M.; Dionne, Ginette; Brendgen, Mara; Vitaro, Frank; Tremblay, Richard E.; Boivin, Michel; Kovas, Yulia – British Journal of Educational Psychology, 2019
Background: The number line task assesses the ability to estimate numerical magnitudes. People vary greatly in this ability, and this variability has been previously associated with mathematical skills. However, the sources of individual differences in number line estimation and its association with mathematics are not fully understood. Aims: This…

Pinto, Cynthia; Baines, Ed; Bakopoulou, Ioanna – British Journal of Educational Psychology, 2019
Background and aims: Children with special educational needs (SEN) are generally less accepted by peers in school and have fewer friendships than those without SEN. However, little research has examined peer relations across multiple dimensions, relative to severity of need and in relation to classroom experiences and individual behavioural…

Canivez, Gary L.; Watkins, Marley W.; McGill, Ryan J. – British Journal of Educational Psychology, 2019
Background: There is inadequate information regarding the factor structure of the Wechsler Intelligence Scale for Children -- Fifth UK Edition (WISC-V[superscript UK]; Wechsler, 2016a, Wechsler Intelligence Scale for Children-Fifth UK Edition, Harcourt Assessment, London, UK) to guide interpretation. Aims and methods: The WISC-V[superscript UK]…

Moè, Angelica; Katz, Idit; Alesi, Marianna – British Journal of Educational Psychology, 2018
Background and aims: Based on the principles of scaffolding for motivation and on the assumptions of self-determination theory, two studies aimed to assess the role played by perceived parental autonomy-supportive scaffolding on child homework autonomous motivation, self-efficacy, affect, and engagement. Samples and results: The results of Study…

Tzuriel, David; Shomron, Vered – British Journal of Educational Psychology, 2018
Background: The theoretical framework of the current study is based on mediated learning experience (MLE) theory, which is similar to the scaffolding concept. The main question of the current study was to what extent mother-child MLE strategies affect psychological resilience and cognitive modifiability of boys with learning disability (LD).…

Badger, Julia R.; Mellanby, Jane – British Journal of Educational Psychology, 2018
Background: School attainment tests and Cognitive Abilities Tests are used in the United Kingdom to set targets for educational outcome. Whilst these are good predictors, they depend not only on basic ability but also on learnt knowledge and skills, such as reading. Method and Aims: VESPARCH is an online group test of verbal and spatial reasoning,…

Hodgkiss, Alex; Gilligan, Katie A.; Tolmie, Andrew K.; Thomas, Michael S. C.; Farran, Emily K. – British Journal of Educational Psychology, 2018
Background: Prior longitudinal and correlational research with adults and adolescents indicates that spatial ability is a predictor of science learning and achievement. However, there is little research to date with primary-school aged children that addresses this relationship. Understanding this association has the potential to inform curriculum…

Canivez, Gary L.; Watkins, Marley W.; Good, Rebecca; James, Kate; James, Trevor – British Journal of Educational Psychology, 2017
Background: Irish educational psychologists frequently use the Wechsler Intelligence Scale for Children-Fourth UK Edition (WISC-IV[superscript UK]; Wechsler, 2004, Wechsler Intelligence Scale for Children-Fourth UK Edition, London, UK, Harcourt Assessment) in clinical assessments of children with learning difficulties. Unfortunately, reliability…

Brooker, Alice; Franklin, Anna – British Journal of Educational Psychology, 2016
Background: The presence of red appears to hamper adults' cognitive performance relative to other colours (see Elliot & Maier, 2014, "Ann. Rev. Psychol." 65, 95). Aims and sample: Here, we investigate whether colour affects cognitive performance in 8- and 9-year-olds. Method: Children completed a battery of tasks once in the presence…

Messer, David; Henry, Lucy A.; Nash, Gilly – British Journal of Educational Psychology, 2016
Background: Few investigations have examined the relationship between a comprehensive range of executive functioning (EF) abilities and reading. Aims: Our investigation identified components of EF that independently predicted single word reading, and determined whether their predictive role remained when additional variables were included in the…

Tolmie, Andrew K.; Ghazali, Zayba; Morris, Suzanne – British Journal of Educational Psychology, 2016
Background: Research has identified the core skills that predict success during primary school in reading and arithmetic, and this knowledge increasingly informs teaching. However, there has been no comparable work that pinpoints the core skills that underlie success in science. Aims and method: The present paper attempts to redress this by…
