Resnick, Ilyse; Davatzes, Alexandra; Newcombe, Nora S.; Shipley, Thomas F. – Educational Psychology Review, 2017
Many scientific theories and discoveries involve reasoning about extreme scales, removed from human experience, such as time in geology and size in nanoscience. Thus, understanding scale is central to science, technology, engineering, and mathematics. Unfortunately, novices have trouble understanding and comparing sizes of unfamiliar large and…

Shankland, Rébecca; Rosset, Evelyn – Educational Psychology Review, 2017
Research studies looking into the effects of positive psychology interventions (PPIs) implemented in classrooms have yielded promising results, not only in terms of student well-being but also in terms of academic outcomes, school climate, and teacher well-being. However, a number of PPIs require relatively high levels of commitment from school…

Chen, Ouhao; Kalyuga, Slava; Sweller, John – Educational Psychology Review, 2017
Within the framework of cognitive load theory, the element interactivity and the expertise reversal effects usually are not treated as closely related effects. We argue that the two effects may be intertwined with the expertise reversal effect constituting a particular example of the element interactivity effect. Specifically, the element…

Currently, research with one learning strategy model rarely leads to developments in others, as each group of researchers works in…

In the last special issue devoted to this topic, Pintrich ("Educ Psychol Rev" 16:385-407, 2004) provided an in-depth critique of his conceptual framework on self-regulated learning (SRL), comparing and contrasting it to Biggs' student approaches to learning (SAL) perspective. Since then, there have been a number of advances in the study…

Kubina, Richard M., Jr.; Kostewicz, Douglas E.; Brennan, Kaitlyn M.; King, Seth A. – Educational Psychology Review, 2017
Visual displays such as graphs have played an instrumental role in psychology. One discipline relies almost exclusively on graphs in both applied and basic settings, behavior analysis. The most common graphic used in behavior analysis falls under the category of time series. The line graph represents the most frequently used display for visual…

Renkl, Alexander; Scheiter, Katharina – Educational Psychology Review, 2017
Visual displays are very frequently used in learning materials. Although visual displays have great potential to foster learning, they also pose substantial demands on learners so that the actual learning outcomes are often disappointing. In this article, we pursue three main goals. First, we identify the main difficulties that learners have when…

McCrudden, Matthew T.; Rapp, David N. – Educational Psychology Review, 2017
We regularly consult and construct visual displays that are intended to communicate important information. The power of these displays and the instructional messages we attempt to comprehend when using them emerge from the information included in the display and by their spatial arrangement. In this article, we identify common types of visual…

Vogel, Freydis; Wecker, Christof; Kollar, Ingo; Fischer, Frank – Educational Psychology Review, 2017
Scripts for computer-supported collaborative learning (CSCL) offer socio-cognitive scaffolding for learners to engage in collaborative activities that are considered beneficial for learning. Yet, CSCL scripts are often criticized for hampering naturally emerging collaboration. Research on the effectiveness of CSCL scripts has shown divergent…
