Clarke, Ben; Strand Cary, Mari G.; Shanley, Lina; Sutherland, Marah – Assessment for Effective Intervention, 2020
This manuscript presents the results from a study to investigate the technical characteristics of two versions of a number line assessment (NLA 0-20 and NLA 0-100). The sample consisted of 60 kindergarten and 46 first grade students. Both number line versions had sufficient alternate form and test-retest reliability. The NLA 0-20 had low and the…

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…

Kincaid, Aleksis P.; McConnell, Scott R.; Wackerle-Hollman, Alisha K. – Assessment for Effective Intervention, 2020
Evidence of longitudinal relations between language and early literacy skills in early childhood and later reading (and other) achievement is growing, along with an expanding array of early education programs designed to improve later academic outcomes and prevent, reduce, or close later academic achievement gaps across groups. Assessment systems…

Ochs, Sarah; Keller-Margulis, Milena A.; Santi, Kristi L.; Jones, John H. – Assessment for Effective Intervention, 2020
Universal screening is the first mechanism by which students are identified as at risk of failure in the context of multitiered systems of supports. This study examined the validity and diagnostic accuracy of a reading computer-adaptive test as a screener to identify state achievement test performance for third through fifth graders (N = 1,696).…

Dart, Evan H.; Arora, Prerna; Collins, Tai; Stark, Kevin; Cook, Clayton R.; Duong, Mylien T.; McCarty, Carolyn A.; Doll, Beth – Assessment for Effective Intervention, 2020
Frequent formative assessment of students' functioning, or progress monitoring, is a critical component of multi-tiered systems of support as data inform data-driven decisions about response to treatment. Progress monitoring tools for students' academic and behavioral functioning are readily available and widely researched; however, despite the…

Solomon, Benjamin G.; Dawes, Jillian M.; Duhon, Gary J.; Poncy, Brian C. – Assessment for Effective Intervention, 2020
Brief experimental analysis (BEA) is a well-researched approach to conducting problem analysis, where potential interventions are pilot tested using a single-subject alternating treatment design. However, its brevity may lead to a high frequency of decision-making errors, particularly in situations where one tested condition is rarely optimal for…

Hughes, Elizabeth M.; Powell, Sarah R.; Lee, Joo-Young – Assessment for Effective Intervention, 2020
Proficiency with mathematics requires an understanding of mathematical language. Students are required to make sense of both spoken and written mathematical terms. An essential component of mathematical language involves the understanding of the vocabulary of mathematics in which students connect vocabulary terms to mathematical concepts or…

Wood, Carla L.; Bustamante, Kristina N.; Schatschneider, Christopher; Hart, Sara – Assessment for Effective Intervention, 2019
The purpose of this study was to examine construct validity of methods of calculating lexical diversity in written narrative samples relative to children's performance on a reading vocabulary measure. For 234 children in first to fifth grade, written narratives were examined and compared between grades for number of different words (NDW), total…
