A cognitive and a guidance dimension can describe the support of students' conceptual understanding in inquiry-based science education. The role of guidance for student learning has been intensively discussed. Furthermore, inquiry learning may pose particular challenges to students with low language proficiency. The present intervention in primary…

Mayer, Andreas; Motsch, Hans-Joachim – Journal of Education and Learning, 2015
This study analysed the effects of a classroom intervention focusing on phonological awareness and/or automatized word recognition in children with a deficit in the domains of phonological awareness and rapid automatized naming ("double deficit"). According to the double-deficit hypothesis (Wolf & Bowers, 1999), these children belong…

Retelsdorf, Jan; Schwartz, Katja; Asbrock, Frank – Journal of Educational Psychology, 2015
According to expectancy-value theory, the gender stereotypes of significant others such as parents, peers, or teachers affect students' competence beliefs, values, and achievement-related behavior. Stereotypically, gender beliefs about reading favor girls. The aim of this study was to investigate whether teachers' gender stereotypes in relation to…

Liefländer, Anne K.; Bogner, Franz X.; Kibbe, Alexandra; Kaiser, Florian G. – International Journal of Science Education, 2015
One aim of environmental education is fostering sustainable environmental action. Some environmental behaviour models suggest that this can be accomplished in part by improving people's knowledge. Recent studies have identified a distinct, psychometrically supported environmental knowledge structure consisting of system, action-related and…

Förster, Natalie; Souvignier, Elmar – School Psychology Review, 2015
Monitoring the learning progress of at-risk students positively affects learning growth. This study transfers the approach of learning progress assessment (LPA) to general education in Germany and investigates the effects of information about reading progress and additional teacher training on student achievement. Classes (n = 43) were assigned to…

Grünke, Matthias; Boon, Richard T.; Burke, Mack D. – International Journal for Research in Learning Disabilities, 2015
The purpose of this study was to illustrate the use of the randomization test for single-case research designs (SCR; Kratochwill & Levin, 2010). To demonstrate the application of this approach, a systematic replication of Grünke, Wilbert, and Calder Stegemann (2013) was conducted to evaluate the effects of a story map to improve the reading…

Oh, Hyerim; Sutherland, Margaret; Stack, Niamh; del Mar Badia, Maria; Blumen, Sheyla; Nguyen Quoc, Anh-Thu; Wormald, Catherine; Maakrun, Julie; Baier, Barbara; Schmidt, Martha; Ziegler, Albert – Online Submission, 2014
This cross-national scenario based study examined fourth-grade students' perceptions of high-performing classmates in terms of their expected intellectual abilities, positive social qualities and popularity among their peers across seven countries. The overall results show that high academic achievements predominantly lead to positive expectations…

Niepel, Christoph; Brunner, Martin; Preckel, Franzis – Journal of Educational Psychology, 2014
Students' cognitive and motivational profiles have a large impact on their academic careers. The development of such profiles can partly be explained by the reciprocal internal/external frame of reference model (RI/E model). The RI/E model predicts positive and negative longitudinal effects between academic self-concepts and achievements within…

Frischkorn, Gidon T.; Greiff, Samuel; Wüstenberg, Sascha – Journal of Educational Psychology, 2014
Complex problem solving (CPS) as a cross-curricular competence has recently attracted more attention in educational psychology as indicated by its implementation in international educational large-scale assessments such as the Programme for International Student Assessment. However, research on the development of CPS is scarce, and the few…

Haider, Hilde; Eichler, Alexandra; Hansen, Sonja; Vaterrodt, Bianca; Gaschler, Robert; Frensch, Peter A. – Frontline Learning Research, 2014
One crucial issue in mathematics development is how children come to spontaneously apply arithmetical principles (e.g. commutativity). According to expertise research, well-integrated conceptual and procedural knowledge is required. Here, we report a method composed of two independent tasks that assessed in an unobtrusive manner the spontaneous…

Stoeger, Heidrun; Sontag, Christine; Ziegler, Albert – Journal of Educational Psychology, 2014
We examined the impact of a teacher-led intervention, implemented during regular classroom instruction and homework, on fourth-grade students' preference for self-regulated learning, finding main ideas in expository texts, and reading comprehension. In our quasi-experimental study with intact classrooms, (a) students (n = 266, 12 classrooms) who…

Salaschek, Martin; Souvignier, Elmar – Journal of Psychoeducational Assessment, 2014
We examined a web-based mathematics progress monitoring tool for second graders. The tool monitors the learning progress of two competences, number sense and computation. A total of 414 students from 19 classrooms in Germany were checked every 3 weeks from fall to spring. Correlational analyses indicate that alternate-form reliability was adequate…

Beyermann, Sandra; Penke, Martina – International Journal of Disability, Development and Education, 2014
An auditory lexical decision experiment was conducted to find out whether sound-to-spelling consistency has an impact on German spoken word processing, and whether such an impact is different at different stages of reading development. Four groups of readers (school children in the second, third and fifth grades, and university students)…

Wattie, Nick; Tietjens, Maike; Schorer, Jörg; Ghanbari, Marie-Christine; Strauss, Bernd; Seidel, Ilka; Baker, Joseph – European Physical Education Review, 2014
The aim of the current study was to explore relative age's influence on physical and motor tests among fourth grade children (9 to 10 years) from Germany. Data from 1218 children (49% female) who had performed the German Motor Ability Test (Bös et al., 2009) were analysed. The test battery, which was comprised of physical and motor tests, included…

Quaiser-Pohl, Claudia; Neuburger, Sarah; Heil, Martin; Jansen, Petra; Schmelter, Andrea – International Journal of Testing, 2014
This article presents a reanalysis of the data of 862 second and fourth graders collected in two previous studies, focusing on the influence of method (psychometric vs. chronometric) and stimulus type on the gender difference in mental-rotation accuracy. The children had to solve mental-rotation tasks with animal pictures, letters, or cube…
