Giangreco, Michael F.; And Others – Journal of Special Education, 1997

Five special educators (Michael F. Giangreco, Martha E. Snell, Carolyn Hughes, Asha Jitendra, and Sandra Alper) respond to a review in the same issue by John Nietupski and others entitled "A Review of Curricular Research in Severe Disabilities From 1976 to 1995 in Six Selected Journals." Each respondent raises additional aspects of curriculum for…

Sood, Sheetal; Jitendra, Asha K. – Journal of Learning Disabilities, 2013

This study examined the effectiveness of a number sense program on kindergarten students' number proficiency and responsiveness to treatment as a function of students' risk for mathematics difficulties. The program targeted development of relationships among numbers (e.g., spatial, more and less). A total of 101 kindergarten students (not at risk:…

Jitendra, Asha K. – Journal of Educational Research, 2011

This article presents the author's response to Yan Ping Xin and Dake Zhang's recent critical evaluation of her and colleagues' work in "Exploring a Conceptual Model-Based Approach to Teaching Situated Word Problems," published in "The Journal of Educational Research" in 2009 (Vol. 102, No. 6). Most critiques of prior research are written in a fair…

Leh, Jayne M.; Jitendra, Asha K. – Learning Disability Quarterly, 2013

This study compared the effectiveness of computer-mediated instruction (CMI) and teacher-mediated instruction (TMI) on the word problem-solving performance of students struggling in mathematics. Both conditions integrated cognitive modeling that focused on the problem structure using visual representations with critical instructional elements…

Jitendra, Asha K.; Star, Jon R. – Learning and Individual Differences, 2012

This study evaluated whether schema-based instruction (SBI), a promising method for teaching students to represent and solve mathematical word problems, impacted the learning of percent word problems. Of particular interest was the extent that SBI improved high- and low-achieving students' learning and to a lesser degree on the indirect effect of…

Jitendra, Asha K.; Burgess, Clare; Gajria, Meenakshi – Exceptional Children, 2011

Educators have widely used cognitive strategy instruction to address reading comprehension deficits evidenced by students with learning disabilities. However, no one has yet conducted a review of the quality of this literature. This review applies the quality indicators advocated by Gersten et al. (2005) and Horner et al. (2005) to evaluate the…

Jitendra, Asha K.; Star, Jon R. – Theory Into Practice, 2011

This article discusses schema-based instruction (SBI) as an alternative to traditional instruction for enhancing the mathematical problem solving performance of students with learning disabilities (LD). In the authors' most recent research and developmental efforts, they designed SBI to meet the needs of middle school students with LD in inclusive…

Jitendra, Asha K.; Corroy, Kelly Cozine; Dupuis, Danielle N. – Learning Disabilities: A Multidisciplinary Journal, 2013

The purposes of this study were (a) to evaluate differences in arithmetic word problem solving between high and low at-risk students for mathematics difficulties (MD) and (b) to assess the influence of attention, behavior, reading, and socio-economic status (SES) in predicting the word problem solving performance of third-grade students with MD.…

Jitendra, Asha K.; Dupuis, Danielle N.; Rodriguez, Michael C. – Society for Research on Educational Effectiveness, 2012

The present research assessed the efficacy of two tutoring protocols for improving the mathematics outcomes of at-risk third-grade students. Results indicated that students in the schema-based instruction (SBI) group outperformed students in the control group on word problem solving performance after 30 hours of problem-solving experience, but the…

Griffin, Cynthia C.; Jitendra, Asha K. – Journal of Educational Research, 2009

The authors examined the effectiveness of strategy instruction taught by general educators in mixed-ability classrooms. Specifically, the authors compared the mathematical word problem-solving performance and computational skills of students who received schema-based instruction (SBI) with students who received general strategy instruction (GSI).…

Sood, Sheetal; Jitendra, Asha K. – Journal of Special Education, 2007

This study compared number sense instruction in three first-grade traditional mathematics textbooks and one reform-based textbook ("Everyday Mathematics" [EM]). Textbooks were evaluated with regard to their adherence to principles of effective instruction (e.g., big ideas, conspicuous instruction). The results indicated that traditional textbooks…

Jitendra, Asha K. – Learning Disabilities Research & Practice, 2005

In this commentary, I summarize my own research with colleagues to affirm Dr. Gersten's call for considering design experiments prior to conducting intervention research. I describe how design experiments not only can inform teaching and the learning of innovative approaches, but also hold the promise of effectively bridging the…

Jitendra, Asha K.; Lein, Amy E.; Star, Jon R.; Dupuis, Danielle N. – Educational Research and Evaluation, 2013

This study explored the extent to which domain-specific knowledge predicted proportional word problem-solving performance. We tested 411 seventh-grade students on conceptual and procedural fraction knowledge, conceptual and procedural proportion knowledge, and proportional word problem solving. Multiple regression analyses indicated that all four…

Jitendra, Asha K.; Star, Jon R.; Dupuis, Danielle N.; Rodriguez, Michael C. – Journal of Research on Educational Effectiveness, 2013

This study examined the effect of schema-based instruction (SBI) on 7th-grade students' mathematical problem-solving performance. SBI is an instructional intervention that emphasizes the role of mathematical structure in word problems and also provides students with a heuristic to self-monitor and aid problem solving. Using a…

Jitendra, Asha – TEACHING Exceptional Children, 2002

This article describes using a graphic representation technique to teach students with learning disabilities to be effective problem-solvers. It discusses the key aspects of this instruction, shows how to use the strategy for solving word problems, and discusses how to assess students' problem-solving performance. Examples are provided. (Contains…
