Shahabi, Mehrnesa; Hasani, Jafar; Bjureberg, Johan – Assessment for Effective Intervention, 2020
The "Difficulties in Emotion Regulation Scale" (DERS) is an established self-reported measure of emotion regulation difficulties. Recently, a brief 16-item version of this scale--the DERS-16--was developed. The goal of the present study was to extend the research on the DERS-16 by evaluating the reliability and validity of the Persian…

Van Loan, Christopher L.; Garwood, Justin D. – Assessment for Effective Intervention, 2020
Students with emotional and behavioral disorders (EBD) have difficulty forming and maintaining high-quality relationships with their teachers, yet they have the most to gain from positive relationships. The majority of studies examining teacher-student relationships have been correlational, focused on preschool and elementary-aged children, and…

Collier-Meek, Melissa A.; Fallon, Lindsay M.; DeFouw, Emily R. – Assessment for Effective Intervention, 2020
Treatment fidelity assessment is critical to evaluating the extent to which interventions, such as the Good Behavior Game, are implemented as intended and impact student outcomes. The assessment methods by which treatment fidelity data are collected vary, with direct observation being the most popular and widely recommended. The current study…

Petscher, Yaacov; Koon, Sharon – Assessment for Effective Intervention, 2020
The assessment of screening accuracy and setting of cut points for a universal screener have traditionally been evaluated using logistic regression analysis. This analytic technique has been frequently used to evaluate the trade-offs in correct classification with misidentification of individuals who are at risk of performing poorly on a later…

Doabler, Christian T.; Stoolmiller, Mike; Kennedy, Patrick C.; Nelson, Nancy J.; Clarke, Ben; Gearin, Brian; Fien, Hank; Smolkowski, Keith; Baker, Scott K. – Assessment for Effective Intervention, 2019
A growing body of research suggests that the effects of core mathematics instruction on student mathematics outcomes may not be uniform across different skill levels in mathematics. This study investigated the extent to which observed components of explicit mathematics instruction explained why students' initial mathematics achievement was…

Kent, Shawn C.; Wanzek, Jeanne; Yun, Joonmo – Assessment for Effective Intervention, 2019
This study examined the predictive validity and classification accuracy of individual- and group-administered screening measures relative to student performance on a year-end state reading assessment in two states. A sample of 321 students was assessed in the areas of word-level and text fluency, as well as reading comprehension in the fall of…

Collier-Meek, Melissa A.; Johnson, Austin H.; Sanetti, Lisa M. H. – Assessment for Effective Intervention, 2019
Many teachers struggle to deliver interventions with sufficient treatment integrity, perhaps due to implementation variables that mediate or moderate treatment integrity. Potential implementation variables have frequently been conceptualized in ecological frameworks, including the intervention, implementer, organization, and external environmental…

Kiss, Allyson J.; Christ, Theodore J. – Assessment for Effective Intervention, 2019
Difficulties in reading and math are more likely to occur simultaneously than difficulties in either area alone; however, the research on that comorbidity is relatively sparse. The purpose of this study was to examine the relation between early reading skills as predictors of math achievement. A group of 102 kindergarten and 65 first-grade…
