Doabler, Christian T.; Clarke, Ben; Kosty, Derek; Turtura, Jessica E.; Sutherland, Marah; Maddox, Steven A.; Smolkowski, Keith – Grantee Submission, 2021
Implementation of evidence-based practices (EBPs) is paramount to students' development of mathematics proficiency. This study investigated "practice-based evidence" (Green, 2008) of interventionists' actual use of explicit mathematics instruction, a well-established EBP. Specifically, this study analyzed direct observation data…

Conceptual replications are part and parcel of education science. Methodologically rigorous conceptual replication studies permit researchers to test and strengthen the generalizability of a study's initial findings. The current conceptual replication sought to replicate the efficacy of a small-group, first-grade mathematics intervention with 240…

Ben Clarke; Christian T. Doabler; Marah Sutherland; Derek Kosty; Jessica Turtura; Keith Smolkowski – Grantee Submission, 2022
This study utilized a partially nested randomized control design to investigate the impact of Fusion, a first grade math intervention. Blocking on classrooms, students were randomly assigned to one of three conditions: a Fusion two student group, a Fusion five student group, or a no treatment control group. Two primary research questions were…

Jolinda Smith; Eric Wilkey; Ben Clarke; Lina Shanley; Virany Men; Damien Fair; Fred W. Sabb – Grantee Submission, 2022
Motion remains a significant technical hurdle in fMRI studies of young children. Our aim was to develop a straightforward and effective method for obtaining and preprocessing resting state data from a high-motion pediatric cohort. This approach combines real-time monitoring of head motion with a preprocessing pipeline that uses volume censoring…

Wilkey, Eric D.; Shanley, Lina; Sabb, Fred; Ansari, Daniel; Cohen, Jason C.; Men, Virany; Heller, Nicole A.; Clarke, Ben – Grantee Submission, 2021
Children's ability to discriminate nonsymbolic number (e.g. the number of items in a set) is a commonly studied predictor of later math skills. Number discrimination improves throughout development, but what drives this improvement is unclear. Competing theories suggest it may be due to a sharpening numerical representation or an improved ability…
