Xie, Fang; Zhang, Li; Chen, Xu; Xin, Ziqiang – Educational Psychology Review, 2020
The relationship between spatial and mathematical ability is controversial. Thus, the current study conducted a meta-analysis of 73 studies, with 263 effect sizes to explore the relationship between spatial and mathematical ability. Furthermore, we explored potential factors that moderate this relationship. Results showed that the relationship…

Lyle, Keith B.; Bego, Campbell R.; Hopkins, Robin F.; Hieb, Jeffrey L.; Ralston, Patricia A. S. – Educational Psychology Review, 2020
Retrieving information from memory increases the likelihood the information will be remembered later. The strategic use of retrieval to enhance memory is known as retrieval practice. Teachers can exert considerable control over students' retrieval practice, dictating when and how much students practice. Laboratory research has shown that retention…

Wang, Lu – Educational Psychology Review, 2020
In this review, findings from studies investigating gender differences in spatial ability, math anxiety, and math achievement, the relationship between spatial ability and math anxiety, between spatial ability and math achievement, and between math anxiety and math achievement are synthesized. As a result of this synthesis, a sequential mediation…

Sailer, Michael; Homner, Lisa – Educational Psychology Review, 2020
This meta-analysis was conducted to systematically synthesize research findings on effects of gamification on cognitive, motivational, and behavioral learning outcomes. Results from random effects models showed significant small effects of gamification on cognitive (g = 0.49, 95% CI [0.30, 0.69], k = 19, N = 1686), motivational (g = 0.36, 95% CI…

Roberts, Garrett J.; Cho, Eunsoo; Garwood, Justin D.; Goble, Grant H.; Robertson, Taryn; Hodges, Abby – Educational Psychology Review, 2020
This meta-analysis systematically identified reading intervention research for students with reading difficulties and problem behaviors in grades K-12 to determine the (a) impact of these reading interventions on reading outcomes and (b) extent to which reading outcomes varied based on student characteristics (e.g., grade, disability),…

Chernikova, Olga; Heitzmann, Nicole; Fink, Maximilian Christian; Timothy, Venance; Seidel, Tina; Fischer, Frank – Educational Psychology Review, 2020
Facilitating diagnostic competences is an important objective of higher education for many professions. This meta-analysis of 35 empirical studies builds on a conceptual framework and investigates the role of problem-solving, scaffolding, and context to foster diagnostic competences in learners with lower and higher professional knowledge bases. A…

Ashman, Greg; Kalyuga, Slava; Sweller, John – Educational Psychology Review, 2020
The concept of productive failure posits that a problem-solving phase prior to explicit instruction is more effective than explicit instruction followed by problem-solving. This prediction was tested with Year 5 primary school students learning about light energy efficiency. Two, fully randomised, controlled experiments were conducted. In the…

Parker, Philip D.; Van Zanden, Brooke; Marsh, Herbert W.; Owen, Katherine; Duineveld, Jasper J.; Noetel, Michael – Educational Psychology Review, 2020
Expectancy value theory is often evoked by educational psychologists to explain gender differences in Science, Technology, Engineering, and Mathematics (STEM) variables. Yet gender does not operate in isolation. Nor are gender effects likely to be context free. In the current meta-analysis, we explore gender differences in STEM-related expectancy…

Liu, Juan; Peng, Peng; Luo, Liang – Educational Psychology Review, 2020
Academic achievement is one of the most important indicators for assessing students' performance and educational attainment. Family socioeconomic status (SES) is the main factor influencing academic achievement, but the relation between SES and academic achievement may vary across different sociocultural contexts. China is the most populous…

Dargue, Nicole; Sweller, Naomi – Educational Psychology Review, 2020
Through providing an external support to speech, gesture observation may benefit a student's learning in a variety of areas, including narrative comprehension. Across two studies, we investigated factors that could moderate when gestures are most beneficial to narrative comprehension, including gesture type, task difficulty, and age, in order to…

Leppink, Jimmie; Pérez-Fuster, Patricia – Educational Psychology Review, 2019
Self-rated mental effort has been and continues to be the most widely used measure of cognitive load. This single-item measure is often used as a predictor variable in linear models for predicting performance or some other response variable. While an advantage of linear models is that they are fairly easy to understand, they fall short when the…

Mavilidi, Myrto F.; Zhong, Lijia – Educational Psychology Review, 2019
This manuscript presents an interview with John Sweller, Fred Paas, and Jeroen van Merrienboer about cognitive load theory. It presents the views of these main founders of the theory on the progress from the first major publication on the theory in 1998 (Sweller, Van Merrienboer, & Paas, "Educational Psychology Review," 10(3),…

Likourezos, Vicki; Kalyuga, Slava; Sweller, John – Educational Psychology Review, 2019
Based on cognitive load theory, this paper reports on two experiments investigating the variability effect that occurs when learners' exposure to highly variable tasks results in superior test performance. It was hypothesised that the effect was more likely to occur using high rather than low levels of guidance and testing more knowledgeable than…

Rey, Günter Daniel; Beege, Maik; Nebel, Steve; Wirzberger, Maria; Schmitt, Tobias H.; Schneider, Sascha – Educational Psychology Review, 2019
The segmenting effect states that people learn better when multimedia instructions are presented in (meaningful and coherent) learner-paced segments, rather than as continuous units. This meta-analysis contains 56 investigations including 88 pairwise comparisons and reveals a significant segmenting effect with small to medium effects for retention…

Sepp, Stoo; Howard, Steven J.; Tindall-Ford, Sharon; Agostinho, Shirley; Paas, Fred – Educational Psychology Review, 2019
Cognitive load theory (CLT) applies what is known about human cognitive architecture to the study of learning and instruction, to generate insights into the characteristics and conditions of effective instruction and learning. Recent developments in CLT suggest that the human motor system plays an important role in cognition and learning; however,…
