Forsberg Research Published

Ole J. Forsberg (Mathematics) and Benjamin G. Solomon (University of Albany) recently published research on estimating the improvement of the oral reading fluency (ORF) scores for elementary students. ORF scores are used to determine if the reading ability of students is improving at the expected rate. The novel advancement in this research is the use of Bayesian statistics to incorporate current understanding into the estimation procedure.

This research was published in the American Psychology journal School Psychology Quarterly as “Bayesian asymmetric regression as a means to estimate and evaluate oral reading fluency slopes.” 32(4): 539–551.
