• Teachers in Social Media

American Education Finance & Policy Conference 2018

Zixi Chen traveled to Portland, Oregon to share results of a high-stakes Indiana reading assessment, I-READ3, on teachers instructional planning within Pinterest. Using a comparative interrupted time series approach, the Teachers in Social Media team identified differences in early elementary teachers and upper elementary teachers English Language Arts resource acquisition within Pinterest pre and post assessment reform. They find delayed impacts of the I-READ3 on teachers planning over time, with those impacted by the reform seeking out additional supplemental English Language Arts materials compared to their non-treated counterparts.

Next steps include modeling change at an individual level.
