Anderson, Jeffrey A.; Howland, Allison A.; McCoach, D. Betsy – Preventing School Failure, 2015

They used a repeated acquisition design across 8 second-grade students identified as at risk for reading difficulties. More participants performed better when they read words on the reading racetrack than on the list; however, results were…

Data analysis from the larger study yielded a strong effect size for children in the experimental group who used decodable text for reading practice. The pre- and posttest scores of one child included in the treatment were not used in the statistical…

Jolivette, Kristine; Lassman, Kelley A.; Wehby, Joseph H. – Preventing School Failure, 1998
This case study of a second grader with emotional/behavior disorders and poor academic progress, especially in mathematics, demonstrates the use of functional assessment, development of a hypothesis, intervention development, and intervention evaluation. The case study also shows how functional assessment can be integrated into the classroom…
