Broadbent, H. J.; Osborne, T.; Rea, M.; Peng, A.; Mareschal, D.; Kirkham, N. Z. – Developmental Psychology, 2018

However, although research has examined the modulating effect of unisensory and multisensory distractors on multisensory processing, the extent to which…

Devine, Amy; Hill, Francesca; Carey, Emma; Szucs, Dénes – Journal of Educational Psychology, 2018
A negative correlation between math anxiety and mathematics performance is frequently reported. Thus, some may assume that high levels of mathematics anxiety are associated with poor mathematical understanding. However, no previous research has clearly measured the association between mathematics anxiety and mathematical learning disability. To…

English as an additional language (EAL) and language diversity attract much interest amongst policymakers and educationists; yet little is known about the performance in English schools of EAL pupils who are not fluent in English and speak different languages at home. The findings of the aggregated data confirm that EAL pupils achieved less well…

Bailey, Elizabeth G.; Marsden, Emma – Language and Education, 2017
The use of home languages has previously been advocated in highly multilingual UK classrooms. However, drawing on the home languages and cultural insight of children who use English as an Additional Language (EAL) may also have important social and academic benefits in contexts where monolingualism is the norm. Conducted in a small local authority…
