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…

This pilot study aimed to test the well-being effects of a locally developed mindfulness-based program tailored for New Zealand elementary school children in comparison with an active control condition. It was hypothesized that significantly greater well-being change scores would be observed for the mindfulness group. Students (n = 106) between 9…

Cavanaugh, Brian – Journal of Applied School Psychology, 2016
Within multitiered behavioral frameworks such as schoolwide positive behavior interventions and supports (SWPBIS), it is recommended that schools use multiple sources of data to identify students at risk who may benefit from additional intervention. To date, much of the research in this area has focused on examining either systematic screening…

Kilgus, Stephen P.; Fallon, Lindsay M.; Feinberg, Adam B. – Journal of Applied School Psychology, 2016
Prior research has suggested Check-In/Check-Out (CICO) effectiveness is linked to the function of problem behavior. Though effective for students whose misbehavior occurs to gain attention, findings are equivocal for behavior that occurs to escape academic tasks. The purpose of this study was to therefore evaluate a modification to CICO, wherein…

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,…
