Learner Objectives

  1. understand social validity and its underlying factors.
  2. learn about evidence-based instructional supports for English learners.
  3. increase their knowledge of how to flexibly use a social validity measure in consultation with teachers.
  4. learn about the results of a pilot study using a social validity measure with teachers to rate instructional supports for English learners.

Description

This poster will provide an overview of social validity and the associated Usage Rating Profile-Intervention (URP-I; Briesch et al., 2013), a tool developed for school settings. Findings from a pilot study using the URP-I for instructional supports for English learners (ELs) will be discussed. The poster will increase participants’ knowledge of social validity and provide an example of applying this flexible measurement tool for new populations and domains.
