Moshman, David – Educational Psychology Review, 2018
"Metacognitive theories," an article Gregg Schraw and I published in "Educational Psychology Review" in 1995, has been cited in over a thousand scholarly publications. In this follow-up, dedicated to Gregg and written after his recent death, I provide a brief overview of our 1995 article and then reflect on it in four ways.…

Murphy, P. Karen; Firetto, Carla M.; Greene, Jeffrey A. – Educational Psychology Review, 2017
As reflected in the Next Generation Science Standards, concerns about the adequacy of education and career preparation in science, technology, engineering, and mathematics (STEM) fields have led to fundamental shifts in the focus of K-12 science education. Such shifts are also highlighted in many of the articles within this special issue, and the…

Bevilacqua, Andy – Educational Psychology Review, 2017
Recent upgrades to cognitive load theory suggest that evolutionary processes have shaped the way that working memory processes cultural and social information. According to evolutionarily educational psychologists, some forms of information are processed with lower working memory loads than other forms. The former are evolutionarily salient and…

Renkl, Alexander – Educational Psychology Review, 2013
Robinson et al. ("Educ Psychol Rev" 25:291-302, 2013) have suggested refraining from practice and policy recommendations in primary educational research articles, in particular because primary research journals are not the appropriate outlet for such recommendations, the evidence provided by one research article is usually not…

Robinson, Daniel H.; Levin, Joel R. – Educational Psychology Review, 2013
We appreciate the thoughtful reactions of our colleagues to the "no prescriptives, please" proposal of Robinson et al. (2013), as well as the opportunity to respond to them. For the most part, our colleagues seem to agree that a problem exists in terms of unwarranted recommendations for practice appearing too often in educational…

Alexander, Patricia A. – Educational Psychology Review, 2013
In response to the call by Robinson et al. (25(2): 24-28, 2013) for a moratorium on recommendations for practice and policy in articles published in primary research journals, Alexander forwards four counterarguments that allow for what are termed reasoned and reasonable speculations. Among those counterarguments are the claim that (a) seeking…

Harris, Karen R. – Educational Psychology Review, 2013
Robinson et al. ("Educ Psychol Rev" 25(2):291-302, 2013) offer a thoughtful and powerful argument for a policy change for primary educational research journals. This policy change would "disallow recommendations for practice" (p. 10) in primary educational research journals. They provided compelling examples of works in which…

Hunt, Earl – Educational Psychology Review, 2012
Demetriou, Spanoudis, and Mouyi have provided a comprehensive view of the relation between a model of the mind and the process of education. The model they propose is based on cognitive theories of mental action, rather than neuroscientific evidence. I argue here that that is the correct approach, for a model of the information processing…

Olson, David R. – Educational Psychology Review, 2012
As a summary of current advances in developmental psychology, the above article makes some useful contributions. As a contribution to educational policy and practice, it is limited if not a failure for two reasons. It fails to come to grips with the real demands of living classrooms, and second, it fails to grasp the actual subjective lives of the…

Yussen, Steven R. – Educational Psychology Review, 2011
The commentary considers when it is acceptable to make prescriptive statements in educational research articles. It begins with a consensus view, agreeing with the analysis offered by Marley and Levin (Educational Psychology Review, 2011), that experimental evidence is necessary. Other forms of evidence are considered (e.g., observational,…

Graesser, Arthur C.; Hu, Xiangen – Educational Psychology Review, 2011
Causal prescriptive statements are valued in the social sciences when there is the goal of helping people through interventions. The articles in this special issue cover different methods for testing causal prescriptive statements. This commentary identifies both virtues and liabilities of these different approaches. We argue that it is extremely…

Langer, Philip – Educational Psychology Review, 2009
This paper attempts to explore the diminishing contributions of psychology in teacher preparation programs. Using situated learning as a basis for discussion, I have argued that a student may take a course in educational psychology and then subsequently discover that subsequent preparation may ignore those psychological "caveats" regarding the…

K-12 teaching is a profession characterized by high levels of burnout and emotional exhaustion.

The purpose of this article is to review the literature on teacher burnout…
