Weidinger, Anne F.; Steinmayr, Ricarda; Spinath, Birgit – Developmental Psychology, 2019
In line with the reciprocal internal/external frame of reference model (RI/E model), it is well-established that secondary school students generate domain-specific ability self-concepts by comparing their own performance in a domain socially (i.e., with others' performance in this domain) and dimensionally (i.e., with their own performance in…

Background: A large amount of evidence highlights the obvious inequalities in literacy results of South African learners. Despite this, a sound understanding of how learners approach the task of reading in the African languages is lacking. Aim: This article examines the role of the syllable, phoneme and morpheme in reading in transparent,…

Wilsenach, Carien – South African Journal of Childhood Education, 2019
Background: The role of phonological awareness (PA) in successful reading attainment in Northern Sotho has received some attention. However, the importance of developing an awareness to the different phonological grain sizes that underlie decoding (i.e. to different dimensions of PA) has not been established in this language. Aim: This study…

Troyer, Margaret; Kim, James S.; Hale, Elizabeth; Wantchekon, Kristia A.; Armstrong, Catherine – Reading and Writing: An Interdisciplinary Journal, 2019
Children's motivation to read is a strong predictor of their reading comprehension. However, some recent research has suggested that the relationship between reading motivation and reading comprehension may be mediated through the amount that students read. This study attempts a conceptual replication of several existing models that explore the…

Jutengren, Göran; Medin, Eva – Journal of Educational Research, 2019
The authors, with Swedish elementary school students (N = 201), 9-12 years old, examined the potential significance to self-perceived academic competence of students' cross-ethnic friendship ties and prosocial behavior to better understand education's minority achievement gap. A crossed-lagged panel model was tested to investigate potential…

Commissaire, Eva; Besse, Anne-Sophie – Journal of Research in Reading, 2019
Background: Whether lexical and sub-lexical orthographic skills relate to each other and to reading was investigated in French 3rd and 5th graders. Methods: Two homophone choice tasks were constructed (1) by manipulating the frequency of words sub-lexical features (choose the correct spelling in "boat" - "bacht" vs…

Brokamp, Saskia K.; Houtveen, Antonia A. M.; van de Grift, Willem J. C. M. – Journal of Educational Research, 2019
The relationship among students' reading performance, their behavior (task-focused behavior, emotional stability, and compliant behavior) in the classroom, and the teacher's skills was investigated in 66 third-grade classrooms. Results from this study showed the students' reading performance and their behavior in the classroom are all…

Paige, David D.; Smith, Grant S.; Rasinski, Timothy Victor; Rupley, William H.; Magpuri-Lavell, Theresa; Nichols, William D. – Journal of Educational Research, 2019
Considerable evidence supports that close to two thirds of all fourth-grade students read at less than adequate levels on reading achievement tests and that the problem has persisted for decades. This study of 1,064 third-grade students at risk for reading failure uses path analytic techniques to measure a hypothesized model linking developmental…

Fried, Daniel B.; Tinio, Pablo P. L.; Gubi, Aaron; Gaffney, Jean P. – European Journal of Science and Mathematics Education, 2019
The scientists of the future will need to begin studying science to great depth, much earlier in life, in order to keep up with the accelerating pace of discovery and technological innovation. For this to be possible, engaging and child-friendly pedagogical approaches need to be developed that leverage the natural enthusiasm of young science…
