How do included and excluded students with SEBD function socially and academically after 1,5 year of special education services?

Special education services in exclusive settings may afford certain benefits to some students with social/emotional/behavioural difficulties (SEBD), not typically found in regular education, which can be considered a first indication that there may be valid counterarguments against the ‘inclusion for all’ perspective on educational needs.

Making eye movements during imaginal exposure leads to short-lived memory effects compared to imaginal exposure alone

At intervention start, making EM during imaginal exposure prevents memory inflation. Imaginal exposure with or without EM causes immediate and 24 h memory deflation. Imaginal exposure + EM leads to short-lived effects compared to imaginal exposure. Change patterns were hardly explained by predictive variables.

Testing Small Variance Priors Using Prior-Posterior Predictive P-values

Muthen and Asparouhov (2012) propose to evaluate model fit in structural equation models based on approximate (using small variance priors) instead of exact equality of (combinations of) parameters to zero. This is an important development that adequately addresses Cohen’s (1994) “The earth is round (p < .05)”, which stresses that point null-hypotheses are so precise that small and irrelevant differences from the null-hypothesis may lead to their rejection.
