Faculty Research Scientist Peggy Estrada ’s $1.6 million, four-year research project on K-12 English learner (ELs), students with a home language other than English who have not met English proficiency criteria, is featured in the spring edition of Stanford University Graduate School of Education’s Digital Initiatives Newsletter. The featured article discusses the projects’ transition from paper and pencil to paperless, digital survey data collection in the field using iPads, the advantages of this approach, and lessons learned. Dr. Estrada’s project is using a multi-method design and following seven cohorts of students for four years to examine the process of reclassifying ELs to fluent English proficient, the factors that impede and facilitate reclassification, and the consequences of continuing EL status for access to the core curriculum and to non-EL peers.
