Steacy, Laura M.; Elleman, Amy M.; Lovett, Maureen W.; Compton, Donald L. – Scientific Studies of Reading, 2016
In English, gains in decoding skill do not map directly onto increases in word reading. However, beyond the Self-Teaching Hypothesis, little is known about the transfer of decoding skills to word reading. In this study, we offer a new approach to testing specific decoding elements on transfer to word reading. To illustrate, we modeled word-reading…

Hoang, Thienhuong – Journal of the American Academy of Special Education Professionals, 2010
The educational community is discussing response-to-intervention (RTI) as an alternative assessment method. This study investigates assessment elements (beginning text level, ending text level, and number of weeks' participation) of the Reading Recovery (RR) program as part of a future RTI model. By means of a discriminant function analysis, third…

Swanson, H. Lee; Orosco, Michael J.; Kudo, Milagros Fatima – Reading & Writing Quarterly, 2017
This study investigated the relationship between elementary classroom (N = 50) reading activities in Year 1 and reading performance (i.e., passage comprehension, letter-word identification, and word attack) 1 year later for English language learners (ELLs; N = 270). A cross-classification hierarchical model indicated that compared to other reading…

Newton, Xiaoxia A.; Llosa, Lorena – American Journal of Evaluation, 2010
Most K-12 evaluations are designed to make inferences about how a program implemented at the classroom or school level affects student learning outcomes and such inferences inherently involve hierarchical data structure. One methodological challenge for evaluators is linking program implementation factors typically measured at the classroom or…

Meyer, Nancy K.; Bouck, Emily C. – Learning Disabilities: A Multidisciplinary Journal, 2017
Adolescents with learning disabilities in reading have difficulties with reading and understanding difficult gradelevel curricular material. One frequently used method of support is using read-aloud accommodations, which can be live read-alouds or text-to-speech (TTS) read-alouds. A single case alternating treatment design was used to examine the…
