Barr, Christopher D.; Reutebuch, Colleen K.; Carlson, Coleen D.; Vaughn, Sharon; Francis, David J. – Journal of Research on Educational Effectiveness, 2019
Beginning in 2002, researchers developed, implemented, and evaluated the efficacy of an English reading intervention for first-grade English learners using multiple randomized control trials (RCTs). As a result of this efficacy work, researchers successfully competed for an IES Goal 4 effectiveness study using the same intervention. Unlike the…

Van Norman, Ethan R.; Nelson, Peter M.; Parker, David C. – School Psychology Quarterly, 2018
Student response to instruction is a key piece of information that school psychologists use to make instructional decisions. Curriculum-based measures (CBMs) are the most commonly used and researched family of academic progress-monitoring assessments. There are a variety of reading CBMs that differ in the type and specificity of skills they…

Bouton, Bobette; McConnell, John R.; Barquero, Laura A.; Gilbert, Jennifer K.; Compton, Donald L. – Learning Disabilities Research & Practice, 2018
This quasi-experimental study explored a response-to-intervention (RTI) design in which Tiers 2 and 3 were inverted for the most at-risk first grade students in reading intervention in seven classrooms (n = 24) across two culturally diverse schools. These students were matched using propensity scores and compared to a second group of first grade…

McMurray, Bob; Roembke, Tanja C.; Hazeltine, Eliot – Journal of Cognition and Development, 2019
Many details in reading curricula (e.g., the order of materials) have analogs in laboratory studies of learning (e.g., blocking/interleaving). Principles of learning from cognitive science could be used to structure these materials to optimize learning, but they are not commonly applied. Recent work bridges this gap by "field testing"…

January, Stacy-Ann A.; Lovelace, Mary E.; Foster, Tori E.; Ardoin, Scott P. – Journal of Behavioral Education, 2017
Strategic Incremental Rehearsal (SIR) is a recently developed flashcard intervention that blends Traditional Drill with Incremental Rehearsal (IR) for teaching sight words. The initial study evaluating SIR found it was more effective than IR for teaching sight words to first-grade students. However, that study failed to assess efficiency, which is…

Cohen, Rebecca A.; Mather, Nancy; Schneider, Deborah A.; White, Jennifer M. – Reading and Writing: An Interdisciplinary Journal, 2017
One-hundred-fourteen kindergarten through third-grade teachers from seven different schools were surveyed using "The Survey of Preparedness and Knowledge of Language Structure Related to Teaching Reading to Struggling Students." The purpose was to compare their definitions and application knowledge of language structure, phonics, and…

Pilonieta, Paola – Reading Psychology, 2017
This study seeks to explain what first- and second-grade African American, urban students who participated in an explicit comprehension strategy instruction (ECSI) program learned about comprehension strategies and how this knowledge supports self-regulated strategy use. The study was also designed to compare these students' knowledge with those…

Madden, Nancy A.; Slavin, Robert E. – Reading & Writing Quarterly, 2017
This article reports on 2 experiments in inner-city Baltimore evaluating a computer-assisted tutoring approach, Tutoring With Alphie (TWA), in which 1 paraprofessional can work with up to 6 children at a time. In Study 1, we randomly assigned 14 schools to receive TWA or to continue with whatever approaches they were currently using. Each…

Slade, Timothy S.; Piper, Benjamin; Kaunda, Zikani; King, Simon; Ibrahim, Hibatalla – Research in Comparative and International Education, 2017
Summer learning loss--decreased academic performance following an extended school break, typically during the period after one grade ends and before another grade starts--is a well-documented phenomenon in North America, but poorly described in sub-Saharan African contexts. In this article, we use the term "grade-transition break" loss…

Butvilofsky, Sandra A.; Sparrow, Wendy; Roberson, Nathan D.; Hopewell, Susan – Literacy Research and Instruction, 2017
This quasi-experimental study tested the efficacy of a research based biliterate reading strategy, Lotta Lara, that is part of a larger paired literacy instructional program. Its purpose was to investigate whether the biliterate reading strategy, which focuses on reading fluency, comprehension, and oracy through whole group instruction, impacted…

Smith, Jean Louise M.; Nelson, Nancy J.; Fien, Hank; Smolkowski, Keith; Kosty, Derek; Baker, Scott K. – Elementary School Journal, 2016
This study reports the results of a cluster RCT evaluating the impact of Enhanced Core Reading Instruction on reading achievement of grade 1 at-risk readers. Forty-four elementary schools, blocked by district, were randomly assigned to condition. In both conditions, at-risk readers received 90 minutes of whole-group instruction (Tier 1) plus an…

Lyster, Solveig-Alma Halaas; Lervåg, Arne Olav; Hulme, Charles – Reading and Writing: An Interdisciplinary Journal, 2016
We evaluated the effect of morphological awareness training delivered in preschool (8 months before school entry) on reading ability at the end of grade 1 and 5 years later (in Grade 6). In preschool, one group of children received morphological awareness training, while a second group received phonological awareness training. A control group…

Olaussen, Bodil Stokke – Universal Journal of Educational Research, 2016
Understanding that classroom discourse is important for reading comprehension and critical thinking is emerging. The aim of the present study was to analyze what teachers say and do, to promote discussion at a teacher-led station in the Early Years Literacy Program (EYLP). The EYLP is a program for reading instruction, organized at different…

Bates, Celeste C.; D'Agostino, Jerome V.; Gambrell, Linda; Xu, Meling – Journal of Education for Students Placed at Risk, 2016
This study examined the effects of Reading Recovery on children's motivational levels, and how motivation may contribute to the effect of the intervention on literacy achievement. Prior studies concluded that Reading Recovery was positively associated with increased student motivation levels, but most of those studies were limited…
