Research Projects Looking for Participants


SUICIDE PREVENTION AND POSTVENTION IN SCHOOLS


(Collecting Data: 3/1/2021-6/15/2021)

Dear colleague,   

   

My name is Veronica Milito and I am a doctoral candidate in the school psychology doctoral program at St. John’s University. I am writing to ask assistance from members of your organization to participate in my dissertation research study, which focuses on school psychologists’ knowledge of suicide prevention and postvention.   

   

The purpose of this study is to gain a greater understanding of school psychologists’ knowledge of best practices, ethics, and laws for suicide prevention and postvention in schools and the practices school psychologists would implement for a hypothetical case.  

   

Participation in this study will involve completing an online survey in which you would answer true or false questions as well as read two short vignettes and complete a brief questionnaire.   

   

Participants will also be asked to complete a demographic and professional background questionnaire. It is anticipated that participation will take approximately 25-30 minutes.  


I am looking to recruit practicing school psychologists who would be interested in taking part in this study. Upon completion, participants will be entered into a raffle for a chance to win one of ten $50 Amazon gift cards.   


I would greatly appreciate if you would take the time to forward the attached research invitation to your organization members. I would also be happy to contact them independently, if you are able to provide a list of email addresses. Your assistance with this study will be an asset to the improvement of the school psychologists’ knowledge of suicide best practices.   


There is no risk to participation in this study.  

   

Here is the link to the study:

If you would like to speak with me, please e-mail me at veronica.milito18@my.stjohns.edu.  

   

Thank you very much for your time and consideration!  


Sincerely,

SCHOOL PSYCHOLOGISTS' PRACTICES FOR SOCIAL SKILLS TRAINING WITH STUDENTS WITH AUTISM SPECTRUM DISORDER


(Collecting Data: 2/26/2021-5/14/2021)

We are looking for practicing school psychologists to complete an anonymous online survey: School Psychologists’ Assessment and Intervention Practices in the Delivery of Social Skills Training for Students with Autism Spectrum Disorder (ASD). We are interested in learning about the social skills training practices used by school psychologists when working with students with ASD in school settings during a typical school year. This information can be used to inform future research and training so that students with ASD are well-supported in school settings.

 

This study has been approved by our university’s Institutional Review Board.  At the end of the survey, participants will have the option to enter into a raffle for a chance to win a 10-dollar Amazon e-gift card. Up to 150 participants will receive one 10-dollar Amazon e-gift card for participating in the study.

SCHOOL PSYCHOLOGISTS' RESEARCH PRACTICES


(Collecting Data: 2/26/2021-2/14/2022)


Attention School Psychologists!

We are conducting an IRB-approved survey study to better understand the range of assessment techniques school psychologists utilize during psychological/psychoeducational evaluations.  This study will be completed online, and should you wish to participate, will be asked to respond to a variety of questions related to your use of specific assessment techniques. Additionally, we will recruit demographic information related to your years of practice, training, and professional certification and/or licensure. The study in full will take approximately 20 minutes to complete.  All data collected will be anonymous, and reported in group format. Your responses will not be individually identifiable and identifying information will not be collected.

If you have any questions about the study, please contact Dr. Laura Spenceley at laura.spenceley@oswego.edu, or Dr. Benjamin Lovett at bl2799@tc.columbia.edu.

AN INVESTIGATION OF FACTORS INFLUENCING THE VISUAL ANALYSIS OF        ACADEMIC TIME SERIES DATA 


(Collecting Data: 12/15/2020-5/15/2021)

Hello, you are invited to participate in a study evaluating factors that influence the visual analysis of academic progress monitoring data. We are seeking participants that have:

(1) administered and scored a curriculum-based measurement of reading passage at least once in their career.

(2) evaluated a curriculum-based measurement of reading progress monitoring graph (individually or in a group) to determine whether a student was showing sufficient progress or whether a change needed to be made.


If you have completed both these tasks at any point in your career (including to fulfill coursework requirements, practicum experiences, or internship) you qualify to participate.  The risks of participating in a study are no greater than the risks encountered in day to day life, or no greater the typical risks of using the internet. We hope that the results will help identify practices that improve the reliability and accuracy of visual analysis decisions. All responses are anonymous and personally identifiable information will not be collected. We anticipate that completing the survey will take less than 45 minutes. Your participation is completely voluntary.  If you wish to participate you will receive a $10 digital amazon gift card as compensation for your time. Upon completing the survey you will be forwarded to provide your email in a google form. Your email will be used to send the gift card and will not be linkable to your responses for the study.  The study may be accessed at the following link:

https://lehigh.co1.qualtrics.com/jfe/form/SV_cIy90uI6qYXGPMp

and accessed with the password VISUALANALYSIS1122


The password MUST be typed in.  Copy and pasting the password will not always work.


Please note that the study is optimized for completion on laptop/desktop computers. Errorsmay occur if completing the study on a smart phone or tablet.  This study was approved by the Institutional Review Board at Lehigh University (IRB 1566089-1). If you have any questions or concerns you can contact the Principal Investigator, Ethan Van Norman, at erv418@lehigh.edu. If you have questions about your rights or would simply like to speak with someone other than the research team about the questions or concerns, please contact the IRB at (610) 758-2871 or inirb@lehigh.edu. All reports or correspondence will be kept confidential." Anyone who participates in the survey can receive a $10 gift card.
