Fuchs, Douglas; And Others – American Educational Research Journal, 1993
A process for readying students to change from special education to regular mathematics classrooms was implemented and validated in a study involving 42 students with mild disabilities in experimental and control groups. Preparation appeared to enhance achievement while in special education, but not in the regular class. (SLD)

Fuchs, Douglas; And Others – 1982
A previous investigation demonstrated that 34 speech- and/or language-impaired preschoolers were more fluent on an expressive language task when tested by familiar examiners than when tested by unfamiliar examiners. Post-hoc analyses were conducted in this study to determine (1) whether subjects' expressive language also was semantically and…

Fuchs, Lynn S.; Fuchs, Douglas; Karns, Kathy; Hamlett, Carol L.; Katzaroff, Michelle; Dutka, Suzanne – American Educational Research Journal, 1997
The effects of a task-focused goals (TFG) treatment in mathematics were studied with low-achieving students with or without learning disabilities. Results with 40 elementary classrooms showed that TFG students enjoyed the approach, but that increased effort was associated with greater learning only for those without learning disabilities. (SLD)

Mathes, Patricia G.; Howard, Jill K.; Allen, Shelley H.; Fuchs, Douglas – Reading Research Quarterly, 1998
Examines the effectiveness of Peer-Assisted Learning Strategies (PALS) for first-grade readers as a tool for enhancing reading achievement of different learner types, particularly low achievers. States that 10 teachers incorporated PALS into their reading program. Indicates all learner types were positively affected by participation in PALS, with…

Fuchs, Douglas – Journal of Special Education, 1979
Investigated the effect of a direct remedial reading program on perceptual motor performance of 119 reading disabled intermediate grade pupils. Comparison of pre- and post-treatment functioning on perceptual motor and reading measures revealed that the gain of Ss in the remedial reading program was significantly greater than the control Ss'…

Fuchs, Douglas; And Others – 1996
A classwide peer tutoring program in reading, implemented at 12 elementary and middle schools in three contiguous districts in the middle of a southern state, was evaluated for its effectiveness with three learner types: low achievers with disabilities, low achievers without disabilities, and learners of average achievement. Twenty teachers…

Fuchs, Lynn S.; Fuchs, Douglas; Karns, Kathy – Elementary School Journal, 2001
Examined the effects of a dyadic peer-mediated treatment on kindergarten children's mathematics development. Found that treatment implementation was strong for most teachers; teachers judged the treatment to be effective and feasible for implementation on their own; and students with and without disabilities, at all points along the achievement…

Fuchs, Lynn S.; Fuchs, Douglas; Kazdan, Sarah – Remedial and Special Education, 1999
This study examined effects of peer-assisted learning strategies (PALS) on students' literacy development and beliefs about reading in nine secondary remedial and special-education classes. Analyses of variance indicated that, compared to control groups, PALS students grew more on reading comprehension and reported more positive beliefs about…

Fuchs, Lynn S.; Fuchs, Douglas; Phillips, Norris B.; Hamlett, Carol L.; Karns, Kathy – School Psychology Review, 1995
Examines the effects of classwide peer-assisted learning strategies (PALS) in mathematics incorporating the use of curriculum-based measurement on acquisition and transfer learning of three types of students (average-achieving student, low-achieving students, and students with a learning disability). Analysis of variance indicates superior…
