Xu, Lihua – Scandinavian Journal of Educational Research, 2019
The relationship between teaching and learning is a most central issue in education research, but it is yet to be fully understood. Variation Theory provides an explanatory account for teaching and learning and offers a specific view on what it means to learn: to discriminate and to discern critical aspects of the object of learning. This paper…

Roembke, Tanja C.; Hazeltine, Eliot; Reed, Deborah K.; McMurray, Bob – Journal of Educational Psychology, 2019
Automaticity in word recognition has been hypothesized to be important in reading development (LaBerge & Samuels, 1974; Perfetti, 1985). However, when predicting educational outcomes, it is difficult to isolate the influence of automatic word recognition from factors such as processing speed or knowledge of grapheme-phoneme correspondences.…
