Tighe, Elizabeth L.; Schatschneider, Christopher – Journal of Learning Disabilities, 2016
The current study employed a meta-analytic approach to investigate the relative importance of component reading skills to reading comprehension in struggling adult readers. A total of 10 component skills were consistently identified across 16 independent studies and 2,707 participants. Random effects models generated 76 predictor-reading…

Tighe, Elizabeth L.; Schatschneider, Christopher – Journal of Learning Disabilities, 2016
The purpose of this study was to investigate the joint and unique contributions of morphological awareness and vocabulary knowledge at five reading comprehension levels in adult basic education (ABE) students. We introduce the statistical technique of multiple quantile regression, which enabled us to assess the predictive utility of morphological…

Tighe, Elizabeth L.; Spencer, Mercedes; Schatschneider, Christopher – Reading Psychology, 2015
This study rank ordered the contributive importance of several predictors of listening comprehension for third, seventh, and tenth graders. Principal components analyses revealed that a three-factor solution with fluency, reasoning, and working memory components provided the best fit across grade levels. Dominance analyses indicated that fluency…

Petscher, Yaacov; Schatschneider, Christopher – Journal of Educational Measurement, 2011
Research by Huck and McLean (1975) demonstrated that the covariance-adjusted score is more powerful than the simple difference score, yet recent reviews indicate researchers are equally likely to use either score type in two-wave randomized experimental designs. A Monte Carlo simulation was conducted to examine the conditions under which the…

Logan, Jessica A. R.; Schatschneider, Christopher – Reading and Writing: An Interdisciplinary Journal, 2014
Reading ability is comprised of several component processes. In particular, the connection between the visual and verbal systems has been demonstrated to play an important role in the reading process. The present study provides a review of the existing literature on the visual verbal connection as measured by two tasks, rapid serial naming and…

Little, Callie W.; Hart, Sara A.; Schatschneider, Christopher; Taylor, Jeanette – Journal of Learning Disabilities, 2016
Previous literature has indicated an important association between reading comprehension and both attention-deficit/hyperactivity disorder (ADHD) and homework habits. This investigation sought to extend previous knowledge by providing information about how ADHD and homework behavior (i.e., completing homework regularly) may jointly influence…

Hart, Sara A.; Taylor, Jeanette; Schatschneider, Christopher – Assessment for Effective Intervention, 2013
This study introduces a co-twin control method commonly used in the medical literature but not often within educational research. This method allows for a comparison of twins discordant for an "exposure," approximating alternative outcomes in the counterfactual model. Example analyses use data drawn from the Florida Twin Project on Reading to…

Tighe, Elizabeth L.; Wagner, Richard K.; Schatschneider, Christopher – Reading and Writing: An Interdisciplinary Journal, 2015
This study demonstrates the utility of applying a causal indicator modeling framework to investigate important predictors of reading comprehension in third, seventh, and tenth grade students. The results indicated that a 4-factor multiple indicator multiple indicator cause (MIMIC) model of reading comprehension provided adequate fit at each grade…
