Begeny, John C.; Levy, Rebecca A.; Field, Stacey A. – Journal of Applied School Psychology, 2018
Reading fluency is necessary for reading comprehension, but approximately 40% of U.S. fourth-grade students have inadequate reading fluency skills. Because small-group (SG) instruction is often used as a first line of intervention for struggling readers, SG instruction targeting deficiencies in text reading fluency ought to be part of every…

Increasing numbers of children raised by grandparents are students in schools. Their substitute family structure and precursors to the emergence of this family structure have implications for the children's school performance. Research suggests teachers view these children as at risk for difficult school functioning. The aforementioned judgment is…

Frisby, Craig; Wang, Ze – Journal of Applied School Psychology, 2018
Although spelling skill progress has typically been studied within the context of students' responses to written story starters (Deno, Marsten, & Mirkin, 1982; Fuchs & Fuchs, 2011; Hosp, Hosp, & Howell, 2007; Shinn & Shinn, 2002), there has been little research conducted within a curriculum-based measurement framework that has…

Wingate, Emily J.; Suldo, Shannon M.; Peterson, Rebekah K. S. – Journal of Applied School Psychology, 2018
Research on the importance of complete mental health has led to increased focus on students' subjective well-being (i.e., happiness and life satisfaction) coupled with the traditional attention to psychopathology. Although screeners for psychopathology abound, the present project is novel in applying best practices in universal screening to grade…

Although there is substantial functional behavioral assessment (FBA) literature suggesting that function-based interventions are effective for improving problem behavior, only a limited number of studies have examined the effectiveness of function-based antecedent versus consequent interventions. Additionally, although there has been a recent…

Noltemeyer, Amity; Petrasek, Michael; Stine, Karen; Palmer, Katelyn; Meehan, Cricket; Jordan, Emily – Journal of Applied School Psychology, 2018
With the increasing use of Positive Behavioral Interventions and Supports (PBIS) nationally, several states have developed systems to recognize exemplar schools that are implementing PBIS with fidelity. These systems serve the dual purpose of identifying model PBIS schools for other schools to emulate while also reinforcing schools' effective PBIS…

Taylor, Crystal N.; Kilgus, Stephen P.; Huang, Francis – Journal of Applied School Psychology, 2018
In recent years, schools have started implementing preventive practices such as universal screening. Yet, researchers have not evaluated the extent to which universal screening contributes to academic and behavioral outcomes. The purpose of this study was to evaluate the treatment utility of universal screening for behavioral risk. Student…

Maykel, Cheryl; Bray, Melissa; Rogers, H. Jane – Journal of Applied School Psychology, 2018
Few youths engage in the recommended amount of physical activity (PA). Many educators have concerns about increasing PA in schools, including taking time from academics, though studies show that school-based PA can be beneficial to academics. This study extends previous research on the relationship between school-based PA and time on task (TOT) by…

Wu, Shengtian; Gadke, Daniel L.; Stratton, Kasee K. – Journal of Applied School Psychology, 2018
Video self-modeling (VSM) has been used widely in the literature to teach a range of prosocial behaviors. More recently, VSM has been explored as both a supplement and stand-alone option to teach academic skills, particularly oral reading fluency. However, the literature is relatively sparse pertaining to the effects of video modeling, void of any…
