Jenkins, Sarah R.; Hirst, Jason M.; DiGennaro Reed, Florence D. – Journal of Behavioral Education, 2015
We conducted a parametric analysis of treatment integrity errors during discrete-trial training and investigated the effects of three integrity conditions (0, 50, or 100 % errors of commission) on performance in the presence and absence of programmed errors. The presence of commission errors impaired acquisition for three of four participants.…

Martin, Nancy L. – Information Systems Education Journal, 2015
This paper describes the development of a hybrid introductory course for students in their first or second year of an information systems technologies degree program at a large Midwestern university. The course combines topics from discrete mathematics and programming logic and design, a unique twist on most introductory courses. The objective of…

McKenney, Elizabeth L. W.; Bristol, Ryan M. – School Psychology Quarterly, 2015
This study evaluated the impact of performance feedback on nine public educators' level of procedural integrity to Discrete Trial Teaching (DTT) procedures for students with Autism Spectrum Disorder (ASD). Procedural integrity was observed during four phases: no feedback, general feedback, performance feedback, and maintenance, in a multiple…

Dillingham, Reginald T.; Breffle, William S.; Kelly, Matthew C. – Journal of Marketing for Higher Education, 2018
Increasing enrollment in undergraduate and graduate economics courses that focus on the natural world (natural resource, environmental, energy, and mineral economics) is important for preparing a work force capable of addressing complex environmental issues. This is especially challenging for smaller universities that want to offer diverse…

Elliott, Ceri; Dillenburger, Karola – Journal of Research in Special Educational Needs, 2016
Self-determination and decision-making are acknowledged internationally as key rights of persons with disabilities and should play an important role in the development of educational plans and procedures. Not only is the chance for individuals with developmental disabilities to select their own tasks, leisure activities or reinforcers a valuable…

Higbee, Thomas S.; Aporta, Ana Paula; Resende, Alice; Nogueira, Mateus; Goyos, Celso; Pollard, Joy S. – Journal of Applied Behavior Analysis, 2016
Discrete-trial instruction (DTI) is a behavioral method of teaching young children with autism spectrum disorders (ASD) that has received a significant amount of research support. Because of a lack of qualified trainers in many areas of the world, researchers have recently begun to investigate alternative methods of training professionals to…

Freeman, Jennifer L. – ProQuest LLC, 2016
The goal of an early intensive behavioral intervention (EIBI) program is to teach each child the skills necessary to make meaningful progress in less-restrictive environments (Fox, Dunlap & Crushing, 2002). However, few studies have detailed the steps necessary for a "successful" transition into these educational settings. We…

Jozwiak, Katarzyna; Moerbeek, Mirjam – Journal of Educational and Behavioral Statistics, 2012
Studies on event occurrence aim to investigate if and when subjects experience a particular event. The timing of events may be measured continuously using thin precise units or discretely using time periods. The latter metric of time is often used in social science research and the generalized linear model (GLM) is an appropriate model for data…

Hamdan, Mohammed Akram – International Journal of Special Education, 2018
The present study aimed to develop a proposed training program based on DTT to improve the nonverbal communication skills in children with ASD. To achieve the objective of the study, the author developed a scale of non-verbal communication skills consisted of (20 items) measures attention and eye contact, imitation and using the signal,…

Faustino, Julie Ann C.; Serrano, Jennifer O.; de Guzman, Allan B. – Educational Gerontology, 2020
The transition from a busy work life to a retired state entails a lot of adjustment, planning, and wise decision-making. While there have been numerous studies that elucidate retirement issues across the globe, the need to know about retirement preferences of middle-aged and older teachers remains a blank spot in the literature, hence this…

Kellen, David; Klauer, Karl Christoph – Journal of Experimental Psychology: Learning, Memory, and Cognition, 2014
A classic discussion in the recognition-memory literature concerns the question of whether recognition judgments are better described by continuous or discrete processes. These two hypotheses are instantiated by the signal detection theory model (SDT) and the 2-high-threshold model, respectively. Their comparison has almost invariably relied on…

Hall, Scott S.; Hustyi, Kristin M.; Hammond, Jennifer L.; Hirt, Melissa; Reiss, Allan L. – Journal of Autism and Developmental Disorders, 2014
We examined whether "discrete trial training" (DTT) could be used to identify learning impairments in mathematical reasoning in boys with fragile X syndrome (FXS). Boys with FXS, aged 10-23 years, and age and IQ-matched controls, were trained to match fractions to pie-charts and pie-charts to decimals either on a computer or with a…

Kennelly, Brendan; Flannery, Darragh; Considine, John; Doherty, Edel; Hynes, Stephen – Practical Assessment, Research & Evaluation, 2014
This paper outlines how a discrete choice experiment (DCE) can be used to learn more about how students are willing to trade off various features of assignments such as the nature and timing of feedback and the method used to submit assignments. A DCE identifies plausible levels of the key attributes of a good or service and then presents the…

Kohaupt, Ludwig – Cogent Education, 2015
The discrete Fourier series is a valuable tool developed and used by mathematicians and engineers alike. One of the most prominent applications is signal processing. Usually, it is important that the signals be transmitted fast, for example, when transmitting images over large distances such as between the moon and the earth or when generating…

Mason, Rose A.; Schnitz, Alana G.; Wills, Howard P.; Rosenbloom, Raia; Kamps, Debra M.; Bast, Darcey – Journal of Autism and Developmental Disorders, 2017
Ensuring educational progress for students with moderate-to-severe developmental disabilities requires exposure to well executed evidence-based practices. This necessitates that the special education workforce, including paraprofessionals, be well-trained. Yet evidence regarding effective training mechanisms for paraprofessionals is limited. A…
