Lown, Elizabeth L.; Radley, Keith C.; Dart, Evan H.; Dufrene, Brad A.; Tingstrom, Daniel H.; Hayes, Lynda; Tannehill, Jennifer – Psychology in the Schools, 2021
A number of researchers have found behavior-specific praise (BSP) to be an effective strategy for increasing student academic engagement. Performance feedback is often used to promote teacher BSP; however, variations in how performance feedback is provided have been proposed and it is unknown whether one strategy may be more effective than others.…

Söylemez, Aydin – Malaysian Online Journal of Educational Technology, 2021
This research investigates the prediction of delaying gratification on game addiction among primary school students who attend the 3rd and 4th-grade. This study, in which the delay of gratification behaviour correlated with game addiction among children, was carried out using a descriptive survey model. The study sample consisted of 318 students…

Brock, Matthew E.; Barczak, Mary A.; Dueker, Scott A. – Focus on Autism and Other Developmental Disabilities, 2020
Coaching with live observation and immediate performance feedback is an effective means to train paraprofessionals, but might not always be feasible. We used a multiple baseline across participants design with six paraprofessionals who taught elementary students with severe disabilities to test the efficacy of two innovations designed to improve…

Barcelos Nomicos, Laura; Jacobs, Kenneth W.; Locey, Matthew L. – Analysis of Verbal Behavior, 2020
Human decision making is partly determined by the verbal stimuli involved in a choice. Verbal stimuli that may be particularly relevant to human decision making are the words "should" and "like," whereby "should" is presumably associated with what one ought to choose, and "like" is presumably associated with…

Haimovitz, Kyla; Dweck, Carol S.; Walton, Gregory M. – Developmental Science, 2020
Children's tendency to delay gratification predicts important life outcomes, yet little is known about how to enhance delay of gratification other than by teaching task-specific strategies. The present research investigated the effect of exposing children to a model who experiences the exertion of willpower as energizing. In two experiments, 86 4-…

Pecora, Giulia; Bellagamba, Francesca; Chiarotti, Flavia; Paoletti, Melania; Castano, Maria Letizia; Addessi, Elsa – Journal of Cognition and Development, 2020
We aimed to longitudinally examine how symbolic distancing affects preschool children's delay tolerance in a delay choice task. We presented children with choices between a smaller immediate reward and a larger delayed reward in conditions with either symbolic stimuli or edible rewards. Overall, symbolic distancing modulated children's delay…

Rudd, David – Children's Literature in Education, 2020
This article reconsiders Roald Dahl's "Charlie and the Chocolate Factory" 50 years after its initial UK publication, and over a hundred years since Dahl's birth. It suggests that the book has often been misinterpreted, in that the work is more critical of modern capitalism than is often recognised, capturing a post-World War II shift in…

Mazachowsky, Tessa R.; Mahy, Caitlin E. V. – Developmental Psychology, 2020
Future-oriented cognition (planning, prospective memory, episodic foresight, saving, and delay of gratification) involves a critical set of skills that children must develop for successful daily functioning. The current study developed the Children's Future Thinking Questionnaire (CFTQ), a parent-report on 3- to 7-year-olds' future-oriented…

O'Toole, Sarah E.; Monks, Claire P.; Tsermentseli, Stella; Rix, Katie – Early Child Development and Care, 2020
The primary aim of this study was to examine whether individual differences in cool and hot executive functions (EF) were associated with children's transition to school, in terms of both academic performance and classroom behaviour. Children between 5- and 7-years-of-age (N = 90) completed performance based assessments of cool and hot EF as well…

Corwyn, Robert F.; McGarry, Phillip P. – Statistics Education Research Journal, 2020
We tested a model that integrates academic delay of gratification with Expectancy Value Theory to predict achievement in an undergraduate psychology and nursing statistics class at a metropolitan university in the southeastern United States. We analyzed measurements (n = 163: 80.4% female) of past performance, academic delay of gratification,…

Sumter, Meagan E.; Gifford, Margaret R.; Tiger, Jeffrey H.; Effertz, Hannah M.; Fulton, Caitlin J. – Journal of Applied Behavior Analysis, 2020
Functional Communication Training (FCT) involves arranging extinction for problem behavior and reinforcement for a more desirable, functionally equivalent, communicative response (FCR). Although effective under ideal arrangements, the introduction of delays to reinforcement following the FCR can result in increased problem behavior. Austin and…

Van Reet, Jennifer – Infant and Child Development, 2020
There has long been a hypothesized link between pretend play and self-regulation in childhood, and several recent studies have confirmed a positive relation between the two in children as young as preschool-age. However, no research to date has investigated whether this relation is present in toddlerhood. The purpose of the present study is to…
