Knowledge about one's own cognitive processes is the basis for the monitoring and regulation of learning processes for effective reading comprehension. Taking verbal cognitive ability into account, the present study aimed to examine the developmental trajectories of reading comprehension and declarative metacognitive knowledge and their…

Vidmar, Maša; Niklas, Frank; Schneider, Wolfgang; Hasselhorn, Marcus – European Journal of Psychology of Education, 2017
The foundation of school success is laid early in children's lives. Consequently, assessments of academic precursors may help to identify children in need of additional support. Such early assessments could also be interesting from an international perspective when educational systems are compared. This analysis is used to inform on the…

Schwenck, Christina; Dummert, Friederike; Endlich, Darius; Schneider, Wolfgang – European Journal of Psychology of Education, 2015
Several cognitive deficits associated with reading and mathematics problems have been identified. However, only few studies assessed the impact of these variables in children with combined problems in reading and arithmetics, and none of these studies included children with low IQ. This longitudinal study was designed to assess the impact of…

Schmiedeler, Sandra; Niklas, Frank; Schneider, Wolfgang – European Journal of Psychology of Education, 2014
The concept of "Home Learning Environment" (HLE) covers activities in a family providing intellectual stimulation for a child, such as reading to him or her or visiting libraries. Numerous studies have shown an association between HLE and children's cognitive development. In this longitudinal study, we focus on HLE as a predictor for…

Niklas, Frank; Schneider, Wolfgang – European Journal of Psychology of Education, 2014
Mathematical competencies are important not only for academic achievement at school but also for professional success later in life. Although we know a lot about the impact of "Home Literacy Environment" on the development of early linguistic competencies, research on "Home Numeracy Environment" (HNE) and the assessment of its…

Neuenhaus, Nora; Artelt, Cordula; Lingel, Klaus; Schneider, Wolfgang – European Journal of Psychology of Education, 2011
The purpose of the present study was to investigate the structure of metacognitive knowledge in fifth grade pupils and its relation to school achievement. Since the structure of metacognitive knowledge is controversially discussed with little empirical evidence for either its domain specificity or its domain transferability, the debate remains…

Bullying is widespread in European schools, despite multiple intervention strategies having been proposed over the years. The present study investigates the effects of a novel virtual learning strategy ("FearNot!") to tackle bullying in both UK and German samples. The approach is intended primarily for victims to increase their coping…

Schneider, Wolfgang; Wolke, Dieter; Schlagmuller, Matthias; Meyer, Renate – European Journal of Psychology of Education, 2004
Individual differences in academic success were investigated in a geographically defined whole-population sample of very preterm children with a gestational age of less than 32 weeks or a birth weight of less than 1500 gm. The sample consisted of 264 very preterm children (75.6% of German-speaking survivors) and 264 controls matched for gender,…

Roeschl-Heils, Annette; Schneider, Wolfgang; van Kraayenoord, Christina E. – European Journal of Psychology of Education, 2003
This follow-up study to van Kraayenoord and Schneider (1999) examined the performance in reading, metacognition and motivation related to reading of students in Grades 7 and 8. Results showed significant correlations between all of the variables. A multivariate analysis of variance showed that "good" and "poor" readers differed…

Describes a German longitudinal study of the relationship among verbal ability, memory capacity, phonological awareness, and reading performance. Reports that the relationship between memory capacity and phonological awareness remained stable over time. Concludes that memory capacity predicted phonological awareness task performance, phonological…

Artelt, Cordula; Schiefele, Ulrich; Schneider, Wolfgang – European Journal of Psychology of Education, 2001
Presents a study in which two reading literacy/text comprehension (on-line comprehension versus memory-based comprehension) tests were administered to fifteen year old students (n=6104) from all German states and school types. Explains that on-line comprehension was affected by metacognitive knowledge, decoding speed, and the number of books at…
