by Heather C. Hill, Douglas Lyman Corey & Robin T. JacobSince 2002, U.S. federal funding for educational research has favored the development and rigorous testing of interventions designed to improve student outcomes. However, a large proportion of the programs developed and rigorously tested in the past decade have shown null results on both student outcomes and, often, intermediate variables. In this paper, we argue for a more systematic approach to examining null results, and illustrate this approach via an examination of one program’s failure to impact teaching and learning.

by Jennifer A. Delaney & William R. Doyle This study documents changes in the amount of volatility in state funding for higher education. It also identifies patterns in the volatility, and does so over a longer time period than has been investigated in past research, using data that spans over a half century (1951–2006).
