Tindal, Gerald – 2002
This report discusses the findings of a study that investigated the effectiveness of using a videotaped, read-aloud mathematics test for students with disabilities. In the study, a mathematics test was read aloud using a videotaped presentation in which problems were presented singly, in a paced format, and with visual prompting of the answer…

Helwig, Robert; Rozek-Tedesco, Marick A.; Tindal, Gerald – Journal of Special Education, 2002
Students (n=1,343) were administered either a standard format mathematics test or one in which questions were read aloud. Performance of students with learning disabilities (LD) was compared to others on specific "difficult reading" items. Elementary school students with LD (but not middle school students with LD or general education students)…

Helwig, Robert; Tindal, Gerald – Assessment for Effective Intervention, 2002
Four alternate versions of a 15-item general outcome measure (GOM) of mathematics conceptual understanding and applications were developed and administered to 117 eighth-graders. Results were correlated with scores on state multiple-choice mathematics achievement tests. Correlations ranged from .81 to .87 with no significant differences, offering…

Helwig, Robert; Anderson, Lisbeth; Tindal, Gerald – Journal of Special Education, 2002
An 11-item math concept curriculum-based measure (CBM) was administered to 171 eighth grade students. Scores were correlated with scores from a computer adaptive test designed in conjunction with the state to approximate the official statewide mathematics achievement tests. Correlations for general education students and students with learning…

Crawford, Lindy; Tindal, Gerald; Stieber, Steve – Educational Assessment, 2001
Used a curriculum-based measurement (CBM) of reading aloud from narrative passages to predict performance on statewide achievement tests in reading and mathematics. Results for 51 students (third graders in the second year of the study) provide initial support for the use of timed oral readings to predict students' performance on statewide…

Helwig, Robert; Anderson, Lisbeth; Tindal, Gerald – Journal of Educational Research, 2001
Third and fifth grade teachers rated the mathematical skill level, classroom behavior, and effort of their students, most of whom had completed mathematics and reading achievement tests. Results indicated that mathematics and reading achievement test scores, together with student effort, were significant predictors of teacher rating of mathematics…

Hollenbeck, Keith; Rozek-Tedesco, Marick A.; Tindal, Gerald; Glasgow, Aaron – Journal of Special Education Technology, 2000
This study examined whether a teacher-paced video (TPV) accommodation or a student-paced computer (SPC) accommodation provided differential access for student with disabilities versus their general education peers on a large-scale math test. It found that although both pacing accommodations significantly influenced mean scores, the SPC…

Goldman, Paul; Tindal, Gerald; McCullum, Nancy; Marr, Jerry – 1999
Gareth Morgan's "Images of Organization" introduces readers to "holographic organization" and explores his concepts of connectivity and redundancy, simultaneous specialization and generalization, minimum critical specification, and self-organization. This paper attempts to put these concepts into operation successfully by using data, surveys,…

Tindal, Gerald; Heath, Bill; Hollenbeck, Keith; Almond, Patricia; Harniss, Mark – 1998
In this study, fourth-grade special education students (n=78) and general education students (n=403) took a large-scale statewide test using standard test administration procedure and two major accommodations addressing response conditions and test administration. On both reading and math tests, students bubbled in answers on a separate sheet (the…

Tindal, Gerald; And Others – 1982
Using 660 elementary school students from six school districts as subjects, a study examined student performance in reading aloud from four different reading curricula (Houghton Mifflin; Ginn 720; Holt, Rinehart & Winston; and Scott, Foresman), and the sensitivity of scores within each curriculum to growth across grade levels. Three different…

Tindal, Gerald; And Others – 1982
The Pine County Model on special education delivery is based on simple, curriculum-based data. Five decisions are at the center of the model: problem selection, program selection, program operationalization, program improvement, and program certification. At each stage of the decision making process, student performance data are gathered using the…
