Lepola, Janne; Hannula-Sormunen, Minna – Educational Studies in Mathematics, 2019
In this 3-year longitudinal study, we examined the interplay of children's motivational orientations, spontaneous focusing on numerosity (SFON) and number sequence and arithmetical skills from kindergarten (at age 6) to grade 1 (at age 7). We also examined the direct and indirect contributions of motivation and SFON to the acquisition of…

Kiss, Allyson J.; Nelson, Gena; Christ, Theodore J. – Learning Disability Quarterly, 2019
Despite the vast research on the early predictors of mathematics achievement, little research has investigated the predictors of various domains of mathematics (e.g., geometry, statistics). The purpose of the present study was to examine the predictive relation between first-grade early numeracy and computation skills and third-grade mathematics…

Conoyer, Sarah J.; Foegen, Anne; Lembke, Erica S. – Remedial and Special Education, 2016
Two studies using similar methods in two states investigated the long-term predictive utility of two single-skill early numeracy Curriculum Based Measures (CBMs) and the degree to which they can adequately predict high-stakes test scores. Data were drawn from kindergarten and first-grade students. State standardized assessment data from the…

Clarke, Ben; Strand Cary, Mari G.; Shanley, Lina; Sutherland, Marah – Grantee Submission, 2018
This manuscript presents the results from a study to investigate the technical characteristics of two versions of a number line assessment (NLA 0-20 and NLA 0-100). The sample consisted of 60 kindergarten and 46 first grade students. Both number line versions had sufficient alternate form and test-retest reliability. The NLA 0-20 had low and the…

Zhang, Xiao; Koponen, Tuire; Räsänen, Pekka; Aunola, Kaisa; Lerkkanen, Marja-Kristiina; Nurmi, Jari-Erik – Child Development, 2014
Utilizing a longitudinal sample of Finnish children (ages 6-10), two studies examined how early linguistic (spoken vs. written) and spatial skills predict later development of arithmetic, and whether counting sequence knowledge mediates these associations. In Study 1 (N = 1,880), letter knowledge and spatial visualization, measured in…

Salaschek, Martin; Souvignier, Elmar – Frontline Learning Research, 2013
The purpose of our research was to examine a web-based tool for mathematics progress monitoring in first grade. The newly developed assessment tool uses several robust indicators and curriculum-based measures forming three competences (Basic Precursors, Advanced Precursors, and Computation) to determine comprehensive early numeracy skills in…

Vukovic, Rose K. – Exceptional Children, 2012
An overarching question guided this study:What is mathematics difficulty (MD) independent of reading difficulty (RD)? The sample included 203 children whom the researchers followed from kindergarten to third grade. The researchers used latent growth modeling to investigate the relationship between MD and measures of working memory, short-term…

Bugden, Stephanie; Ansari, Daniel – Cognition, 2011
In recent years, there has been an increasing focus on the role played by basic numerical magnitude processing in the typical and atypical development of mathematical skills. In this context, tasks measuring both the intentional and automatic processing of numerical magnitude have been employed to characterize how children's representation and…

Methe, Scott A.; Begeny, John C.; Leary, Lemontrel L. – Assessment for Effective Intervention, 2011
This research was conducted to evaluate the technical properties of a set of early numeracy CBM tests that were designed to operationalize early numeric concepts. Data were collected over the course of a school year from 113 kindergarten and first-grade children using nine separate tests with three alternative forms. In addition, test-retest…

van Zyl, Erna – South African Journal of Childhood Education, 2011
The research reported in this article was conducted from a socio-environmental perspective on learners' school readiness when entering Grade 1, as well as their school performance in Grade 1 and again in Grade 4. The relation between school readiness and performance in Home Language and Numeracy in Grade 1, and performance in the same learning…

Jordan, Nancy C.; Glutting, Joseph; Ramineni, Chaitanya – Learning and Individual Differences, 2010
Children's symbolic number sense was examined at the beginning of first grade with a short screen of competencies related to counting, number knowledge, and arithmetic operations. Conventional mathematics achievement was then assessed at the end of both first and third grades. Controlling for age and cognitive abilities (i.e., language, spatial,…
