Van Steenbrugge, H.; Lesage, E.; Valcke, M.; Desoete, A. – Journal of Curriculum Studies, 2014
This research analyses preservice teachers' knowledge of fractions. Fractions are notoriously difficult for students to learn and for teachers to teach. Previous studies suggest that student learning of fractions may be limited by teacher understanding of fractions. If so, teacher education has a key role in solving the problem. We first reviewed…

Titeca, Daisy; Roeyers, Herbert; Ceulemans, Annelies; Desoete, Annemie – Early Education and Development, 2015
Research Findings: To date, studies comparing the mathematical abilities of children with autism spectrum disorder (ASD) and typically developing children are scarce, and results remain inconclusive. In general, studies on this topic focus on mathematical abilities learned from elementary school onward, with little attention for possible…

Honoré, Nastasya; Noël, Marie-Pascale – Journal of Education and Training Studies, 2017
Working memory capacities are associated with mathematical development. Many studies have tried to improve working memory abilities through training. Furthermore, the central executive has been shown to be the component of working memory, which is the most strongly related to numerical and arithmetical skills. Therefore, we developed a training…

Powell, Justin J. W.; Dusdal, Jennifer – Minerva: A Review of Science, Learning and Policy, 2017
Charting significant growth in science production over the 20th century in four European Union member states, this neo-institutional analysis describes the development and current state of universities and research institutes that bolster Europe's position as a key region in global science. On-going internationalization and Europeanization of…

Sasanguie, Delphine; De Smedt, Bert; Defever, Emmy; Reynvoet, Bert – British Journal of Developmental Psychology, 2012
Various measures have been used to investigate number processing in children, including a number comparison or a number line estimation task. The present study aimed to examine whether and to which extent these different measures of number representation are related to performance on a curriculum-based standardized mathematics achievement test in…

De Weerdt, Frauke; Desoete, Annemie; Roeyers, Herbert – Journal of Learning Disabilities, 2013
Elementary school children with reading disabilities (RD; "n" = 17), mathematical disabilities (MD; "n" = 22), or combined reading and mathematical disabilities (RD+MD; "n" = 28) were compared to average achieving (AA; "n" = 45) peers on working memory measures. On all working memory components, 2 (RD vs. no…

Kucherenko, Petr A.; Sangadzhiev, Badma.V.; Velibekov, Murad C. – International Journal of Environmental and Science Education, 2016
The relevance of the study of the legal nature and functions of the referendum is conditioned by the increasing dynamics of development of direct democracy in the developed countries and the needs to legalize it in constitutional and legal norms to ensure stability in society. The purpose of this paper is to define the legal nature of the…

Lem, Stephanie; Onghana, Patrick; Verschaffel, Lieven; Van Dooren, Wim – Statistics Education Research Journal, 2013
Data distributions can be represented using different external representations, such as histograms and boxplots. Although the role of external representations has been extensively studied in mathematics, this is less the case in statistics. This study helps to fill this gap by systematically varying the representation that accompanies a task…

Broek, Simon; Hake, Barry J. – International Journal of Lifelong Education, 2012
This article contains an analysis of policies aimed at increasing the participation of adults in higher education (HE) in seven countries (NL, DK, SE, UK, BE Flanders, DE and the state of California in the USA). In order to maintain their economic competitiveness, many countries have developed policies to increase the participation of adults in…

Tatsuoka, Kikumi K.; Corter, James E.; Tatsuoka, Curtis – American Educational Research Journal, 2004
This study used a diagnostic testing approach to compare the mathematics achievement of eighth-grade students across a sample of 20 countries, analyzing data from the Third International Math and Science Study-Revised (TIMSS-R, 1999). Using the rule-space method, student mastery was measured on 23 specific content knowledge and processing…

Pustjens, Heidi; Van de gaer, Eva; Van Damme, Jan; Onghena, Patrick; Van Landeghem, Georges – British Educational Research Journal, 2007
A considerable body of previous research has demonstrated that differences between schools and classes have an impact on students' learning and acquisition of skills. It is not yet clear, however, whether the effects persist in the longer term. The present study examines the effect of primary schools and classes on language and mathematics…

Green, Andy; Pensiero, Nicola – British Educational Research Journal, 2016
Research tells us much about the effects of primary and lower-secondary schooling on skills inequality, but we know less about the impact of the next stage of education. This article uses a differences-in-differences analysis of data on literacy and numeracy skills in PISA 2000 and SAS 2011/12 to assess the contribution of upper-secondary…

Rousselle, Laurence; Noel, Marie-Pascale – Journal of Learning Disabilities, 2008
The adaptive use of approximate calculation was examined using a verification task with 18 third graders with mathematics learning disabilities, 22 typically achieving third graders, and 21 typically achieving second graders. Participants were asked to make true-false decisions on simple and complex addition problems while the distance between the…

Degrande, Tine; Verschaffel, Lieven; Van Dooren, Wim – Mathematical Thinking and Learning: An International Journal, 2017
In contrast to previous studies on Spontaneous Focusing on Quantitative Relations (SFOR), the present study investigated not only the "extent" to which children focus on (multiplicative) quantitative relations, but also the "nature" of children's quantitative focus (i.e., the types of quantitative relations that children focus…
