Phillips Galloway, Emily; Uccelli, Paola – Journal of Educational Psychology, 2019
Although many adolescents struggle to comprehend text, the school-relevant language skills, which might contribute to variation in reading comprehension ability during this developmental period, remain understudied. To expand the research base, this study examines the concurrent development of academic language skills and reading comprehension in…

Paul, Jacob M.; Gray, Sarah A.; Butterworth, Brian L.; Reeve, Robert A. – Journal of Educational Psychology, 2019
Children's early math abilities have been claimed to depend differentially on various cognitive competencies (e.g., core number skills, working memory, and general math and reading abilities). Clarifying the relative importance of these different cognitive markers in predicting key early math skills would provide a conceptual framework for…

Wilson, Joshua; Chen, Dandan; Sandbank, Micheal P.; Hebert, Michael – Journal of Educational Psychology, 2019
The present study examined issues pertaining to the reliability of writing assessment in the elementary grades, and among samples of struggling and nonstruggling writers. The present study also extended nascent research on the reliability and the practical applications of automated essay scoring (AES) systems in Response to Intervention frameworks…

Hjetland, Hanne Naess; Lervåg, Arne; Lyster, Solveig-Alma Halaas; Hagtvet, Bente Eriksen; Hulme, Charles; Melby-Lervåg, Monica – Journal of Educational Psychology, 2019
The two major determinants of reading comprehension are language comprehension and decoding, but prior studies of the development of reading comprehension from an early age show inconsistent results. To clarify these inconsistencies we report a 6-year longitudinal study (starting at Age 4 years) where we control for measurement error and track the…

Garcia, Elisa B.; Sulik, Michael J.; Obradovic, Jelena – Journal of Educational Psychology, 2019
Teacher-report is commonly used to assess executive functions (EFs) in schools, but teachers' perceptions of EF skills may be biased by students' demographic characteristics. In this short-term longitudinal study, we assessed whether students' gender, ethnicity, and English language learner (ELL) status predicted teachers' reports of students'…

Bennett, Amy; Inglis, Matthew; Gilmore, Camilla – Journal of Educational Psychology, 2019
Parents are frequently advised to use number books to help their children learn the meaning of number words and symbols. How should these resources be designed to best support learning? Previous research has shown that number books typically include multiple concrete representations of number. However, a large body of mathematics education…

Usher, Ellen L.; Li, Caihong R.; Butz, Amanda R.; Rojas, Joanne P. – Journal of Educational Psychology, 2019
Psychological factors such as grit and self-efficacy have been heralded as powerful predictors of performance. Their joint contribution to the prediction of early adolescents' school success has not been fully investigated, however. The purpose of this study was to examine U.S. elementary and middle school students' (N = 2,430) grit (assessed as…

Cho, Eunsoo; Capin, Philip; Roberts, Greg; Roberts, Garrett J.; Vaughn, Sharon – Journal of Educational Psychology, 2019
In the present study, we compared the extent to which linguistic comprehension (vocabulary and listening comprehension) and word reading explain reading comprehension differentially for English learners (ELs) and non-ELs with reading difficulties. We also investigated whether different mechanisms of reading comprehension failure exist for each…

Kearns, Devin M.; Al Ghanem, Reem – Journal of Educational Psychology, 2019
In an effort to improve oral reading, beginning and remedial reading programs in English focus on phonological awareness skills and recoding with grapheme--phoneme correspondences. The meanings of the words children practice reading aloud are given little emphasis. Some studies now suggest semantic knowledge may have a direct effect on children's…

Deacon, S. Hélène; Kieffer, Michael – Journal of Educational Psychology, 2018
The authors tested theoretically driven predictions as to the ways in which syntactic awareness, or awareness of word order within sentences, might contribute to reading comprehension, the end goal of reading development and instruction. They conducted a longitudinal study of 100 English-speaking children followed from Grade 3 to 4. Children…

DiPerna, James Clyde; Lei, Puiwa; Cheng, Weiyi; Hart, Susan Crandall; Bellinger, Jillian – Journal of Educational Psychology, 2018
The purpose of this study was to evaluate the efficacy of a universal social skills program, the Social Skills Improvement System Classwide Intervention Program (SSIS-CIP; Elliott & Gresham, 2007), for students in first grade. Classrooms from 6 elementary schools were randomly assigned to treatment or business-as-usual control conditions.…

Martin, Andrew J.; Lazendic, Goran – Journal of Educational Psychology, 2018
The present study investigated the implications of computer-adaptive testing (operationalized by way of multistage adaptive testing; MAT) and "conventional" fixed order computer testing for various test-relevant outcomes in numeracy, including achievement, test-relevant motivation and engagement, and subjective test experience. It did so…

Fink, Elian; Patalay, Praveetha; Sharpe, Helen; Wolpert, Miranda – Journal of Educational Psychology, 2018
A great deal of bullying behavior takes place at school, however, existing literature has predominantly focused on individual characteristics of children associated with bullying with less attention on school-level factors. The current study, comprising 23,215 children (51% boys) recruited from Year 4 or Year 5 (M = 9.06 years, SD = 0.56 years)…

Martin, Andrew J.; Lazendic, Goran – Journal of Educational Psychology, 2018
With the rise of large-scale academic assessment programs around the world, there is a need to better understand the factors predicting students' achievement in these assessment exercises. This investigation into national numeracy assessment drew on ecological and transactional conceptualizing involving student, student/home, and school factors.…

Devine, Amy; Hill, Francesca; Carey, Emma; Szucs, Dénes – Journal of Educational Psychology, 2018
A negative correlation between math anxiety and mathematics performance is frequently reported. Thus, some may assume that high levels of mathematics anxiety are associated with poor mathematical understanding. However, no previous research has clearly measured the association between mathematics anxiety and mathematical learning disability. To…
