  • PLS Title Small class size has at best a small effect on academic achievement
  • PLS Description Increasing class size is one of the key variables that policy makers can use to control spending on education. But the consensus among many in education research is that smaller classes are effective in improving student achievement which has led to a policy of class size reductions in a number of US states, the UK, and the Netherlands. This policy is disputed by those who argue that the effects of class size reduction are only modest and that there are other more cost-effective strategies for improving educational standards. Despite the important policy and practice implications of the topic, the research literature on the educational effects of class-size differences has not been clear. This review systematically reports findings from relevant studies that measure the effects of class size on academic achievement.
  • Title Small class sizes for improving student achievement in primary and secondary schools
  • Spanish PLS Las clases pequeñas tienen, en el mejor de los casos, un efecto leve en el rendimiento académico y pueden perjudicar a algunos estudiantes
  • Spanish PLS Description Aumentar el tamaño de las clases es una de las variables clave que los formuladores de políticas pueden utilizar para controlar el gasto en educación. Pero existe una opinión generalizada en la investigación sobre educación de que las clases más pequeñas son efectivas para mejorar el rendimiento estudiantil, lo que ha llevado a una política de reducción del tamaño de las clases en varios estados de EE.UU., en el Reino Unido y en Holanda. Esta política es cuestionada por aquellos que argumentan que los efectos de la reducción de tamaño de la clase son apenas modestos, y que existen otras estrategias más rentables para mejorar el nivel educativo. A pesar de las importantes implicancias políticas y prácticas del tema, la literatura de investigación que versa sobre los efectos en la educación de las diferencias en el tamaño de las clases no ha sido clara. Esta revisión informa sistemáticamente acerca de los resultados de estudios relevantes que miden los efectos del tamaño de la clase sobre el rendimiento académico.

  • PLS Title There is insufficient evidence to know whether recovery high schools and collegiate recovery communities are effective
  • PLS Description Based on the results of one study, recovery high schools (RHSs) may reduce high school students’ school absenteeism, marijuana use, and other drug use, and increase abstinence from drugs; but RHSs may be no better or worse than other high schools in improving grades, reducing truancy, or reducing alcohol use. It is unclear whether collegiate recovery communities (CRCs) are effective in promoting academic success and reducing substance use among college students.

  • PLS Title There are too few well-designed studies to know the effects of Teach for America on Math, English Language Arts, and Science outcomes of K–12 students in the USA
  • PLS Description There are too few well-designed studies to know the effects of Teach for America on Math, English Language Arts, and Science outcomes of K–12 students in the USA Teach for America (TFA) is an alternate route teacher preparation program that aims to address the decades-long shortage of effective teachers in many rural and urban public schools for kindergarten through 12th grade (K–12), that serve the highest proportions of high-poverty students across the USA. This review finds that are very few studies – just four – which reliably measure the effects of TFA on learning outcomes, so that no firm conclusions may be drawn. This systematic review evaluated the impact of TFA prepared teachers (corps members) relative to novice teachers and alumni relative to veteran teachers on K-12 student outcomes in Math, English Language Arts (ELA), and Science.

  • Spanish PLS Existen pocos estudios bien diseñados para conocer los efectos del programa Teach for America sobre los resultados en Matemáticas, Lenguaje y Ciencias de los estudiantes de educación primaria y secundaria en EE.UU.
  • Spanish PLS Description Esta revisión sistemática evaluó el impacto de los docentes preparados por TFA (miembros del cuerpo docente) con respecto a los docentes novatos, y de los estudiantes de TFA con respecto a los docentes veteranos, en los resultados de los estudiantes de K–12 en Matemáticas, Lenguaje y Ciencias.

  • PLS Title Deployment to military operations negatively affects the mental health functioning of deployed military personnel
  • PLS Description When military personnel are deployed to military operations abroad they face an increased risk of physical harm, and an increased risk of adverse shocks to their mental health. The primary condition under consideration is deployment to an international military operation. Deployment to a military operation is not a uniform condition; rather, it covers a range of scenarios. Military deployment is defined as performing military service in an operation at a location outside the home country for a limited time period, pursuant to orders. The review included studies that reported outcomes for individuals who had been deployed. This review looked at the effect of deployment on mental health outcomes. The mental health outcomes are: post-traumatic stress disorder (PTSD), major depressive disorder (MDD), common mental disorders (depression, anxiety and somatisation disorders) and substance-related disorders. By identifying the major effects of deployment on mental health and quantifying these effects, the review can inform policy development on deployment and military activity as well as post-deployment support for veterans. In this way the review enables decision-makers to prioritise key areas.

  • Spanish PLS El despliegue de operaciones militares afecta negativamente la salud mental del personal militar movilizado
  • Spanish PLS Description Cuando se moviliza personal militar a operaciones militares en el extranjero, se enfrentan a mayores riesgos físicos y traumas adversos para su salud mental. La condición primordial considerada es el despliegue de una operación militar internacional. El despliegue de una operación militar no es algo uniforme; más bien, cubre varios escenarios. El despliegue militar se define como la prestación del servicio militar en una operación fuera del país de origen y por un período de tiempo limitado, en conformidad con las órdenes entregadas.
