Transcript of Research Proposal

The Study of General Outcome Measures
in Mathematics for
Students Who Are Deaf or Hard of Hearing Presented by Judi Emerson
The University of Southern Mississippi
April 2010 IDEA / No Child Left Behind Act (NCLB, 2002) mandates accountability in content areas
Programs serving students who are deaf and hard of hearing need assessments that can inform and guide instruction.
Instruments must be technically reliable, and valid, as well as, efficient and practical. Theoretical Framework Purpose The field of Special Education needs more Quantitative research investigations, especially for low incidence populations such the disability category of hearing impairment. Research Questions Are the math GOMs created by the Research Institute on Progress Monitoring (RIPM) for students with SCD (1) reliable, (2) valid, and (3) sensitive to growth over time when used with students who are deaf and hard of hearing? Methods 3 RIPM GOMs adapted
3 time frames
Teaching staff trained Criterion Measures EMDA
RIPM Math Checklist Data Analyses Pearson Correlations
Repeated Measures Outcomes Results will indicate short and efficient general outcome measures (GOMs) work for students who are deaf and hard of hearing in the mathematical content areas
GOMs will demonstrate moderate to strong concurrent and predictive validity with the EMDA and Math Checklist Significance The potential to add to the literature of quantitative research in the area of special education for the population of students with hearing impairments.
