Sutherland, Kevin S; Conroy, Maureen A; McLeod, Bryce D; Algina, James; Kunemund, Rachel L – Grantee Submission, 2018
Teachers sometimes struggle to deliver evidence based programs designed to prevent and ameliorate chronic problem behaviors of young children with integrity. Identifying factors associated with variations in the quantity and quality of delivery is thus an important goal for the field. This study investigated factors associated with teacher…

Pustejovsky, James E. – Grantee Submission, 2018
A wide variety of effect size indices have been proposed for quantifying the magnitude of treatment effects in single-case designs. Commonly used measures include parametric indices such as the standardized mean difference, as well as non-overlap measures such as the percentage of non-overlapping data, improvement rate difference, and non-overlap…

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…

Wolbers, Kimberly; Dostal, Hannah; Graham, Steve; Branum-Martin, Lee; Kilpatrick, Jennifer; Saulsburry, Rachel – Grantee Submission, 2018
A quasi-experimental study was conducted to examine the impact of Strategic and Interactive Writing Instruction on 3rd-5th grade deaf and hard of hearing students' writing and written language compared to a business-as-usual condition (treatment group N = 41, comparison group N = 22). A total of 18 hours of instruction was provided for each of two…

Herrmann-Abell, Cari F.; Hardcastle, Joseph; DeBoer, George E. – Grantee Submission, 2018
We compared students' performance on a paper-based test (PBT) and three computer-based tests (CBTs). The three computer-based tests used different test navigation and answer selection features, allowing us to examine how these features affect student performance. The study sample consisted of 9,698 fourth through twelfth grade students from across…

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…

MacArthur, Charles A.; Jennings, Amanda; Philippakos, Zoi A. – Grantee Submission, 2018
The study developed a model of linguistic constructs to predict writing quality for college basic writers and analyzed how those constructs changed following instruction. Analysis used a corpus of argumentative essays from a quasi-experimental, instructional study with 252 students (MacArthur, Philippakos, & Ianetta, 2015) that found large…

Rieth, Sarah R.; Haine-Schlagel, Rachel; Burgeson, Marilee; Searcy, Karyn; Dickson, Kelsey S.; Stahmer, Aubyn C. – Grantee Submission, 2018
Naturalistic developmental behavioral interventions include an explicit focus on coaching parents to use therapy techniques in daily routines and are considered best practice for young children with autism. Unfortunately, these approaches are not widely used in community settings, possibly due to the clinical expertise and training required. This…

Sinharay, Sandip – Grantee Submission, 2018
Producers and consumers of test scores are increasingly concerned about fraudulent behavior before and during the test. There exist several statistical or psychometric methods for detecting fraudulent behavior on tests. This paper provides a review of the Bayesian approaches among them. Four hitherto-unpublished real data examples are provided to…

Sinharay, Sandip – Grantee Submission, 2018
Tatsuoka (1984) suggested several extended caution indices and their standardized versions that have been used as person-fit statistics by researchers such as Drasgow, Levine, and McLaughlin (1987), Glas and Meijer (2003), and Molenaar and Hoijtink (1990). However, these indices are only defined for tests with dichotomous items. This paper extends…

Lindo, Endia J.; Weiser, Beverly; Cheatham, Jennifer P.; Allor, Jill H. – Grantee Submission, 2018
This study examines the effectiveness of minimally trained tutors providing a highly structured tutoring intervention for struggling readers. We screened students in Grades K-6 for participation in an after-school tutoring program. We randomly assigned those students not meeting the benchmark on a reading screening measure to either a tutoring…

Ostrosky, Michaelene M.; Favazza, Paddy C.; Yang, Hsiu-Wen; McLaughlin, Katelyn; Stalega, Melissa – Grantee Submission, 2018
The early years are the ideal time to support the physical activity level of children while also addressing readiness skills. With growing evidence of the link between physical activity and child development, it is imperative to find ways to routinely support physical activity. However, research has shown that children do not spend enough time in…
