  • Anonymous Versus Self-Identified Response Formats for School Mental Health
           Screening

    • Free pre-print version: Loading...

      Authors: Rhea Wagle, Erin Dowdy, Michael J. Furlong, Karen Nylund-Gibson, Delwin Carter, Tameisha Hinton
      Abstract: Assessment for Effective Intervention, Ahead of Print.
      Schools are an essential setting for mental health supports and services for students. To support student well-being, schools engage in universal mental health screening to identify students in need of support and to provide surveillance data for district-wide or state-wide policy changes. Mental health data have been collected via anonymous and self-identified response formats depending on the purpose of the screening (i.e., surveillance and screening, respectively). However, most surveys do not provide psychometric evidence for use in both types of response formats. The current study examined whether responses to the Social Emotional Health Survey–Secondary (SEHS-S), a school mental health survey, are comparable when administered using anonymous versus self-identified response formats. The study participants were from one high school and completed the SEHS-S using self-identified (n = 1,700) and anonymous (n = 1,667) formats. Full measurement invariance was found across the two response formats. Both substantial and minimal latent mean differences were detected. Implications for the use and interpretation of the SEHS-S for schoolwide mental health are discussed.

  • Using Interval Likelihood Ratios in Gated Screening: A Direct Replication
           Study

      Authors: David A. Klingbeil, Ethan R. Van Norman, Peter M. Nelson
      Abstract: Assessment for Effective Intervention, Ahead of Print.
      This direct replication study compared the use of dichotomized likelihood ratios and interval likelihood ratios, derived using a prior sample of students, for predicting math risk in middle school. Data from the prior year state test and the Measures of Academic Progress were analyzed to evaluate differences in the efficiency and diagnostic accuracy of gated screening decisions. Post-test probabilities were interpreted using a threshold decision-making model to classify student risk during screening. Using interval likelihood ratios led to fewer students requiring additional testing after the first gate. But, when interval likelihood ratios were used, three tests were required to classify sixth and seventh grade students as at-risk or not at-risk. Only two tests were needed to classify students as at-risk or not at-risk when dichotomized likelihood ratios were used. Acceptable sensitivity and specificity estimates were obtained, regardless of the type of likelihood ratios used to estimate post-test probabilities. When predicting academic risk, interval likelihood ratios may be best reserved for situations where at least three successive tests are available to be used in a gated screening model.

  • Aspects of Technical Adequacy of an Early-Writing Measure for English
           Language Learners in Grades 1 to 3

      Authors: R. Alex Smith, Erica S. Lembke
      Abstract: Assessment for Effective Intervention, Ahead of Print.
      This study examined the technical adequacy of Picture Word, a type of Writing Curriculum-Based Measurement, with 73 English learners (ELs) with beginning to intermediate English language proficiency in Grades 1, 2, and 3. The ELs in this study attended schools in one Midwestern school district employing an English-only model of instruction and spoke a variety of native languages. ELs completed two forms of Picture Word in the fall, winter, and spring. The criterion measure, a common English language proficiency assessment, was administered in the winter. Results indicated that Picture Word was not appropriate for the first-grade EL participants but showed promise for second- and third-grade ELs.

  • Relative Contribution of Verbal Working Memory and Attention to Child
           Language

    • Free pre-print version: Loading...

      Authors: Jason C. Chow, Eric Ekholm, Christine L. Bae
      Abstract: Assessment for Effective Intervention, Ahead of Print.
      It is common in intervention research to use measures of working memory either as an explanatory or control variable. This study examines the contribution of cognitive abilities, including verbal working memory (WM) and attention, to language performance in first- and second-grade children. We assessed children (N = 414) on two forms of verbal WM, one attention, and two standardized assessments of language. Scores from all three measures of cognitive abilities significantly predicted latent language (64% variance). Both verbal WM measures were stronger predictors of a latent language variable compared to attention. Exploratory analyses revealed differences in the role of cognitive variables to language subdomains. The findings deepen our understanding on the relative associations between verbal WM, attention, and language. We conclude that it is important to consider the language demands of tasks when making decisions about assessment of verbal WM, specifically in the context of intervention research in domains that require language.

  • A Comparison of Teacher and Student Ratings in a Self-Monitoring
           Intervention

      Authors: Allison Bruhn, Sheila Barron, Bailey Copeland, Sara Estrapala, Ashley Rila, Joseph Wehby
      Abstract: Assessment for Effective Intervention, Ahead of Print.
      Self-monitoring interventions for students with challenging behavior are often teacher-managed rather than self-managed. Teachers direct these interventions by completing parallel monitoring procedures, providing feedback, and delivering contingent reinforcement to students when they monitor accurately. However, within self-monitoring interventions, the degree to which teachers and students agree in their assessment of students’ behavior is unknown. In this study, a self-monitoring intervention in which both teachers and students rated the students’ behavior, we analyzed 249 fixed interval ratings of behavior from 19 student/teacher pairs to determine the relationship between ratings within and across teacher/student pairs. We found a strong correlation overall (r =.91), although variability existed within individual pairs and student ratings tended to be higher than teacher ratings. We discuss implications for practice, limitations, and future directions.

      Abstract: Assessment for Effective Intervention, Ahead of Print.
      Stealth assessment has been successfully embedded in educational games to measure students’ learning in an unobtrusive and supportive way. This study explored the possibility of applying stealth assessment in a digital reading platform and sought to identify potential in-system indicators of students’ digital learning outcomes. Utilizing the user log data from third- to fifth-grade students (n = 573) who read an interactive Word Knowledge E-Book, we examined various user log variables and their associations with word knowledge and strategic reading outcomes. Descriptive analysis provided a depiction of the real-time reading processes and behaviors in which students engaged while digitally reading. Multiple regression analysis with classroom fixed effects demonstrated that user log variables relevant to answering questions and making decisions (i.e., percentage of embedded questions answered correctly; number of attempts to answer the questions; and making implausible decisions) were significantly associated with students’ word knowledge and strategic reading outcomes. Variables indicating reading time and frequency, however, were not significantly associated with these outcomes. This study highlights the potential of interactive e-books as another digital learning environment to establish stealth assessment, which may allow researchers and educators to track students’ reading processes and predict reading outcomes while supporting digital learning.

      Much attention has been given to the development and validation of measures of growth mindset and its impact on learning, but the previous work has largely been focused on general measures of growth mindset. This research was focused on establishing the psychometric properties of a reading mindset (RM) measure among a sample of upper elementary school students and validating the measure through its relations with standardized measures of word reading and comprehension. The RM measure was developed to capture student’s beliefs about their ability, learning goals, and effort during reading. Item response theory was used to select items that optimally measured the RM measure from a pool of existing items from previous research. The final five-item RM measure predicted reading comprehension outcomes above and beyond the effects of word reading, indicating that this measure may be an important tool for diagnosing noncognitive areas of improvement for developing readers. The implications, limitations, and future directions for expanding upon the measure were discussed.

      Abstract: Assessment for Effective Intervention, Ahead of Print.
      The overall aim of the current investigation was to develop and validate the initial version of the Minnesota Inference Assessment (MIA). MIA is a web-based measure of inference processes in K–2. MIA leverages the affordances of different media to evaluate inference processes in a nonreading context, using age-appropriate fiction and nonfiction videos coupled with questioning. We evaluated MIA’s technical adequacy in a proof-of-concept study. Taken together, the results support the interpretation that MIA shows promise as a valid and reliable measure of inferencing in a nonreading context for students in Grades K–2. Future directions involve further development of multiple, parallel forms that can be used for progress monitoring in K–2.

  • Addressing the Large Standard Error of Traditional CBM-R: Estimating the
           Conditional Standard Error of a Model-Based Estimate of CBM-R

      Abstract: Assessment for Effective Intervention, Ahead of Print.
      Curriculum-based measurement of oral reading fluency (CBM-R) is widely used across the country as a quick measure of reading proficiency that also serves as a good predictor of comprehension and overall reading achievement, but has several practical and technical inadequacies, including a large standard error of measurement (SEM). Reducing the SEM of CBM-R scores has positive implications for educators using these measures to screen or monitor student growth. The purpose of this study was to compare the SEM of traditional CBM-R words correct per minute (WCPM) fluency scores and the conditional SEM (CSEM) of model-based WCPM estimates, particularly for students with or at risk of poor reading outcomes. We found (a) the average CSEM for the model-based WCPM estimates was substantially smaller than the reported SEMs of traditional CBM-R systems, especially for scores at/below the 25th percentile, and (b) a large proportion (84%) of sample scores, and an even larger proportion of scores at/below the 25th percentile (about 99%) had a smaller CSEM than the reported SEMs of traditional CBM-R systems.

      Abstract: Assessment for Effective Intervention, Ahead of Print.
      This article documents the results of a meta-analysis of available correlational validity evidence for the Social Skills Improvement System Performance Screening Guide (SSIS-PSG), which is a brief teacher-completed rating scale designed to be used as part of universal screening procedures. Article inclusion criteria included (a) published in English in a peer-reviewed journal, (b) administration of the PSG, and (c) provided validity evidence representative of the relationship between PSG scores and scores on related variables. Ten studies yielding 147 correlation coefficients met criteria for inclusion. Data were extracted following established procedures in validity generalization and meta-analytic research. Extracted coefficients were of the expected direction and magnitude with theoretically aligned constructs, thereby providing evidence of convergent validity (e.g., PSG Math and Reading items were most strongly correlated with academic performance and academic behavior variables, with effect sizes ranging from .708 to .740; PSG Prosocial Behavior and Motivation to Learn items were most strongly correlated with broadband externalizing/internalizing problems, with effect sizes ranging from −.706 to −.717), although Prosocial Behavior and Motivation to Learn were not as effective at discriminating among divergent constructs. These results generally support the utility of the PSG in correlating with academic and social/behavioral outcomes in the schools.

      Abstract: Assessment for Effective Intervention, Ahead of Print.
      The purpose of this study was to evaluate the structural validity, internal consistency, and measurement invariance of scores from the Social, Academic, and Emotional Behavior Risk Screener–Student Rating Scale (mySAEBRS), a student self-report universal screening tool. Participants included 24,094 K–12 students who completed the mySAEBRS. Confirmatory factor analyses (CFAs) supported the fit of a bifactor model, wherein each item corresponding to both a general factor (i.e., Total Behavior) and one of three narrow factors (i.e., Social Behavior, Academic Behavior, and Emotional Behavior). Such model fit was superior to that of alternative factor structures (i.e., unidimensional, correlated-factor, and higher order). A review of pattern coefficients suggested items were relatively split, with some items loading higher on the general factor and others loading higher on their narrow factor. A series of multigroup CFAs supported the configural and metric invariance of the bifactor model, while yielding less consistent support for scalar/threshold invariance. Omega reliability coefficients indicated each mySAEBRS scale was associated with acceptable internal consistency (>.70). However, when accounting for other factors, only the Total Behavior, Social Behavior, and Emotional Behavior scales demonstrated acceptable internal consistency (i.e.,>.50). Implications for practice and directions for future research are discussed.

  • Does Training Predict Second-Grade Teachers’ Use of Student Data for
           Decision-Making in Reading and Mathematics'

      Abstract: Assessment for Effective Intervention, Ahead of Print.
      Although national legislation and policy call for the use of student assessment data to support instruction, evidence suggests that teachers lack the knowledge and skills required to effectively use data. Previous studies have demonstrated the potential of training for increasing immediate teacher outcomes (i.e., knowledge, skills, and beliefs), yet research is still needed that investigates whether these immediate learning outcomes correspond to improved practices in reading and math instruction. Using the Early Childhood Longitudinal Survey: Kindergarten (2011), the present study sought to investigate whether data-focused training predicted teacher use of data for four prevalent decision-making outcomes: monitor progress on specific skills, identify skill deficits, monitor overall progress of students performing below benchmark, and determine placement in instructional tiers. Results indicate that professional development to use data to identify struggling learners and coursework focused on the use of assessment to select interventions and supports significantly predicted teachers’ frequent use of data across key decision-making dimensions in reading instruction. Results for math instruction differ in that more frequent data use was not consistent across outcomes, more training sessions were needed, and professional development to use data to guide instruction significantly predicted use of data to monitor students who performed below benchmark.

  • Associations Between Teacher Ratings and Direct Assessment of Elementary
           Students’ Speech and Language Skills

      Authors: Jason C. Chow, Jennifer R. Frey, Lauren H. Naples
      Abstract: Assessment for Effective Intervention, Ahead of Print.
      We investigated the associations between teacher-rated and direct assessments of early elementary students’ speech and language skills to explore whether using teachers as primary screeners yielded assessment data that reliably identified young students with language difficulties who many need a more comprehensive evaluation. We assessed first- and second-grade students (N = 365) on syntax, morphology, and vocabulary, screened for global speech and language development, and analyzed a teacher-completed norm-referenced communication rating scale. Teacher-rated language significantly predicted students’ latent language skills, and teachers’ ratings of students’ communication skills were not influenced by students’ gender, race/ethnicity, English language learner status, or special education status. We conclude with a discussion of implications for school-based research, assessment, and practice.

      Authors: David C. Parker, Lisa H. Stewart, Susan Thomson, Ruth A. Kaminski
      Abstract: Assessment for Effective Intervention, Ahead of Print.
      Vocabulary skills are important for overall reading competence, but vocabulary assessment approaches that inform instructional decision-making and are sensitive to improvement are limited. This article describes a process for developing vocabulary measures designed to facilitate data-driven decision-making for kindergarten and first-grade students who are at risk in vocabulary. A pilot study suggested the measures could be administered and scored with fidelity, and also produced promising data for indices of reliability, criterion-related validity, and sensitivity to growth, particularly for a rating-based scoring metric. Implications and considerations for developing instructionally relevant vocabulary measures are discussed.
