Presentation Transcript

  1. SOLO Project

  2. Basics • Each research assistant will • Work with 2 or 4 students (2-4 hours per week) for approximately 9 weeks • Be paid for today’s 2 hours in the last paycheck • Turn in weekly time sheet and data documents

  3. This week … See Teresa Allmon in room 204 to be put on payroll Give me a copy of your background clearance or have Tina Brannon email me to say you are cleared to visit schools. If you do not have a current background clearance, you cannot work on this project

  4. Purpose of Project Conduct two research studies examining the effects of writing with assistive technology software (SOLO) on written expression for students with disabilities

  5. Other important things… All data collection must be completed before the end of the semester

  6. Steps… • Training (today) • Coordinate with teachers to set a schedule for data collection. (You may also ask the teacher if there is some small token you can give each student for working hard each session; e.g., sticker, a few Skittles). • Collect parent consent and student assent on each participant. You cannot begin data collection until we have a copy of those documents. • Begin data collection • Baseline – paper/pencil • Intervention - SOLO

  7. Data Collection Sessions Alternating Treatments • Pre-assessment • 2 baseline sessions • (3 paper/pencil) • 10 intervention sessions • One paper/pencil • One SOLO • Post-assessment ABAB (approximate) • Pre-assessment • 2 baseline sessions • (3 paper/pencil) • 5 intervention sessions • SOLO • 2 baseline sessions • (3 paper/pencil) • 3 intervention sessions • SOLO • Post-assessment

  8. ABAB Comparing difference between performance without intervention and with intervention

  9. Alternating Treatments Comparing two ongoing conditions

  10. Writing Prompts • Narrative • Fictional • Expository • Fact-based

  11. SOLO • Draft:Builder • Organization of writing • Co:Writer • Word prediction

  12. Let’s look at.. • Pre-assessment procedures • Baseline procedures • Scoring writing • Excel file • Intervention procedures • Software

  13. Data Sheet Words Word Sequences Rubric

  14. Scoring Correct Word Sequences A CWS was defined as (1) two adjacent, correctly spelled, capitalized, and punctuated words; (2) capitalized and correctly spelled beginning of sentences; or (3) correctly spelled and punctuated ending of sentences. All phrases must be acceptable in standard English usage. CWS are scored line by line. For example, in the sentence Sally run fast., four CWS are possible. One CWS would be counted for the first word of the sentence being capitalized and spelled correctly. Next, the sequences of Sally run and run fastwould not be counted as CWS because run is not the correct verb tense. Finally, the sequence fast. would be counted as a CWS because it is a properly punctuated end of a sentence.
