Mason, Lucia; Borella, Erika; Diakidoy, Irene-Anna N.; Butterfuss, Reese; Kendeou, Panayiota; Carretti, Barbara – Discourse Processes: A Multidisciplinary Journal, 2020
Inhibition is thought to help suppress interference from misconceptions in science learning. Using a pre-, post-, and delayed posttest design, we examined the influence on learning from science texts of three inhibitory-related functions--prepotent response inhibition, resistance to distractor interference, and resistance to proactive…

Wang, Elaine Lin; Matsumura, Lindsay Clare – Reading and Writing: An Interdisciplinary Journal, 2019
Writing analytically about text is a valued skill reflected in current academic standards. The quality of text-based writing opportunities in U.S. elementary schools, however, is generally weak, with variation in the rigor of the writing tasks teachers assign. Previous research suggests that teachers' beliefs about instruction significantly…

This study investigated the complexity of leveled passages used in four classroom reading assessments. A total of 167 passages leveled for Grades 1-6 from these assessments were analyzed using four analytical tools of text complexity. More traditional, two-factor measures of text complexity found a general trend of fairly consistent across-grade…
