Yakubova, Gulnoza; Hughes, Elizabeth M.; Baer, Briella L. – Preventing School Failure, 2020
With the increasing attention and surge of empirical research in providing academic instruction for students with autism spectrum disorder (ASD) comes the need to provide teachers with research-supported strategies. Using one evidence-based strategy for teaching mathematics to students with high incidence disabilities, and another for teaching…

Watson, Kelly – Australian Primary Mathematics Classroom, 2016
In order for students to move from using concrete materials to using mental strategies and from additive to multiplicative thinking, the use of arrays and visualisation is pivotal. This article describes a lesson in which students are taken through a Concrete-Representational-Abstract (CRA) approach that involves noticing structure, using…

Cole, Kimberley W. – Research Management Review, 2013
The Certified Research Administrator (CRA) certification has enjoyed success and recognition among research administration professionals. However, this recognition is parochial and does not extend much past the walls of research administration. Results of a recent research study showed that Principal Investigators value and expect certain aspects…

Zhang, Dake – Learning Disabilities: A Contemporary Journal, 2017
We examined the effectiveness of (a) a working memory (WM) training program and (b) a combination program involving both WM training and direct instruction for students with geometry difficulties (GD). Four students with GD participated. A multiple-baseline design across participants was employed. During the Phase 1, students received six sessions…

Flores, Margaret M.; Franklin, Toni M. – Journal of the American Academy of Special Education Professionals, 2014
The Common Core State Standards (2010) involve the demonstration of conceptual knowledge of numbers and operations. For students who struggle with mathematics and have not responded to instruction, it is important that interventions emphasize this understanding. In order to address conceptual understanding of numbers and operations in meeting the…

Yang, Yuqin; Chen, Qianqian; Yu, Yawen; Feng, Xueqi; van Aalst, Jan – British Journal of Educational Technology, 2020
We examined the facilitation of shared epistemic agency through a knowledge-building (KB) design that included analytics-supported collective reflective assessment (AsCRA). Forty undergraduate students taking a Liberal Studies course at a university in central China used the promising ideas tool and the knowledge building discourse explorer to…

Flores, Margaret M.; Moore, Alexcia J.; Meyer, Jill M. – Psychology in the Schools, 2020
Elementary standards include multiplication of single-digit numbers and students advance to solve complex problems and demonstrate procedural fluency in algorithms. The ability to illustrate procedural fluency in algorithms is dependent on the development of understanding and reasoning in multiplication. Development of multiplicative reasoning…

Bouck, Emily C.; Sprick, Jessica – Intervention in School and Clinic, 2019
The virtual-representational-abstract (VRA) framework adapts an evidence-based practice, the concrete-representational-abstract (CRA) framework, while trying to meet students and teachers where they are in terms of technology interest and use in education. This article discusses the VRA framework and the advantages of virtual manipulatives, and…

Hinton, Vanessa; Strozier, Shaunita D.; Flores, Margaret M. – Online Submission, 2014
It is incredibly important for students who are at-risk for mathematics failure or who have a disability which hinders mathematical performance to improve in their mathematical achievement. One way to improve mathematical achievement is through building fluency in mathematics. Fluency in mathematics is the ability to solve problems automatically…

Flores, Margaret M.; Hinton, Vanessa; Strozier, Shaunita D. – Learning Disabilities Research & Practice, 2014
Based on Common Core Standards (2010), mathematics interventions should emphasize conceptual understanding of numbers and operations as well as fluency. For students at risk for failure, the concrete-representational-abstract (CRA) sequence and the Strategic Instruction Model (SIM) have been shown effective in teaching computation with an emphasis…

Flores, Margaret M.; Hinton, Vanessa M.; Burton, Megan E. – Preventing School Failure, 2016
Mathematical word problems are the most common form of mathematics problem solving implemented in K-12 schools. Identifying key words is a frequent strategy taught in classrooms in which students struggle with problem solving and show low success rates in mathematics. Researchers show that using the concrete-representational-abstract (CRA)…

Flores, Margaret M. – Remedial and Special Education, 2010
This study investigated the effects of the concrete-representational-abstract (CRA) instructional sequence on the subtraction performance of students identified as at-risk for mathematics failure. Although the CRA sequence has been demonstrated as effective for teaching a variety of mathematical skills and processes its effects when used to teach…

Wiley, Terrence G. – International Multilingual Research Journal, 2015
This article briefly reviews the contributions to this volume and revisits the original focus of the Civil Rights Act (CRA). It considers how much progress has been made in addressing the original concerns regarding ethnic and racial discrimination that the act was intended to address and the intersection of language issues with them. The article…

Christie, Michael; Grainger, Peter; Dahlgren, Robert; Call, Kairen; Heck, Deborah; Simon, Susan – Journal of the Scholarship of Teaching and Learning, 2015
This study compares the use and efficacy of assessment grading tools within postgraduate education courses in a regional Australian university and a regional university in the US. Specifically, we investigate how the quality of postgraduate education courses can be improved through the use of assessment rubrics or criterion referenced assessment…
