Russell Sage Foundation: Small Awards Competition for Emerging Schollars

Improving Education and Reducing Inequality in the United States

The Russell Sage Foundation (RSF) and the William T. Grant Foundation (W.T. Grant) request proposals for research projects that investigate educational opportunity and success in the U.S. by utilizing data on academic achievement from the Stanford Education Data Archive (SEDA). The archive, constructed by Sean Reardon (Stanford University) and colleagues, contains data on the results of over 300 million standardized achievement tests taken by about 40 million public school students from 2009 to 2015. This new data was made public on December 5, 2017. The New York Times mapped these test scores in two interactive charts that demonstrate the effectiveness of school districts nationwide.
