Chittle, Laura; Horton, Sean; Dixon, Jess C. – High Ability Studies, 2018
Relative age effects (RAEs) explain the (dis)advantages individuals experience as a result of when they are born relative to a pre-determined cut-off date. Within an interuniversity setting, academic timing (AT) may moderate the RAE pattern due to some student-athletes having eligibility years that do not correspond with their birth years. The…

Grassinger, Robert; Scheunpflug, Annette; Zeinz, Horst; Dresel, Markus – High Ability Studies, 2018
Learning from errors seems to be crucial for talent development, but there is evidence that students learn little from their errors during school instruction. This work addressed the interplay of different adaptive reactions to errors (affective-motivational adaptive and action-related adaptive reactions), a positive error climate in the learning…

Kozbelt, Aaron – High Ability Studies, 2017
In this paper, I review the empirical evidence for advantages in visual perception and attention that may be associated with high levels of drawing skill. Particularly in the last few decades, some substantial progress on these issues has been made, although frequently with inconsistent or even contradictory results across studies, some…
