Supply, Anne-Sophie; Van Dooren, Wim; Onghena, Patrick – Mathematical Thinking and Learning: An International Journal, 2022
Previous research has shown that early numerical abilities are predictive of later mathematical achievement. In line with these previous studies, we investigated whether early numerical abilities are also associated with later probabilistic reasoning abilities. In the present study, we examined children's numerical abilities in the second grade of…

Vanderkerken, Lien; Heyvaert, Mieke; Onghena, Patrick; Maes, Bea – Journal of Intellectual Disabilities, 2021
Background: The realization of the family-centered approach (FCA) in home-based support (HBS) for families with children with an intellectual disability (ID) in Flanders was investigated, and parents' and family workers' perspectives were compared. The relation between parents' educational level, the family worker's education, and his/her…

Supply, Anne-Sophie; Van Dooren, Wim; Lem, Stephanie; Onghena, Patrick – Educational Studies in Mathematics, 2020
Comparing probabilities is a useful skill in life. Binary choice tasks are popular means in research on probabilistic reasoning. Falk, Yudilevich-Assouline, and Elstein ("Educational Studies in Mathematics," 81(2), 207-233 2012) noted that many of these tasks contain design flaws. We designed and evaluated an extended and improved binary…

Janssens, Liezelot; Smet, Kelly; Onghena, Patrick; Kyndt, Eva – International Journal of Training and Development, 2017
Informal workplace learning has become a prominent reality in the knowledge society of today. For this reason, developing appropriate learning conditions in order to enhance workplace learning is dominating organizational agendas. However, research that investigates the relationship between important learning conditions and learning outcomes…

Lem, Stephanie; Onghena, Patrick; Verschaffel, Lieven; Van Dooren, Wim – ZDM: The International Journal on Mathematics Education, 2017
Refutational text is one of the many instructional techniques that have been proposed to be used in education as a way to achieve effective learning. The aim of refutational text is to transform misconceptions into conceptions that are in line with current scientific concepts. This is done by explicitly stating a misconception, refuting it, and…

Lem, Stephanie; Onghena, Patrick; Verschaffel, Lieven; Van Dooren, Wim – European Journal of Psychology of Education, 2017
Graphicacy is an important skill in today's society; however, the interpretation of graphs proofs to be more difficult than it might seem. In this study, we focus on one specific misinterpretation, the area misinterpretation of box plots, which is caused by incorrect heuristic processing of salient features of the box plot. In this study, we tried…

Heyvaert, Mieke; Deleye, Maarten; Saenen, Lore; Van Dooren, Wim; Onghena, Patrick – International Journal of Research & Method in Education, 2018
When studying a complex research phenomenon, a mixed methods design allows to answer a broader set of research questions and to tap into different aspects of this phenomenon, compared to a monomethod design. This paper reports on how a sequential equal status design (QUAN ? QUAL) was used to examine students' reasoning processes when solving…

Fernández-Castilla, Belén; Declercq, Lies; Jamshidi, Laleh; Beretvas, S. Natasha; Onghena, Patrick; Van den Noortgate, Wim – Journal of Experimental Education, 2021
This study explores the performance of classical methods for detecting publication bias--namely, Egger's regression test, Funnel Plot test, Begg's Rank Correlation and Trim and Fill method--in meta-analysis of studies that report multiple effects. Publication bias, outcome reporting bias, and a combination of these were generated. Egger's…

Wijnhoven, Lieke A. M. W.; Engels, Rutger C. M. E.; Onghena, Patrick; Otten, Roy; Creemers, Daan H. M. – Journal of Autism and Developmental Disorders, 2022
The aim of the present study was to examine the additive effect of elements of cognitive behavioral therapy (CBT) on the video game Mindlight in decreasing anxiety of children with an autism spectrum disorder (ASD). A non-concurrent multiple baseline design with 8 children with ASD in the age of 8-12 was used. CBT did not have the hypothesized…

Boonen, Tinneke; Van Damme, Jan; Onghena, Patrick – School Effectiveness and School Improvement, 2014
The present study investigates the effects of teachers (background qualifications, attitudes and beliefs, and instructional practices) on student achievement in mathematics, reading, and spelling in 1st grade. Its theoretical framework and methodology are based on recent work by Palardy and Rumberger (2008). Data from the SiBO Project, a…

Saenen, Lore; Heyvaert, Mieke; Van Dooren, Wim; Onghena, Patrick – ZDM: The International Journal on Mathematics Education, 2015
The Monty Hall dilemma (MHD) is a counterintuitive probability problem in which participants often use misleading heuristics, such as the equiprobability bias. Finding the optimal solution to the MHD requires inhibition of these heuristics. In the current study, we investigated the relation between participants' equiprobability bias and their MHD…

Kyndt, Eva; Onghena, Patrick; Smet, Kelly; Dochy, Filip – International Journal for Educational and Vocational Guidance, 2014
The current study focuses on employees' learning intentions, or the willingness to undertake formal work-related learning. This cross-sectional survey study included a sample of 1,243 employees that are nested within 21 organisations. The results of the multilevel analysis show that self-directedness in career processes, time management,…

Lem, Stephanie; Baert, Kathy; Ceulemans, Eva; Onghena, Patrick; Verschaffel, Lieven; Van Dooren, Wim – Educational Psychology, 2017
The ability to interpret graphs is highly important in modern society, but has proven to be a challenge for many people. In this paper, two teaching methods were used to remediate one specific misinterpretation: the area misinterpretation of box plots. First, we used refutational text to explicitly state and invalidate the area misinterpretation…

Heyvaert, Mieke; Wendt, Oliver; Van den Noortgate, Wim; Onghena, Patrick – Journal of Special Education, 2015
Reporting standards and critical appraisal tools serve as beacons for researchers, reviewers, and research consumers. Parallel to existing guidelines for researchers to report and evaluate group-comparison studies, single-case experimental (SCE) researchers are in need of guidelines for reporting and evaluating SCE studies. A systematic search was…

Lem, Stephanie; Onghena, Patrick; Verschaffel, Lieven; Van Dooren, Wim – European Journal of Psychology of Education, 2014
Histograms are widely used, but recent studies have shown that they are not as easy to interpret as it might seem. In this article, we report on three studies on the interpretation of histograms in which we investigated, namely, (1) whether the misinterpretation by university students can be considered to be the result of heuristic reasoning, (2)…
