Cheatham, Jennifer P.; Allor, Jill H.; Roberts, J. Kyle – Learning Disability Quarterly, 2014
This study examined the impact of independent practice of multiple-criteria text that targeted high-frequency words, decodability, and meaningfulness. Second-grade students, including at-risk students, were randomly assigned within classroom to a treatment group that read multiple-criteria text ("n" = 34), or contrast group that read…

Bowen, William G.; Chingos, Matthew M.; Lack, Kelly A.; Nygren, Thomas I. – Journal of Policy Analysis and Management, 2014
Online instruction is quickly gaining in importance in U.S. higher education, but little rigorous evidence exists as to its effect on student learning. We measure the effect on learning outcomes of a prototypical interactive learning online statistics course by randomly assigning students on six public university campuses to take the course in a…

Case, Lisa; Speece, Deborah; Silverman, Rebecca; Schatschneider, Christopher; Montanaro, Elizabeth; Ritchey, Kristen – Journal of Research on Educational Effectiveness, 2014
This research investigated the immediate and long-term effects of a Tier 2 intervention for beginning readers identified as having a high probability of reading failure using a randomized control trial. First-grade participants (n = 123) were randomly assigned either to a 25-session intervention targeting key reading components, including…

Johnson, Valerie L.; Simon, Patricia; Mun, Eun-Young – Journal of Educational Research, 2014
The authors investigated the impact of a manualized high school transition program, the Peer Group Connection (PGC) program, on the graduation rate at a low-income, Mid-Atlantic high school. The program utilized 12th-grade student peer leaders to create a supportive environment for incoming ninth-grade students. Results of a randomized control…

Duff, Fiona J.; Hulme, Charles; Grainger, Katy; Hardwick, Samantha J.; Miles, Jeremy N. V.; Snowling, Margaret J. – Journal of Child Psychology and Psychiatry, 2014
Background: Intervention studies for children at risk of dyslexia have typically been delivered preschool, and show short-term effects on letter knowledge and phoneme awareness, with little transfer to literacy. Methods: This randomised controlled trial evaluated the effectiveness of a reading and language intervention for 6-year-old children…

Lesaux, Nonie K.; Kieffer, Michael J.; Kelley, Joan G.; Harris, Julie Russ – American Educational Research Journal, 2014
We conducted a randomized field trial to test an academic vocabulary intervention designed to bolster the language and literacy skills of linguistically diverse sixth-grade students (N = 2,082; n = 1,469 from a home where English is not the primary language), many demonstrating low achievement, enrolled in 14 urban middle schools. The 20-week…

Montague, Marjorie; Krawec, Jennifer; Enders, Craig; Dietz, Samantha – Journal of Educational Psychology, 2014
The effects of a mathematical problem-solving intervention on students' problem-solving performance and math achievement were measured in a randomized control trial with 1,059 7th-grade students. The intervention, "Solve It!," is a research-based cognitive strategy instructional intervention that was shown to improve the problem-solving…

Marquez, Brion; Marquez, Jessie; Vincent, Claudia G.; Pennefather, Jordan; Sprague, Jeffrey R.; Smolkowski, Keith; Yeaton, Pamela – Education and Treatment of Children, 2014
We describe the development and initial evaluation of the efficacy of "We Have Skills!" (WHS), a video-based social skills instructional program for early elementary school students. The components of WHS were designed to be scientifically sound, maximally useful to elementary school teachers, and effective in increasing students' social…

Rohrer, Doug; Dedrick, Robert F.; Burgess, Kaleena – Grantee Submission, 2014
Most mathematics assignments consist of a group of problems requiring the same strategy. For example, a lesson on the quadratic formula is typically followed by a block of problems requiring students to use the quadratic formula, which means that students know the appropriate strategy before they read each problem. In an alternative approach,…

Hansen, Blake D.; Wills, Howard P.; Kamps, Debra M.; Greenwood, Charles R. – Journal of Emotional and Behavioral Disorders, 2014
Children with emotional and behavioral disorders (E/BD) struggle to achieve social and academic outcomes. Many studies have demonstrated self-management interventions to be effective at reducing problem behavior and increasing positive social and academic behaviors. Functional behavior assessment (FBA) information may be used in designing…
