Rønneberg, Vibeke; Torrance, Mark – Reading and Writing: An Interdisciplinary Journal, 2019
Spelling accuracy and time course was investigated in a sample of 100 Norwegian 6th grade students completing a standardized spelling-to-dictation task. Students responded by keyboard with accurate recordings of response-onset latency (RT) and inter-keypress interval (IKI). We determined effects of a number of child-level cognitive ability…

Kandel, Sonia; Peereman, Ronald; Ghimenton, Anna; Perret, Cyril – Reading and Writing: An Interdisciplinary Journal, 2019
The present research is a cross-linguistic study indicating that the timing of motor production not only depends on the shape of a letter and the activation of its motor program but also on the way the orthographic representations encode the letters for spelling retrieval. English and Italian-speaking participants wrote cognate words (e.g.,…

Mentzer, Gale A.; Czerniak, Charlene M.; Duckett, T. Ryan – School Science and Mathematics, 2019
Alternative pathways to teaching licensure were developed to address teacher shortages. These programs differ widely, making it difficult to generalize the effects. This study compares the impact of two alternative licensure programs on the development of fundamental elements of science teacher preparation and persistence. The fast-track programs…

Astivia, Oscar L. Olvera; Zumbo, Bruno D. – Practical Assessment, Research & Evaluation, 2019
Within psychology and the social sciences, Ordinary Least Squares (OLS) regression is one of the most popular techniques for data analysis. In order to ensure the inferences from the use of this method are appropriate, several assumptions must be satisfied, including the one of constant error variance (i.e. homoskedasticity). Most of the training…

Quémart, Pauline; Lambert, Eric – Reading and Writing: An Interdisciplinary Journal, 2019
Grapheme and syllable units have been shown to influence the dynamics of handwriting in adults and children, but the influence of morphemes remains to be clarified. We tested the ability of French-speaking adults and fourth and sixth grade children to process the morphological structure of words during writing. They were asked to copy three types…

Planton, Samuel; Jucla, Mélanie; Démonet, Jean-François; Soum-Favaro, Christiane – Reading and Writing: An Interdisciplinary Journal, 2019
Recent studies on written word production aim at studying how information is transmitted between central (linguistic) and peripheral (motor) processes. Neurocognitive models propose that the interface between both types of processes would rely on a frontal writing center (i.e. the GMFA or "Exner's area"). However there is still debate…
