Peltier, Corey; Morano, Stephanie; Shin, Mikyung; Stevenson, Nathan; McKenna, John W. – Learning Disabilities Research & Practice, 2021
Single-case research designs (SCRDs) are rigorous methods used to investigate the effects of interventions on socially important outcomes. A hallmark of SCRDs is repeated measurement of observable behavior presented in time-series graphs. The construction of time-series graphs can inflate Type I or Type II errors made via visual analysis. In the…

Peltier, Corey; Lingo, Mindy E.; Autry, Faye; Deardorff, Malarie E.; Palacios, Maegann – Journal of Applied School Psychology, 2021
Many students identified with a specific learning disability (SLD) experience difficulty with mathematical problem solving. Schema-based instruction (SBI) is identified as a promising practice for students with a SLD. The current projects aimed to tests the efficacy of SBI implemented by a teacher under routine conditions. This extends prior…

Gregori, Emily; Wendt, Oliver; Gerow, Stephanie; Peltier, Corey; Genc-Tosun, Derya; Lory, Catharine; Gold, Zachary S. – Journal of Behavioral Education, 2020
Functional communication training (FCT) is one of the most common treatments for challenging behavior and is considered an empirically supported practice for children and adolescents with autism spectrum disorder (ASD). However, no previous systematic review has evaluated the quality of FCT for adults with ASD, and the empirical support for this…

Harrison, Judith R.; Kwong, Courtney; Evans, Steven W.; Peltier, Corey; Mathews, Leslie; Chatman, Tasia – Journal of Applied School Psychology, 2020
Self-management is a strategy with emerging evidence of effectiveness that has been utilized to address impairment associated with attention deficit hyperactivity disorder (ADHD); however, few studies have been conducted with students with ADHD. The results of the minimal research available suggests that self-management with youth with ADHD is…

Carnevale, Anthony P.; Smith, Nicole; Dražanová, Lenka; Gulish, Artem; Campbell, Kathryn Peltier – Georgetown University Center on Education and the Workforce, 2020
This report examines the relationship between authoritarianism and postsecondary education, including liberal arts education. This analysis rests on the idea that authoritarianism is part of human nature, but its influence waxes and wanes according to circumstances. Having entered a new era defined by the COVID-19 pandemic, the evidence suggests…

Peltier, Corey; Vannest, Kimberly J.; Morin, Kristi L.; Sinclair, Tracy E.; Sallese, Mary Rose – Exceptionality, 2020
Students with emotional and behavioral disorders (EBD) demonstrate poor academic outcomes, particularly in mathematics. Student-mediated interventions (e.g., self-management, self-monitoring, self-instruction) are replete in the intervention literature base for students with EBD. However, teacher-mediated interventions have been examined less…

Peltier, Corey; Lingo, Mindy E.; Deardorff, Malarie E.; Autry, Faye; Manwell, Carli R. – Exceptionality, 2020
Instruction geared toward priming the underlying problem structures was suggested as an evidence-based practice for students with a learning disability. Schema-based instruction is one intervention aligned with this principle. We extended prior work by: (1) using a teacher as the implementer; (2) providing teacher flexibility in intervention…

Pulos, Joshua M.; Peltier, Corey; Williams-Diehm, Kendra L.; Martin, James E. – Beyond Behavior, 2020
Teaching self-determination to students with emotional and behavioral disorders (EBD) may empower them to become self-regulated problem solvers. This article, using the Self-Determined Learning Model of Instruction (SDLMI), outlines a framework for teachers to facilitate mathematics instruction and goal attainment relative to in-school and…

Carnevale, Anthony P.; Strohl, Jeff; Gulish, Artem; Van Der Werf, Martin; Campbell, Kathryn Peltier – Georgetown University Center on Education and the Workforce, 2019
Between 1991 and 2016, employment among White, Black, and Latino workers grew by 20 percent, while employment in good jobs soared by 35 percent. Yet the opportunities and benefits of the modern economy have not accrued evenly across the three groups. Discrimination and a history of racial injustice in this country have led to Whites gaining a…

Carnevale, Anthony P.; Strohl, Jeff; Van Der Werf, Martin; Quinn, Michael C.; Campbell, Kathryn Peltier – Georgetown University Center on Education and the Workforce, 2019
Judging from how much high school students and their parents worry about standardized test scores, one might presume that an SAT or ACT score is the primary factor in college admissions. But a look at the numbers reveals a different reality. A review of SAT and ACT standardized test scores among students in a recent class at the nation's 200 most…
