A comparison of positive practice and functional communication training in the treatment of challenging behavior.
The purpose of this thesis was to compare positive practice and a function-based intervention in reducing challenging behaviors. The present thesis included a systematic review of the literature and a single-case research ...
An examination of parameter recovery in latent transition models with distal outcomes.
Latent transition analysis (LTA) is an increasingly popular research method used to categorize subsets of individuals within a population. The current study is purposed to investigate parameter recovery of a distal outcome ...
Integrated, project-based learning and knowledge retention : a mixed methods study comparing high school students in two geometry courses.
The developing synergy of legislation and research throughout recent history points to the current momentum behind college and career readiness for every student. Researchers have found that embedding academic content into ...
Detecting sigmoidal trajectories in structured latent curve models : a fit measure performance and parameter recovery simulation study.
This simulation study examined parameter estimate recovery and model selection of structured latent curve models under varying conditions to provide recommendations on how to properly format longitudinal research when there ...
Using high-p intervention to reduce difficulties in task transition for children with autism.
Difficulties with task transition is a problem that cannot be neglected as it interferes with instruction times. This study extended the use of high probability request sequence (high-p) intervention to reduce challenging ...
Literature circles and the reader self-efficacy of reluctant and/or struggling readers.
In an era of high-stakes accountability measures in education, the researcher designed this study to explore a more student-centered approach to English language arts and reading instruction via literature circles. The ...
