Hwang, Sophia H. J.; Cappella, Elise – Journal of Research on Educational Effectiveness, 2018
Grade retention, the practice of requiring a student to remain in the same grade the following year, disproportionately affects students with sociodemographic risk and facing academic challenges. Each year, the United States spends $20 billion on retention and two million children are retained. Extant studies examining early elementary grade…

Short, Nathan; Best, Sara; Bhowmick, Ankan; Brenner, Danielle; Cundall, Corey; Farmer, Melissa; Patel, Monal; Ross, Mitchell – Journal of Occupational Therapy, Schools & Early Intervention, 2018
Use of iPad technology in the classroom may facilitate learning, engagement, motivation, and interest (Crescenzi, Jewitt, & Price, 2014). The Dexteria™ iPad application was implemented into first grade curriculum using a nonequivalent control group design to explore impact on visual-motor integration (VMI) skills using the Beery-Buktenica…

Donica, Denise K.; Massengill, Meghan; Gooden, Mary Jessup – Journal of Occupational Therapy, Schools & Early Intervention, 2018
Literature has indicated conflicting results regarding the relationship between grasp patterns and legible handwriting. Historically, the dynamic tripod grasp was viewed as the gold standard, but more recent literature indicates that grasp may not have as much of an effect on handwriting legibility as once thought. The purpose of this study is to…

Saleem, Ghazala T.; Gillen, Glen – Journal of Occupational Therapy, Schools & Early Intervention, 2018
Handwriting dysfunction can negatively impact a child's occupational performance. Data supporting handwriting interventions are limited, and a need exists for evidence-based handwriting interventions to enhance a child's functional performance and participation in meaningful occupations. This pilot study examined the relationship between the…

McIlraith, Autumn L. – Journal of Research in Reading, 2018
Predictors of early word reading are well established. However, it is unclear if these predictors hold for readers across a range of word reading abilities. This study used quantile regression to investigate predictive relationships at different points in the distribution of word reading. Quantile regression analyses used preschool and…

Kim, Yeonwoo; Calzada, Esther J.; Barajas-Gonzalez, R. Gabriela; Huang, Keng-Yen; Brotman, Laurie M.; Castro, Ashley; Pichardo, Catherine – Journal of Educational Psychology, 2018
Early academic achievement has been shown to predict high school completion, but there have been few studies of the predictors of early academic success focused on Latino students. Using longitudinal data from 750 Mexican and Dominican American families, this study examined a cultural model of parenting and early academic achievement. While Latino…

Moore, Kara N.; Lampinen, James M.; Gallo, David A.; Adams, Eryn J.; Bridges, Ana J. – Child Development, 2018
This is the first reported study of children's use of two metacognitive strategies, recollection rejection and diagnostic monitoring, to reject misinformation. Recollection rejection involves the retrieval of details that disqualify an event, whereas diagnostic monitoring involves the failure to retrieve expected details. First (n = 56, age…

Casey, Beth M.; Lombardi, Caitlin M.; Thomson, Dana; Nguyen, Hoa Nha; Paz, Melissa; Theriault, Cote A.; Dearing, Eric – Child Development, 2018
The primary goal in this study was to examine maternal support of numerical concepts at 36 months as predictors of math achievement at 4.5 and 6-7 years. Observational measures of mother-child interactions (n = 140) were used to examine type of support for numerical concepts. Maternal support that involved labeling the quantities of sets of…

Uchikoshi, Yuuko; Yang, Lu; Liu, Siwei – Reading and Writing: An Interdisciplinary Journal, 2018
This longitudinal study examined the role of narrative skills in English reading comprehension, after controlling for vocabulary and decoding, with a sample of 112 dual language learners (DLLs), including both Spanish-English and Cantonese-English children. Decoding, vocabulary, and narrative samples were collected in the winter of first grade and…

Osana, Helena P.; Przednowek, Katarzyna; Cooperman, Allyson; Adrien, Emmanuelle – Journal of Experimental Education, 2018
The effects of prior encodings of manipulatives (red and blue plastic chips) on children's ability to use them as representations of quantity were tested. First graders (N = 73) were assigned to four conditions in which the encoding of plastic chips was experimentally manipulated. All children then participated in an addition activity that relied…

Erbeli, Florina; Hart, Sara A.; Wagner, Richard K.; Taylor, Jeanette – Scientific Studies of Reading, 2018
A fairly recent definition of reading disability (RD) is that in the form of a hybrid model. The model views RD as a latent construct that is manifested through various observable unexpected impairments in reading-related skills and through inadequate response to intervention. The current report evaluated this new conceptualization of RD from an…

Coker, David L., Jr.; Jennings, Austin S.; Farley-Ripple, Elizabeth; MacArthur, Charles A. – Journal of Educational Psychology, 2018
Previous research has demonstrated that writing instruction can support reading achievement (Graham & Hebert, 2011); however much of this work involved carefully designed interventions. In this study, we evaluated a conceptual framework of the direct and indirect effects of typical writing instruction and student writing practice on reading…

Mulé, Christina M.; Daniels, Brian; Volpe, Robert J.; Briesch, Amy M.; Joseph, Laurice M.; Harris, Kristin; Silwinski, Samantha; Leslie, Laurel K. – Journal of Behavioral Education, 2018
Traditional drill and practice (TDP) has been shown to be both effective and efficient for increasing word recognition. WordSheets (WS) is a novel drill procedure similar to TDP with two key differences: (a) WS increases opportunities to respond, which may increase efficiency and (b) WS present instructional stimuli in a context that more closely…

Parker, David C.; Burns, Matthew K.; McMaster, Kristen L.; Al Otaiba, Stephanie; Medhanie, Amanuel – Assessment for Effective Intervention, 2018
The current study determined growth patterns during an 8-week writing intervention and then examined the association between growth pattern and students' initial skills as determined by instructional-level data. One hundred forty-seven first-grade students struggling with early literacy skills received a writing intervention at one of two tiers of…

Rumberger, Alyson – Phi Delta Kappan, 2018
Leveled reading, in which students select "just right" books based on their assessed reading level, has become a significant part of elementary reading instruction. However, libraries remain places where students can select books to read outside their reading levels. Based on observations of 1st-grade students, the author describes how…
