Scaling Psychological Insights to Help StudentsAdd to Calendar
12:00 pm – 1:30 pm
I will review research exploring the mechanisms underlying two effective, replicated, psychologically-informed, low-cost education interventions. The first focuses on parent misbeliefs regarding their students’ school absences (N=28,080). The second focuses on informing parents of actions they can take at home to support student success (N=6,976). I will then discuss on-going efforts to scale both interventions around the US, one of which has been rapidly adopted while the other has not. Finally, I will discuss why the adoption of these two effective interventions has varied so widely.
