Impacts and Implications for Remote Data Collection in High School Classrooms

School closures during the COVID-19 pandemic introduced significant disruption to educational research in 2020 and into 2021. In-person studies were put on hiatus, abandoned, or converted to remote studies. Data collection for the Discipline in the Secondary Classroom Outcomes (DiSCO) study would normally have been conducted in person but due to school closures the research team pivoted to collect direct assessment and observations in a remote and online format. This presentation was one part of a symposium where researchers shared the challenges with remote data collection and some of the unintended benefits. The purpose of the symposium was to add to the community’s understanding of how to successfully conduct remote research.
