|Title:||WWC Review of the Report "Enhancing the Effectiveness of Special Education Programming for Children with Attention Deficit Hyperactivity Disorder Using a Daily Report Card"|
|Description:||Enhancing the Effectiveness of Special Education Programming for Children with Attention Deficit Hyperactivity Disorder Using a Daily Report Card, examined whether the use of daily report cards in elementary school improved behavior and academic achievement among students diagnosed with combined inattentive and hyperactive/impulsive attention deficit hyperactivity disorder (ADHD) and comorbid oppositional defiant disorder (ODD)/conduct disorder. Sixty-three students participated in the study, each with a unique teacher, and were randomly assigned either to the intervention condition or to the comparison condition. Researchers compared behavioral and academic outcomes for the intervention and comparison groups at the conclusion of the academic year. The study found statistically significant positive differences between the intervention and comparison group on three of the four measures in the external behavior domain. The study found no statistically significant or substantively important differences in two other domains, reading achievement/literacy, and math achievement. This study is a well-implemented randomized controlled trial that meets WWC evidence standards without reservations.|
