Research Projects

Literacy for Students with Disabilities is to address current and emerging training and information needs of SEAs, LEAs, technical assistance (TA) centers, schools, and practitioners to select and implement evidence-based practices that will improve literacy outcomes for students with disabilities or students who show indicators of disabilities that may prevent them from attaining full literacy

The purpose of this project is to develop and test the effectiveness of the NumberShire Integrated Tutor System (NS1-ITS) that will be utilized to optimally scale up implementation of an evidence-based education technology tool, NumberShire 1 (NS1), in first grade classrooms.

The purpose of this project is develop a preschool early language and literacy progress monitoring tool in Spanish, Progress Monitoring-Spanish-Individual Growth and Development Indicators (PM-S-IGDIs), to complement a progress monitoring tool in English (PM-IGDIs) that will be developed with funding from IES.

The purpose of this study is to test the efficacy of a first-grade mathematics intervention called Fusion aimed at developing understanding of whole numbers for students at risk for mathematics learning disabilities. According to results from the National Assessment of Educational Progress, only 42% of fourth graders performed at or above the proficient level in mathematics.

The purpose of this study is to determine the efficacy of the NumberShire Level 1 gaming intervention, aimed at improving mathematics achievement for first-grade students with or at risk for mathematics learning disabilities. Intervention to strategically accelerate math learning in early elementary school can help prevent costly remediation in later grades.

Precision Mathematics is a 4-year Full Design and Development (DRK-12) project funded by the National Science Foundation (NSF). The aim of the project is to develop and test 1st and 2nd grade mathematics interventions for students who are at risk for early mathematics difficulties.

For the K-3 Reading Initiative, The Center on Teaching and Learning (CTL), with assistance from RMC Research, will provide whole group, small group, and job-embedded PD to the US Virgin Islands that is grounded in the essential components of reading instruction.

Stepping up KinderTEK is a "Stepping Up" project funded as a cooperative agreement with the Office of Special Education and Rehabilitative Services (OSEP) at the Department of Education. Its purpose is to expand the current KinderTEK iPad math intervention to more effectively serve K-Gr3 students with disabilities.

The purpose of this project is to develop Literacy Study Group (LSG), a web-based professional development intervention designed to assist special education teachers in delivering high-quality reading instruction to elementary school students with emotional and behavioral disorders (EBD).

The i3 project is designed to test the impact of a two-year intervention on the mathematics achievement of at-risk students, and ensure a successful transition in mathematics across the pre-kindergarten to kindergarten school years.
