Olson, Natasha A.; Panahon, Carlos J.; Hilt-Panahon, Alexandra – Journal of Applied School Psychology, 2019
Stability balls are promoted as an effective alternative to chairs at a classwide level, yet there are no published studies documenting classwide outcomes. Therefore, the purpose of this study was to investigate classwide effects of stability balls and attempt to provide empirical support for their use. Using an A-B-A-B reversal design, this study…

Data were available for 33 interventionists serving 658 students in Grades 4-6 across one school year. A series of multilevel models were fit to the…

This study evaluated the influence of students' perceptions of teachers' antibullying behavior and sense of school belonging on bullying victimization among elementary school students (N = 110). The authors used structural equation modeling to test a mediational model in which they hypothesized that sense of school belonging would mediate the…

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…

Keller-Margulis, Milena; McQuillin, Samuel D.; Castañeda, Juan Javier; Ochs, Sarah; Jones, John H. – Journal of Applied School Psychology, 2018
Multitiered systems of support depend on screening technology to identify students at risk. The purpose of this study was to examine the use of a computer-adaptive test and latent class growth analysis (LCGA) to identify students at risk in reading with focus on the use of this methodology to characterize student performance in screening.…

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…
