King, Ronnel B.; McInerney, Dennis M.; Pitliya, Riddhi J. – Educational Psychology Review, 2018
Culture has mostly been neglected in mainstream educational psychology research. In this paper, we argued for the need to cultivate a cultural imagination and provided seven key recommendations for conducting culturally imaginative research. We explained how these recommendations could prove useful in avoiding the two types of errors that trap…

Reed, Stephen K. – Educational Psychology Review, 2018
The grounding of cognition in embodied actions has resulted in both theoretical formulations of encoding of information and instructional applications of these encodings. Actions on objects typically occur within matched formats: physical actions on physical objects, virtual actions on virtual objects, or mental actions on mental objects. Instead,…

Buckley, Jeffrey; Seery, Niall; Canty, Donal – Educational Psychology Review, 2018
An abundance of empirical evidence exists identifying a significant correlation between spatial ability and educational performance particularly in science, technology, engineering and mathematics (STEM). Despite this evidence, a causal explanation has yet to be identified. Pertinent research illustrates that spatial ability can be developed and…

Zamary, Amanda; Rawson, Katherine A. – Educational Psychology Review, 2018
Declarative concepts (abstract concepts denoted by key terms and definitions) are foundational content in many courses at most grade levels. The current research compared the relative effectiveness of provided examples to faded examples (a technique involving a transition from studying provided examples to completing partial examples to generating…

Chow, Jason C.; Ekholm, Eric – Educational Psychology Review, 2018
Meta-analyses are used to make educational decisions in policy and practice. Publication bias refers to the extent to which published literature is more likely to have statistically significant results and larger sample sizes than studies that do not make it through the publication process. The purpose of the present study is to estimate the…

Dore, Rebecca A.; Amendum, Steven J.; Golinkoff, Roberta Michnick; Hirsh-Pasek, Kathy – Educational Psychology Review, 2018
Theory of mind is the understanding that other people have mental states that drive their actions and that those mental states can be different from one's own. Without understanding theory of mind and being able to take others' perspectives, it could be difficult for children to read and understand narrative texts. This paper posits that…

Fiorella, Logan; Zhang, Qian – Educational Psychology Review, 2018
Learning by drawing can be an effective strategy for supporting science text comprehension. However, drawing can also be cognitively demanding and time consuming, and students may not create quality drawings without sufficient guidance. Furthermore, evidence for drawing is often based on comparisons to weak control conditions, such as students who…

Bisra, Kiran; Liu, Qing; Nesbit, John C.; Salimi, Farimah; Winne, Philip H. – Educational Psychology Review, 2018
Self-explanation is a process by which learners generate inferences about causal connections or conceptual relationships. A meta-analysis was conducted on research that investigated learning outcomes for participants who received self-explanation prompts while studying or solving problems. Our systematic search of relevant bibliographic databases…

Valcan, Debora S.; Davis, Helen; Pino-Pasternak, Deborah – Educational Psychology Review, 2018
Recent research indicates that parental behaviours may influence the development of executive functions (EFs) during early childhood, which are proposed to serve as domain-general building blocks for later classroom behaviour and academic achievement. However, questions remain about the strength of the association between parenting and child EFs,…

Rubenstein, Lisa DaVia; Callan, Gregory L.; Ridgley, Lisa M. – Educational Psychology Review, 2018
Creativity supports the advancement of all disciplines, providing both individual and societal benefits. Most individuals can demonstrate and improve their creativity; therefore, understanding the creative process is of particular interest to facilitate deliberate development of creative thinkers. Despite copious research of the creative process,…

Butterfuss, Reese; Kendeou, Panayiota – Educational Psychology Review, 2018
Our goal in this paper is to understand the extent to which, and under what conditions, executive functions (EFs) play a role in reading comprehension processes. We begin with a brief review of core components of EF (inhibition, shifting, and updating) and reading comprehension. We then discuss the status of EFs in process models of reading…

Puma, Sébastien; Matton, Nadine; Paubel, Pierre-Vincent; Tricot, André – Educational Psychology Review, 2018
For a long time, Cognitive Load Theory has considered working memory models as tools to advance research on learning. It has used working memory capacity models, where working memory is viewed as being composed of a discrete number of slots (i.e., chunks) that can be kept active. However, recent results have shown that for a fixed quantity of…

Jiang, Dayu; Kalyuga, Slava; Sweller, John – Educational Psychology Review, 2018
The expertise reversal effect occurs when instruction that is effective for novice learners is ineffective or even counterproductive for more expert learners. Four experiments designed to explore the expertise reversal effect in the field of teaching and learning foreign language listening skills were conducted. Three instructional formats…

Capin, Philip; Walker, Melodee A.; Vaughn, Sharon; Wanzek, Jeanne – Educational Psychology Review, 2018
Treatment fidelity data (descriptive and statistical) are critical to interpreting and generalizing outcomes of intervention research. Despite recommendations for treatment fidelity reporting from funding agencies and researchers, past syntheses have found treatment fidelity is frequently unreported (e.g., Swanson, "The Journal of Special…
