Greenburg, Jordan E.; Carlson, Abby G.; Kim, Helyn; Curby, Timothy W.; Winsler, Adam – Early Education and Development, 2020
Early fine motor ability is significantly associated with later achievement, even after controlling for typical child-level predictors of school outcomes. Previous longitudinal studies have confirmed this but typically have not included low-income, at-risk populations. Research has distinguished two different aspects of fine motor skills: those…

Owens, Julie Sarno; Allan, Darcey M.; Kassab, Hannah; Mikami, Amori Yee – School Mental Health, 2020
The Academic Competence Evaluation Scales (ACES; DiPerna and Elliott in School Psychol Rev 31(3):293, 2002) is a 73-item teacher rating scale that assesses academic skills and enablers. The ACES Short Form (ASF) is a newly extracted 32-item short form of the ACES that has promising psychometric properties (Anthony and DiPerna in School Psychol Q…

Levesque, Kyle C.; Kieffer, Michael J.; Deacon, S. Hélène – Reading Research Quarterly, 2019
Skilled reading comprehension is an important goal of educational instruction and models of reading development. In this study, the authors investigated how core skills surrounding morphemes, that is, the minimal units of meaning in language, support the development of reading comprehension. The authors specifically contrast the roles of…

Zhang, Dongbo; Koda, Keiko; Leong, Che Kan; Pang, Elizabeth – Journal of Research in Reading, 2019
Background: While much is known about how morphological awareness (MA) contributes to reading development, little attention has been paid to how reading may conversely affect MA development, particularly in readers of Chinese in a bilingual/multilingual setting. Methods: The study adopted a cross-lagged panel design. Young bilingual readers of…

Silinskas, Gintautas; Kikas, Eve – Scandinavian Journal of Educational Research, 2019
The present study examined the longitudinal associations between children's perceptions of parental involvement in math homework (control and support) and their math performance and motivation (task-persistent homework behavior and math self-concept). Children (n = 512) reported their perceptions concerning parental involvement in sixth-grade math…

Yang, Qian; Tian, Lili; Huebner, E. Scott; Zhu, Xinxin – School Psychology, 2019
Situated within a positive psychology perspective, the current study examined the relations among academic achievement, self-esteem, and subjective well-being (SWB) in school among Chinese elementary school students using a longitudinal mediation model. A total of 807 elementary school students (M[subscript age] = 9.43 years; 52.9% male) completed…

Bottema-Beutel, Kristen; Malloy, Caitlin; Cuda, Josephine; Kim, So Yoon; MacEvoy, Julie Paquette – Journal of Autism and Developmental Disorders, 2019
We assessed 3rd-5th grade children's endorsement of 12 friendship expectations, in two mental age-matched (M = 10.15 years) groups; one with autism spectrum disorder (ASD; n = 20) and one with typical development (TD; n = 21). Groups rated friendship expectations similarly for all but one expectation, expressing care, which received significantly…

Hebbecker, Karin; Förster, Natalie; Souvignier, Elmar – Scientific Studies of Reading, 2019
Research on reading achievement and reading motivation has rarely addressed the question if and how they affect each other over time. In our study, we investigate the reciprocal effects between reading achievement and both intrinsic and extrinsic reading motivation during elementary school. We measured reading achievement and intrinsic and…

Van Der Ven, Sanne; de Bree, Elise – Scientific Studies of Reading, 2019
Spelling is influenced by implicit cues, but less is known about variability in this reliance. We assessed whether the influence of three implicit cues on Dutch past tense spelling was moderated by grade, literacy, and format. An Auditory infinitive, Written infinitive, and Picture+cloze format was completed by 68 third-graders and 47…

Peura, Pilvi I.; Viholainen, Helena J. K.; Aro, Tuija I.; Räikkönen, Eija M.; Usher, Ellen L.; Sorvo, Riikka M. A.; Klassen, Robert M.; Aro, Mikko T. – Journal of Experimental Education, 2019
We investigated the specificity of reading self-efficacy among second- to fifth-grade children in Finland (N = 1,327). Bandura (1997) theorized that efficacy beliefs can be assessed at different levels of specificity; however, empirical support for this view is scarce among young children. Efficacy beliefs targeting reading-related activities were…

Troyer, Margaret; Kim, James S.; Hale, Elizabeth; Wantchekon, Kristia A.; Armstrong, Catherine – Reading and Writing: An Interdisciplinary Journal, 2019
Children's motivation to read is a strong predictor of their reading comprehension. However, some recent research has suggested that the relationship between reading motivation and reading comprehension may be mediated through the amount that students read. This study attempts a conceptual replication of several existing models that explore the…

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…

Colmar, Susan; Liem, Gregory Arief D.; Connor, Julie; Martin, Andrew J. – Educational Psychology, 2019
Academic buoyancy is a construct relevant to the schooling lives of students, defining how they overcome or 'bounce back' from everyday academic adversity. The present study was correlational in design and examined academic buoyancy in 191 upper primary-aged students, focusing on its association with reading and mathematics performance, and the…

Williford, Anne; Fite, Paula J.; Isen, Debbie; Poquiz, Jonathan – Psychology in the Schools, 2019
The purpose of the present study is to examine whether physical and relational victimization negatively impacts indicators of school climate--students' perceptions of school safety, their attachment to school, and their help-seeking behavior--and whether gender moderates these associations. Using a sample of 361 third through fifth-grade students…
