Hier, Bridget O.; Eckert, Tanya L.; Viney, Elizabeth A. – School Psychology Review, 2019
This study examined whether 2 evidence-based intervention strategies resulted in maintenance and generalization of writing fluency gains. In this study, 115 third-grade students were randomly assigned to a performance feedback intervention condition, a goal setting intervention condition, or a control condition. Neither intervention strategy…

Martin, Ryan J.; Codding, Robin S.; Collier-Meek, Melissa A.; Gould, Kaitlin M.; DeFouw, Emily R.; Volpe, Robert J. – School Psychology Review, 2019
Fact fluency is an important prerequisite to mastering more complex and abstract mathematics principles. Delivering math interventions in the home setting may be a feasible way to expose students to necessary supports and improve math outcomes. The present study utilized a multiple baseline design across parent-student dyads to examine the impact…

Zawoyski, Andrea; Ardoin, Scott P. – School Psychology Review, 2019
Reading comprehension assessments often include multiple-choice (MC) questions, but some researchers doubt their validity in measuring comprehension. Consequently, new assessments may include more short-answer (SA) questions. The current study contributes to the research comparing MC and SA questions by evaluating the effects of anticipated…

Codding, Robin S.; Volpe, Robert J.; Martin, Ryan J.; Krebs, Genevieve – School Psychology Review, 2019
The number of opportunities to respond (OTR) and spacing (massed or distributed practice) of practice sessions are important variables to consider in instructional design. The purpose of this pilot study was to compare the impact of these variables on trajectories of mathematics fluency. Second- and third-grade students (N = 112) were randomly…

Dever, Bridget V.; Dowdy, Erin; DiStefano, Christine – School Psychology Review, 2018
Preschool has been recognized as an optimal time to provide behavioral and emotional supports to children; however, there is a need to examine the stability, accuracy, and predictive validity of universal emotional and behavioral screening scores in early childhood to inform procedures for repeated screenings across time. The present study…

VanDerHeyden, Amanda M.; Codding, Robin S.; Martin, Ryan – School Psychology Review, 2017
Schools need evidence-based guidance on which measures in mathematics, administered under what particular set of conditions (e.g., time of year), provide the most useful prediction. The purpose of this study was to examine decision accuracy among commonly used screening measures with a priority toward identifying the least costly screening…

Koenig, Elizabeth A.; Eckert, Tanya L.; Hier, Bridget O. – School Psychology Review, 2016
Although performance feedback interventions successfully lead to improvements in students' performance, research suggests that the combination of feedback and goal setting leads to greater performance than either component alone and that graphing performance in relation to a goal can lead to improvements in academic performance. The goal of the…

Van Norman, Ethan R.; Christ, Theodore J. – School Psychology Review, 2016
Despite their widespread use, there is little research to support the accuracy of curriculum-based measurement of reading progress monitoring decision rules. The purpose of this study was to investigate the accuracy of a common data point decision rule. This study used a three-point rule with a goal line of 1.50 words read correctly per minute…

January, Stacy-Ann A.; Ardoin, Scott P.; Christ, Theodore J.; Eckert, Tanya L.; White, Mary Jane – School Psychology Review, 2016
Universal screening in elementary schools often includes administering curriculum-based measurement in reading (CBM-R); but in first grade, nonsense word fluency (NWF) and, to a lesser extent, word identification fluency (WIF) are used because of concerns that CBM-R is too difficult for emerging readers. This study used Kane's argument-based…

Doabler, Christian T.; Clarke, Ben; Kosty, Derek B.; Baker, Scott K.; Smolkowski, Keith; Fien, Hank – School Psychology Review, 2016
There is a dearth of research on Tier 1 instruction designed to improve the mathematics achievement of English learners. This study examined the impact of a core kindergarten mathematics curriculum on the mathematics achievement of Spanish-speaking English learners (SS-ELs). Secondary aims tested for differential response to the curriculum among…

Rabiner, David L.; Godwin, Jennifer; Dodge, Kenneth A. – School Psychology Review, 2016
Research predicting academic achievement from early academic, attention, and socioemotional skills has largely focused on elementary school outcomes and rarely included peer assessments of social competence. We examined associations between these early child characteristics and academic outcomes into young adulthood using the Fast Track normative…

Eisenhower, Abbey; Taylor, Heather; Baker, Bruce L. – School Psychology Review, 2016
Starting Strong in Kindergarten (Starting Strong) is a school-based indicated prevention targeting behavior problems, student-teacher relationships, and parent-school connectedness for children with or at risk for disruptive behavior problems during the transition to kindergarten. By use of a block-randomized, controlled trial to test program…

Booster, Genery D.; Mautone, Jennifer A.; Nissley-Tsiopinis, Jenelle; Van Dyke, Devin; Power, Thomas J. – School Psychology Review, 2016
Accumulating research has identified family behavioral interventions as an empirically supported psychosocial treatment for students with attention deficit hyperactivity disorder (ADHD). The mechanisms behind the effectiveness of these interventions, however, have been less well studied. The current study examined possible mediators of improvement…

Brock, Laura L.; Curby, Timothy W. – School Psychology Review, 2016
Teachers' social interactions with children are a salient aspect of the classroom environment. An emerging line of research suggests teachers' emotional support consistency is an important predictor of children's academic and social outcomes. Yet individual differences determine the contribution of classroom affordances to children's adjustment.…

Radley, Keith C.; Dart, Evan H.; O'Handley, Roderick D. – School Psychology Review, 2016
The current study investigated the effectiveness of the Quiet Classroom Game, an interdependent group contingency using an iPad loaded with a decibel meter app, for increasing academically engaged behavior. Three first-grade classrooms in the southeastern United States, identified as displaying high levels of noise and disruptive behavior, were…
