Wilkins, Jesse L. M. – Journal of Experimental Education, 2016
Quantitative literacy (QLT) represents an underlying higher-order construct that accounts for a person's willingness to engage in quantitative situations in everyday life. The purpose of this study is to retest the construct validity of a model of quantitative literacy (Wilkins, 2010). In this model, QLT represents a second-order factor that…

Muis, Krista R.; Trevors, Gregory; Duffy, Melissa; Ranellucci, John; Foy, Michael J. – Journal of Experimental Education, 2016
The purpose of this study was to empirically scrutinize Muis, Bendixen, and Haerle's (2006) Theory of Integrated Domains in Epistemology framework. Secondary, college, undergraduate, and graduate students completed self-reports designed to measure their domain-specific and domain-general epistemic beliefs for mathematics, psychology, and general…

Hong, Sehee; Yoo, Sung-Kyung; You, Sukkyung; Wu, Chih-Chun – Journal of Experimental Education, 2010
This study focused on comparing the longitudinal associations between two types of parental involvement (i.e., mathematics value and academic reinforcement) and high school students' mathematics achievement, using data from the Longitudinal Study of American Youth (LSAY). Results, based on multivariate autoregressive cross-lagged modeling,…

Carbonneau, Kira J.; Marley, Scott C. – Journal of Experimental Education, 2015
Educators often use manipulatives when teaching mathematics because manipulatives are assumed to promote learning. However, research indicates that instructional variables impact the effectiveness of manipulatives. In this article, the authors consider the relations between two instructional characteristics: (a) level of instructional guidance and…

Goetz, Thomas; Frenzel, Anne C.; Ludtke, Oliver; Hall, Nathan C. – Journal of Experimental Education, 2011
Previous research indicates that academic emotions are largely organized along domain-specific lines. In the present study (N = 1,687; Grades 8/11), the authors explored the domain specificity of academic emotions in terms of the moderating influence of having the same versus a different course instructor across domains. The authors evaluated…

Dresel, Markus; Haugwitz, Marion – Journal of Experimental Education, 2008
The authors designed a computer-based approach to enhance motivation and self-regulated learning. Participants of the quasi-experimental study were 6th-grade students (N = 151) who worked with a mathematics-learning software program during regular classroom instruction. In the 1st condition, students received attributional software-generated…

Chen, Peggy; Zimmerman, Barry – Journal of Experimental Education, 2007
In this cross-national study, the authors compared mathematics self-efficacy beliefs of American (n = 107) and Taiwanese (n = 188) middle-school students for level and calibration (accuracy and bias). Taiwanese students surpassed Americans in math achievement. American students evidenced slightly higher self-efficacy levels for easy math items but…

Osana, Helena P.; Przednowek, Katarzyna; Cooperman, Allyson; Adrien, Emmanuelle – Journal of Experimental Education, 2018
The effects of prior encodings of manipulatives (red and blue plastic chips) on children's ability to use them as representations of quantity were tested. First graders (N = 73) were assigned to four conditions in which the encoding of plastic chips was experimentally manipulated. All children then participated in an addition activity that relied…

Liu, Ru-De; Ding, Yi; Gao, Bing-Cheng; Zhang, Dake – Journal of Experimental Education, 2015
This study aimed to examine the relations among property strategies, working memory, and multiplication tasks with 101 Chinese fourth-grade students. Two multiplication property strategies (associative and distributive) were compared with no strategy and demonstrated differentiated effects on students' accuracy and reaction time. Associative…

Byun, Soo-yong; Irvin, Matthew J.; Bell, Bethany A. – Journal of Experimental Education, 2015
Using data from the Educational Longitudinal Study of 2002-2006, the authors investigated the effects of advanced math course taking on math achievement and college enrollment and how such effects varied by socioeconomic status and race/ethnicity. Results from propensity score matching and sensitivity analyses showed that advanced math course…

Harvey, Kristin Emilia; Suizzo, Marie-Anne; Jackson, Karen Moran – Journal of Experimental Education, 2016
The aims of this study were to investigate the effects of discrepancies between teachers' perceptions of students' motivation and students' reports of their motivation on math and English grades and to identify possible gender and ethnic differences. Participants included 215 low-income, ethnic-minority students and their teachers in academically…

Ngu, Bing Hiong; Yeung, Alexander Seeshing; Phan, Huy P.; Hong, Kian Sam; Usop, Hasbee – Journal of Experimental Education, 2018
In an experiment, secondary students from Australia and Malaysia (n = 130) were randomly assigned to one of three approaches (equation, unitary, unitary-pictorial) to learn how to solve challenging percentage-change problems. In line with the differential types of cognitive load associated with the three approaches, the unitary-approach group…

Chakraborti, S.; Gibbons, Jean D. – Journal of Experimental Education, 1992
The one-sided problem of comparing treatments with a standard on the basis of data available in the context of a one-way analysis of variance is examined, and the methodology of S. Chakraborti and J. D. Gibbons (1991) is extended to the case of unequal sample sizes. (SLD)

Huck, Schuyler W. – Journal of Experimental Education, 1972
This article has been written to point out why the analysis of covariance is a useful technique even when there is no difference between the groups being compared in terms of mean scores on the concomitant variable. (Author)

Zumbo, Bruno D.; And Others – Journal of Experimental Education, 1992
An error in an essential equation within the article by Williams and Zimmerman is corrected, and the algebraic inequalities are translated into questions a researcher can ask about simple or residualized difference scores. Williams and Zimmerman acknowledge the error and note that main conclusions are not affected. (SLD)
