Peura, Pilvi I.; Viholainen, Helena J. K.; Aro, Tuija I.; Räikkönen, Eija M.; Usher, Ellen L.; Sorvo, Riikka M. A.; Klassen, Robert M.; Aro, Mikko T. – Journal of Experimental Education, 2019
We investigated the specificity of reading self-efficacy among second- to fifth-grade children in Finland (N = 1,327). Bandura (1997) theorized that efficacy beliefs can be assessed at different levels of specificity; however, empirical support for this view is scarce among young children. Efficacy beliefs targeting reading-related activities were…

van der Ven, Sanne H. G.; Klaiber, Jonathan D.; van der Maas, Han L. J. – Educational Psychology, 2017
Writing down spoken number words (transcoding) is an ability that is predictive of math performance and related to working memory ability. We analysed these relationships in a large sample of over 25,000 children, from kindergarten to the end of primary school, who solved transcoding items with a computer adaptive system. Furthermore, we…
