Humble, Steve; Dixon, Pauline; Schagen, Ian – Assessment in Education: Principles, Policy & Practice, 2018
The research set out in this paper attempts to identify whether one of three conventional IQ tests is more capable of identifying intellectual potential amongst poor children in Dar es Salaam. To this end 1857 children from 17 government schools in poor districts of Dar es Salaam were asked to complete a questionnaire and undertake a range of…

Pritchard, Madeleine; Hilari, Katerina; Cocks, Naomi; Dipper, Lucy – International Journal of Language & Communication Disorders, 2018
Background: Discourse in adults with aphasia is increasingly the focus of assessment and therapy research. A broad range of measures is available to describe discourse, but very limited information is available on their psychometric properties. As a result, the quality of these measures is unknown, and there is very little evidence to motivate the…

Hassler Hallstedt, Martin; Klingberg, Torkel; Ghaderi, Ata – Journal of Educational Psychology, 2018
Using a randomized placebo controlled design, we examined the direct and follow-up effects (at 6 and 12 months) of a mathematics tablet intervention. Math training focused primarily on basic arithmetic (addition and subtraction facts up to 12), and secondarily on number knowledge and word problems. We investigated the moderating effects of IQ and…

Salihu, Linda; Aro, Mikko; Räsänen, Pekka – Issues in Educational Research, 2018
The aim of this study is to examine the mathematics skills of fourth-grade children from Kosovo in relation to their background characteristics. Seventy-six children, out of 233 tested, who were identified with learning difficulties in mathematics were further assessed during fifth and sixth grades, in mathematics skills and reading comprehension.…

D' Souza, Dorothy A. C.; Clare, A. C. – Journal on School Educational Technology, 2018
Situated Learning takes place in the social and physical context within which it will be used. In this model, the pupil is "situated" in the learning experience and knowledge acquisition becomes a part of their learning activity. From their experiences pupils "construct" their own knowledge in various learning situations. The…

Hanley, Mary; Khairat, Mariam; Taylor, Korey; Wilson, Rachel; Cole-Fletcher, Rachel; Riby, Deborah M. – Developmental Psychology, 2017
Paying attention is a critical first step toward learning. For children in primary school classrooms there can be many things to attend to other than the focus of a lesson, such as visual displays on classroom walls. The aim of this study was to use eye-tracking techniques to explore the impact of visual displays on attention and learning for…

Welter, Marisete Maria; Jaarsveld, Saskia; Lachmann, Thomas – Creativity Research Journal, 2017
Previous research showed that in primary school, children's intelligence develops continually, but creativity develops more irregularly. In this study, the development of intelligence, measured traditionally, i.e., operating within well-defined problem spaces (Standard Progressive Matrices) was compared with the development of intelligence…

Layes, Smail; Lalonde, Robert; Rebaï, Mohamed – Reading & Writing Quarterly, 2017
This study explored the role and extent of the involvement of morphological awareness (MA) in contrast to rapid automatized naming (RAN) in word reading and comprehension of Arabic as a morphologically based orthography. We gave measures of word reading, reading comprehension, MA, and RAN in addition to a nonverbal mental ability test to 3 groups…

Nouwens, Suzan; Groen, Margriet A.; Verhoeven, Ludo – Reading and Writing: An Interdisciplinary Journal, 2017
Working memory is considered a well-established predictor of individual variation in reading comprehension in children and adults. However, how storage and processing capacities of working memory in both the phonological and semantic domain relate to reading comprehension is still unclear. In the current study, we investigated the contribution of…

Wong, Terry T.-Y.; Ho, Connie S.-H.; Tang, Joey – Journal of Learning Disabilities, 2017
Developmental dyscalculia (DD) is a specific learning disability in mathematics that affects around 6% of the population. Currently, the core deficit of DD remains unknown. While the number sense deficit hypothesis suggests that the core deficit of DD lies in the inability to represent nonsymbolic numerosity, the access deficit hypothesis suggests…

van Rijk, Yvonne; de Mey, Langha; de Haan, Dorian; van Oers, Bert; Volman, Monique – Research Papers in Education, 2017
Content-oriented reading interventions that focus on the integration of motivational enhancement and strategy instruction have been found to have positive effects. Developmental education (DE) in the Netherlands is an innovative content-oriented approach in which reading is an integral part of an inquiry-oriented curriculum. Reading for meaning is…

Ching, Boby Ho-Hong; Nunes, Terezinha – Journal of Educational Psychology, 2017
This longitudinal study examines the relative importance of counting ability, additive reasoning, and working memory in children's mathematical achievement (calculation and story problem solving). In Hong Kong, 115 Chinese children aged 6 years old participated in 2 waves of assessments (T1 = first grade and T2 = second grade). Multiple regression…

Wong, Terry Tin-Yau; Ho, Connie Suk-Han – Journal of Educational Psychology, 2017
Arithmetic word-problem solving is an important component of elementary mathematics curricula that links school mathematics to real-life problem solving. The present 3-year longitudinal study examined children's arithmetic word-problem solving through understanding its 2 component processes: number-sentence construction and computation. Chinese…

Rudnitsky, Al; Barclay, Catharine; Binger, Lauren – Middle School Journal, 2017
This study explores the effectiveness of a workshop and accompanying conceptual framework designed to help middle school students become better participants in group work. The framework is designated BRAVE (build on ideas, risk tentative thoughts, ask good questions, value other perspectives, and use evidence). The framework is based on research…
