ROMA: a guide to policy engagement and influenceYoung, J., Shaxson, L., Jones, H., … Cassidy, C. - 2014 - Overseas Development Institute
Excerpt "It is worth noting that ROMA draws heavily on the concepts underpinning Outcome Mapping (OM). Developed in the early 2000s, OM is an approach to fostering change that centres on understanding how different actors behave and how changing the behaviour of one actor fosters change in another (see Box 1). The context within which policy change happens is a complex one, happening with a range of different actors at different levels, as Chapter 1 outlines.
Channeling Fisher: Randomization Tests and the Statistical Insignificance of Seemingly Significant Experimental Results*Young, A. - 2019 - The Quarterly Journal of Economics, 134(2), 557–598
I follow R. A. Fisher'sThe Design of Experiments (1935), using randomization statistical inference to test the null hypothesis of no treatment effects in a comprehensive sample of 53 experimental papers drawn from the journals of the American Economic Association. In the average paper, randomization tests of the significance of individual treatment effects find 13% to 22% fewer significant results than are found using authors’ methods. In joint tests of multiple treatment effects appearing...

We found moderate to large positive impacts on observed emotional and instructional support as well as classroom organization in prekindergarten classrooms after...
One step at a time: the effects of an early literacy text-messaging program for parents of preschoolersYork, B. N., Loeb, S., & Doss, C. - 2019 - Journal of Human Resources, 54(3), 537–566
Large systematic differences in young children’s home learning experiences have long-term economic consequences. Many parenting programs place significant demands on parents’ time and inundate parents with information. This study evaluates the effects of READY4K!, an eight-month-long text-messaging intervention for parents of preschoolers that targets the behavioral barriers to engaged parenting. We find that READY4K! increased parental involvement at home and school by 0.15 to 0.29 standard...

Preservice teachers’ perceptions about the use of blended learning in a science education methods courseYılmaz, Ö., & Malone, K. L. - 2020 - Smart Learning Environments, 7(1)
The purpose of this quantitative study was to determine the effectiveness of blended learning within the context of a science education methods course for early childhood elementary preservice teachers in Turkey. Elementary teachers historically fear science and avoid using it in their classes. This course was blended to allow the students to experience active science learning during face to face sessions. Student perceptions about their experiences in a blended methods course were collected...
