1. Rivera, Roana Kasandra. Assessing the Impact of Academic Placement on Academic Achievement Among 5th Graders with Disabilities: A Causal-Comparative Inquiry .

Degree: 2017, Texas A&M University – Corpus Christi

Since the mid ‘70s, school districts have been trying to place students with disabilities in the least restricted environment. As governments strive to create a more inclusive society, an inclusive academic setting for students with disabilities has become a priority. The purpose of the study was to examine the impact of academic setting on academic achievement in reading, science, and mathematics among 5th grade students with disabilities. The hypotheses were that 5th graders with disabilities receiving academic instruction in a segregated setting perform differently in reading, science, and mathematics than do those receiving instruction in an inclusive setting. The study utilized an ex post facto, casual-comparative research design. The independent variable was the educational placement with two levels. The segregated level was identified by only the students with disabilities. The comparison level consisted of students with disabilities in the general education setting. The outcome measures were academic achievement in reading, science, and mathematics. The characteristic-present group consisted of a non-probability sample of 20 5th grade students with an instructional arrangement code of 42; indicating 21% to less than 50% of the academic school day is spent in a special education setting, receiving direct instruction from a special education teacher. The comparison group consisted of 50 5th grade students with an instructional arrangement code of 40; indicating 0% of the academic school day is spent in a special education setting. Due to the non-experimental nature of the study, no causal inferences were drawn. Due to the non-probability nature of the sampling technique, external validity was limited to the study’s participants. After adjusting the data on the basis of gender, which was a confounding variables, it was concluded that academic achievement in reading and mathematics was not impacted by academic setting. Academic achievement in science was impacted by the intervention and favored the inclusive setting. All effect sizes were meaningful and favored the inclusive setting. A series of power analysis showed that the small sample of the subjects in the characteristic-present group could have contributed to the lack of statistical significance in the findings. It was also concluded that gender must be taken into consideration in designing instructional settings for children with disabilities. Students with disabilities, who are receiving special education services, are not only held accountable for the same academic standards within the academic setting, but are also held accountable for meeting state standards on the STAAR assessments. The results of the study may provide an understanding of what adjustments need to be made to be sure students with disabilities are receiving the best education possible.

2. Dyurich, Adriana E. Experiences of pregnant women using a mobile application as treatment companion .

Degree: 2017, Texas A&M University – Corpus Christi

The purpose of this descriptive phenomenological study was to explore the lived experiences of pregnant women using VeedaMom, a mobile app created to screen for and manage symptoms of perinatal depression. A total of six women at various points of their pregnancy development participated in individual interviews and a focus group. Data was also obtained from an in-app journal featured in the VeedaMom app. The purposeful sample was identified through a maternal-fetal clinic servicing the women of South Texas. Participants were required to complete the in-app Edinburgh Postnatal Depression Scale once a week, watch psycho-educational videos featured in the app, and practice mindfulness exercises offered through the app as audio recordings. This study utilized Giorgi's phenomenological methods to analyze the expectant mother's in-depth, conscious descriptions of their lived experiences using the app. The findings of this study provide a deeper understanding of pregnant women's experiences and emotions while using the VeedaMom app as treatment companion. Nine themes and two subthemes emerged from the analysis: welcoming a new life: my own; defining myself through comparisons; with two subthemes: me vs. others and my different pregnancies; need to address many emotions; mommy-focused care; the high value of insight and acceptance; apps are part of life; benefits of the in-app EPDS; teach me something new, now!; . . . and please remind me. The findings include a general psychological structure of the experience, and a diagram representing its connections. The participants’ descriptions referred to two important aspects of the phenomenon: the experience of motherhood, and the experience of using an app during pregnancy. Participants described pregnancy as a time of profound and significant change that might lead them to redefine their own identity. They perceived the app as helpful and valuable, especially when related to important outcomes expected: mother-centered care, and the promotion of insight and acceptance. Researchers must continue to investigate the effectiveness and adequacy of interventions through app technology in promoting mental health, especially for app-delivered interventions designed for the perinatal period, since the use of app technology is ubiquitous and increases during pregnancy.
