1. Smith, Leedy K. INTERIM ASSESSMENT SYSTEMS AND COGNITIVE MEASURES OF DEEPER LEARNING: AN EVALUATION OF THE USA TESTPREP® PROGRAM.

Degree: EdD, 2018, University of Oklahoma

Recent federal and state policy has placed increasing focus on college and career readiness. As a result, many states and local districts respond by implementing interim assessment systems to help them facilitate instruction and monitor progress towards college and career readiness. Yet, there is little evidence to support the efficacy of these programs in influencing student outcomes (Perie, et al., 2009). Thus, the purpose of this study is to consider to what extent one interim assessment program, USA TestPrep®, as implemented in a suburban Oklahoma middle school met the goals of college and career readiness as examined through a lens of deeper learning. Through a mixed methods approach, the researcher concluded that while the interim assessments, as created by teachers in the district, were predictive of the standardized assessments, they did not align with the measures of deeper learning. As a tool for data driven decision making, teachers’ primary perception of the program was one of predictive purpose and to a lesser extent the instructional purposes to inform teaching and learning.

2. Fiegener, Ashlyn M. Building a line of inquiry around instructional program coherence: The role of coherence in teacher well-being, turnover intentions, and mental models.

Degree: PhD, 2020, University of Oklahoma

Previous studies suggest that instructional program coherence is related to higher student achievement and school improvement. There is little known about the process by which coherence operates in schools, specifically how it may create conditions in the instructional environment that enable teachers to thrive. The purpose of this three-study dissertation is to examine the relationship between instructional program coherence and measures of teacher well-being – namely, psychological need satisfaction and turnover. The first study tests the relationship between instructional program coherence and teacher psychological need satisfaction. The second study 1) examines the relationship between instructional program coherence and teacher intent to leave; and 2) tests teacher psychological need satisfaction as a mediating variable in the relationship between instructional program coherence and teacher intent to leave. Thus far, instructional program coherence has been conceptualized and measured as the alignment of structures (i.e., curriculum, assessments, professional development) within the instructional environment. A sole focus on structural coherence, however, neglects the role of human cognition in influencing teacher action and behavior. Mental models are the cognitive frameworks that guide action. The third study expands the work of coherence by conceptualizing a cognitive dimension of instructional coherence. Cognitive instructional coherence is defined as the sharedness of teacher mental models of a common instructional framework. A set of items are advanced to capture cognitive instructional coherence, and construct validity is tested through the assessment of content validity, structural validity, and convergent validity.

3. Ware, Jordan K. Measuring the Effects of Poverty: Property Value as a Proxy of Socioeconomic Status.

Degree: PhD, 2014, University of Oklahoma

This study explored property value as a proxy of socioeconomic status. The effects of poverty on general health, academic achievement, and child development are devastating. The endurance and growth of poverty can be disheartening. Improvement efforts must be targeted and evidence-based. Dependable evidence requires sound measurement. Traditional measures of socioeconomic status like eligibility for a free or reduced price lunch (FRL), parent income, parent education, and parent occupation leave room for improvement. Hierarchical linear modeling and regression analyses were conducted to compare the effects of FRL eligibility and property value on Math achievement. Geographic Information Systems was utilized to map the effects of property value on student achievement at the school level across a geographical area. The inclusion of visual evidence aids in identifying trends and, eventually, targeting improvement efforts. Advisors/Committee Members: Forsyth, Patrick B. (advisor), Adams, Curt M. (advisor), Edwards, Beverly (committee member), Mackey, Hollie J. (committee member), Schaefer, Shawn (committee member).
