Director: John Tyler
Research Theme: Development, Institutions and Demographic Change
Location: United States of America
Funding: Spencer Foundation

Tyler uses objective data in the form of automatically generated web logs to examine how much and in what ways teachers in the New York City school system use ARIS, an online tool designed to deliver student information and test data to teachers in order to inform and improve instructional practice. The study will also examine the extent to which usage is associated with student achievement and school performance.
