Moore, Stephanie A.; Mayworm, Ashley M.; Stein, Rachel; Sharkey, Jill D.; Dowdy, Erin – Journal of Applied School Psychology, 2019
Despite innovations in the screening and early identification of students who may benefit from school mental health services, many schools struggle to link screening to intervention decisions, particularly at the Tier 2 level. Universal complete mental health screening, which measures strengths along with risk factors, is a strength-based approach…

Reid, Erin K.; Keller-Margulis, Milena A.; Schanding, G. Thomas; Tolar, Tammy D. – Journal of Applied School Psychology, 2019
A concerning number of students fail to achieve writing proficiency, yet little attention has been devoted to examining why this occurs. While robust evidence indicates that behavior impacts reading and math achievement, the relationship between behavior and writing skills is unclear, particularly among young students. The authors examined the…

Feeney-Kettler, Kelly A.; Kettler, Ryan J.; Dembitzer, Leah – Journal of Applied School Psychology, 2019
The authors' purpose was to evaluate the multiple-gate Preschool Behavior Screening System (PBSS) for identifying children's social, emotional, and behavioral (SEB) difficulties. The sample included 122 triads of preschool children between 3 and 5 years old and their parents and teachers. The teacher and parent samples were predominantly women and…

Lambert, Matthew C.; Garcia, Allen G.; Epstein, Michael H.; Cullinan, Douglas – Journal of Applied School Psychology, 2018
The present study examined the psychometric properties of a universal screening instrument called the Emotional and Behavioral Screener (EBS), which is designed to identify students exhibiting emotional and behavioral problems. The primary purposes of this study were to assess the measurement invariance of EBS items between Caucasian and…

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…

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.…

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…

Tusing, Mary E.; Breikjern, Nicholle A. – Journal of Applied School Psychology, 2017
Educators increasingly need to evaluate schoolwide reform efforts; however, complex program evaluations often are not feasible in schools. Through a case example, we provide a heuristic for program evaluation that is easily replicated in schools. Criterion-referenced interpretations of schoolwide screening data were used to evaluate outcomes…

Oakes, Wendy Peia; Lane, Kathleen Lynne; Cantwell, Emily D.; Royer, David J. – Journal of Applied School Psychology, 2017
There is a priority for schools to address students' social and emotional needs as is done for academic learning. Tiered models of prevention provide a framework for teaching social skills and behavioral expectations, as well as academics, with positive, proactive, evidence-based practices. Central to responding to students' needs is accurate…

Ford, Jeremy W.; Missall, Kristen N.; Hosp, John L.; Kuhle, Jennifer L. – Journal of Applied School Psychology, 2016
Advances in maze selection curriculum-based measurement have led to several published tools with technical information for interpretation (e.g., norms, benchmarks, cut-scores, classification accuracy) that have increased their usefulness for universal screening. A range of scoring practices have emerged for evaluating student performance on maze…

Hartman, Kelsey; Gresham, Frank – Journal of Applied School Psychology, 2016
Disruptive behavior in the classroom negatively affects all students' academic engagement, achievement, and behavior. Group contingencies have been proven effective in reducing disruptive behavior as part of behavior interventions in the classroom. The Good Behavior Game is a Tier 1 classwide intervention that utilizes an interdependent group…

Dowdy, Erin; Dever, Bridget V.; Raines, Tara C.; Moffa, Kathryn – Journal of Applied School Psychology, 2016
Mental health screening in schools is a progressive practice to identify students for prevention and intervention services. Multiple gating procedures, in which students are provided more intensive assessments following initial identification of risk, are aligned with prevention science and poised to enhance multi-tiered systems of support. Yet,…

Oakes, Wendy Peia; Lane, Kathleen Lynne; Ennis, Robin Parks – Journal of Applied School Psychology, 2016
This descriptive study reports data from one elementary school whose leadership team explored and installed systematic behavior screening as part of their tiered model of prevention. The authors compared student performance on two school-selected screening tools: the Student Risk Screening Scale for Internalizing and Externalizing (SRSS-IE) and…

Smith, Christopher J.; Pollard, Elena; Stein, Alexander J.; Ober-Reynolds, Sharman; Kirwan, Janet; Malligo, Amanda; Matthews, Nicole L.; Openden, Daniel; Melmed, Raun D. – Journal of Applied School Psychology, 2015
Schools regularly screen students for hearing and vision impairments because they present impediments to academic progress. For the same reason, schools should consider adding a universal screening for social challenges, which may also impede the learning process. This study reports on the development of the Social Challenges Screening…

Schanding, G. Thomas, Jr.; Nowell, Kerri P. – Journal of Applied School Psychology, 2013
Schools have begun to adopt a population-based method to conceptualizing assessment and intervention of students; however, little empirical evidence has been gathered to support this shift in service delivery. The present study examined the fit of a population-based model in identifying students' behavioral and emotional functioning using a…
