Skiba, Russell J.; Artiles, Alfredo J.; Kozleski, Elizabeth B.; Losen, Daniel J.; Harry, Elizabeth G. – Educational Researcher, 2016
In this technical comment, we argue that Morgan et al.'s claim that there is no minority overrepresentation in special education is in error due to (a) sampling considerations, (b) inadequate support from previous and current analyses, and (c) their failure to consider the complexities of special education disproportionality. [For Morgan et al.'s…

Specialized assessments, including the learning media assessment (LMA), are essential in appropriately planning and implementing instruction for students with visual impairments (Holbrook et al., 2017; Lusk et al., 2013). The LMA, first introduced by Koenig and Holbrook in the early 1990s, was designed to be an "objective process of…

Fricke et al. and Hagen et al. (2017) each report on large-scale pragmatic randomised controlled trials delivered in schools or nurseries, investigating language interventions for vulnerable children and showing moderate positive effect sizes.

Dzerefos, Cathy M.; de Sousa, Luiza O. – Geography Teacher, 2020
Place-based learning of a community develops from the collective, experiential learning of many generations and is referred to as Indigenous knowledge systems (IKS) (Stevenson 1996; Ajibade 2003). Africa is rich in indigenous knowledge of edible insects and plants which have bolstered communities in times of food shortage (Hunter et al. 2007).…

Youngs, Bonnie L. – Language Learning & Technology, 2021
Learning analytics (LA) offer benefits and challenges for online learning, but prior to collecting data on high-stakes summative assessments as proof of student learning, LA researchers should engage instructors as partners to ensure the quality of course materials through the formative evaluation of individual items (Bienkowski et al., 2012;…

Baccini, Alberto; De Nicolao, Giuseppe – Research Evaluation, 2017
This letter documents some problems in Ancaiani et al. (2015). Namely the evaluation of concordance, based on Cohen's kappa, reported by Ancaiani et al. was not computed on the whole random sample of 9,199 articles, but on a subset of 7,597 articles. The kappas relative to the whole random sample were in the range 0.07-0.15, indicating an…

Miller, Scott D.; Chow, Daryl; Wampold, Bruce E.; Hubble, Mark A.; Del Re, A. C.; Maeschalck, Cynthia; Bargmann, Susanne – High Ability Studies, 2020
In 2014, Macnamara, Hambrick, and Oswald published a meta-analysis of studies questioning the strength of the association between deliberate practice and performance. In this brief report, the correlation reported by Macnamara et al. (2014) is placed in the context of other well-known associations. Additionally, a re-analysis of the studies…

Rogers, Michelle; Hodge, Janie; Counts, Jennifer – TEACHING Exceptional Children, 2020
Although most students with specific learning disabilities (SLD) receive instruction in the general education setting (U.S. Department of Education, 2018), their academic outcomes have been found to be poor. Two evidenced-based practices that improve outcomes for students with SLD are explicit instruction and cognitive and metacognitive strategy…

They provide new and exciting opportunities for education and research. They foster creative thinking and innovation (Preston et al., 2012), and strengthen project management and communication skills (Smith…

Karnes, Jennifer; Barwasser, Anne; Grünke, Matthias – Insights into Learning Disabilities, 2021
There is a significant need for easy-to-implement interventions in the early grades, especially in mathematics, as many children have difficulties in their first years of school with automated basic math facts recall and, therefore, fall behind. Automation of single-digit multiplication tasks represents an important developmental step, as it can…
