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…

Silverman, Rebecca D.; McNeish, Daniel; Speece, Deborah L.; Ritchey, Kristin D. – Assessment for Effective Intervention, 2021
The present study investigated the identification of end of first grade (n = 125) and end of third grade (n = 77) reading comprehension difficulties using beginning of first grade decoding-related and language-related predictors. Reading comprehension was defined using a composite of three standardized reading comprehension measures. Students at…

Genareo, Vincent R.; Foegen, Anne; Dougherty, Barbara J.; DeLeeuw, William W.; Olson, Jeannette; Karaman Dundar, Ruveyda – Assessment for Effective Intervention, 2021
Although algebra often functions as a gatekeeper to higher-level mathematics courses and higher education admissions, few quality measures exist for assessing conceptual understanding. This study explored the technical adequacy of three procedural and two conceptual algebra screening measures. We administered three rounds of assessments throughout…

Hwang, Jiwon; Riccomini, Paul J. – Assessment for Effective Intervention, 2021
Developing an understanding of fractions is critical as a significant predictor for the learning progression of advanced domains; however, students face significant challenges in learning fractions because of their unique properties. To systematically approach remediation, this study examined the common error patterns committed by middle-school…

Thomas, Asia S.; January, Stacy-Ann A. – Assessment for Effective Intervention, 2021
Educators use universal screening to identify students who may be at risk for not meeting proficiency on the state assessment. Given the potential high-stakes of state tests, using accurate screeners is critical. Independent research is emerging on screeners such as the Measures of Academic Progress (MAP), a computer adaptive test, and the…

Stevenson, Nathan A.; Swain-Bradway, Jessica; LeBeau, Brandon C. – Assessment for Effective Intervention, 2021
There is a well-known positive relation between student engagement and a host of school outcomes. The following article describes a study that explores a commonly used tool for measuring engagement in high schools. Specifically, this study examined internal validity, factor structure, and the relation between factors of engagement (e.g., social,…

Greenwood, Charles R.; Buzhardt, Jay; Walker, Dale; Jia, Fan; Carta, Judith J. – Assessment for Effective Intervention, 2020
The Early Communication Indicator (ECI) is a progress monitoring measure designed to support intervention decisions of the home visitors and early educators who serve infants and toddlers. The present study sought to add to the criterion validity claims of the ECI in a large sample of children using measures of language and preliteracy not…

Hojnoski, Robin L.; Missall, Kristen N.; Wood, Brenna K. – Assessment for Effective Intervention, 2020
Engagement in early childhood is defined as a child's level of participation with the environment. Engagement is an important construct in assessment and intervention of social and early learning competence given its link to school achievement. Few tools exist to assess engagement of young children in early education, and there is a need for a…

Conoyer, Sarah J.; Goran, Lisa; Allen, Abigail A.; Hoffman, Katie E. – Assessment for Effective Intervention, 2020
The purpose of this preliminary study was to explore the reliability of Curriculum-Based Measurement (CBM) vocabulary-matching forms with students in an introduction to special education course in a college setting. Data from 84 students enrolled in a teacher preparation program across three semesters were examined. Results suggest low to moderate…

VanMeveren, Kalie; Hulac, David; Wollersheim-Shervey, Sarah – Assessment for Effective Intervention, 2020
Reading screening assessments help educators identify students who are at risk of reading and determine the need for intervention and supports. However, some schools screen and assess students more often than needed, and the additional information does not improve the accuracy of decisions. This may be especially true for students at the upper…

Daily, Shay M.; Zullig, Keith J.; Myers, Elly M.; Smith, Megan L.; Kristjansson, Alfgeir L.; Mann, Michael J. – Assessment for Effective Intervention, 2020
The school climate measure (SCM) has demonstrated robust psychometrics in regionally diverse samples of high school-aged adolescents, but remains untested among early adolescents. Confirmatory factor analysis was used to establish construct validity and measurement indices of the SCM using a sample of early adolescents from public schools located…

Powell, Sarah R.; Fluhler, Sally K. – Assessment for Effective Intervention, 2020
To understand mathematics, children must interpret mathematics symbols. In this study, we designed a brief assessment of mathematics symbols for children in the elementary grades. For each of 23 symbols, children identified the symbol, provided the meaning of the symbol, and used the symbol. We assessed 297 children in Grades 1, 3, and 5. Internal…

Mooney, Paul; Lastrapes, Renée E. – Assessment for Effective Intervention, 2020
We conducted conceptual replications for an online-administered general outcome measure known as critical content monitoring in science. Totally, 547 Grades 4 to 6 students from a rural Louisiana school district participated. Research questions addressed criterion validity, diagnostic accuracy, growth, and social validity concerns. Criterion…
