              Job Posted on April 13, 2022

              Part-Time Coach (Temporary University Specialist)
              Department of Educational Psychology

              The Department of Educational Psychology within UConn’s Neag School of Education invites applications for a Temporary University Specialist position. The coach will provide job-embedded professional development to interventionists and members of elementary school data teams to support them with implementation of data-based individualization. Coaches will support implementation of the data-based individualization (DBI) initiative. They will work directly with the project team and elementary school sites participating in the project. The coach will provide support to the school-based DBI teams and interventionists throughout the course of the project. They will participate in and support with facilitation of the overview training. When the DBI implementation phase begins, a coaching cycle will be initiated. This will consist of a series of meetings. At the initial meeting, the coach will review the DBI process with the school team and work with the school on selection of students. At the next meeting, student progress monitoring data will be discussed along with adaptations to the intervention. The coach will provide modeling throughout the first and second meeting. Then, a gradual release of responsibility will occur because the third meeting is a shared responsibility between the coach and school leadership team members. All subsequent meetings are led by the school team with support from the coach as needed. The third meeting consists of reviewing the adaptations made to the student intervention and discussing implementation fidelity. After this meeting, the coach begins completing site visits to monitor implementation fidelity. At the fourth meeting, the school team discusses if additional students may benefit from DBI. The school team leads this meeting with support from the coach. At the fifth meeting, the cycle begins for a new student, and the school team will lead this meeting along with all other meetings in this cycle.

              Data-based individualization (DBI) is a specific way of implementing intensive intervention using a five-step process that involves intervention, progress monitoring, and adaptation. In step 1, a research-based secondary prevention program is used. The program should be (a) validated by rigorous experimental studies; (b) implemented with groups of students who have not responded to secondary prevention; and (c) one used for secondary prevention but–in DBI–at the student’s instructional level. Initially, interventionists provide small group or individual instruction with only those adjustments agreed upon in collaboration with the school team. In step 2, progress monitoring is used to track student response to the intervention. Progress monitoring assessments should be (a) general outcome measures (usually) with reliability and validity for target skills; (b) done weekly or more frequently; and (c) used for secondary prevention but–in DBI–is at the student’s instructional level. Progress should be evaluated relative to an aimline based on a pre-defined goal and adequate based on tracking the aimline. In step three, diagnostic assessment data are examined. These data include standardized assessments, teacher-made tests, and observations. Discussion focuses on how the data might reveal issues in the dimensions of the taxonomy. Step 4 involves the creation of a student-specific intensive intervention plan. During the meeting, the school-based team agrees on a plan that is based on the examination of the diagnostic assessment data, focuses on one or more areas of the taxonomy, and includes the ideas most likely to increase achievement. In step 5, the plan developed is implemented, student response to the intervention is tracked, and the school team cycles back to step 3 as needed. The interventionist implements the plan and tracks the student’s progress closely, meeting with the school team every 4-6 weeks to evaluate the student’s performance data relative to the student’s aimline. If progress is adequate, then intervention is continued as is and if the progress is inadequate, the team returns to step 3.
