van der Kleij, Sanne W.; Groen, Margriet A.; Segers, Eliane; Verhoeven, Ludo – Scientific Studies of Reading, 2019
This study investigated in a longitudinal design how 74 Dutch children with dyslexia and 39 typically developing peers differed in sequential versus spatial implicit learning and overnight consolidation, and it examined whether implicit learning related to (pseudo)word reading development in Grades 5 and 6. The results showed that sequential, but…

Groen, Margriet A.; Veenendaal, Nathalie J.; Verhoeven, Ludo – Journal of Research in Reading, 2019
Text reading prosody and reading comprehension are related, but both rely on decoding. The aim of the current study was, therefore, to disentangle the contribution of decoding from that of prosody skills. We examined the performance on text reading prosody and speech prosody in fifth-grade children with age-appropriate decoding but weak…

We screened 513 fifth-grade children on their intellectual abilities and selected three groups of gifted children, scoring in the top 10%:…

These retrieval operations have however not been specified. Methods: We investigated the contribution of semantic retrieval to reading comprehension in 119 Dutch children in…

Paans, Cindy; Segers, Eliane; Molenaar, Inge; Verhoeven, Ludo – Journal of Computer Assisted Learning, 2018
In the present study, we investigated whether online learning behaviours (navigation and writing activities) mediated the relation between learner characteristics (prior knowledge, vocabulary knowledge, working memory, and motivation) and declarative knowledge. Specifically, we investigated whether the quality of participants' written assignments…
