Filter, Kevin J.; Ebsen, Sara; Dibos, Rebecca – International Journal of Special Education, 2013
A nationally representative sample of American school psychology practitioners were surveyed to analyze discrepancies that they experience between their actual discrete practices and their preferred discrete practices relative to several domains of practice including assessment, intervention, meetings, and continuing education. Discrepancies were…

Thompson, Derek – PRIMUS, 2015
The primary goal of this paper is to highlight the possibilities and benefits of incorporating games into college mathematics classrooms. This is illustrated through the personal success of using the board game "The Resistance" to teach validity and soundness of arguments in a discrete mathematics course. Along the way, we will give some…

Peterson, Sean P.; Rodriguez, Nicole M.; Pawich, Tamara L. – Journal of Applied Behavior Analysis, 2019
Despite its advantages, discrete-trial instruction (DTI) has been criticized for producing rote responding. Although there is little research supporting this claim, if true, this may be problematic given the propensity of children with autism to engage in restricted and repetitive behavior. One feature that is common in DTI that may contribute to…

Gongola, Leah; Sweeney, Jennifer – Intervention in School and Clinic, 2012
Current special education law mandates that educators use scientifically based practices, and in addition, educators should deliver refined instruction for learners with disabilities. Applied behavior analysis, based on the premise of increasing socially significant behaviors, embodies many interventions that adhere to evidence-based teaching…

Davis, Bradley W.; Gooden, Mark A.; Bowers, Alex J. – American Educational Research Journal, 2017
Utilizing rich data on nearly 11,000 educators over 17 academic years in a highly diverse context, we examine the career paths of teachers to determine whether and when they transition into the principalship. We utilize a variety of event history analyses, including discrete-time hazard modeling, to determine how an individual's race, gender, and…

Leaf, Justin B.; Cihon, Joseph H.; Alcalay, Aditt; Mitchell, Erin; Townley-Cochran, Donna; Miller, Kevin; Leaf, Ronald; Taubman, Mitchell; McEachin, John – Journal of Applied Behavior Analysis, 2017
The present study evaluated the effects of instructive feedback embedded within a group discrete trial teaching to teach tact relations to nine children diagnosed with autism spectrum disorder using a nonconcurrent multiple-baseline design. Dependent variables included correct responses for: primary targets (directly taught), secondary targets…

Bender, Keith A.; Heywood, John S. – Education Economics, 2017
Using a panel data set of scientists in the US, we examine the hypothesis that workers in jobs poorly matched to their education are more likely to retire. In pooled estimates, we confirm that the mismatched are more likely to retire and that among retirees, the mismatched retire at younger ages. Hazard function estimates also support the…

Boyce, Steven; Moss, Diana – North American Chapter of the International Group for the Psychology of Mathematics Education, 2017
This research report explores relationships between fractions' task representations (discrete, rectangular, or circular) and elementary prospective teachers' (PTs) fractions conceptions. Studies show PTs' conceptions of fractions are centered on a part-whole understanding, which may be problematic when teaching children about improper fractions.…

Ornelas, Fermin; Ordonez, Carlos – Technology, Knowledge and Learning, 2017
This research focuses on developing and implementing a continuous Naïve Bayesian classifier for GEAR courses at Rio Salado Community College. Previous implementation efforts of a discrete version did not predict as well, 70%, and had deployment issues. This predictive model has higher prediction, over 90%, accuracy for both at-risk and successful…

Brehm, Laurel; Goldrick, Matthew – Journal of Experimental Psychology: Learning, Memory, and Cognition, 2017
The current work uses memory errors to examine the mental representation of verb-particle constructions (VPCs; e.g., "make up" the story, "cut up the meat"). Some evidence suggests that VPCs are represented by a cline in which the relationship between the VPC and its component elements ranges from highly transparent ("cut…

Leaf, Justin B.; Cihon, Joseph H.; Leaf, Ronald; McEachin, John; Taubman, Mitchell – International Electronic Journal of Elementary Education, 2016
Discrete trial teaching (DTT) is one of the cornerstones of applied behavior analysis (ABA) based interventions. Conventionally, DTT is commonly implemented within a prescribed, fixed manner in which the therapist is governed by a strict set of rules. In contrast to conventional DTT, a progressive approach to DTT allows the therapist to remain…

Dobbs, David E. – International Journal of Mathematical Education in Science and Technology, 2013
A direct method is given for solving first-order linear recurrences with constant coefficients. The limiting value of that solution is studied as "n to infinity." This classroom note could serve as enrichment material for the typical introductory course on discrete mathematics that follows a calculus course.

Chagares, Adam M. – ProQuest LLC, 2016
There is an enormous educational disparity among schools in the United States. One reason for this disparity is the teachers employed by well-performing schools and low-performing schools. This study reports the factors and financial tradeoffs that would influence well-qualified teachers to work in low-performing schools. Teacher employment is…

Jerome, Lawrence – International Journal for Technology in Mathematics Education, 2012
Discrete Mathematics instructors and students have long been struggling with various labelling and scanning algorithms for solving many important problems. This paper shows how to solve a wide variety of Discrete Mathematics and OR problems using assignment matrices and linear programming, specifically using Excel Solvers although the same…

Chezan, Laura C.; Drasgow, Erik; Martin, Christian A. – Journal of Behavioral Education, 2014
We conducted a sequence of two studies on the use of discrete-trial functional analysis and functional communication training. First, we used discrete-trial functional analysis (DTFA) to identify the function of problem behavior in three adults with intellectual disabilities and problem behavior. Results indicated clear patterns of problem…
