Fuchs, Lynn S.; Fuchs, Douglas; Hamlett, Carol L. – Reading and Writing: An Interdisciplinary Journal, 2007
The focus of this article is recent CBM work that incorporates diagnostic reading assessment. The goal is to help general and special educators tailor more effective reading instruction for developing readers. The development process for this CBM diagnostic reading assessment is described; the resulting assessment is presented; and preliminary…

Morgan, Paul L.; Fuchs, Douglas – Exceptional Children, 2007
Young children who enjoy reading do it more often and they tend to become skilled at it. Poor readers, by contrast, often display low motivation to read. One possible explanation of this is that reading skill and reading motivation influence each other. 15 studies were reviewed addressing the relationship between young children's reading and…

McMaster, Kristen L.; Fuchs, Douglas; Fuchs, Lynn S. – Learning Disabilities: A Contemporary Journal, 2007
This article provides an overview of Peer-Assisted Learning Strategies (PALS) for reading. First, specific activities and research supporting PALS for Grades 2 through 6, High School, Kindergarten, and First Grade are described. Then, research addressing the characteristics of students who have not responded to PALS, as well as approaches to…

Fuchs, Douglas; Compton, Donald L.; Fuchs, Lynn S.; Bryant, Joan; Davis, G. Nicole – Reading and Writing: An Interdisciplinary Journal, 2008
Responsiveness-to-intervention (RTI) is a method for both preventing and helping to identify learning disabilities. An important feature is its multi-tier structure: "primary intervention" (tier 1) refers to classroom instruction; "secondary intervention" (tier 2) usually involves more intensive pullout, small-group…

Sideridis, Georgios D.; Morgan, Paul L.; Botsas, George; Padeliadu, Susana; Fuchs, Douglas – Journal of Learning Disabilities, 2006
We examined how strongly motivation, metacognition, and psychopathology acted as predictors of learning disabilities (LD). The results from five studies suggested that level of motivation (as shown through self-efficacy, motivational force, task avoidance, goal commitment, or self-concept) was highly accurate in classifying students with or at…

Al Otaiba, Stephanie; Fuchs, Douglas – Journal of Learning Disabilities, 2006
The primary purpose of this study was to identify student characteristics that reliably predict responsiveness and nonresponsiveness to generally effective early literacy interventions. Participants were 104 children, including 7 with special needs and Individualized Education Programs (IEPs), who were tested in kindergarten and first grade.…

Mcmaster, Kristen L.; Fuchs, Douglas; Fuchs, Lynn S. – Reading & Writing Quarterly, 2006
This paper reviews research evaluating the effectiveness of Peer-Assisted Learning Strategies (PALS) for reading. Nearly fifteen years of research has demonstrated the effectiveness of this classwide peer tutoring program in improving the reading performance of high-, average-, and low-performing students, including students with disabilities,…

Fuchs, Lynn S.; Fuchs, Douglas – School Psychology Review, 2006
Within the context of a multilayered prevention system, responsiveness to intervention (RTI) integrates increasingly intensive instruction and, at each layer, employs assessment to identify students who are inadequately responsive and who therefore require intervention at the next, more intensive layer in the system. Over the past decade, RTI has…

Fuchs, Douglas; Fuchs, Lynn S. – Reading Research Quarterly, 2006
On December 3, 2004, President Bush signed into law the Individuals with Disabilities Education Improvement Act (IDEA, 2004). The revised law is different from the previous version in at least one important respect. Whereas practitioners were previously encouraged to use IQ-achievement discrepancy to identify children with learning disabilities…

Fuchs, Douglas; Young, Caresa L. – Exceptional Children, 2006
There is increasingly negative sentiment against IQ-achievement discrepancy as a method to identify children with learning disabilities (LD) and, more broadly, intelligence as an explanation of poor academic performance. The evidence for this latter view was examined by reviewing 13 studies involving 1,542 children who were at risk or reading…

Fuchs, Lynn S.; Fuchs, Douglas; Compton, Donald L.; Powell, Sarah R.; Seethaler, Pamela M.; Capizzi, Andrea M.; Schatschneider, Christopher; Fletcher, Jack M. – Journal of Educational Psychology, 2006
The purpose of this study was to examine the cognitive correlates of RD-grade skill in arithmetic, algorithmic computation, and arithmetic word problems. Third graders (N = 312) were measured on language, nonverbal problem solving, concept formation, processing speed, long-term memory, working memory, phonological decoding, and sight word…

Fuchs, Lynn S.; Fuchs, Douglas; Hamlet, Carol L.; Powell, Sarah R.; Capizzi, Andrea M.; Seethaler, Pamela M. – Journal of Learning Disabilities, 2006
The purpose of this pilot study was to assess the potential for computer-assisted instruction (CAI) to enhance number combination skill among children with concurrent risk for math disability and reading disability. A secondary purpose was to examine the effects of CAI on spelling. At-risk students were assigned randomly to math or spelling CAI,…

Stecker, Pamela M.; Fuchs, Lynn S.; Fuchs, Douglas – Psychology in the Schools, 2005
This review examines the efficacy of curriculum-based measurement (CBM) as an assessment methodology for enhancing student achievement. We describe experimental-contrast studies in reading and mathematics in which teachers used CBM to monitor student progress and to make instructional decisions. Overall, teachers' use of CBM produced significant…

Dion, Eric; Fuchs, Douglas; Fuchs, Lynn S. – Behavioral Disorders, 2005
This experimental study examined the influence of a classwide peer-tutoring reading program (Peer-Assisted Learning Strategies; PALS) on the quality of social relationships of elementary school children. Using a sociometric procedure, social preference and friendships were evaluated before and after the PALS program. Overall (mean) and…
