Barger, Brian; Graybill, Emily; Roach, Andrew; Lane, Kathleen – Assessment for Effective Intervention, 2022
This study used item response theory (IRT) methods to investigate group differences in responses to the 12-item Student Risk Screening Scale--Internalizing and Externalizing (SRSS-IE12) in a sample of 3,837 U.S. elementary school students. Using factor analysis and graded response models from IRT methods, we examined the factor structure and the…

Conoyer, Sarah J.; Therrien, William J.; White, Kristen K. – Assessment for Effective Intervention, 2022
Meta-analysis was used to examine curriculum-based measurement in the content areas of social studies and science. Nineteen studies between the years of 1998 and 2020 were reviewed to determine overall mean correlation for criterion validity and examine alternate-form reliability and slope coefficients. An overall mean correlation of 0.59 was…

Wagle, Rhea; Dowdy, Erin; Furlong, Michael J.; Nylund-Gibson, Karen; Carter, Delwin; Hinton, Tameisha – Assessment for Effective Intervention, 2022
Schools are an essential setting for mental health supports and services for students. To support student well-being, schools engage in universal mental health screening to identify students in need of support and to provide surveillance data for district-wide or state-wide policy changes. Mental health data have been collected via anonymous and…

van Dijk, Wilhelmina; Huggins-Manley, A. Corinne; Gage, Nicholas A.; Lane, Holly B.; Coyne, Michael – Assessment for Effective Intervention, 2022
In reading intervention research, implementation fidelity is assumed to be positively related to student outcomes, but the methods used to measure fidelity are often treated as an afterthought. Fidelity has been conceptualized and measured in many different ways, suggesting a lack of construct validity. One aspect of construct validity is the…

Newell, Kirsten W.; Kember, Jessie; Zinn, Gesa – Assessment for Effective Intervention, 2022
This brief report summarizes the development and psychometric properties of German reading fluency passages as compared to English reading fluency passages for immersion language learners. Results indicated that scores from German language reading fluency passages alone were (a) somewhat less reliable than scores from English publisher-developed…

Goodwin, Amanda P.; Petscher, Yaacov; Tock, Jamie; McFadden, Sara; Reynolds, Dan; Lantos, Tess; Jones, Sara – Assessment for Effective Intervention, 2022
Assessment of language skills for upper elementary and middle schoolers is important due to the strong link between language and reading comprehension. Yet, currently few practical, reliable, valid, and instructionally informative assessments of language exist. This study provides validation evidence for Monster, P.I., which is a gamified,…

VanDerHeyden, Amanda M.; Broussard, Carmen – Assessment for Effective Intervention, 2021
This study details the construction of parameters for generating subskill mastery math measures to be used for screening, intervention planning, progress monitoring, and proximal program evaluation. Parameters for generating assessment measures were built and tested to verify initial equivalence of generated measures using potential digits correct…

McKevett, Nicole M.; Codding, Robin S. – Assessment for Effective Intervention, 2021
Brief experimental analysis (BEA) is a quick method used to identify the function of student learning difficulties and match effective interventions to students' needs. Extensive work has been done to explore the use of this methodology to determine effective reading interventions; however, a smaller number of published studies have examined the…

McKenna, John William; Newton, Xiaoxia; Bergman, Emily R. – Assessment for Effective Intervention, 2021
Although the majority of students receiving special education services for emotional disturbance (ED) receive a significant amount of instruction in general education classrooms, evidence-based practices for educating students with ED in these settings have yet to be identified. As a result, school-based practitioners must primarily rely on…

Tabet, Saundra M.; Perleoni, Mary K.; Dillman Taylor, Dalena; Kelchner, Viki P.; Lambie, Glenn W. – Assessment for Effective Intervention, 2021
The Child Behavior Checklist (CBCL) is one of the most frequently used assessments of social, emotional, and behavioral functioning; however, previous research has noted inconsistency in the factor structure and items included on the Child Behavior Checklist for Ages 6 to 18 Years (CBCL/6-18) when tested with diverse samples of client populations.…

Van Norman, Ethan R.; Nelson, Peter M. – Assessment for Effective Intervention, 2021
The current study evaluated whether goal-setting practices that account for seasonal developmental patterns of reading growth decreased the number of weeks data needed to be collected in order to yield accurate response to intervention decisions for a sample of 224 third-grade students. The extent to which more complex decision-making practices…

Parker, David C.; Stewart, Lisa H.; Thomson, Susan; Kaminski, Ruth A. – Assessment for Effective Intervention, 2021
Vocabulary skills are important for overall reading competence, but vocabulary assessment approaches that inform instructional decision-making and are sensitive to improvement are limited. This article describes a process for developing vocabulary measures designed to facilitate data-driven decision-making for kindergarten and first-grade students…

Casale, Gino; Volpe, Robert J.; Briesch, Amy M.; Hennemann, Thomas; Grosche, Michael – Assessment for Effective Intervention, 2021
Direct Behavior Rating (DBR) has been proposed as a promising approach to assess student behavioral progress in classroom settings. The current study examines raters and occasions as well as their interactions as sources of error in the use of DBR--Multi-Item Scales (DBR-MIS) and DBR--Single-Item Scales (DBR-SIS) for academically engaged (AE) and…
