacts of CASL on teacher knowledge of assessment and the frequency of student involvement in classroom assessment. However, the study also found that implementation fidelity of the program was below the CASL developer recommendations, and no statistically significant impacts on student achievement were found.

Is classroom stress contagious? Study shows link between teacher and student stress
University of British Columbia

A recent study of 406 4th- through 7th-graders and their classroom teachers showed a link between teacher stress and higher levels of cortisol, a hormone related to stress, in students. Teachers completed surveys and rated school climate indicators and their associated stress levels, while students’ free cortisol levels in their saliva were tested three times each day over a period of eight weeks.

The Hidden Role of Teachers: Child and classroom predictors of change in interracial friendships
New York University (NYU)

Using data from the Early Adolescent Development Study, researchers from NYU showed that interracial friendships among elementary and middle school students decrease over time, even in diverse classrooms. However, the study also showed that teachers can play a role in fostering friendship diversity.

Educational Administration Quarterly

Results from a study of McREL’s Balanced Leadership (BL) PD program by education researcher Roger Goddard and colleagues showed that 100 principals in rural Michigan who participated in the PD program reported growth on the majority of outcomes targeted by BL, as compared with a control group that did not receive the training. The largest impacts were on sense of efficacy for instructional improvement, reported ability to bring about change, and strength of norms for teachers’ instructional practice.
