Mateos, Mar; Rijlaarsdam, Gert; Martín, Elena; Cuevas, Isabel; Van den Bergh, Huub; Solari, Mariana – Instructional Science: An International Journal of the Learning Sciences, 2020
This paper presents a secondary analysis of data collected during an intervention study in which students learnt to synthesise pairs of texts presenting opposite views on controversial issues. The original intervention study included two treatments and examined the effects of two instruction conditions when instructional materials and tasks were…

Schmidgall, Steffen P.; Scheiter, Katharina; Eitel, Alexander – Instructional Science: An International Journal of the Learning Sciences, 2020
Digital drawing can foster learning, but only if the drawing is of sufficient quality. Hence, the focus of the present study was to investigate whether and how two types of drawing support may foster drawing quality and, in turn, learning outcomes. To this end, participants (N = 156) were randomly assigned to one of four conditions, in which they…

Heirweg, Sofie; De Smul, Mona; Merchie, Emmelien; Devos, Geert; Van Keer, Hilde – Instructional Science: An International Journal of the Learning Sciences, 2020
The present study investigates primary school students' self-regulated learning (SRL) process by exploring the sequence in which SRL activities are conducted during learning. The aims of this study are twofold: investigating the presence of the theoretically hypothesized cyclical nature in students' SRL process, as well as potential differences…

Ortega-Tudela, Juana M.; Lechuga, M. Teresa; Gómez-Ariza, Carlos J. – Instructional Science: An International Journal of the Learning Sciences, 2019
Research has shown that retrieval activities, that is, actively recalling previously studied information, may substantially contribute to learning from complex educational materials, sometimes more so than other more popular techniques such as rereading and elaborative study. In this context, recent studies (Blunt and Karpicke, J Educ Psychol…

Zhang, Heyi; Whitebread, David – Instructional Science: An International Journal of the Learning Sciences, 2019
This study examined whether kindergarten children's psychological needs satisfaction would mediate the relationships between parental scaffolding and children's use of self-regulated learning (SRL) strategic behaviours. One hundred and thirty Chinese kindergarten children and their parents participated in the study. Parental scaffolding and…

Raaijmakers, Steven F.; Baars, Martine; Schaap, Lydia; Paas, Fred; van Merriënboer, Jeroen; van Gog, Tamara – Instructional Science: An International Journal of the Learning Sciences, 2018
Self-assessment and task-selection skills are crucial in self-regulated learning situations in which students can choose their own tasks. Prior research suggested that training with video modeling examples, in which another person (the model) demonstrates and explains the cyclical process of problem-solving task performance, self-assessment, and…

Fyfe, Emily R.; Rittle-Johnson, Bethany – Instructional Science: An International Journal of the Learning Sciences, 2017
Recent research highlights the potential benefits of practice without feedback on learner's strategy knowledge. However, most prior work has been conducted in one-on-one settings with short retention intervals. We compared the effects of mathematics practice with and without correct-answer feedback on immediate and 1-week delayed performance in a…

Singh, Anne-Marie; Marcus, Nadine; Ayres, Paul – Instructional Science: An International Journal of the Learning Sciences, 2017
Two experiments involving 125 grade-10 students learning about commerce investigated strategies to overcome the transient information effect caused by explanatory spoken text. The transient information effect occurs when learning is reduced as a result of information disappearing before the learner has time to adequately process it, or link it…

Bonner, Sarah M.; Somers, Jennifer A.; Rivera, Gwendelyn J.; Keiler, Leslie S. – Instructional Science: An International Journal of the Learning Sciences, 2017
We investigated perceptions about learning strategy use and instructional roles among a sample of high needs adolescents (n = 230) who acted as near-peer instructional facilitators. The sample was drawn from science and mathematics classes in nonselective public secondary schools in New York City. Students participated in an inschool intervention…

De Backer, Liesje; Van Keer, Hilde; Valcke, Martin – Instructional Science: An International Journal of the Learning Sciences, 2015
Although successful collaborative learning requires socially shared metacognitive regulation (SSMR) of the learning process among multiple students, empirical research on SSMR is limited. The present study contributes to the emerging research on SSMR by examining its correlation with both collaborative learners' content processing strategies and…

Leopold, Claudia; Doerner, Marcel; Leutner, Detlev; Dutke, Stephan – Instructional Science: An International Journal of the Learning Sciences, 2015
In two experiments, we compared effects of instructions that encourage learners to create referential connections between words and pictures with instructions that distract learners from creating referential connections. In Experiment 1, students read a scientific text under four conditions. In the text-picture condition, students read the…

Fyfe, Emily R.; DeCaro, Marci S.; Rittle-Johnson, Bethany – Instructional Science: An International Journal of the Learning Sciences, 2015
Feedback is generally considered a beneficial learning tool, and providing feedback is a recommended instructional practice. However, there are a variety of feedback types with little guidance on how to choose the most effective one. We examined individual differences in working memory capacity as a potential moderator of feedback type. Second-…

Große, Cornelia S. – Instructional Science: An International Journal of the Learning Sciences, 2014
It is commonly suggested to mathematics teachers to present learners different methods in order to solve one problem. This so-called "learning with multiple solution methods" is also recommended from a psychological point of view. However, existing research leaves many questions unanswered, particularly concerning the effects of…

Jairam, Dharma; Kiewra, Kenneth A.; Rogers-Kasson, Sarah; Patterson-Hazley, Melissa; Marxhausen, Kim – Instructional Science: An International Journal of the Learning Sciences, 2014
Although researchers have long investigated ways to improve study habits and raise achievement, few studies compare study strategy systems with one another. No study to date has compared the long popular SQ3R (Survey, Question, Read, Recite, Review) system with the more modern SOAR (Select, Organize, Associate, Regulate) system. This study…

Ginns, Paul; Martin, Andrew J.; Papworth, Brad – Instructional Science: An International Journal of the Learning Sciences, 2014
Biggs' 3P (Presage-Process-Product) model, a key framework in Student Learning Theory, provides a powerful means of understanding relations between students' perceptions of the teaching and learning environment, learning strategies, and learning outcomes. While influential in higher education, fewer tests of the model in secondary education…
