2017 NAEP: Exploring the “Homework Gap” in Math Performance

Given the vast amount of data that the US Department of Education released today regarding student academic performance in math and reading, it will take a while for researchers to make sense of all the questions they are interested in exploring. My interests are primarily about the impact of access to and use of computers and the internet on student performance. I also am interested in mode effects (i.e., whether experience taking exams on a computer yields different estimates of student performance than on paper, based primarily on prior student exposure to and comfort with digital learning technologies).
