Darnon, Céline; Fayol, Michel – European Journal of Psychology of Education, 2022
Socioeconomic status (SES) has been shown to be associated with children's arithmetic knowledge as early as kindergarten, which is an important issue, given that early numeracy knowledge and skills usually correlate to later academic achievement in arithmetic. In line with recent research, it is argued that the regular practice of exercises…

Sekeris, Elke; Verschaffel, Lieven; Luwel, Koen – European Journal of Psychology of Education, 2022
Computational estimation is seen as an important mathematical competence. Little is known, however, about the mathematical skills that are predictive of early computational estimation development. The current study longitudinally followed a group of about 350 children at four time points: second (K2, 4-year-olds) and third grades of kindergarten…

Mata, Lourdes; Monteiro, Vera; Peixoto, Francisco; Santos, Natalie Nóbrega; Sanches, Cristina; Gomes, Marta – European Journal of Psychology of Education, 2022
Learning maths is challenging for many primary school students, and teachers must understand students' learning and emotional processes specific to learning maths. The current research, grounded in control-value theory, focused on achievement emotions regarding maths. Primary school students (N = 71) were studied with the primary objective of…

Ecalle, Jean; Magnan, Annie; Auphan, Pauline; Gomes, Christophe; Cros, Laurent; Suchaut, Bruno – European Journal of Psychology of Education, 2022
The aim is to examine the impact of interventions on fluency and reading comprehension and how the effects of these interventions depend on the time that teachers spend with children with reading difficulties. Two groups were involved: an experimental group (n = 600) trained in code-related skills and a control group (n = 597) that received no…

Sekeris, Elke; Empsen, Michaël; Verschaffel, Lieven; Luwel, Koen – European Journal of Psychology of Education, 2021
The transition from informal to formal mathematics is an important episode in children's mathematical development. The current study investigated how young children's computational estimation performance and strategy use develops in this transitional period. The computational estimation performance of 350 children was assessed before the start of…

Bojorque, Gina; Gonzales, Neli; Wijns, Nore; Verschaffel, Lieven; Torbeyns, Joke – European Journal of Psychology of Education, 2021
Young children's early repeating patterning abilities are important foundations for their later mathematical development. Prior studies on young children's repeating patterning abilities have been conducted exclusively in developed countries differing in economic, societal, and educational characteristics from developing countries. In this study,…

Schirmbeck, Katharina; Rao, Nirmala; Wang, Rhoda; Richards, Ben; Chan, Stephanie W. Y.; Maehler, Claudia – European Journal of Psychology of Education, 2021
Previous research findings indicate that young children from East Asia outperform their counterparts from Europe and North America on executive function (EF) tasks. However, very few cross-national studies have focused on EF development during middle childhood. The current study assessed the EF performance of 170 children in grades 2 and 4 from…

Bigozzi, Lucia; Pezzica, Sara; Malagoli, Chiara – European Journal of Psychology of Education, 2021
Attention is an important, multifaceted cognitive domain that includes many key cognitive processes involved in learning. This study aimed to identify the predictive links between different components of attentional skills and core calculation skills development, using two standardized measures assessing calculation (AC-MT 6-11) and attention…

Tang, Elaine; Cheng, Rebecca Wing-yi; Fung, Wing-kai – European Journal of Psychology of Education, 2021
Previous research studies have demonstrated the link between parents' education and parental stress level. However, these studies have not taken parents' goal orientation into consideration. Based on the framework of goal orientation theory, we examined how parents' goals would interact with parents' education to affect perceived parental stress…

Langeloo, Annegien; Lara, Mayra Mascareño; Deunk, Marjolein I.; LoCasale-Crouch, Jennifer; Strijbos, Jan-Willem – European Journal of Psychology of Education, 2021
Early childhood education serves an increasing number of multilingual children, and teachers are challenged to create high-quality learning opportunities in the classroom for all children. The child's engagement and interactions with the teacher are important in this respect. The present study therefore examined how multilingualism relates to…

Papadopoulos, Timothy C.; Spanoudis, George; Ktisti, Christiana; Fella, Argyro – European Journal of Psychology of Education, 2021
We investigated the role of linguistic and cognitive processes in reading precocity from kindergarten to grade 2. A sample of 33 precocious readers was identified that did not differ on age, gender, and parental education to a control group of 259 typical readers. The effects of verbal ability were also controlled. All children were administered a…

Zhang, Haomin – European Journal of Psychology of Education, 2020
The present study aims to explore the reciprocal relationship between multidimensional lexical knowledge (reading vocabulary and morphological awareness) and reading comprehension among early elementary-age Chinese students. Using data from second-grade students (N = 288, M[subscript age]=7.8), the study drew upon a cross-lagged panel design to…

Rawlings, Anna Maria; Tapola, Anna; Niemivirta, Markku – European Journal of Psychology of Education, 2020
Students' goal strivings are known to be connected with important outcomes, both academically and with regard to individual well-being. In spite of their importance, our knowledge of factors contributing to their early development is rather limited. In this longitudinal study on school beginners (N = 212), we focused on the interrelationships…

Lavoie, Natalie; Morin, Marie-France; Coallier, Mélissa; Alamargot, Denis – European Journal of Psychology of Education, 2020
Learning to write involves the acquisition of several skills, not the least of which is handwriting. Indeed, studies in cognitive psychology have clearly demonstrated that it takes time to acquire this complex skill. The present study aimed to assess the effectiveness of an explicit multicomponent alphabet writing instruction program implemented…

Liu, Ying; Liu, Ru-De; Star, Jon R.; Wang, Jia; Tong, Huimin – European Journal of Psychology of Education, 2020
Recent research has shown that reducing the perceptual fluency of shape processing can be an effective means for overcoming the interference of the More A-More B intuitive rule among grade 3 students in a perimeter comparison task. From the perspective of cognitive load, the current study focused on the mechanism of perceptual fluency on…
