Hitchcock, John H.; Horner, Robert H.; Kratochwill, Thomas R.; Levin, Joel R.; Odom, Samuel L.; Rindskopf, David M.; Shadish, William R.
Remedial and Special Education, v35 n3 p145-152 May-Jun 2014
In this article, we respond to Wolery's critique of the What Works Clearinghouse (WWC) pilot "Standards," which were developed by the current authors. We do so to provide additional information and clarify some points previously summarized in this journal. We also respond to several concerns raised by Maggin, Briesch, and Chafouleas after they applied the "Standards" to a single-case design synthesis published in this journal. The overall purpose of this response is to clarify what the "Standards" are designed to accomplish and to offer our views about future revisions.
