Chen, Chih-Ming; Chen, Liang-Chun; Yang, Shun-Min – Computer Assisted Language Learning, 2019
In recent years, numerous English vocabulary learning-assisted apps have been developed to enlarge learners' English vocabulary through mobile learning. However, the ability of learners to engage in self-regulated learning (SRL) importantly affects performance in autonomously learning English vocabulary using mobile apps. Therefore, this study…

Layes, Smail; Lalonde, Robert; Rebai, Mohamed – Reading & Writing Quarterly, 2019
We examined the effects of an adaptive phonological training program on the enhancement of 3 processing abilities--namely, phonological awareness, rapid automatized naming, and phonological short-term memory--as well as word and pseudoword reading in Arabic-speaking children with dyslexia. We compared an experimental group (n = 20; mean age =…

McKeown, Debra; FitzPatrick, Erin; Brown, Megan; Brindle, Mary; Owens, Julie; Hendrick, Robert – Reading and Writing: An Interdisciplinary Journal, 2019
Writing allows access to venues often limited by poverty, disabilities, and geography. Promoting writing skills can create bridges to overcome the isolation that often keeps communities from engaging with one another. However, most of the students in the nation's schools are not capable writers and find the persuasive genres challenging. In this…

Ferretti, Ralph P.; Lewis, William E. – Reading and Writing: An Interdisciplinary Journal, 2019
We assessed the influence of genre-specific discourse knowledge and writing goals on the persuasive writing of 4th and 6th grade students with and without learning disabilities (LD). Students were first interviewed about their knowledge of persuasion and persuasive writing. They then wrote a persuasive essay about a controversial topic after…

Jones, Ian; Bisson, Marie; Gilmore, Camilla; Inglis, Matthew – British Educational Research Journal, 2019
An impediment to conducting high-quality quantitative research studies in education is the paucity of valid measures of learning gains. Studies often seek to investigate students' deep, conceptual understanding yet many measures assess only surface, procedural understanding. One reason is that the development of validated measures of conceptual…

Dinsmore, Daniel L.; Fox, Emily; Parkinson, Meghan M.; Bilgili, Devrim – Journal of Experimental Education, 2019
Explanatory patterns regarding situational differences in reading comprehension performance may be best captured by multidimensional reader profiles. Data from 56 third- and fifth-grade students were collected to investigate the applicability, scope, and convergent validity of a reader profiling scheme based on Alexander's (2005) reader profile…

Lyster, Roy – Language Teaching Research, 2019
This article recounts three studies that portray an evolution from research examining the effects of researcher-designed instructional interventions to research examining the impact of helping teachers to design their own instructional interventions. Study 1 investigated the effects of an instructional treatment designed by the research team on…

Khelifi, Rachid; Sparrow, Laurent; Casalis, Séverine – Scientific Studies of Reading, 2019
In the present study, the frequency effect was examined specifically in text reading in developing and expert readers. Third graders, fifth graders, and expert readers read the same short text containing high- and low-frequency words while their eye movements were recorded. The frequency effect was observed in temporal and spatial measures of eye…

Shilo, Anat; Kramarski, Bracha – ZDM: The International Journal on Mathematics Education, 2019
This study aims to investigate a mathematical-metacognitive discourse model with IMPROVE metacognitive self-question prompts (What, How/When, and Why) in order to promote a deeper level of discourse in mathematics classes. The study involved 32 math teachers and 824 fifth-grade students (from 32 public schools) from one district in Israel.…

Sun, Koun Tem; Chen, Meng Hsun – International Journal of Distance Education Technologies, 2019
From random interviews of mathematics teachers, the researchers are conscious that students have difficulties in solving problems regarding compound body volume measurement. The researchers found the main factor involved in the difficulties was incomplete spatial concepts. Augmented reality (AR), which is a kind of educational technology, has been…
