Grapin, Sally L.; Waldron, Nancy; Joyce-Beaulieu, Diana – Psychology in the Schools, 2019
Because several studies have investigated student outcomes in schools implementing Response to Intervention (RtI), relatively little research has investigated the impact of implementation on students' long-term achievement outcomes (i.e., several years after exposure). The purpose of this study was to describe one elementary school's RtI…

The current study examined whether HAB is also related to conflict with teachers, an important predictor of academic and social success in school-aged children. A total of 282 second to fourth grade boys in 74 classrooms completed a self-report…

Sun, Meilu; Du, Jianxia; Xu, Jianzhong; Liu, Fangtong – Psychology in the Schools, 2019
The current study validated the Homework Goal Orientation Scale (HGOS) for secondary school students. Results revealed that HGOS consisted of two distinct but related subscales: mastery-approach and performance-approach. Given satisfactory measurement invariance, the latent mean differences were then examined across gender (males vs. females) and…

Niileksela, Christopher R.; Templin, Jonathan – Psychology in the Schools, 2019
Confirmatory latent profile analysis (CLPA) was used with the normative sample from the "Kaufman Test of Educational Achievement," 3rd ed. (KTEA-3) to determine whether it was possible to identify a latent class of individuals whose scores were consistent with the academic strengths and weaknesses related to dyslexia. The CLPA identified…

Green, Jennifer H.; Passarelli, Rebecca E.; Smith-Millman, Mills K.; Wagers, Keshia; Kalomiris, Anne E.; Scott, Madeline N. – Psychology in the Schools, 2019
Clinicians and training programs strive to implement evidence-based practices and manualized treatments with fidelity. However, the constraints of a local setting may limit the extent to which this is possible. In the current study, an adapted model of an evidence-based social-emotional learning small group curriculum, the Incredible Years…

Kulkarni, Tara; Sullivan, Amanda L. – Psychology in the Schools, 2019
Recent studies report the cumulative prevalence of behavioral disorders among school-age children to be second only to anxiety disorders. Unfortunately, by the time behavior has been identified as needing special education services, patterns of disruptive and externalizing behavior have often become unremitting. If at-risk behavior can be reliably…

Spelling has been identified as a key transcription skill that emerges during the elementary years as students learn how to write and subsequently develop fluency with writing, making the assessment of spelling a critical component of evaluation systems within schools. This includes the use of curriculum-based measures of writing (CBM-W). This…
