Chow, Jason C.; Hollo, Alexandra – Assessment for Effective Intervention, 2018
Language impairment often goes unidentified in students with behavioral disorders, perhaps in part because different forms of problem behavior deflect adult attention from more subtle language deficits. Therefore, attention to teachers' perception of students' language and behavioral performance is merited. The present study examines agreement…

Bruce, Susan M.; Luckner, John L.; Ferrell, Kay A. – Assessment for Effective Intervention, 2018
This article presents an overview of recommended practices for assessing students who are deaf/hard of hearing, visually impaired, or deafblind. These recommendations were originally derived from a systematic review of research studies, policy documents, and professional literature on assessment (1990-2013) for the Collaboration for Effective…

Hosp, John L.; Ford, Jeremy W.; Huddle, Sally M.; Hensley, Kiersten K. – Assessment for Effective Intervention, 2018
Replication is a foundation of the development of a knowledge base in an evidence-based field such as education. This study includes two direct replications of Hosp, Hensley, Huddle, and Ford which found evidence of criterion-related validity of curriculum-based measurement (CBM) for reading and mathematics with postsecondary students with…

Van Norman, Ethan R.; Parker, David C. – Assessment for Effective Intervention, 2018
Recent simulations suggest that trend line decision rules applied to curriculum-based measurement of reading progress monitoring data may lead to inaccurate interpretations unless data are collected for upward of 3 months. The authors of those studies did not manipulate goal line slope or account for a student's level of initial performance when…

Ford, Jeremy W.; Conoyer, Sarah J.; Lembke, Erica S.; Smith, R. Alex; Hosp, John L. – Assessment for Effective Intervention, 2018
In the present study, two types of curriculum-based measurement (CBM) tools in science, Vocabulary Matching (VM) and Statement Verification for Science (SV-S), a modified Sentence Verification Technique, were compared. Specifically, this study aimed to determine whether the format of information presented (i.e., SV-S vs. VM) produces differences…

Owens, Julie Sarno; Evans, Steven W. – Assessment for Effective Intervention, 2018
The studies in this special series examine the effectiveness of direct behavior ratings (DBRs) for use as a progress monitoring tool. In this article, we comment on the findings of the studies in the context of the broader school-based assessment movement and discuss areas for future inquiry within this line of research.

Maggin, Daniel M.; Bruhn, Allison – Assessment for Effective Intervention, 2018
The purpose of this commentary is to provide observation on the contributions to the special issue and remark on the broader implications of the research. As noted throughout the special issue, the intent was to demonstrate the use of progress monitoring within a problem-solving framework to evaluate student social and behavioral development using…

Davison, Mark L.; Biancarosa, Gina; Carlson, Sarah E.; Seipel, Ben; Liu, Bowen – Assessment for Effective Intervention, 2018
The computer-administered Multiple-Choice Online Causal Comprehension Assessment (MOCCA) for Grades 3 to 5 has an innovative, 40-item multiple-choice structure in which each distractor corresponds to a comprehension process upon which poor comprehenders have been shown to rely. This structure requires revised thinking about measurement issues…

Burns, Matthew K.; Davidson, Katherine; Zaslofsky, Anne F.; Parker, David C.; Maki, Kathrin E. – Assessment for Effective Intervention, 2018
The amount of information that students successfully learn and later recall from each intervention session is limited and is called the acquisition rate (AR). Research has consistently supported the effects of modifying intervention set sizes with AR data, but research with AR is in its infancy. The current study compared the relationship between…

Jung, Pyung-Gang; McMaster, Kristen L. – Assessment for Effective Intervention, 2018
We examined the classification accuracy of Curriculum-Based Measurement in writing (CBM-W) Picture Word prompts scored for words written (WW), words spelled correctly (WSC), and correct word sequences (CWS). First graders (n = 133) were administered CBM-W prompts and the Test of Written Language-Third Edition (TOWL-3; Hammill & Larsen, 1996).…

Parker, David C.; Burns, Matthew K.; McMaster, Kristen L.; Al Otaiba, Stephanie; Medhanie, Amanuel – Assessment for Effective Intervention, 2018
The current study determined growth patterns during an 8-week writing intervention and then examined the association between growth pattern and students' initial skills as determined by instructional-level data. One hundred forty-seven first-grade students struggling with early literacy skills received a writing intervention at one of two tiers of…

Nelson, Gena; Powell, Sarah R. – Assessment for Effective Intervention, 2018
Though proficiency with computation is highly emphasized in national mathematics standards, students with mathematics difficulty (MD) continue to struggle with computation. To learn more about the differences in computation error patterns between typically achieving students and students with MD, we assessed 478 third-grade students on a measure…

Lawson, Janelle E.; Cruz, Rebecca A. – Assessment for Effective Intervention, 2018
Classroom observations remain the predominant data source used in teacher evaluations, but little is known about how rater characteristics may affect teachers' scores. For special educators, whose instructional practice requires specialized knowledge and skills, school administrators (i.e., the raters) without experience in special education…

Piasta, Shayne B.; Farley, Kristin S.; Phillips, Beth M.; Anthony, Jason L.; Bowles, Ryan P. – Assessment for Effective Intervention, 2018
The Letter-Sound Short Forms (LSSFs) were designed to meet criteria for effective progress monitoring tools by exhibiting strong psychometrics, offering multiple equivalent forms, and being brief and easy to administer and score. The present study expands available psychometric information for the LSSFs by providing an initial examination of their…

Collier-Meek, Melissa A.; Johnson, Austin H.; Farrell, Anne F. – Assessment for Effective Intervention, 2018
Implementation of research-based, Tier 1 behavior management strategies can be monitored to provide data-driven feedback and in support of integrity. The "Measure of Active Supervision and Interaction" (MASI) was developed to measure four behavior management practices (i.e., Praise, Correction, References to Behavior Expectations, Active…
