Waldron, Sam; Wood, Clare; Kemp, Nenagh – Journal of Research in Reading, 2017
An investigation into the impact of predictive text use upon the literacy skills of primary school, secondary school and university cohorts was conducted over the course of a year. No differences in use of text abbreviations ("textisms") were found between predictive text users and nonusers. However, secondary school children who used…

Pereira, Mariana R.; Barbosa, Fernando; de Haan, Michelle; Ferreira-Santos, Fernando – Developmental Psychology, 2019
In the present work, we explore the development of processing of emotional facial configurations under a predictive processing (or predictive coding) framework. Predictive processing provides a new approach to brain function that has been used to explain a wide range of processes, from perception to socioemotional processing. The explanatory power…

Gardner, Josh; Brooks, Christopher – Journal of Learning Analytics, 2018
Model evaluation -- the process of making inferences about the performance of predictive models -- is a critical component of predictive modelling research in learning analytics. We survey the state of the practice with respect to model evaluation in learning analytics, which overwhelmingly uses only naïve methods for model evaluation or…

Waddington, David – College Quarterly, 2019
This study investigates the alignment of a predictive model created to categorize first semester students by risk level of not completing their studies with the faculty identification of students displaying risk behaviours of the same cohort at Mohawk College. Data created by Finnie et al. (2017), is compared to a sample of first semester students…

Santolin, Chiara; Saffran, Jenny R. – Journal of Cognition and Development, 2019
Infants acquiring their native language are adept at discovering grammatical patterns. However, it remains unknown whether these learning abilities are limited to language, or available more generally for sequenced input. The current study is a conceptual replication of a prior language study, and was designed to ask whether infants can track…

Giani, Matt S.; Walling, David – Journal of College Access, 2020
A sizable number of low-income high school graduates enroll in colleges less selective than their academic qualifications would allow or forgo postsecondary altogether despite being college-ready. One potential cause of this "undermatching" is that some students have limited access to information about their college options. We…

Baker, Ryan S.; Berning, Andrew W.; Gowda, Sujith M.; Zhang, Shizhu; Hawn, Aaron – Journal of Education for Students Placed at Risk, 2020
Dropout remains a persistent challenge within high school education. In this paper, we present a case study on automatically detecting whether a student is at-risk of dropout within a diverse school district in Texas. We predict whether a student will drop out in a future school year from data on students' discipline, attendance, course-taking,…

Barnard-Brak, Lucy; Stevens, Tara; Yang, Zhanxia – Infants and Young Children, 2020
The current study examined 2 sets of variables associated with parents prematurely exiting early intervention services for their child. The first set consisted of the variables predictive of premature parent withdrawal, and the second set consisted of variables predictive of a parent and child being dismissed from early intervention services…

McCarthy, Richard; Ceccucci, Wendy; McCarthy, Mary; Halawi, Leila – Information Systems Education Journal, 2019
Automobile Insurance fraud costs the insurance industry billions of dollars annually. This case study addresses claim fraud based on data extracted from Alpha Insurance's automobile claim database. Students are provided the business problem and data sets. Initially, the students are required to develop their hypotheses and analyze the data. This…

Larson, Caroline; Kaplan, David; Kaushanskaya, Margarita; Weismer, Susan Ellis – Journal of Speech, Language, and Hearing Research, 2020
Background: This study examined predictive relationships between two indices of language--receptive vocabulary and morphological comprehension--and inhibition in children with specific language impairment (SLI) and typically developing (TD) children. Methods: Participants included 30 children with SLI and 41 TD age-matched peers (8-12 years). At…

Park, Enoch; Martin, Florence; Lambert, Richard – Quarterly Review of Distance Education, 2019
The purpose of this study was to identify the potential factors that could predict college students' success in a large-size undergraduate hybrid learning course. Predictive values of students' demographic and academic background variables were examined to establish standardized models of contribution toward final grades. Next, patterns of student…

Ingle, Karen M. – ProQuest LLC, 2017
Student teaching provides the final pre-service clinical teaching experience of an initial teacher preparation program. Research that specifically studies the pre-service student teacher and predictive factors of student teaching is limited. Identifying predictive factors that contribute to the success of student interns' student teaching…

Fielding-Gebhardt, Heather; Warren, Steven F. – American Journal on Intellectual and Developmental Disabilities, 2019
The predictive ability of early consonant inventory and intentional communication on later expressive language was examined in 36 boys with fragile X syndrome (FXS). Autism symptom severity was included as a potential moderator. Participants were visited in their homes twice over a 6-year period, and mother-child interactions were videotaped,…

Mastrantuono, Eliana; Saldaña, David; Rodríguez-Ortiz, Isabel R. – Discourse Processes: A Multidisciplinary Journal, 2019
We tested the capability of deaf adolescents, including a group of users of cochlear implants, to generate inferences during spoken language comprehension and whether they benefited from the use of sign-supported speech (SSS). Stimuli consisted of 24 short video-recorded texts in spoken language and in SSS. Participants responded to literal and…

Geurten, Marie; Lloyd, Marianne; Willems, Sylvie – Child Development, 2017
Previous research has suggested that fluency does not influence memory decisions until ages 7-8. In two experiments (n = 96 and n = 64, respectively), children, aged 4, 6, and 8 years (Experiments 1 and 2), and adults (Experiment 2) studied a list of pictures. Participants completed a recognition test during which each study item was preceded by a…
