Erbeli, Florina; Hart, Sara A.; Wagner, Richard K.; Taylor, Jeanette – Scientific Studies of Reading, 2018
A fairly recent definition of reading disability (RD) is that in the form of a hybrid model. The model views RD as a latent construct that is manifested through various observable unexpected impairments in reading-related skills and through inadequate response to intervention. The current report evaluated this new conceptualization of RD from an…

Splett, Joni W.; Trainor, Kathryn M.; Raborn, Anthony; Halliday-Boykins, Colleen A.; Garzona, Marlene E.; Dongo, Melissa D.; Weist, Mark D. – Behavioral Disorders, 2018
Despite schools increasingly adopting multitiered systems of support (MTSS) for prevention and intervention of mental health concerns, many are slow to adopt universal mental health screening (UMHS), a core MTSS feature, due to concerns about their limited capacity to meet the needs of all identified. In this study, we examined differences in the…

Griffin, Cynthia C.; Dana, Nancy F.; Pape, Stephen J.; Algina, James; Bae, Jungah; Prosser, Sherri K.; League, Martha B. – Teacher Education and Special Education, 2018
Enhancing all students' academic performance continues to be a national priority, and although achievement gains have been made overtime, shortfalls in mathematics learning for students with disabilities (SWD) remain. Research reveals that a substantial portion of the variability in students' mathematics achievement gains is due to the teacher. To…

Brady, Michael P.; Miller, Katie M.; McCormick, Jazarae; Heiser, Lawrence A. – Educational Policy, 2018
Educators struggle with "value-added" teacher evaluation models based on high-stakes student assessments. Despite validity and reliability threats, these models evaluate university-based teacher preparation programs (TPPs), and play a role in state and professional accreditation. This study reports a more rational value-added evaluation…

Rachels, Jason R.; Rockinson-Szapkiw, Amanda J. – Computer Assisted Language Learning, 2018
A quasi-experimental, pretest-posttest, non-equivalent control group design was used to examine the effect of a mobile gamification application on third and fourth grade students' Spanish language achievement and student academic self-efficacy. In this study, the treatment group's Spanish language instruction was through the use of…

Carter, Rona; Mustafaa, Faheemah N.; Leath, Seanna – Journal of Early Adolescence, 2018
Experiencing an early pubertal transition has been shown to increase the risk for internalizing and externalizing outcomes among girls. It is less clear how the expectations of other individuals can be critical determinants of vulnerability for early developers. This study used an experimental design to examine whether the expectations of teachers…

Delisio, Lauren A.; Bukaty, Caitlyn A.; Taylor, Matthew – Journal of Special Education Apprenticeship, 2018
Many of the top 21st century careers require advanced mathematics skills. However, mathematics is a known area of difficulty for students with disabilities (SWD), as they struggle in this area at a higher rate than peers without disabilities (O'Brien, 2016). Mathematical word problems incorporate comprehension of written language, an area known to…

Kim, Heesung; Ke, Fengfeng – Interactive Learning Environments, 2017
This experimental study was intended to examine whether the integration of game characteristics in the OpenSimulator-supported virtual reality (VR) learning environment can improve mathematical achievement for elementary school students. In this pre- and posttest experimental comparison study, data were collected from 132 fourth graders through an…

Taub, Gordon E.; Sivo, Stephen A.; Puyana, Olivia E. – School Psychology Forum, 2017
This study investigates second language acquisition of learners enrolled in a dual language/two-way bilingual immersion program. Two groups of third-grade students participated in this study. The first group was composed of Spanish-dominant participants learning English, and the second group was composed of English-dominant students learning…

Sun, Min; Loeb, Susanna; Grissom, Jason A. – Educational Evaluation and Policy Analysis, 2017
Student peer effects are well documented; however, we know far less about peer effects among teachers. We hypothesize that a relatively effective teacher can positively affect the performance of his or her peers, whereas a relatively ineffective teacher may negatively affect the performance of other teachers with whom he or she works closely.…

Jayanthi, Madhavi; Gersten, Russell; Taylor, Mary Jo; Smolkowski, Keith; Dimino, Joseph – Regional Educational Laboratory Southeast, 2017
Contemporary state math standards emphasize that students must demonstrate an understanding of the mathematical ideas underlying the computations that have typically been the core of the elementary school math curriculum. The standards have put an increased emphasis on the study of fractions in upper elementary grades, which are the years during…

Kim, Heesung; Ke, Fengfeng; Paek, Insu – Technology, Pedagogy and Education, 2017
This experimental study was intended to examine whether game-based learning (GBL) that encompasses four particular game characteristics (challenges, a storyline, immediate rewards and the integration of game-play with learning content) in an OpenSimulator-supported virtual reality learning environment can improve perceived motivational quality of…

Wood, Carla L.; Gabas, Clariebelle M. – Educational Research, 2017
Background: Reading attitudes are recognised as an influencing factor on the language and literacy achievement of school age monolingual English-speaking children. The relationship between reading attitudes and achievement in young Spanish-speaking English Learners (ELs) remains understudied. Purpose: The aim of the current study was to describe…

Brownell, Mary; Kiely, Mary Theresa; Haager, Diane; Boardman, Alison; Corbett, Nancy; Algina, James; Dingle, Mary Patricia; Urbach, Jennifer – Exceptional Children, 2017
Two professional development (PD) models for teachers were compared on teacher and student outcomes. Special education teachers participated in Literacy Learning Cohorts (LLC), a PD innovation designed to improve content and pedagogical knowledge for providing reading instruction to upper elementary students with learning disabilities. The LLC,…

Henry, Denfield L.; Nistor, Nicolae; Baltes, Beate – Journal of Educational Research and Practice, 2016
Multiple studies propose that English proficiency dictates English language learners' (ELLs) performances on mathematics assessments. The current study investigates the predictive power of English proficiency on mathematics scores, while controlling for gender, socioeconomic status (SES), and grade level among ELLs at a south Florida elementary…
