Kim, Young-Suk Grace; Wolters, Alissa; Mercado, Janet; Quinn, Jamie – Journal of Educational Psychology, 2022
We investigated the dimensionality and relations between L1 (a speaker's first language) and L2 (a┬áspeaker's second language) writing skills in narrative and informational genres and higher order cognitive skills--inference, perspective taking, and comprehension monitoring--for Spanish-English dual language learners in primary grades. Dimensions…

Kim, Young-Suk Grace; Graham, Steve – Journal of Educational Psychology, 2022
Within the context of the Direct and Indirect Effects Model of Writing (Kim & Park, 2019), we examined a dynamic relations hypothesis, which contends that the relations of component skills, including reading comprehension, to written composition vary as a function of dimensions of written composition. Specifically, we investigated: (1) whether…

Vaughn, Sharon; Swanson, Elizabeth; Fall, Anna-Maria; Roberts, Greg; Capin, Philip; Stevens, Elizabeth A.; Stewart, Alicia A. – Journal of Educational Psychology, 2022
This study reports the effects of a distributed professional development model emphasizing reading comprehension and vocabulary practices in social studies on the content knowledge, vocabulary, and reading comprehension outcomes of upper elementary students identified as English learners (ELs). Schools were randomly assigned to one of three…

Chan, Jenny Yun-Chen; Lee, Ji-Eun; Mason, Craig A.; Sawrey, Katharine; Ottmar, Erin – Journal of Educational Psychology, 2022
Understanding equivalence is fundamental to STEM disciplines, yet misunderstandings and misconceptions inhibit students from fully appreciating or leveraging the concept. Using the game-based algebraic notation system, From Here to There! (FH2T), students explore ideas of equivalence by dynamically transforming expressions or equations among…

Lovett, Maureen W.; Frijters, Jan C.; Steinbach, Karen A.; Sevcik, Rose A.; Morris, Robin D. – Journal of Educational Psychology, 2021
Adolescents with reading disability (RD) participated in a randomized controlled trial evaluating the efficacy of a multiple-component reading intervention with motivational components (PHAST). A total of 514 youth in 6th, 7th, and 8th grade formed instructional groups (4-8) that were randomly assigned to one of three conditions--one of two PHAST…

Rosenzweig, Emily Q.; Harackiewicz, Judith M.; Hecht, Cameron A.; Priniski, Stacy J.; Canning, Elizabeth A.; Tibbetts, Yoi; Asher, Michael W.; Hyde, Janet S. – Journal of Educational Psychology, 2021
This study examined whether students who left biomedical fields of study during college did so primarily because they became disenchanted with those fields or because they felt attracted to alternative fields of study. We identified 1,193 students intending to pursue biomedical fields of study early in college, collected data about their beliefs…

Mix, Kelly S.; Levine, Susan C.; Cheng, Yi-Ling; Stockton, Jerri DaSha; Bower, Corinne – Journal of Educational Psychology, 2021
A pretest-training-posttest design assessed whether training to improve spatial skills also improved mathematics performance in elementary-aged children. First grade students (mean age = 7 years, n = 134) and sixth grade students (mean age = 12 years, n = 124) completed training in 1 of 2 spatial skills--spatial visualization or form…

Rojas, Natalia M. – Journal of Educational Psychology, 2021
Person-oriented approaches can be used to identify how teachers may draw upon a combination of strategies when interacting with individual children. For nearly 1 third of children under the age of 8 who come from a household where a language other than English is spoken, it is crucial to identify patterns of teachers' use of discourse strategies…

Borman, Geoffrey D.; Choi, Yeseul; Hall, Garret J. – Journal of Educational Psychology, 2021
Stereotype threat has been shown to have deleterious impacts on the short- and long-term academic performance and psychological well-being of racial and ethnic minority students. Psychological variables related to this identity threat represent significant sources of achievement and attainment gaps relative to nonstereotyped Asian and white…

Little, Callie W.; Lonigan, Christopher J.; Phillips, Beth M. – Journal of Educational Psychology, 2021
This study investigated developmental trajectories of reading and math using latent-growth-curve analyses across multiple academic skills, measures, and multiple time periods within a single sample. Reading-related growth was marked by significant individual differences during the early elementary-school period and nonsignificant individual…

Kim, Young-Suk Grace; Quinn, Jamie M.; Petscher, Yaacov – Journal of Educational Psychology, 2021
We investigated the dimensionality of various indicators of reading prosody, and the relations of word reading and listening comprehension to the identified dimension(s) of reading prosody, using longitudinal data from Grades 1 to 3. A total of 371 English-speaking children were assessed on oral text reading, word reading, and listening…

Tian, Jing; Braithwaite, David W.; Siegler, Robert S. – Journal of Educational Psychology, 2021
This study investigated relations between the distribution of practice problems in textbooks and students' learning of decimal arithmetic. In Study 1, we analyzed the distributions of decimal arithmetic practice problems that appeared in 3 leading math textbook series in the United States. Similar imbalances in the relative frequencies of decimal…

Braithwaite, David W.; Siegler, Robert S. – Journal of Educational Psychology, 2021
Learning fractions is a critical step in children's mathematical development. However, many children struggle with learning fractions, especially fraction arithmetic. In this article, we propose a general framework for integrating understanding of individual fractions and fraction arithmetic, and we use the framework to generate interventions…

Nathan, Mitchell J.; Schenck, Kelsey E.; Vinsonhaler, Rebecca; Michaelis, Joseph E.; Swart, Michael I.; Walkington, Candace – Journal of Educational Psychology, 2021
Grounded and embodied cognition (GEC) serves as a framework to investigate mathematical reasoning for proof (reasoning that is logical, operative, and general), insight (gist), and intuition (snap judgment). Geometry is the branch of mathematics concerned with generalizable properties of shape and space. Mathematics experts (N = 46) and nonexperts…
