Here you will find Susan L'Allier's and Laurie Elish-Piper's paper from NRC last year. This is an interesting study to examine because it makes the link from coaching to student achievement. We will discuss this study as part of what we do on W morning. It will be good for the study group to be familiar with the details of this study before hearing L'Allier and Elish-Piper present this year on TH morning at 8:30 AM in Tangerine A.
In their 08 NRC presentation L'Allier and Elish-Piper will focus on additional analyses of the data from their study. In particular, they will be discussing the impact of coaching on different groups of students. They separated the students into intensive, strategic, and benchmark groups - according to their fall DIBELS scores - and examined the effects of various coaching activities for each group. They will also be presenting a research-based model of coaching using the results from our two coaching studies.
