Stahmer, Aubyn C.; Suhrheinrich, Jessica; Schetter, Patricia L.; Hassrick, Elizabeth McGee – Grantee Submission, 2018
This study examines how system-wide (i.e., region, district, and school) mechanisms such as leadership support, training requirements, structure, collaboration, and education affect the use of evidence-based practices (EBPs) in schools and how this affects the outcomes for students with autism spectrum disorder (ASD). Despite growing evidence for…

We conducted a 14-week experimental study of 2 versions of a relatively comprehensive RC intervention that involved 50 classroom teachers, 15 tutors, and 120 children drawn in equal proportions from grades 3 and 5 in 13 schools in a large urban school district. Students were randomly assigned in equal numbers to the 2 tutoring conditions and a…

Foorman, Barbara R.; Herrera, Sarah; Dombek, Jennifer – Grantee Submission, 2018
This randomized controlled trial in 55 low-performing schools across Florida compared 2 early literacy interventions--1 using stand-alone materials and 1 using materials embedded in the existing core reading/language arts program. A total of 3,447 students who were below the 30th percentile in vocabulary and reading-related skills participated in…

Ennis, Robin Parks; Lane, Kathleen Lynne; Oakes, Wendy Peia – Grantee Submission, 2018
Instructional choice is a low-intensity strategy that can improve academic engagement. In this study, we investigated the effects of within-activity choices offered during math by third-grade teachers to participating students with behavioral and academic needs. We utilized a professional development model to train teachers to implement…

Buzhardt, Jay; Greenwood, Charles R.; Walker, Dale; Jia, Fan; Schnitz, Alana G.; Higgins, Susan; Montagna, Debra; Muehe, Christine – Grantee Submission, 2018
Programs serving infants and toddlers are expected to use child data to inform decisions about intervention services; however, few tools exist to support these efforts. The Making Online Decisions (MOD) system is an adaptive intervention that guides early educators' data-based intervention decision making for infants and toddlers at risk for…

Anderson, Cynthia M.; Smith, Tristram; Iovannone, Rose – Grantee Submission, 2018
There is a large gap between research-based interventions for supporting children with autism spectrum disorder (ASD) and current practices implemented by educators to meet the needs of these children in typical school settings. Myriad reasons for this gap exist including the external validity of existing research, the complexity of ASD, and…

Zimmerman, Kathleen N.; Ledford, Jennifer R.; Severini, Katherine E.; Pustejovsky, James E.; Barton, Erin E.; Lloyd, Blair P. – Grantee Submission, 2018
Tools for evaluating the quality and rigor of single case research designs (SCD) are often used when conducting SCD syntheses. Preferred components include evaluations of design features related to the internal validity of SCD to obtain quality and/or rigor ratings. Three tools for evaluating the quality and rigor of SCD (Council for Exceptional…

Zimmerman, Kathleen N.; Pustejovsky, James E.; Ledford, Jennifer R.; Barton, Erin E.; Severini, Katherine E.; Lloyd, Blair P. – Grantee Submission, 2018
Varying methods for evaluating the outcomes of single case research designs (SCD) are currently used in reviews and meta-analyses of interventions. Quantitative effect size measures are often presented alongside visual analysis conclusions. Six measures across two classes--overlap measures (percentage non-overlapping data, improvement rate…

Wong, Vivian C.; Steiner, Peter M.; Anglin, Kylie L. – Grantee Submission, 2018
Given the widespread use of non-experimental (NE) methods for assessing program impacts, there is a strong need to know whether NE approaches yield causally valid results in field settings. In within-study comparison (WSC) designs, the researcher compares treatment effects from an NE with those obtained from a randomized experiment that shares the…

Ansari, Arya; Purtell, Kelly M. – Grantee Submission, 2018
Although scientific research has clearly shown that preschool programs prepare children for kindergarten, increasing attention has been drawn to whether these early investments in children's education have long-term impacts. Here, we argue that long-term impacts of preschool cannot be viewed in isolation from children's subsequent experiences and,…
