Fuchs, Lynn S.; Fuchs, Douglas; Prentice, Karin; Burch, Mindy; Hamlett, Carol L.; Owen, Rhoda; Hosp, Michelle; Jancek, Deborah – Journal of Educational Psychology, 2003
Assesses the effects of explicitly teaching for transfer by broadening the categories by which students group problems requiring the same solution methods and prompting students to search novel problems for these broad categories. This transfer treatment was combined with instruction on solution methods. Improvement on immediate- and near-transfer…

Fuchs, Lynn S.; Fuchs, Douglas; Prentice, Karin; Burch, Mindy; Hamlett, Carol L.; Owen, Rhoda; Schroeter, Katie – Journal of Educational Psychology, 2003
Assesses the contribution of self-regulated learning strategies (SRL), when combined with problem-solving transfer instruction, on 3rd-graders' mathematical problem solving. SRL incorporated goal setting and self-evaluation. Contrasts the effectiveness of transfer plus SRL to the transfer treatment alone and to teacher-designed instruction. SRL…

Compton, Donald L.; Fuchs, Douglas; Fuchs, Lynn S.; Bryant, Joan D. – Journal of Educational Psychology, 2006
Response to intervention (RTI) models for identifying learning disabilities rely on the accurate identification of children who, without Tier 2 tutoring, would develop reading disability (RD). This study examined 2 questions concerning the use of 1st-grade data to predict future RD: (1) Does adding initial word identification fluency (WIF) and 5…

Fuchs, Lynn S.; Fuchs, Douglas; Speece, Deborah L. – Learning Disability Quarterly, 2002
This article examines a 1995 treatment validity model as a framework for identifying learning disabilities. This model: (1) examines both student performance and responsiveness to instruction; (2) delays special education referral until the effects of individual student adaptations in the regular classroom have been explored; and (3) verifies that…

Fuchs, Lynn S.; Fuchs, Douglas – Peabody Journal of Education, 2002
Summarizes research on curriculum-based measurement (CBM) within four strands, providing an overview of studies demonstrating the psychometric tenability of CBM, discussing the body of work showing how teachers can use CBM to inform instructional planning, examining CBM's potential use in evaluating treatment effects, and summarizing work on CBM…

McMaster, Kristen Nyman; Fuchs, Douglas – Learning Disabilities: Research & Practice, 2002
This article reviews 15 research studies published from 1990 to 2000 examining effects of cooperative learning strategies on the academic achievement of students with learning disabilities. Despite design problems, the review finds that cooperative learning strategies that incorporate individual accountability and group rewards are likely to…

Fuchs, Douglas; Fuchs, Lynn S.; Mathes, Patricia G.; Martinez, Elizabeth A. – Learning Disabilities: Research & Practice, 2002
A study collected sociometric data in 39 second- through sixth-grade classrooms, 22 of which were engaged in Peer-Assisted Learning Strategies (PALS), a form of peer tutoring. Students with learning disabilities in PALS classes were more socially accepted than those in no-PALS classes and enjoyed the same social standing as controls. (Contains…

McMaster, Kristen; Fuchs, Douglas; Fuchs, Lynn S.; Compton, Donald L. – Assessment for Effective Intervention, 2002
This article proposes a dual-discrepancy approach to identifying children who do not respond to generally effective reading instruction. Curriculum based measurement is suggested as an effective tool for detecting dual discrepancies and an example is provided from an ongoing program of research that uses the dual-discrepancy approach to identify…

Fuchs, Lynn S.; Fuchs, Douglas; Prentice, Karin; Burch, Mindy; Paulsen, Kim – TEACHING Exceptional Children, 2002
This article describes "Hot Math," a third-grade intervention conducted with small groups of students with disabilities or in inclusive classrooms that fosters mathematical problem solving. Hot Math integrates two promising practices to promote mathematical problem solving, explicit instruction about transfer and self-regulation strategies.…

Fuchs, Lynn S.; Fuchs, Douglas – Journal of Learning Disabilities, 2002
A study investigated the mathematical problem-solving abilities of 18 fourth-graders with mathematics disabilities (MD) with and without comorbid reading disabilities (RD). Results demonstrated large deficits for both groups. However, the differences between students with and without RD were mediated by the level of problem solving and by…

Fuchs, Lynn S.; Fuchs, Douglas; Hamlett, Carol L.; Appleton, Amanda C. – Learning Disabilities: Research & Practice, 2002
A small-group mathematical problem-solving tutorial treatment with explicit instruction including transfer to novel problems was evaluated with 40 students. On word problems and transfer word problems, tutoring effected reliably stronger growth, although effects on real-world problem solving, while moderate to large, were not statistically…

Al Otaiba, Stephanie; Fuchs, Douglas – Remedial and Special Education, 2002
A review of the literature on young children unresponsive to generally effective literacy instruction focuses on 23 studies. It found a majority of unresponsive students had phonological awareness deficits. Also common were phonological retrieval or encoding deficits, low verbal ability, behavior problems, and developmental delays. Methodological…

Fuchs, Douglas; Fuchs, Lynn S.; Thompson, Anneke; Al Otaiba, Stephanie; Yen, Loulee; Yang, Nancy J.; Braun, Mary; O'Connor, Rollanda E. – Exceptional Children, 2002
A study explored the effectiveness and feasibility of phonological awareness (PA) training with and without beginning decoding components for 25 kindergartners with disabilities in inclusive schools. Students with special needs participating in PA with beginning decoding instruction did better than those just receiving PA and controls. (Contains…

Fuchs, Lynn S.; Fuchs, Douglas; Yazdian, Laura; Powell, Sarah R. – School Psychology Review, 2002
Examines the effects of a dyadic peer-mediated treatment, Peer-Assisted Learning Strategies (PALS), on first-grade children's mathematics development. Results indicated that treatment implementation was strong; teachers judged PALS to be effective and generally feasible; and students with and without disabilities, at all points along the…

Fuchs, Douglas; Fuchs, Lynn S.; Mathes, Patricia G.; Lipsey, Mark W.; Roberts, P. Holley – 2001
This paper reports the results of a study that investigated the reading differences between students who were low achieving, both with and without the label of learning disabilities (LD). Seventy-nine studies were chosen to calculate reading performance differences between low achievers with and without the LD label. The substantive and…
