Miciak, Jeremy; Cirino, Paul T.; Ahmed, Yusra; Reid, Erin; Vaughn, Sharon – Learning Disability Quarterly, 2019
Inadequate responders demonstrate significant risk for learning disabilities. Previous investigations of the cognitive profiles of inadequate and adequate responders have not included measures of executive functions (EFs), which have well-documented associations to reading comprehension. We evaluated EF performance on a common factor comprised of…

Solis, Michael; Miciak, Jeremy; Vaughn, Sharon; Fletcher, Jack M. – Learning Disability Quarterly, 2014
We describe findings from a series of longitudinal studies utilizing a response to intervention framework implemented over 3 years with students in Grades 6 through 8 with reading disabilities and poor reading comprehension. Students were identified based on reading comprehension scores in Grade 5 (n = 1,083) and then randomized to treatment or…

Reed, Deborah K.; Vaughn, Sharon; Petscher, Yaacov – Learning Disability Quarterly, 2012
In this study, the authors examined the validity of a holistically scored retell within a confirmatory factor analysis framework by comparing the fit of a three-factor model of reading with the data from a diverse sample of seventh and eighth graders. The final model demonstrated adequate fit, [chi][squared](32) = 97.316; comparative fit index =…

Linan-Thompson, Sylvia; Cirino, Paul T.; Vaughn, Sharon – Learning Disability Quarterly, 2007
Using an extant database, we examined three grade 1 criteria for identifying response to intervention (RTI) in English language learners (ELLs): (a) set benchmark criteria with a standard score above 95 (37th %ile) on both decoding and comprehension measures and a raw score of 40 or more correct words per minute (CWPM) on oral reading fluency; (b)…

Bryant, Diane Pedrotty; Vaughn, Sharon; Linan-Thompson, Sylvia; Ugel, Nicole; Hamff, Allison; Hougen, Marty – Learning Disability Quarterly, 2000
Ten sixth-grade teachers and 60 students (14 with reading disabilities, 17 low-achieving students, and 29 typical students) participated in a four-month professional development and intervention program designed to enhance reading outcomes using word identification, fluency, and content area comprehension strategies. All three groups improved in…
