Children's development is fostered by both high quality Early Childhood Education and Care (ECEC) settings and high quality home learning environments. As we know little about the interrelations between these two environments, we examine whether the child's attendance in a high quality ECEC arrangement relates to the quality of her home learning…

Riener, Gerhard; Wagner, Valentin – Education Economics, 2019
We analyze the impact of non-monetary incentives on performance in a mathematics test in secondary schools. While we apply predetermined incentives in two treatments, in a third treatment, pupils can choose one from four incentives -- a medal, homework voucher, parent letter or surprise. Overall, we find no impact of non-monetary incentives on…

Leiss, Dominik; Plath, Jennifer; Schwippert, Knut – Mathematical Thinking and Learning: An International Journal, 2019
Solving reality-based tasks is an important goal in mathematics instruction and is anchored in education standards determined by mathematical modeling skills. These tasks demand a serious examination of the real-world as well as text comprehension to successfully solve them. Therefore, this study empirically reconstructed the comprehension process…
