Steele, Jennifer L.; Slater, Robert O.; Zamarro, Gema; Miller, Trey; Li, Jennifer; Burkhauser, Susan; Bacon, Michael – Grantee Submission, 2017
Using data from seven cohorts of language immersion lottery applicants in a large, urban school district, we estimate the causal effects of immersion programs on students' test scores in reading, mathematics, and science, and on English learners' (EL) reclassification. We estimate positive intent-to-treat (ITT) effects on reading performance in…

Lee, Kerry; Bull, Rebecca – Journal of Educational Psychology, 2016
Children with higher working memory or updating (WMU) capacity perform better in math. What is less clear is whether and how this relation varies with grade. Children (N = 673, kindergarten to Grade 9) participated in a 4-year cross-sequential study. Data from 3 WMU (Listening Recall, Mr. X, and an updating task) and a standardized math task…

Herrmann, Julia; Schmidt, Isabelle; Kessels, Ursula; Preckel, Franzis – British Journal of Educational Psychology, 2016
Background: Ability grouping can lower students' academic self-perceptions through reference group effects of class-average achievement on academic self-concept (ASC)--the "Big-fish-little-Pond"-effect (BFLPE; Marsh & Parker, 1984, J. "Pers. Soc. Psychol.," 47, 213). Although the effect itself is well documented, many open…

Ejsing-Duun, Stine; Skovbjerg, Helle Marie – Electronic Journal of e-Learning, 2016
This article explores how student behaviour and interactions change when teachers use "producing" as a primary pedagogical strategy (Papert, 1980; Ejsing-Duun and Karoff, 2014). Based on observed student and teacher actions and responses, as well as students' production, this paper emphasizes the importance of understanding how students…
