Francis, Leslie J.; Casson, Ann; McKenna, Ursula – Journal of Beliefs & Values, 2018
This study argues that it is the collective worldview of the students which is crucial in reflecting and shaping the ethos of schools. In order to understand the potential distinctiveness of Christian ethos schools two analyses were undertaken. The collective worldview of 2942 students attending 10 Christian ethos schools was compared with the…

Sorariutta, Anne; Silvén, Maarit – Infant and Child Development, 2018
Finnish students' international success in mathematics has been largely explained by the high-quality compulsory basic education system, while increasing evidence suggests that early childhood contexts can also promote development long before formal instruction begins. This study examined, in a sample of 66 mother-infant dyads, 2 early contextual…

Hodis, Flaviu A. – Journal of Educational Psychology, 2018
This article aims to enhance understanding of the nomological network of expectancy of success beliefs related to mathematics. To this end, the paper uses the expectancy-value, regulatory focus, and regulatory mode theoretical frameworks and investigates 3 key classes of motivation predictors: (a) General motivation predispositions that center on…

Chiu, Ming Ming – Journal of Learning Analytics, 2018
Learning analysts often consider whether learning processes across time are related (1) to one another or (2) to learning outcomes at higher levels. For example, are a group's temporal sequences of talk (e.g., correct evaluation [right arrow] correct, new idea) during its problem solving related to its group solution? I show how to address these…

Carreira, Susana; Baioa, Ana Margarida – ZDM: The International Journal on Mathematics Education, 2018
Based on a teaching intervention with modelling activities involving experimental work in 9th grade classes, the goal of this study is to find out how students estimate the credibility a modelling task setting when it integrates a hands-on experimental approach. The theoretical background is based on the concept of authenticity and its long…

Vorhölter, Katrin – ZDM: The International Journal on Mathematics Education, 2018
Metacognitive competencies are of great importance for developing modelling competencies. However, there are assumptions about useful metacognitive knowledge and strategies for individuals working on modelling problems as well as for whole groups, but their coherence as well as their influence on modelling processes is not evaluated…

Krawitz, Janina; Schukajlow, Stanislaw – ZDM: The International Journal on Mathematics Education, 2018
Posing modelling problems in class is supposed to increase students' motivation. As motivation is assumed to emerge from task value and self-efficacy expectations, the present study considered both constructs with the aims to examine (1) whether students have different values and self-efficacy expectations concerning modelling problems versus…

Sellin, Jonathan – Teaching History, 2018
Frustrated by his pupils' tendency to compartmentalise source analysis into two discrete parts of 'source' and 'own knowledge', Jonathan Sellin reflected that his use of scaffolds might be to blame. Inspired by recent work by teacher-researchers Hammond and King on the importance of secure substantive knowledge in the area of extended writing,…

Stoll, Michael R. – ProQuest LLC, 2018
The "college readiness" movement of the past decade coupled with the widespread adoption of Common Core State Standards (CCSS) has generated pressure on content area teachers to develop disciplinary thinking skills while also providing more opportunities for student writing. The purpose of this three-article dissertation is to understand…

Ubani, Martin – Journal of Beliefs & Values, 2018
The focus of this article is on 9th grade students' (N = 9) perceptions on aspects that make them feel authentic in integrated religious education (RE) lessons among students of various faiths. All of the students had previously studied RE in segregated groups. The data was collected in a collaborative teaching experiment in Finland with student…

Garrison, Kasey L.; FitzGerald, Lee; Sheerman, Alinda – School Library Research, 2018
Guided Inquiry (GI) is an emerging pedagogy based on the Information Search Process (ISP), a research-based information-literacy model identified by Carol C. Kuhlthau (1985, 1988a, 1988b, 1988c, 1989b) and operationalized by the Guided Inquiry Design (GID) process (Kuhlthau, Maniotes, and Caspari 2007, 2012, 2015). This study investigated…

Tengberg, Michael – Language Assessment Quarterly, 2018
Reading comprehension is often treated as a multidimensional construct. In many reading tests, items are distributed over reading process categories to represent the subskills expected to constitute comprehension. This study explores (a) the extent to which specified subskills of reading comprehension tests are conceptually conceivable to…
