Milton, Jessica H.; Flores, Margaret M.; Moore, Alexcia J.; Taylor, Ja'Lia J.; Burton, Megan E. – Learning Disability Quarterly, 2019
To meet increasingly complex mathematics standards in late elementary school, students must conceptually understand and be fluent in the operations of multiplication and division. This includes understanding the operations' inverse relation. The purpose of the study was to investigate the effects of alternating concrete-representational-abstract…

Clarke, Frederick C.; Burt, Walter L. – Education and Urban Society, 2019
Charter schools in urban environments have been scrutinized for their effectiveness. This study attempted to determine whether students attending Midwestern urban charter schools outperformed students in traditional schools on the state's accountability system over a 5-year time period. Using a quasi-experimental research design, data were…

Chen, Yu-ching – Journal of Educational Computing Research, 2019
Motivation and math anxiety are crucial in performance and satisfaction, and augmented reality (AR) may be a useful tool in enhancing these factors because it provides users with interesting visual experiences. Since related empirical research is limited in investigating the effects of using free mobile AR apps integrating Keller's ARCS…

Parr, Alyssa; Amemiya, Jamie; Wang, Ming-Te – Educational Psychology, 2019
Emotions are central to how students experience mathematics, yet we know little about how specific instructional practices relate to students' emotions in mathematics learning. We examined how dialogic instruction, a socially dynamic form of instruction, was associated with four learning emotions in mathematics: enjoyment, pride, anger, and…

Nelson, Peter M.; Van Norman, Ethan R.; Parker, David C.; Cormier, Damien C. – Journal of Applied School Psychology, 2019
Data from a large-scale math intervention program were used to evaluate the degree to which implementation fidelity (IF) and interventionist content knowledge were associated with student outcomes. Data were available for 33 interventionists serving 658 students in Grades 4-6 across one school year. A series of multilevel models were fit to the…

Chesnutt, Katherine; Gail Jones, M.; Corin, Elysa N.; Hite, Rebecca; Childers, Gina; Perez, Mariana P.; Cayton, Emily; Ennes, Megan – Journal of Research in Science Teaching, 2019
This study examined the relationship between students' (N = 229) concepts of size and scale and students' achievement in science and mathematics over a 3-year period. Size and scale are considered one of the big ideas in science that permeates disparate science and mathematics content areas, yet little is known about the relationship between…

Kan, Adnan; Bulut, Okan; Cormier, Damien C. – Educational Assessment, 2019
Item stem formats can alter the cognitive complexity as well as the type of abilities required for solving mathematics items. Consequently, it is possible that item stem formats can affect the dimensional structure of mathematics assessments. This empirical study investigated the relationship between item stem format and the dimensionality of…

Karademir, Cigdem Aldan; Deveci, Ozge – Online Submission, 2019
Based on Confucius' saying "A word may change your mind, an emotion may change your life and a person may change you", our emotions affect our learning if we take life as a process of learning. Some of our learning on which we are successful and unsuccessful are student characteristics. Effective properties are one of the characteristics…
