The applicant will assist the Individualizing Student Instruction Lab PI with different aspects of multiple federally funded projects. One project is part of the IES-funded Early Learning Network that focuses on identifying child and teacher factors that predict a successful transition from PreK to Kindergarten through third grade. As the Assessment Team, UCI will focus on the development and implementation of an observation system meant for optimizing learning opportunities for students (OLOS). As such, the project will largely consist of performing observations in PreK-3rd grade classrooms as well as administering assessments, coordinating with schools, and coding the collected data.
Additionally, the applicant will also assist with testing for another project aimed at improving reading comprehension skills using interactive e-books. Tasks for this project will include setting up the e-books for online use, administrating assessments, data entry, as well as helping to implement the intervention in classrooms.
