  • I Can Do It Well Because I Did It Well: the Effect of Promoted
           Self-efficacy Through Induced Success Performance in Junior High School
           Students

    • Free pre-print version: Loading...

      Abstract: Abstract Kudo and Mori, Psychological Reports, 117, 631-642, (2015) used a presentation trick to covertly present a set of easier anagram tasks to 20 junior high school students while their 60 classmates observed more difficult tasks. These two samples were selected randomly, and their IQ scores counterbalanced. The target students outperformed their classmates, and showed greater self-efficacy after their success. However, they did not examine the relationship between this self-efficacy and performance 2 months later on another set of anagram tasks. Here, we analyzed their data in this regard. We found that those students whose self-efficacy was raised by the former task performed better than the control students whose self-efficacy ratings were in the middle range. These findings suggest that students with high self-efficacy performed better than their classmates did on new anagram tasks, even when adjusting for IQ.

  • Building Resilience and Fortitude Among Victims of School Bullying:
           Lessons from a Customized Yoga Education Program by Older Adult Volunteers
           

    • Free pre-print version: Loading...

      Abstract: Abstract This article reports a study on the effectiveness of yoga to build resilience and fortitude among victims of school bullying. A cohort of children who underwent an older adult volunteer taught yoga education programme (OAVYEP) were compared with a cohort who underwent a young volunteer taught yoga education programme (YVYEP). The OAVYEP and YVYEP had a common repertoire of face-to-face yoga lessons. The OAVYEP had additional components of home practice or do-it-yourself exercises and additional session time comprising experience and anecdotal sharing by older adults. Results indicated that participants who underwent the OAVYEP reported greater resilience and fortitude post-test. Outcome scores were higher for intervention group girls, middle class, with mother as primary caregiver, and living in standard family arrangements. Attendance at OAVYEP lessons and home practice mediated the relationship between demographic predictors and outcomes. The OAVYEP is an effective intervention to address concerns of bullying victims in US schools.

  • Effects of an Abbreviated Class-Wide Reading Intervention for Students in
           Third Grade

    • Free pre-print version: Loading...

      Abstract: Abstract Multi-tiered systems of support (MTSS) provide instruction and intervention to all students in schools. However, when many students within a setting demonstrate reading difficulties, there is likely a tier 1 problem which makes it infeasible to implement tier 2 or tier 3 interventions with large numbers of students due to limited resources. The current study experimentally examined the effects of a brief class-wide intervention with two third-grade classrooms with large numbers of students demonstrating reading difficulties. The treatment group participated in partner reading with paragraph shrinking (i.e., summarizing) every school day for 2 weeks. The intervention resulted in significantly greater fluency growth compared to the control classroom. Moreover, the number of students in the treatment group who scored below the seasonal benchmark criterion fell from 12 out of 21 to 6 of 21 students. The control classroom had 13 out of 24 students who scored below the benchmark before and after the intervention. Results pointed to a promising practice for schools to enact when class-wide reading difficulties are evident.

  • Families and Schools Together: Designing a Model for University-Community
           Partnerships to Support Home-School Collaborations

    • Free pre-print version: Loading...

      Abstract: Abstract Collaboration between school staff, families, and community partners is vital for ensuring all students’ success, particularly those with disabilities. In this case study, we will discuss a community-university partnership involving a university school psychology graduate program, several local school districts, and a specialized medical facility for children with autism and related neurodevelopmental disorders. These partners came together to create the Families and Schools Partnership Program (FSPP). Facilitated by School Psychology faculty and graduate students, FSPP offers support to families and schools through a cohesive multidisciplinary approach to intervention. In this study, we examined the experiences of 700 families referred to the FSPP consultation team and evaluated the reasons for referral, levels of intervention required by each family, and case outcomes. As a result, we offer a series of steps and tips for developing collaborative interagency relationships, an outline of the consultation framework and processes developed, and lessons learned throughout implementation.

  • Response Validity in Psychoeducational Assessment: a Primer for School
           Psychologists

    • Free pre-print version: Loading...

      Abstract: Abstract School psychologists often have reason to suspect that students may not be putting forth full effort during diagnostic tests, or that questionnaire or rating scale data are not credible. However, such suspicions must be tested carefully to yield data-based conclusions. Structured, empirically supported methods for assessing the “response validity” of evaluation data are available, to help gauge effort, motivation, and honesty in clients and informants. The present paper reviews a number of methods, places them in the context of research showing the effects of motivation and incentives on performance, and addresses concerns about including these methods in school-based psychoeducational evaluations. The paper concludes with practical, research-based recommendations for school psychologists when conducting evaluations and writing reports.

  • School Bullying, Perpetration, and Cyberhate: Overlapping Issues

    • Free pre-print version: Loading...

      Abstract: Abstract In an international context of increasing racism, xenophobia, anti-Semitism, and Islamophobia in Europe and the USA (FRA, 2013; Hawdon et al. 2015), social media provide a privileged tool for propaganda and victimization. Issues of racism and xenophobia have become more prevalent both in “real life” and on the Internet. This study presents the results of a self-reported questionnaire survey on cyberhate among 1900 French students, age 12–20, where we investigated the association between school bullying and cyberhate victimization and perpetration. Findings show that bullying and cyberhate are a common experience for quite a few young people. Structural equation models provide evidence of the association between ordinary offline victimization and involvement in cyberhate. Our findings for cyberhate provide further evidence suggesting an overlap between traditional bullying and cyberbullying. They confirm the need for further research to acquire a better understanding of the processes that underscore individual involvement in online hate in order to inform effective interventions.

  • Perceived Stress and Nonverbal Intellectual Abilities Are Differentially
           Related to Academic Success in Latinx and European American Rural
           Elementary Students

    • Free pre-print version: Loading...

      Abstract: Abstract This study examines the relationship between perceived stress, nonverbal cognitive functioning, and statewide academic scores in both Latinx and European American elementary students in rural school districts. A total of 44 third graders participated in the study, including 13 Latinx students and 31 European American (EA) students. Perceived stress was self-reported by the Perceived Stress Scale for Children (PSS-C). A nonverbal measure of cognitive ability (The Wechsler Nonverbal Scale of Intelligence) was administered individually to each student, and statewide academic testing results were obtained for all participants. Latinx and EA children self-reported comparable rates of perceived stress. Both groups obtained similar nonverbal cognitive composite scores, but with distinct subtest differences. Both groups scored similarly on statewide standardized testing for math, although the EA group scored higher than the Latinx group on English. Binomial tests of differences between correlations revealed that relationships among perceived stress, nonverbal intelligence, and academic achievement differed significantly for the Latinx and EA students. Academic achievement for Latinx students is correlated with lower perceived stress and higher nonverbal cognitive ability, including overall ability and the matrices, coding, and spatial span subtests. For European American children, academic success is correlated with higher nonverbal scores on the matrices and picture arrangement subtests but is not related to perceived stress. Thus, ethnicity may differentially impact the relationship between perceived stress, nonverbal IQ, and academic achievement in rural elementary students, based in part on culturally relevant contextual factors.

  • Case Conceptualization as an Alternative to Educationally Related Mental
           Health Assessments

    • Free pre-print version: Loading...

      Abstract: Abstract School psychologists play an essential role in the provision of school-based mental health services yet continue to spend the majority of their time conducting psychoeducational assessments. In California, changes in law regarding the provision of mental health services have increased the tension around the role of school psychologists and led to models for determining the need for mental health services that are inefficient and present a potential barrier to students receiving services in a timely manner. The paper proposes case conceptualization as a more useful and efficient approach, than traditional assessment processes for determining students’ mental needs and writing goals.

  • Adding Mindfulness to an Evidence-Based Reading Intervention for a Student
           with SLD: a Pilot Study

    • Free pre-print version: Loading...

      Abstract: Abstract Students with specific learning disability (SLD) are at a greater risk for reading difficulties, academic stress, and deficits in self-efficacy. There are several research-supported interventions used in schools that are effective in increasing reading skills (e.g., reading fluency) but do not explicitly address academic stress or deficient self-efficacy. A possible solution may be the addition of mindfulness techniques, as they have been shown to support a wide range of related student outcomes. Incorporating mindfulness through an app-based delivery approach may be beneficial in this scenario as they are low cost, easily accessible, and a simple tool to help meet the unique social-emotional and academic needs of students with SLD. The current study examined the extent to which adding a brief, app-based mindfulness intervention to an already established evidence-based reading fluency intervention (paired reading) would improve reading fluency, academic stress, and self-efficacy for a student with an SLD in reading.

  • The Use of the MIND Screener, a Computerized Assessment of Mental Health
           Treatment Needs, in a Public School District

    • Free pre-print version: Loading...

      Abstract: Abstract Although many discuss the importance of early screening, few children and adolescents with mental health treatment needs are identified. The Mental Illness Needs Detection (MIND) Screener, a computer-based self-report measure of mental health treatment needs was developed to identify and assess for these needs efficiently in schools and other community-based settings. In this study, 394 students in a North Florida school district completed screening measures. Principals and local mental health treatment providers completed surveys regarding current identification processes for children in this community. The internal consistency of the MIND was supported with reliability analyses (α = .88) and the good-fit of a one-factor confirmatory factor analysis (CFI = .91, TLI = .90). The MIND scales moderately to highly correlated with another commonly used measure, supporting its validity (r values of .51 to .80). The MIND demonstrated precision through its sensitivity (83%), specificity (63%), and AUC values (.70). Utility of the MIND was also supported with school leadership reporting more satisfaction with the MIND than other previous methods in place. Overall, findings indicate promise for using the MIND in schools to screen children early for mental health treatment needs. It addressed many of the shortcomings of other measures and methods of screenings by assessing for a variety of symptoms, being immediately computer scored, and utilizing self-report.

  • Partnering for Success: Leveraging Legislation for Transitioning Students
           with Intellectual Disabilities

    • Free pre-print version: Loading...

      Abstract: Abstract Students with intellectual and developmental disabilities (IDD) are incredibly vulnerable to poor post-school outcomes. Two mandates, the Higher Education Opportunity Act and Workforce Innovation and Opportunity Act, have emerged that may provide avenues to counter the discrepancy between the desire for career and college paths and actualization of employment and enrollment. The authors explore these legislative acts, their impact on transition services for students with IDD, and how school personnel can collaborate to create family, school, and community partnerships. Based on these acts, a practice framework, and the unique transition needs of students with IDD, practice recommendations are provided. Specific strategies for promoting application of these laws in the school setting are offered. Special attention is given to the partnership between special educators and school psychologists to help them navigate the legal implications for students with IDD and their families.

  • Social Media Monitoring of Students for Harm and Threat Prevention:
           Ethical Considerations for School Psychologists

    • Free pre-print version: Loading...

      Abstract: Abstract The rise of social media use among school youth has compelled school districts to implement social media monitoring to prevent active shootings, bullying, harassment, victimization, and suicide in the community. This presents an ethical and legal dilemma, with issues surrounding students’ rights to safety, privacy, and free speech in cyberspace. This paper followed the ethical decision-making model outlined by Armistead et al. (2011) to provide guidance to school psychologists and district personnel who may be deciding whether to implement social media monitoring. Review of National Association of School Psychologists and American Psychological Association ethical codes, legislation, and case law demonstrated many complexities regarding the rights of students and school district personnel. Evidence on the effectiveness of social media monitoring is still limited, so school districts and school psychologists are recommended to explore alternatives for harm and threat prevention that value the rights of students while also meeting their obligation to prevent abusive or hostile learning environments.

  • Special Education Evaluation Practices and Procedures: Implications for
           Referral and Eligibility Decision-making

    • Free pre-print version: Loading...

      Abstract: Abstract Special education service provision depends upon referral for evaluation, corresponding evaluation procedures, and resulting eligibility decisions. However, how school districts and decision-makers (e.g., school psychologists) apply special education evaluation procedural rules is largely unknown. Through a survey of practicing school psychologists, the current study examined the most common special education referral concerns, multidisciplinary team (MDT) members’ roles in eligibility decision-making, the value of various assessment data sources in determining special education eligibility, and differences in those variables across participants’ years of experience, degree level, and geographic region. Participants reported that reading was the most common special education referral, school psychologists primarily made special education eligibility decisions with some input from other MDT members, and test scores were the most valued source of assessment data in determining special education eligibility. There were no reported differences in these variables across degree or US geographic region, but there were differences in reported perceptions of the most important sources of assessment data across years of experience. Implications for practice and future research are discussed.

  • Understanding the Mediating Role of Moral Disengagement in the Association
           between Violent Video Game Playing and Bullying/Cyberbullying Perpetration
           

    • Free pre-print version: Loading...

      Abstract: Abstract The present study examined the direct and indirect effects (via moral disengagement) of violent video game playing on bullying/cyberbullying perpetration in early adolescents. The study included 479 middle school students aged 11–14 years (M = 13.06, SD = .76). Of the participants, 216 (45.1%) were girls and 263 (54.9%) were boys. The measures included violent video game playing, moral disengagement, bullying, and cyberbullying perpetration scales. The significance of indirect effects was estimated using 5000 bootstrap samples and 95% bias-corrected confidence intervals. The findings showed that violent video game playing was directly and positively associated with early adolescents’ bullying perpetration. Also, violent video game playing was indirectly associated with early adolescents’ bullying and cyberbullying perpetration through moral disengagement. Finally, moral disengagement both predicted bullying and cyberbullying perpetration. Findings provided evidence for the role of violent video game playing and moral disengagement for early adolescents’ bullying and cyberbullying perpetration. Limitations and implications of the findings are discussed and future directions are provided.

  • Stories Children Tell: Should the Thematic Apperception Test be Included
           in Psychoeducational Assessments'

    • Free pre-print version: Loading...

      Abstract: Abstract Federal law requires that psychoeducational evaluations be comprehensive, and utilize variety of assessment measures that evaluate the child’s functioning along academic and cognitive domains as well as life skills outside of the classroom (Wiley, 2014) . Previous research suggests the Thematic Apperception Test (TAT; Harvard University Press, 1943), a measure requiring responses to ambiguous stimuli, is an important part of comprehensive psychological evaluations (Adolescence, 43(171): 593-606, 2008). However, when integrated into psychoeducational assessment batteries, the TAT poses challenges associated with validity, reliability, and theoretical conceptualization (Miller and Nickerson 2006). In light of this criticism, this study examines the role that the TAT may play in psychoeducational assessment of children. Specifically, the study explores the relationship between TAT narratives, based on Teglasi’s coding system (Wiley, 2010), and data from intelligence testing, self- and informant-rating scales of behavior. Utilizing an exploratory mixed-method design, the study concluded that the TAT and standardized intelligence and personality tests measure different aspects of cognitive and emotional domains. Clinicians are encouraged to include the TAT in comprehensive psychoeducational assessments in order to evaluate contextual cognitive processes and implicit emotional functioning that are not measured by standardized tests.

  • Training to Work with Interpreters in US School Psychology Graduate
           Programs

    • Free pre-print version: Loading...

      Abstract: Abstract   Despite rapidly increasing cultural and linguistic diversity in US schools, the majority of psychoeducational evaluations will be conducted by monolingual, English-speaking school psychologists. As such, the appropriate use of interpreters has been identified as a critical skill in working with emergent bilinguals and their families. Surveys of practicing school psychologists conducting assessments with emergent bilinguals indicate a lack of knowledge and training in the use of interpreters; however, few studies have examined the extent to which school psychology graduate students are trained in the appropriate use of interpreters. Utilizing survey methodology, this study examined school psychology graduate students’ training in and preparedness to work with interpreters, as well as their knowledge of best practices in the use of interpreters. Current graduate students and interns enrolled in school psychology master’s, specialist, and doctoral programs in 36 states throughout the USA (n = 364) responded to the survey. The majority of participants were White (61.5%), monolingual (70.3%), and seeking a master’s or specialist degree (71.2%). Survey responses suggest that graduate students and interns’ training, knowledge, and preparedness to work with interpreters is lacking. A qualitative analysis of the open-ended question revealed that first-hand experience working with interpreters was among the most beneficial types of training experiences for graduate students and interns. Implications for how program directors and graduate-level faculty can provide better training for their students in the use of interpreters are discussed.

  • Social Forces, Social Justice, and School Attendance Problems in Youth

    • Free pre-print version: Loading...

      Abstract: Abstract School attendance and completion are significant indicators of health and positive psychosocial development in children and adolescents. School attendance and completion rates remain particularly stifled, however, for students of color, students in poverty, and students with disabilities, among other vulnerable groups. Researchers and educational agencies often focus on student and family mechanisms of school attendance problems with less attention to dominant systems that truly propel school absenteeism. To keep these themes “front and center” for stakeholders, this article summarizes key social forces and social justice issues that impact school attendance problems for marginalized students who are often excluded from many aspects of the educational process. These issues include education deprivation, migration and discrimination, school funding, school discipline, residential mobility and housing insecurity, adverse childhood experiences, school climate, school victimization, access to care, and other barriers to school attendance. Recommendations for research, policy, and intervention are presented as well. These recommendations partly include greater incorporation of various ecological levels, interaction effects, policies to promote school engagement, broader school accountability measures, proactive early warning systems, and culturally responsive multi-tiered system of support interventions.

  • Development of the Flourishing Classroom System Observation Framework and
           Rubric: a Delphi Study

    • Free pre-print version: Loading...

      Abstract: Abstract This paper describes the development of the Flourishing Classroom System Observation Framework and Rubric, which provides a framework and practical approach to defining and describing multiple interconnected observable characteristics of a classroom system that individually and together can be targeted to cultivate collective flourishing within schools. Beginning with a working theoretical model based on existing literature, a three-round Delphi study was used to develop the framework and related rubric. In round 1, 35 experts answered open-ended questions regarding observable behaviours of collective wellbeing in the classroom. Analysis of responses resulted in a framework with five dimensions, each with three sub-dimensions. In round 2, 23 experts sorted and categorised statements that potentially described each of the 15 sub-dimensions. Analyses created definitions of each sub-dimension and statements describing how they manifest for teachers, students, and the class, along with a description of the learning environment for each dimension. In round 3, 18 experts reviewed the definitions and descriptions, resulting in a final 15-dimension framework with a related rubric of 45 descriptive statements. The resulting framework and rubric provide an organising structure to identify observable system elements that shape a flourishing classroom culture.

  • Long-term English Learners: Untangling Language Acquisition and Learning
           Disabilities

    • Free pre-print version: Loading...

      Abstract: Abstract Students who have remained classified as English Learners (ELs) for more than six years are often labeled “Long-term English Learners” (LTELs). The present study examined the English Language Development (ELD) test scores and demographic information in a group of 560 students identified as LTELs. Despite assumptions that these students are still learning English, results showed many students who are labeled LTELs exhibited advanced English skills, especially on measures of expressive and receptive oral language (i.e., speaking and listening subtests). At the same time, ELD assessments showed many of these students struggled with literacy skills, especially reading. Perhaps due to these overlapping circumstances, we found many LTELs were also identified with learning disabilities. Based on these findings, we explored the impact of restricting domains needed for reclassification as English proficient on reclassification rates. Compared with existing decision rules in the students’ state, proposed models allow many more LTELs to reclassify as English proficient, and most LTELs not reclassifying are students in special education. Discussion focuses on interpreting ELD scores for students who have remained classified as ELs for more than a few years.

  • The Evidence-Based Practice (EBP) Instrument (School Version): Development
           and Initial Psychometrics of a New Interdisciplinary Scale

    • Free pre-print version: Loading...

      Abstract: Abstract This article presents the psychometric properties of the evidence-based practice (EBP) instrument (School Version), a new interdisciplinary measure for understanding and measuring EBP use that can be understood and used across the three professions who provide the most mental health services in schools. The instrument was developed based on theory, review of the literature, expert review (N = 12), pilot study (N = 20), and national study (N = 303). While the measure may have applicability for other groups of mental health providers in other settings, this study focused on the perspectives of mental health providers in schools, specifically school psychologists, school counselors, and social workers. Initial psychometric examination resulted in a 13-item, one factor model and indicated preliminary evidence for strong validity and internal reliability. No significant difference in total score among groups of mental health professionals was found, suggesting similarities of comprehension and application of EBP regardless of professional discipline. This instrument is the only one of its kind and provides a helpful first step towards common language and common goals when conceptualizing what it means for mental health providers to use best practice. Implications for school professionals and future research are offered.
