Lamb, Richard; Firestone, Jonah; Schmitter-Edgecombe, Maureen; Hand, Brian – Journal of Educational Research, 2019
Critical thinking when engaged in science problem solving around even simple tasks such as the Piagetian volume conservation task is a complex endeavor. Tasks such as the conservation task often require the interaction of multiple cognitive systems. Parity judgment, retrieval, and lateral thinking are three examples of such systems interacting…

Weatherholt, Tara; Jordan, Rachel; Crouch, Luis; Barnett, Ed; Pressley, Jennifer – International Journal of Early Childhood, 2019
Consistent over-enrollment, together with low official repetition rates, in the early years of school indicates inaccurate reporting of repetition, which may mask the reasons for low primary school completion. Actual repetition rates may be higher and pose issues for teachers through overcrowding of classrooms and issues for governments through…
