Partington, James W.; Bailey, Autumn; Partington, Scott W. – Journal of Psychoeducational Assessment, 2018
The literature contains a variety of assessment tools for measuring the skills of individuals with autism or other developmental delays, but most lack adequate empirical evidence supporting their reliability and validity. The current pilot study sought to examine the reliability of scores obtained from the Assessment of Basic Language and Learning…

Howard, Steven J.; Melhuish, Edward – Journal of Psychoeducational Assessment, 2017
Several methods of assessing executive function (EF), self-regulation, language development, and social development in young children have been developed over previous decades. Yet new technologies make available methods of assessment not previously considered. In resolving conceptual and pragmatic limitations of existing tools, the Early Years…

Koriakin, Taylor A.; Kaufman, Alan S. – Journal of Psychoeducational Assessment, 2017
Although word reading has traditionally been viewed as a foundational skill for development of reading fluency and comprehension, some children demonstrate "specific" reading comprehension problems, in the context of intact word reading. The purpose of this study was to identify specific patterns of errors associated with reading…

Furnari, Emily C.; Whittaker, Jessica; Kinzie, Mable; DeCoster, Jamie – Journal of Psychoeducational Assessment, 2017
The No Child Left Behind Act requires that 95% of students in all public elementary and secondary schools are assessed in mathematics. Unfortunately, direct assessments of young students can be timely, costly, and challenging to administer. Therefore, policy makers have looked to indirect forms of assessment, such as teachers' ratings of student…

DiStefano, Christine; Liu, Jin; Burgess, Yin – Journal of Psychoeducational Assessment, 2017
When using educational/psychological instruments, psychometric investigations should be conducted before adopting to new environments to ensure that an instrument measures the same constructs. Exploratory structural equation modeling and confirmatory factor analysis methods were used to examine the utility of the short form of the Pediatric…

DiStefano, Christine; Greer, Fred; Liu, Jin – Journal of Psychoeducational Assessment, 2016
The underlying structure of the Behavioral and Emotional Screening System, Teacher Rating Scale-Preschool was investigated with a replication sample. Ratings from more than 3,000 students were used and four alternative models were investigated. As with prior research, a bifactor model with four factors was identified. The results supported an…

Curby, Timothy W.; Johnson, Price; Mashburn, Andrew J.; Carlis, Lydia – Journal of Psychoeducational Assessment, 2016
When conducting classroom observations, researchers are often confronted with the decision of whether to conduct observations live or by using pre-recorded video. The present study focuses on comparing and contrasting observations of live and video administrations of the Classroom Assessment Scoring System-PreK (CLASS-PreK). Associations between…

Vancraeyveldt, Caroline; Verschueren, Karine; Wouters, Sofie; Van Craeyevelt, Sanne; Colpin, Hilde – Journal of Psychoeducational Assessment, 2014
Externalizing behavior (EB) in preschool has been found to predict maladjustment later in life. Therefore, it is important to identify children most at risk for continuing EB beyond preschool. To date, a number of questionnaires are available for teachers to assist in identifying those children. A frequently overlooked aspect in this screening…

Lambert, Richard G.; Kim, Do-Hong; Burts, Diane C. – Journal of Psychoeducational Assessment, 2014
An important consideration in determining the validity of an observational assessment measure for young children is the variability attributed to the child versus that ascribed to the assessor or to some other factor such as classroom context. The "Teaching Strategies GOLD"® assessment system was used to elicit teacher ratings of a…

Marcotte, Amanda M.; Parker, Christopher; Furey, William; Hands, Jessica L. – Journal of Psychoeducational Assessment, 2014
There is empirical evidence to suggest that oral language and vocabulary on entering kindergarten are the best predictors of later reading success. Identifying skills that are predictive of later achievement using psychometrically sound measurement methods is a necessary component of early intervention efforts. Currently, there are limited methods…
