Todhunter-Reid, Abigail – Arts Education Policy Review, 2019
The aim of this study was to estimate the within-child associations of in-school arts education and achievement in reading and mathematics, using four waves of data (kindergarten, 1st-grade, 3rd-grade, and 5th-grade) from the Early Childhood Longitudinal Study. Fixed effects techniques were applied to adjust for the confounding effects of all…

Vicente, Marta Martínez; Riveiro, José Manuel Suárez; Barroso, Carlos Valiente – Electronic Journal of Research in Educational Psychology, 2019
Introduction: Executive functions involve cognitive and metacognitive abilities that make up a sophisticated system that monitors and reviews conduct involved in decision-making. These functions are critical for carrying out tasks and adaptive behavior. Among its components are inhibitory and attentional control, planning, self-regulation and…

Mouw, Jolien M.; Saab, Nadira; Janssen, Jeroen; Vedder, Paul – Social Psychology of Education: An International Journal, 2019
High-quality helping behavior is essential for effective peer interaction and learning. This study focused on ethnic group composition and the quality of group interaction as predictors of individual mathematics performance. Video-observations of 92 fifth-grade students working in groups balanced on mathematics performance level were analyzed. We…

Visser, Margaretha M.; Juan, Andrea L.; Hannan, Sylvia M. – South African Journal of Childhood Education, 2019
Background: The acquired skill set prior to school entry has emerged as an important issue in research and policy internationally. Much evidence exists advocating the importance of early numeracy and literacy skills in later academic achievement and economic outcomes of students. Aim: The goal of this study was to determine the association between…

Nelson, Peter M.; Van Norman, Ethan R.; Parker, David C.; Cormier, Damien C. – Journal of Applied School Psychology, 2019
Data from a large-scale math intervention program were used to evaluate the degree to which implementation fidelity (IF) and interventionist content knowledge were associated with student outcomes. Data were available for 33 interventionists serving 658 students in Grades 4-6 across one school year. A series of multilevel models were fit to the…

King, Kathleen R.; Gonzales, Christine Rivera; Reinke, Wendy M. – Journal of Emotional and Behavioral Disorders, 2019
Students with early indicators of behavior risk have predictable, negative outcomes, and those with co-existing academic problems have significantly more negative outcomes. Identifying academic subclasses of students with behavior risk can inform integrated interventions and school-based problem-solving teams. In addition, identifying academic…

Kuhfeld, Megan – Phi Delta Kappan, 2019
It has been common knowledge for decades that poor and working-class students tend to experience "summer learning loss," a drop in performance between spring and fall that serves to widen the gap between students. However, new research shows that the reality of summer learning loss is more complex. Megan Kuhfeld draws on data from the…

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.…

Park, Sira; Holloway, Susan D. – Journal of Educational Research, 2017
Policymakers view parental involvement (PI) as a crucial component of school reform efforts, but evidence of its effect on student achievement is equivocal. Using the Early Childhood Longitudinal Study-Kindergarten Cohort dataset, we examined the long-term impact on student- and school-level achievement of three types of school-based PI: PI to…

Kahan, David; McKenzie, Thomas L. – Journal of School Health, 2017
Background: We assessed the associations of 5 school and 7 neighborhood variables with fifth-grade students achieving Healthy Fitness Zone (HFZ) or Needs Improvement-Health Risk (NI-HR) on aerobic capacity (AC) and body composition (BC) physical fitness components of the state-mandated FITNESSGRAM® physical fitness test. Methods: Data for outcome…

Sulis, Isabella; Toland, Michael D. – Journal of Early Adolescence, 2017
Item response theory (IRT) models are the main psychometric approach for the development, evaluation, and refinement of multi-item instruments and scaling of latent traits, whereas multilevel models are the primary statistical method when considering the dependence between person responses when primary units (e.g., students) are nested within…

Stevens, Joseph J.; Schulte, Ann C. – Journal of Learning Disabilities, 2017
This study examined mathematics achievement growth of students without disabilities (SWoD) and students with learning disabilities (LD) and tested whether growth and LD status interacted with student demographic characteristics. Growth was estimated in a statewide sample of 79,554 students over Grades 3 to 7. The LD group was significantly lower…

Denner, Jill; Laursen, Brett; Dickson, Daniel; Hartl, Amy C. – Journal of Early Adolescence, 2018
The influence of parental beliefs and behaviors on children's math confidence and performance is well documented, but few studies examine these associations over time, or in large samples of Latino/a families. This study used longitudinal data from 247 (114 sons and 133 daughters) mother-child dyads to examine whether maternal math gender…

Switzer, J. Matt – International Journal for Mathematics Teaching and Learning, 2016
Research findings have established that students often struggle with mathematical symbols including common misconceptions for literal symbolic representations of variables but provide little evidence of when or how these misconceptions arise. This article reports findings from a study of grade 4-6 students' conception(s) for various…

Ivrendi, Asiye – Mathematics Education Research Journal, 2016
Number sense and self-regulation are considered foundational skills for later school learning. This study aimed to investigate the predictive power of kindergarten children's number sense and self-regulation scores on their mathematics and Turkish language examination scores in the 5th and 6th grades. The participants in this study were 5th grade…
