Buck, Julie; Torgesen, Joseph – Florida Center for Reading Research, 2018
There is an extensive body of research establishing measures of oral reading fluency as valid and reliable predictors of important reading outcomes and performance on high stakes tests (Good, Simmons, & Kame'enui, 2001). The present study was conducted to determine whether these findings also apply to the Florida Comprehensive Assessment Test…

Barber, Mariah; Cartledge, Gwendolyn; Council, Morris, III; Konrad, Moira; Gardner, Ralph; Telesman, Alana O. – Learning Disabilities: A Contemporary Journal, 2018
This study examined the effects of a novel computer software program, Reading RACES (Relevant and Culturally Engaging Stories), on the oral reading fluency and comprehension of three urban first graders who were English language learners (ELLs) and showed reading/special education risk. The individually administered intervention consisted of…

Brown, Lisa Trottier; Mohr, Kathleen A. J.; Wilcox, Bradley R.; Barrett, Tyson S. – Journal of Educational Research, 2018
This study replicated, with modifications, previous research of dyad reading using texts at various levels of difficulty (Morgan, 1997). The current project measured the effects of using above-grade-level texts on reading achievement and sought to determine the influences of dyad reading on both lead and assisted readers. Results indicate that…

Taylor, Crystal N.; Kilgus, Stephen P.; Huang, Francis – Journal of Applied School Psychology, 2018
In recent years, schools have started implementing preventive practices such as universal screening. Yet, researchers have not evaluated the extent to which universal screening contributes to academic and behavioral outcomes. The purpose of this study was to evaluate the treatment utility of universal screening for behavioral risk. Student…

Chaparro, Erin A.; Stoolmiller, Mike; Park, Yonghan; Baker, Scott K.; Basaraba, Deni; Fien, Hank; Smith, Jean L. Mercier – Assessment for Effective Intervention, 2018
Progress monitoring has been adopted as an integral part of multi-tiered support systems. Oral reading fluency (ORF) is the most established assessment for progress-monitoring purposes. To generate valid trend lines or slopes, ORF passages must be of equivalent difficulty. Recently, however, evidence indicates that ORF passages are not equivalent,…

Coyne, Michael D.; Oldham, Ashley; Dougherty, Shaun M.; Leonard, Kaitlin; Koriakin, Taylor; Gage, Nicholas A.; Burns, Darci; Gillis, Margie – Exceptional Children, 2018
A large body of research supports the efficacy of small group reading interventions for students in Grades K through 3. However, there are few studies evaluating the effects of supplemental Tier-2 intervention implemented within a response to intervention (RTI) or multitiered systems of support (MTSS) framework. The purpose of this study was to…

van Dijk, Wilhelmina – Journal of Special Education Apprenticeship, 2018
Oral Reading Fluency (ORF) is a widely-used index of reading ability in early elementary grades; however, little information exists on predictive value of student characteristics on ORF scores (Wang, Algozzine, Ma, & Porfeli, 2011). A three-step sequential model was used to analyze the influence of student characteristics on scores (N = 2649)…
