Research Interests

  • J. Lawrence Aber - Professor of Applied Psychology

    Dr. Aber has focused his research on the social, emotional, motivational and behavioral development of high-risk children and youth, including abused/neglected and poor/disadvantaged preschool and school-aged children, and children and adolescents in areas of concentrated poverty and armed conflict; parent development; program and policy implications of developmental research with high-risk children and youth; the influence of neighborhood and family socio-economic disadvantage on parent and child development; developmental approaches to the design and evaluation of preventive interventions; policy research on child and family services.

    Current Research Grants include:

    • Co-Investigator, "Health Risk Behavior in Late Childhood: Impact of a Longitudinal Randomized Trial".  This study proposes to rigorously test the effects of a long-term (3-year), school-randomized universal preventive intervention called 4R's (Reading, Writing, Respect and Resolution) on children's health risk behaviors as they make the transition from elementary to middle school.  Funded by National Institutes of Mental Health (2008-2012).
    • Co-Principal Investigator, "Examining the Effectiveness of Scaling Up the 'First Things First' High School Reform".  The primary goal of this school-randomized experiment is to test the effects of a comprehensive high school reform model on the educational motivation, engagement and outcomes of youth in schools that serve a high percentage of low-income, ethnic-minority students.  Funded by USDE/IES; Bill and Melinda Gates Foundation (2007-2013).
    • Principal Investigator, "Well-being of South African Children: Household, community and policy influences".  This project is a short-term, longitudinal, multi-level study of 1,800 7 - to 10-year-olds and their parents/parent surrogates in 24 urban and rural South African communities in KwaZulu-Natal to determine the impact of changes in families’ income and material disadvantage on children’s cognitive and social-emotional development and to examine the influence of grants and services on households and children. Funded by National Institute of Child Health & Human Development (2008-2013).
    • Principal Investigator, "The New York University (NYU) Predoctoral Training Program in Education Sciences".  This project will train 28 doctoral students from diverse backgrounds to become outstanding researchers in the educational sciences. This interdisciplinary fellowship program is designed to train the next generation of quantitative educational researchers in methodological techniques developed to more accurately identify educational effects through the utilization of randomized experimental designs, quasi-experimental methods and other statistical approaches appropriate for causal inference and the analysis of multi-level data on students, teachers, schools and developmental contexts.   Funded by the US Department of Education/ Institute on Education Sciences (2008-2013).
    • Co-Investigator, "Impact Evaluation of the OPEQ Intervention in the Democratic Republic of Congo".  The primary goal of this project is to improve teachers' motivation and performance and elementary school children's numeracy, literacy and socio-emotional wellbeing in 3 provinces of the Democratic Republic of Congo (i.e., Katanga, North Kivu, South Kivu) through curriculum development, teacher training and community mobilization. Funded by the United States Agency for International Development (2010-2015) and the Novo Foundation (2011-2013).
    • Co-Investigator, "Moderators, Mechanisms, Methods and Measurement in the Head Start Impact Study: Informing Head Start of the Future".  This project created a center to conduct secondary analysis of data from the Head Start Impact Study (HSIS).  These analyses will extend HSIS findings to address a key question if left unanswered: how are features of Head Start centers associated with variation in program impacts on key child outcomes of cognitive functioning, social-emotional skills, and health status?  Funded by the Administration for Children and Families (2011-2013).

  • Arvind Rajagopal - Professor of Media, Culture and Communication My research and scholarly writing over the last ten years have focused on the constitutive role of media in linking political-economic processes such as market deregulation and the rise of new image and knowledge-based economies, with transformations of public and political culture. In particular, my research seeks to understand how political authority changes when multicultural societies with recently nationalized state apparatuses simultaneously experience the growth of communications, rising consumption, market deregulation, and a diminishing monopoly over the legitimate means of coercion. I ask how print and electronic media together enable the rise of more democratic public cultures and social relations, even as they are also crucial to the rise of new disciplinary technologies. In the process, I highlight the drawbacks of Eurocentric accounts of media and technology that relegate non-western developments to the status of marginalia and aberration.

    Current Research Activities and Interests I am actively involved in two new research activities that grow out of prior interests and work: 1) understanding the impact of middle school transitions; and 2) developing the measurement of teacher practices and classroom processes (social regularities) that are cost-efficient, rigorous, and useful for feedback to teachers to improve their performance. 1. Middle School Transitions In collaboration with Dr. Elise Capella, we are conducting a secondary analysis study using a nationally representative sample of schools and children for who repeated waves of data have been collected from Kindergarten to 8th grade. We are trying to understand the impact of both differential timing of the transition to middle grade schools (e.g., at 5th, 6th, or 7th grade versus a K-8 school) and the differential quality of sending and receiving school (e.g., heterogeneity of population, climate) on youth outcomes. 2. Measuring Teacher Practices I am collaborating with Dr. Aber on a large-scale randomized control trial on an integrated classroom-based socio-emotional, literacy, and numeracy intervention in the Democratic Republic of the Congo (DRC). Here I have taken primary responsibility for the development of a measure of teacher practices and classroom processes that will be cost-efficient, rigorous, and provide feedback to teachers to improve their performance. These results will enable us to see if we have altered the classroom as a setting and to examine whether student-level outcomes are mediated by changes in these classroom practices, Previous Research on Adolescent Development in the Urban Context In the recent past, and in collaboration with Drs. Larry Aber and LaRue Allen, I have conducted a longitudinal study of over 1400 economically at-risk urban adolescents, known as the Adolescent Pathways Project (APP; Seidman, 1991). The bulk of my work on the APP has focused on several major issues: 1) understanding how the normative transitions from elementary to junior high school and from junior to senior high school impact developmental trajectories; 2) developing a holistic understanding of how the unique constellations of daily transactions of youth with their family, peers, school, and neighborhood are associated with different developmental outcomes; and 3) discovering and understanding profiles of contextual competence. 1. Normative School Transitions The transition into junior high school seems to be far more problematic than the transition into high school. While academic performance drops across both transitions, self-esteem only declines across the transition to junior high school (Seidman et al, 1994, 1996). These changes do not vary as a function of student gender or race/ethnicity. After making the transition to junior high school the students become more disengaged from the educational enterprise: They report increased academic hassles, decreased support from teachers, and reduced extracurricular involvement. Two years after this school transition, these effects are not attenuated. Currently, we are examining the long-term effects, i.e., five years later, of these normative transitions and the potential factors that moderate and mediate these effects, e.g., racial/ethnic identity. As we have begun to look at individual trajectories of self-esteem across the transition to junior high school and beyond, we find that there are seven different patterns of change in self-esteem over time, not one (Seidman & French, 2004). Only two of these self-esteem trajectories experience immediate and dramatic declines in self-esteem across the transition year even though they were relatively high in self-esteem before commencing the transition to junior high school. These two trajectories are not differentiated from the other two trajectories that began high in self-esteem in terms of any personality or individual demographic variables. On the other hand, the students constituting the trajectories that declined dramatically were more likely to reside in under-resourced neighborhoods and families. These families appeared too over taxed to be able to provide the support needed for youth to successfully make this difficult school transition. 2. Holistic Views of Family, Peers, and Neighborhood Settings In a series of studies, we have looked holistically at youth perceived daily hassles, social support, and involvement with family, peer, and neighborhood (Seidman et al., 1998, 1999). Within each setting youth describe a series of dramatically different constellations of perceived transactions. These different constellations of transactions place youth at differential levels of risk/protection, in terms, of self-esteem, depression, and antisocial behavior. When we examine the joint effects of family and peer profiles on self-esteem, we find a strong association between family and peer profiles that are similar, yet peer transactions also partially mediate the association between family transactions and self-esteem (Roberts et al., 2000). 3. Contextual Competence Most recently, we have uncovered nine distinct constellations of youths' behavioral and perceptual self-reports of engagement and performance with peer, school, athletic, employment, cultural, and religious contexts when they are 16 to 17 years of age. We refer to these as profiles of contextual competence (Pedersen et al., under review). Overall, profiles with high engagement in only a single context, such as religion or athletics, do not buffer youths from negative developmental outcomes. Profiles representing high engagement and performance with two or more contexts are associated with higher self-esteem and lower depression. At the same time, profiles marked by high engagement in the risky contexts of athletics or employment are associated with greater delinquency. These results have important implications for planning of services by youth organizations. Using these profiles of contextual competence in conjunction with the youth's time diaries, we plan to examine the association between profile and time use. We also plan to examine the direct and indirect effects of family and peer transactions during early adolescence on the profiles of contextual competence that emerge in middle adolescence. 4. 
Intervention and Policy Our research on school transitions has lead to evidence-based major policy recommendations for educational reform (Seidman, Aber, & French, 2003; Seidman, in preparation). We have found that the transition to the junior high school is riskier than the transition to senior high school because a greater developmental mismatch occurs at the time of the transition to junior high school. That is, early adolescents experience numerous biological, cognitive, emotional, and social changes. These changes occur at a time when students make the shift from an elementary school setting in which all the students and teachers are known to each other to one in which they are shuffled from one unfamiliar teacher and set of classmates to another classroom every 40 minutes. Our findings, in conjunction with other literature, lead us to recommend that: a) more resources and attention be directed toward the organization of schooling during early adolescence; b) ideally, early adolescents should attend K-8 schools; and c) when K-8 schools are not feasible, middle grades schools need to be reorganized into smaller and more stable environments attuned to the developmental needs of early adolescents to maintain their engagement in the educational enterprise.

      (Catherine Tamis-Lemonda, Hiro Yoshikawa, Joshua Aronson, Diane Hughes, co-PIs)

      Niobe Way is a Principal Investigator on a newly funded Center for Research on Development, Culture, and Education. The aim of the Center is to understand the ways in which families, peers, schools, and the Media, influence the academic engagement and performance of New York City children and adolescents. Furthermore, the center aims to examine how these processes vary by culture (i.e., ethnicity, social class, gender, and immigrant status). The research that is being conducted as part of the center involves two cohorts who will be followed over a three year period. The first cohort will involve 18 month old infants who will be followed until they enter school at 4 years of age. The second cohort will involve 6th graders who will be followed through middle school. The methods use to assess the research questions will include standardized measures, indepth interviews, and observations. Children and their parents, as well as teachers and administrators in the schools, will be asked to provide their perspectives on these issues. The Center is funded for five years by the National Science Foundation.

       

      Friendships among Urban Adolescents from Low-Income Families

      Niobe Way is Principal Investigator on two studies of adolescent friendships. One study focuses on high school students and the other focuses on middle school students. Both studies are longitudinal and aim to understand friendship development among urban, African American, Latino, and Asian American adolescents from low-income families.The specific aim of both studies is to understand how adolescents experience their friendships as they go through adolescence, how these friendships change over time, and how contextual influences (e.g., family relationships, school cultures, neighborhood environments) shape the development of adolescent friendships. The studies use both quantitative and qualitative methods. The quantitative methods involve standardized questionnaires, and the qualitative methods involve indepth interviews and participant observations. The high school study (The Connections Project) involves over 150 youth who are being followed over a period of four years. The middle school study (The R.E.A.L. Project) involves approximately 120 youth who are being followed over a period of three years. The studies are funded by The National Science Foundation and The William T. Grant Foundation.

       

      The Predictors, Consequences, and Experiences of Perceived School Climate among Middle School Children (Jean Rhodes, co-PI, Spencer Foundation)

      In collaboration with Dr. Ranjini Reddy and Dr. Peter Mulhall, we are exploring the effects of various aspects of school climate on middle school students’ adjustment. Within this context, we have tested conceptual models of the predictors and multiple effects of teacher support, perceived school climate, and health behavior on self-esteem, depression, and academic outcomes. Additional analyses are underway to determine whether different pathways and trajectories emerge as a function of school ecology and students’ gender, race/ethnicity, and socioeconomic status. The study makes use of data from a three-year longitudinal study of early adolescents from 90 middle schools across Illinois. The students were all attending sixth through eighth grade middle schools. Data were collected at multiple levels including student reports, teacher reports, standardized test scores, and school characteristics.

       

      Parental Socialization of Academic Achievement, Ethnicity and Race, and Peer Relations in African American, Dominican, and Chinese American families

      Niobe Way and Dr.Diane Hughes are collaborating on a grant funded by the William T. Grant foundation. The purpose of this multi-method study is to describe African American, Dominican, and Chinese American parents’ socialization beliefs and goals as these pertain to adolescents’ (a) academic achievement, (b) ethnic and racial experiences and attitudes, and (c) peer relations. The study uses ethnography, in-depth interviewing, and surveys to explore parents’ beliefs and goals and how these beliefs and goals change over time. Approximately 250 parents will be followed over a three-year period as their adolescent children progress through middle school (6th through 8th grade). The adolescent children will be a part of another study (see the description of the CRCDE above.)
