State-specific Design Parameters for Designing Better Evaluation Studies.
This IES-funded project seeks to use State Longitudinal Data Systems (SLDS) to estimate variance components and intraclass correlations for use in multi-level study designs in education. Having plausible values of intraclass correlations is essential to planning how many schools and students are needed for an evaluation design. This project is a continuation of efforts by Hedges and Hedberg to provide guidance on these parameters to the research community. Whereas their previous work used national probability samples to estimate these parameters, the current project uses state data. More
