The Problem Solving Process: A Single Case Investigation into Procedural Adherence, Teacher Adherence, and Student Outcomes
Webster, Kimberly L.
ProQuest LLC, Ed.D. Dissertation, University of Cincinnati
This study investigated a fourth grade problem solving team, teacher adherence to an intervention, and the effects of the intervention on student performance. This study hypothesized that (a) providing performance feedback to problem solving teams on a 20-item checklist created from the literature increases procedural adherence, (b) creating an intervention adherence sheet for general education teachers increases teacher adherence to intervention procedures, and (c) if a planned intervention for a student is implemented with adherence, student outcomes would improve. The participants for this study were a fourth grade problem solving team (n=7), general education teachers (n=3), targeted students (n=3), and a micro-norm student group (n=3). A single subject AB design revealed that performance feedback to a fourth grade problem solving team increased procedural adherence to the 20-items on the checklist. Additionally, a single subject AB design with an added maintenance phase revealed that when a student with an attention to task concern is provided a Tier 1 intervention with teacher adherence to the intervention, performance may improve. Thus, providing performance feedback to problem solving teams and creating teacher adherence sheets for intervention implementation may increase student outcomes. Furthermore, limitations, implications for research and practice, and suggestions for further research are discussed.
