Hunter, Jodie; Jones, Ian – Mathematics Education Research Group of Australasia, 2018
We administered specially-designed, free-response mathematics tasks to primary students (N = 583, ages five to 12 years old). Our focus was on whether (i) the children's responses could be reliably assessed, and (ii) the responses could provide insights into children's mathematical thinking. We used a contemporary comparative judgement technique,…

Petersen, Douglas B.; Gragg, Shelbi L.; Spencer, Trina D. – Language, Speech, and Hearing Services in Schools, 2018
Purpose: The purpose of this study was to examine how well a kindergarten dynamic assessment of decoding predicts future reading difficulty at 2nd, 3rd, 4th, and 5th grade and to determine whether the dynamic assessment improves the predictive validity of traditional static kindergarten reading measures. Method: With a small variation in sample…

Cullen, Amanda; Eames, Cheryl L.; Cullen, Craig J.; Barrett, Jeffrey E.; Sarama, Julie; Clements, Douglas H.; Van Dine, Douglas W. – Journal for Research in Mathematics Education, 2018
We examine the effects of 3 interventions designed to support Grades 2-5 children's growth in measuring rectangular regions in different ways. We employed the microgenetic method to observe and describe conceptual transitions and investigate how they may have been prompted by the interventions. We compared the interventions with respect to…

van der Ven, Sanne H. G.; Klaiber, Jonathan D.; van der Maas, Han L. J. – Educational Psychology, 2017
Writing down spoken number words (transcoding) is an ability that is predictive of math performance and related to working memory ability. We analysed these relationships in a large sample of over 25,000 children, from kindergarten to the end of primary school, who solved transcoding items with a computer adaptive system. Furthermore, we…

Bigozzi, Lucia; Tarchi, Christian; Pinto, Giuliana – Reading & Writing Quarterly, 2017
The purpose of this study was to investigate consistency in spelling skills across 2 different tasks of written production (dictation vs. composition) and stability of performance across 4 different grades. We assessed 2nd, 3rd, 4th, and 5th graders' spelling performance through 4 tasks: 2 dictation tasks (passage and sentences) and 2 composition…
