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…

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…

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…

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…

Rohrer, Doug; Dedrick, Robert F.; Hartwig, Marissa K. – Educational Psychology Review, 2020
A typical mathematics assignment consists of a block of problems devoted to the same topic, yet several classroom-based randomized controlled trials have found that students obtain higher test scores when most practice problems are mixed with different kinds of problems--a format known as interleaved practice. Interleaving prevents students from…

Rawson, Katherine A.; Dunlosky, John; Janes, Jessica L. – Educational Psychology Review, 2020
Successive relearning involves practicing to-be-learned content until a designated level of mastery is achieved in each of multiple practice sessions. As compared with practicing the content to the same criterion in a single session, successive relearning has been shown to dramatically boost students' retention of simple verbal materials. Does the…

Andrä, Christian; Mathias, Brian; Schwager, Anika; Macedonia, Manuela; von Kriegstein, Katharina – Educational Psychology Review, 2020
The integration of gestures and pictures into pedagogy has demonstrated potential for improving adults' learning of foreign language (L2) vocabulary. However, the relative benefits of gestures and pictures on children's L2 vocabulary learning have not been formally evaluated. In three experiments, we investigated the effects of gesture-based and…

Sundararajan, NarayanKripa; Adesope, Olusola – Educational Psychology Review, 2020
Studies have shown that learners exposed to interesting and irrelevant information, known as seductive details, do not perform as much as those who learned without seductive details. However, findings are mixed in terms of the degree to which seductive details hinder learning. Further research is also needed on how design features of learning…

Guo, Daibao; McTigue, Erin M.; Matthews, Sharon D.; Zimmer, Wendi – Educational Psychology Review, 2020
The current systematic review aimed to investigate "in what ways the incorporation of visual display tasks benefits K-12 students' content-area learning." After screening 1693 articles at abstract level and a systematic evaluation of methodological quality, we synthesized 44 articles for this review. The qualitative synthesis of the…

Ober, Teresa M.; Brooks, Patricia J.; Homer, Bruce D.; Rindskopf, David – Educational Psychology Review, 2020
Previous meta-analyses highlight the role of executive functions (EF), encompassing working memory updating, task-switching, and inhibitory control, in reading comprehension, but have not established their role in decoding. Decoding is defined as the use of orthographic patterns to access oral pronunciations. According to the dual route model,…

Choi, Heeseon; Lee, Hee Seung – Educational Psychology Review, 2020
Recent studies suggest that testing on prior material enhances subsequent learning of new material. Although such forward testing effect has received extensive empirical support, it is not yet clear how testing facilitates subsequent learning. One possible explanation suggests that interim testing informs learners about the format of an upcoming…

Avvisati, Francesco; Borgonovi, Francesca – Educational Psychology Review, 2020
We measure the effect of a single test practice on 15-year-old students' ability to solve mathematics problems using large, representative samples of the schooled population in 32 countries. We exploit three unique features of the 2012 administration of the Programme for International Student Assessment (PISA), a large-scale, low-stakes…

Kadir, Munirah Shaik; Yeung, Alexander Seeshing; Ryan, Richard M.; Forbes, Anne; Diallo, Thierno M. O. – Educational Psychology Review, 2020
The aim of the present study was to investigate the effects of an intervention on students' achievement and motivation. The intervention was in the form of an instructional approach named Dual-Approach Instruction since it was designed to facilitate both the cognitive and non-cognitive aspects of students' learning. The intervention effects were…

Kim, Nam Ju; Belland, Brian R.; Lefler, Mason; Andreasen, Lindi; Walker, Andrew; Axelrod, Daryl – Educational Psychology Review, 2020
Computer-based scaffolding (CBS) has been regarded as an effective way to help individual students complete and gain skill at completing complex tasks beyond their current ability level. Previous meta-analyses also have demonstrated that CBS for collaborative learning leads to positive cognitive outcomes in problem-centered instruction for STEM…

Wolgast, Anett; Tandler, Nancy; Harrison, Laura; Umlauft, Sören – Educational Psychology Review, 2020
Social perspective-taking is a multifaceted skill set, involving the disposition, motivation, and contextual attempts to consider and understand other individuals. It is essential for appropriate behavior in teaching contexts and social life that has been investigated across various research traditions. Because social perspective-taking enables…
