Zhang, Juan; Meng, Yaxuan; Fan, Xitao; Ortega-Llebaria, Marta; Ieong, Sao Leng – Educational Psychology, 2018
In English, positions of lexical stress in disyllabic words are associated with word categories; that is, nouns tend to be stressed more often on the first syllable, whereas verbs are more likely to be stressed on the second syllable (i.e. "sub"ject (noun) vs. sub"ject" (verb)). This phenomenon, which is called the stress…

Oon, Pey-Tee; Fan, Xitao – International Journal of Science Education, 2017
Students' attitude towards science (SAS) is often a subject of investigation in science education research. Survey of rating scale is commonly used in the study of SAS. The present study illustrates how Rasch analysis can be used to provide psychometric information of SAS rating scales. The analyses were conducted on a 20-item SAS scale used in an…

Xu, Jianzhong; Du, Jianxia; Fan, Xitao – Journal of Educational Research, 2017
The authors examined self-regulation of mathematics homework behavior (i.e., mathematics homework management). The participants consisted of 796 eighth-grade students (46 classes) in China. Multilevel results showed that mathematics homework management was positively associated with value belief at the class and individual level. At the individual…

Bai, Haiyan; Sivo, Stephen A.; Pan, Wei; Fan, Xitao – International Journal of Research & Method in Education, 2016
Among the commonly used resampling methods of dealing with small-sample problems, the bootstrap enjoys the widest applications because it often outperforms its counterparts. However, the bootstrap still has limitations when its operations are contemplated. Therefore, the purpose of this study is to examine an alternative, new resampling method…

Xu, Jianzhong; Fan, Xitao; Du, Jianxia – Journal of Psychoeducational Assessment, 2016
The goal of the current investigation was to evaluate psychometric properties of the Homework Distraction Scale (HDS) using 796 middle school students. Results from confirmatory factor analyses (CFAs) supported the presence of two distinct yet related subscales for the HDS: Conventional Distraction and Tech-Related Distraction. Results of…

Xu, Jianzhong; Du, Jianxia; Fan, Xitao – Educational Technology & Society, 2015
The present study investigates empirical models of groupwork management in online collaborative learning environments, based on the data from 298 students (86 groups) in United States. Data revealed that, at the group level, groupwork management was positively associated with feedback and help seeking. Data further revealed that, at the individual…

Du, Jianxia; Xu, Jianzhong; Fan, Xitao – Technology, Pedagogy and Education, 2015
This study examined predictive models for students' help seeking in the context of online collaborative groupwork. Results from multilevel analysis revealed that most of the variance in help seeking was at the individual student level, and multiple variables at the individual level were predictive of help-seeking behaviour. Help seeking was…

Fan, Xitao; Sun, Shaojing – Journal of Early Adolescence, 2014
In adolescence research, the treatment of measurement reliability is often fragmented, and it is not always clear how different reliability coefficients are related. We show that generalizability theory (G-theory) is a comprehensive framework of measurement reliability, encompassing all other reliability methods (e.g., Pearson "r,"…

Peugh, James; Fan, Xitao – Structural Equation Modeling: A Multidisciplinary Journal, 2012
Growth mixture modeling (GMM) has become a more popular statistical method for modeling population heterogeneity in longitudinal data, but the performance characteristics of GMM enumeration indexes in correctly identifying heterogeneous growth trajectories are largely unknown. Few empirical studies have addressed this issue. This study considered…
