Oslund, Eric L.; Simmons, Deborah C.; Hagan-Burke, Shanna; Kwok, Oi-Man; Simmons, Leslie E.; Taylor, Aaron B.; Coyne, Michael D. – Learning Disability Quarterly, 2015
This study examined the changing role and longitudinal predictive validity of curriculum-embedded progress-monitoring measures (CEMs ) for kindergarten students receiving Tier 2 intervention and identified as at risk of developing reading difficulties. Multiple measures were examined to determine whether they could predict comprehensive latent…

Scott, Amy N.; Boynton Hauerwas, Laura; Brown, Rachel D. – Learning Disability Quarterly, 2014
This study investigates how state Departments of Education address the needs of culturally and linguistically diverse (CLD) students as they relate to the identification of students with a specific learning disability (SLD). A qualitative research design of directed content analysis was used to examine each state's regulatory criteria for SLD, as…

Jitendra, Asha K.; Dupuis, Danielle N.; Zaslofsky, Anne F. – Learning Disability Quarterly, 2014
This purpose of this study was to examine the reliability and validity of a curriculum-based measure of word problem solving (CBM-WPS) as an indicator of performance and progress in a sample of 136 third-grade students at risk for mathematics difficulties (MDs) instructed in a standards-based mathematics curriculum. Students completed the CBM-WPS…

Greulich, Luana; Al Otaiba, Stephanie; Schatschneider, Christopher; Wanzek, Jeanne; Ortiz, Miriam; Wagner, Richard K. – Learning Disability Quarterly, 2014
The purpose of this study was to use a mixed methods approach to learn about inadequate response to a year-long multi-tier response to intervention (RTI) model that allowed first-grade students to move up and down tiers. Participants were 156 students who received supplemental intervention services during a larger multi-tier RTI study involving…

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…

Lam, Elizabeth A.; McMaster, Kristen L. – Learning Disability Quarterly, 2014
The purpose of this review was to update previous reviews on factors related to students' responsiveness to early literacy intervention. The 14 studies in this synthesis used experimental designs, provided small-group or one-on-one reading interventions, and analyzed factors related to responsiveness to those interventions. Participants were…

Wanzek, Jeanne; Roberts, Greg; Al Otaiba, Stephanie; Kent, Shawn C. – Learning Disability Quarterly, 2014
For many students at risk of reading difficulties, effective, early reading instruction can improve reading outcomes and set them on a positive reading trajectory. Thus, response-to-intervention models include a focus on a student's Tier I reading instruction as one element for preventing reading difficulties and identifying students with a…
