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…

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…

Bowers, Jeffrey S. – Educational Psychology Review, 2020
There is a widespread consensus in the research community that reading instruction in English should first focus on teaching letter (grapheme) to sound (phoneme) correspondences rather than adopt meaning-based reading approaches such as whole language instruction. That is, initial reading instruction should emphasize systematic phonics. In this…

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…

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…

Pinquart, Martin; Ebeling, Markus – Educational Psychology Review, 2020
The present meta-analysis assessed concurrent and longitudinal associations between parental educational expectations and child achievement, and factors that mediate the effect of expectations on achievement. A systematic search in electronic databases identified 169 studies that were included in a random-effects meta-analysis. We found small to…

Chow, Jason C.; Wehby, Joseph H. – Educational Psychology Review, 2018
A growing body of evidence points to the common co-occurrence of language and behavioral difficulties in children. Primary studies often focus on this relation in children with identified deficits. However, it is unknown whether this relation holds across other children at risk or representative samples of children or over time. The purpose of…

Allen, Kelly; Kern, Margaret L.; Vella-Brodrick, Dianne; Hattie, John; Waters, Lea – Educational Psychology Review, 2018
Belonging is an essential aspect of psychological functioning. Schools offer unique opportunities to improve belonging for school-aged children. Research on school belonging, however, has been fragmented and diluted by inconsistency in the use of terminology. To resolve some of these inconsistencies, the current study uses meta-analysis of…

Schroeder, Noah L.; Nesbit, John C.; Anguiano, Carlos J.; Adesope, Olusola O. – Educational Psychology Review, 2018
A concept map is a node-link diagram in which each node represents a concept and each link identifies the relationship between the two concepts it connects. We investigated how using concept maps influences learning by synthesizing the results of 142 independent effect sizes (n = 11,814). A random-effects model meta-analysis revealed that learning…

Basma, Badriah; Savage, Robert – Educational Psychology Review, 2018
This systematic review explores the impact of teacher professional development (PD) on student reading achievement. The first part of the literature evaluates all available existing systematic reviews and meta-analyses of PD intervention studies. No quality reviews of PD and reading specifically (distinct from 'attainment') were found. There was a…

Kim, Nam Ju; Belland, Brian R.; Walker, Andrew E. – Educational Psychology Review, 2018
Computer-based scaffolding plays a pivotal role in improving students' higher-order skills in the context of problem-based learning for Science, Technology, Engineering and Mathematics (STEM) education. The effectiveness of computer-based scaffolding has been demonstrated through traditional meta-analyses. However, traditional meta-analyses suffer…

Iancu, Alina Eugenia; Rusu, Andrei; Maroiu, Cristina; Pacurar, Roxana; Maricu?oiu, Lauren?iu P. – Educational Psychology Review, 2018
We conducted a meta-analysis to investigate the effectiveness of interventions aimed at reducing teacher burnout. Online and reference list searches yielded 513 unique results, and the final sample contains 23 controlled trials (19 journal articles and 4 unpublished dissertations). More than two thirds of the studies had optimal quality, and the…

Okkinga, Mariska; van Steensel, Roel; van Gelderen, Amos J. S.; van Schooten, Erik; Sleegers, Peter J. C.; Arends, Lidia R. – Educational Psychology Review, 2018
Research has demonstrated that in controlled experiments in which small groups are being tutored by researchers, reading-strategy instruction is highly effective in fostering reading comprehension (Palincsar & Brown, "Cognition and Instruction," 1(2), 117-175, 1984). It is unclear, however, whether reading-strategy interventions are…

Wentzel, Kathryn R.; Jablansky, Sophie; Scalise, Nicole R. – Educational Psychology Review, 2018
Using meta-analytic techniques, we examined systematically the evidence linking friendship to academically related outcomes, asking: To what extent is friendship related to academic performance and to academically related cognitive skills? Based on 22 studies that yielded 81 effect sizes and 28 independent samples, we examined relations between…

Xie, Heping; Zhou, Zongkui; Liu, Qingqi – Educational Psychology Review, 2018
Recent research in a text-based educational context has demonstrated a seemingly paradoxical disfluency effect in reading, namely that learning with hard-to-read (disfluent) materials helps learners recall more details than learning with easy-to-read (fluent) materials. Many follow-up studies using a variety of participants, learning materials,…
