McCormick, Meghan P.; White, Hope; Horn, Elizabeth Parham; Lacks, Rachel Stephanie; O'Connor, Erin E.; Cappella, Elise; McClowry, Sandee G. – AERA Online Paper Repository, 2018
This study investigated the impacts of "INSIGHTS into Children's Temperament" on instructional support and math and reading skills in kindergarten and first grade classrooms with high levels of student shyness. "INSIGHTS" is a temperament-based intervention with teacher, parent, and classroom programs. 22 urban elementary…

Hunter, Jodie; Jones, Ian – Mathematics Education Research Group of Australasia, 2018
We administered specially-designed, free-response mathematics tasks to primary students (N = 583, ages five to 12 years old). Our focus was on whether (i) the children's responses could be reliably assessed, and (ii) the responses could provide insights into children's mathematical thinking. We used a contemporary comparative judgement technique,…

Hunter, Jodie; Miller, Jodie – Mathematics Education Research Group of Australasia, 2018
Pasifika cultures have a rich background of mathematics including a strong emphasis on patterns used within craft design (Finau & Stillman, 1995). However, there have been limited studies which have investigated the use of contextual Pasifika patterns in mathematics classrooms. The aim of this study was to explore how contextual Pasifika…

Robelo, Octaviano García; Pérez, Ileana Casasola – Bulgarian Comparative Education Society, 2017
This paper presents one product of a research report about the promotion of resilience in the school setting in two public secondary schools, located in Mexico and Germany, and its relation with the pupils' multiculturalism. The paper focuses on the need of the results' analysis to identify the school actors' perceptions of the promotion of…

Shi, Qinxin; Kestian, Jade; Liew, Jeffrey; Woltering, Steven – AERA Online Paper Repository, 2017
Self-regulation is increasingly considered as an important factor for child development. The present, nine-year, longitudinal study (N = 782) examines two components of self-regulation as predictors of later disciplinary status, anti-social involvement, and experiences with victimization. The teacher rating of self-regulation was identified as a…

Tang, Shifang; Guerrero, Cindy Lynn; Lopez, Tamara; Tong, Fuhui; Irby, Beverly J. – AERA Online Paper Repository, 2017
Using a low inference observation instrument, we investigated the effect of an ongoing, intensive, and structured virtual professional development [VPD] on fidelity of implementation across conditions in a randomized control trial validation study implemented in seven Texas school districts. The observations were collected three time in the…

Russo, James; Hopkins, Sarah – Mathematics Education Research Group of Australasia, 2017
The current investigation systematically contrasted teaching with cognitively demanding (challenging) tasks using a task-first lesson structure with that of a teach-first lesson structure in a primary school setting (Year 1 and 2). The findings indicate that there is more than one way of incorporating challenge tasks into mathematics lessons to…

Marcus, Amber; Perry, Bob; Dockett, Sue; MacDonald, Amy – Mathematics Education Research Group of Australasia, 2016
Much is known about preschool children's mathematics learning and the role of play in that learning. Many early childhood educators are quite adept at observing and documenting the mathematics learning of the children in their settings. These teachers "notice" the children's mathematics but they are not the only ones to…

Gould, Peter – Mathematics Education Research Group of Australasia, 2016
Learning the sequence of number words in English up to 30 is not a simple process. In NSW government schools taking part in "Early Action for Success," over 800 students in each of the first 3 years of school were assessed every 5 weeks over the school year to determine the highest correct oral count they could produce. Rather than…

Fletcher, Anna – Australian Association for Research in Education, 2016
Contemporary learning in Australia necessitates that students develop the capability to play an active role in their own learning. Yet, the student's role as an active agent in the learning process has not been fully examined. Drawing on the notion of assessment as generations informed by conflicting theoretical viewpoints, this paper explores how…

Mongillo, Geraldine; Kaplan, Rochelle G.; Feola, Dorothy; Vaknin-Nusbaum, Vered; Abbas, Randa; Neuman, Ari – AERA Online Paper Repository, 2016
The purpose of this study was to investigate the communicative strategies used by two effective first grade teachers whose students came from lower SES communities marked by a high incidence of school failure. One school was in Akko, Israel and one was in New Jersey in the US. In both settings, the teachers taught lessons in a language that was…

Hughes, Scott Frederick – AERA Online Paper Repository, 2016
There is a growing body of literature exploring pedagogies that promote children's happiness at school. Yet there is little research on teacher's conceptions of happiness, and how this informs their decisions about children. This paper reports on findings from a qualitative study exploring teachers' conceptions of happiness. Twelve teachers from…

Patrick, Susan Kemper – AERA Online Paper Repository, 2016
Ability grouping is a common educational practice utilized by elementary teachers during reading instruction. This study examines whether ability grouping operates as a form of educational stratification by examining the following research question: To what extent do student literacy skills, background characteristics, and prior group placement…

Chorney, Sean – North American Chapter of the International Group for the Psychology of Mathematics Education, 2016
This research reports on a class of grade one students engaging with number concepts using the iPad application TouchCounts. It is theorized that students develop understandings of number based on a materially engagement with both social and material resources. Rhythm is the fundamental unit of analysis used to attend to student engagement with…

Butvilofsky, Sandra Adriana; Sparrow, Wendy; Roberson, Nathan D.; Hopewell, Susan – AERA Online Paper Repository, 2016
This quasi-experimental study tested the efficacy of a research-based biliterate reading strategy, Lotta Lara, that is part of a larger paired literacy instructional program. Its purpose was to investigate whether Lotta Lara, which focuses on reading fluency, comprehension, and oracy through whole group instruction, impacted first grade emerging…
