O'Keeffe, Breda V.; Bundock, Kaitlin; Kladis, Kristin L.; Yan, Rui; Nelson, Kat – Remedial and Special Education, 2017
Previous research on curriculum-based measurement of oral reading fluency (CBM ORF) found high levels of variability around the estimates of students' fluency; however, little research has studied the issue of variability specifically with well-designed passage sets and a sample of students who scored below benchmark for the purpose of progress…

Schaughency, Elizabeth; Suggate, Sebastian; Reese, Elaine – Australian Journal of Learning Difficulties, 2017
We examined earlier oral narrative and decoding and later reading in two samples spanning the first four years of reading instruction. The Year 1 sample (n = 44) was initially assessed after one year of instruction (M = 6; 1 years) and followed through their third year (M = 8; 1 years); the Year 2 sample (n = 34) assessed after two years of…

Woods-Groves, Suzanne; Hua, Youjia; Ford, Jeremy W.; Neil, Katelyn M. – Education and Training in Autism and Developmental Disabilities, 2017
In this study we investigated an editing strategy to develop effective proofreading skills (i.e., mechanics and substantive revisions) within electronic texts through an experimental pre- and posttest group design with random assignment. Fifteen college students with intellectual and developmental disabilities participated in this investigation.…

Wanzek, Jeanne; Petscher, Yaacov; Otaiba, Stephanie Al; Rivas, Brenna K.; Jones, Francesca G.; Kent, Shawn C.; Schatschneider, Christopher; Mehta, Paras – Journal of Educational Psychology, 2017
Research examining effective reading interventions for students with reading difficulties in the upper elementary grades is limited relative to the information available for the early elementary grades. In the current study, we examined the effects of a multicomponent reading intervention for students with reading comprehension difficulties. We…

Snyder, Elise; Golightly, Amy F. – Education, 2017
Reading is a skill that is necessary to be successful both academically and professionally in today's society. Thus, it is essential that educators work with students to develop their reading skills and help them become proficient readers (Otto, 2008). This study concurrently implemented a phonics-based reading intervention and a sight-word…

Rosenthal, Julie L.; Donnantuono, Marie; Lebron, Mary; Flynn, Christina – School-University Partnerships, 2017
This paper reports the effects on children, teacher candidates, and classroom teachers of a PDS-based initial certification course in the teaching of literacy. In this course, teacher candidates work with individual struggling readers on a range of literacy tasks, and the classroom teacher and university faculty member serve as course…

Austin, Christy R.; Vaughn, Sharon; McClelland, Amanda M. – Learning Disability Quarterly, 2017
A subset of students fail to respond adequately to reading interventions. This synthesis systematically reviews studies in which students in grades K-3 responded inadequately to a Tier 2 reading intervention and were provided with a Tier 3 intervention. Descriptions of the Tier 3 reading interventions and effects are provided. To meet inclusion…

Oslund, Eric L.; Hagan-Burke, Shanna; Simmons, Deborah C.; Clemens, Nathan H.; Simmons, Leslie E.; Taylor, Aaron B.; Kwok, Oi-man; Coyne, Michael D. – Journal of Learning Disabilities, 2017
This study examined the predictive validity of formative assessments embedded in a Tier 2 intervention curriculum for kindergarten students identified as at risk for reading difficulty. We examined when (i.e., months during the school year) measures could predict reading outcomes gathered at the end of kindergarten and whether the predictive…

Mooney, Paul; Lastrapes, Renée E. – Assessment for Effective Intervention, 2016
The amount of research evaluating the technical merits of general outcome measures of science and social studies achievement is growing. This study targeted criterion validity for critical content monitoring. Questions addressed the concurrent criterion validity of alternate presentation formats of critical content monitoring and the measure's…

Ball, Carrie R.; O'Connor, Edward – Assessment for Effective Intervention, 2016
This study examined the predictive validity and classification accuracy of two commonly used universal screening measures relative to a statewide achievement test. Results indicated that second-grade performance on oral reading fluency and the Measures of Academic Progress (MAP), together with special education status, explained 68% of the…

Trainin, Guy; Hayden, H. Emily; Wilson, Kathleen; Erickson, Joan – Journal of Research on Educational Effectiveness, 2016
National reports reveal one third of American fourth graders read below basic level on measures of comprehension. One critical component of comprehension is fluency: rapid, accurate, expressive reading with automaticity and prosody. Many fluency studies and classroom interventions focus only on reading rate, but this alone is not sufficient. This…
