Learning to Improve: How America's Schools Can Get Better at Getting Better

Available in: Paperback
In Learning to Improve, the authors argue for a new approach to education reform that leverages "networked improvement communities" to address high school dropout rates and other core concerns.

Hierarchical Linear Models: Applications and Data Analysis Methods

Available in: Hardcover

Popular in the First Edition for its rich, illustrative examples and lucid explanations of the theory and use of hierarchical linear models (HLM), the book has been reorganized into four parts with four completely new chapters. The first two parts, Part I on "The Logic of Hierarchical Linear Modeling" and Part II on "Basic Applications" closely parallel the first nine chapters of the previous edition with significant expansions and technical clarifications, such as:

* An intuitive introductory summary of the basic procedures for estimation and inference used with HLM models that only requires a minimal level of mathematical sophistication in Chapter 3
* New section on multivariate growth models in Chapter 6
* A discussion of research synthesis or meta-analysis applications in Chapter 7
* Data analytic advice on centering of level-1 predictors and new material on plausible value intervals and robust standard estimators
