Chue, Kah Loong – Journal of Cognitive Education and Psychology, 2020
A conventional view in education is the belief that expending more effort in mathematics will lead directly to a higher academic achievement. Whilst no one would argue that effort is unnecessary, the link between effort and academic achievement needs to be examined further. In particular, there may be a possibility of mediator variables in this…

Comblain, Annick; Schmetz, Coraline – Journal of Cognitive Education and Psychology, 2020
Effective communication requires an understanding of the interlocutor's perspective. Being able to infer someone else's knowledge about a situation is a critical skill in any communication and social interaction. These abilities are part of Theory of Mind (ToM) skills and are known to be impaired in Down syndrome (DS). It therefore makes sense to…

Sebestian, Sandiyao – Journal of Cognitive Education and Psychology, 2020
The Feuerstein Instrumental Enrichment (FIE) program was implemented in a primary school in New Zealand for 10 years old students with average educational ability. Targeted goals were to examine if the FIE program helped students to be less impulsive, plan well, and better in solving problems. The program started with 17 students for the first two…

Vogelaar, Bart; Resing, Wilma C. M.; Stad, Femke E. – Journal of Cognitive Education and Psychology, 2020
This study investigated potential differences in the processes of solving analogies between gifted and average-ability children (aged 9-10 years old) in a dynamic testing setting. Utilizing a pre-test-training-post-test control group design, participants were split in four subgroups: gifted dynamic testing (n = 24), gifted control (n = 26),…

Figueiredo, Sandra – Journal of Cognitive Education and Psychology, 2020
The objective of this research is to comparatively analyze the performance of two generations of children (as first generation of immigrants) attending primary and secondary education in different geographical areas, evaluated in different decades but with equivalent age brackets. Two samples of 169 immigrant school populations in Portugal, with…

Palmqvist, Lisa; Danielsson, Henrik; Jönsson, Arne; Rönnberg, Jerker – Journal of Cognitive Education and Psychology, 2020
Background: Individuals with intellectual disabilities (ID) show difficulties with everyday planning. A tablet-based training program for everyday planning may be a suitable intervention, but its feasibility must be evaluated. This study evaluated how behavior changes during training and if individuals with ID can use technology by themselves.…

Hauenstein, Clifford E.; Embretson, Susan E. – Journal of Cognitive Education and Psychology, 2020
The Concept Formation subtest of the Woodcock Johnson Tests of Cognitive Abilities represents a dynamic test due to continual provision of feedback from examiner to examinee. Yet, the original scoring protocol for the test largely ignores this dynamic structure. The current analysis applies a dynamic adaptation of an explanatory item response…

Allen, Rebecca; Nakonechnyi, Alex; Benedetti, Mary Sovik – Journal of Cognitive Education and Psychology, 2020
This article presents a case study of an adult Ukrainian orphan, Anna, who acquired English as a second and accessed U.S. higher education despite the fact that adopted children or aged out orphans face a unique constellation of educational and psychological challenges in language learning. This article presents Anna's story in her own voice and…

Mariotti, Emily C.; Fillauer, J. Parks; Martin, McKenzie; Bolden, Jennifer – Journal of Cognitive Education and Psychology, 2020
Questions still exist about the interplay between foundational literacy components and budding cognitive structures that are thought to influence advanced reading abilities. Understanding interactions between executive functions (EFs) and specific early reading skills could contribute to our understanding of later reading achievement. The present…

Fälth, Linda; Svensson, Elin; Ström, Annika – Journal of Cognitive Education and Psychology, 2020
The aim of this study is to examine how a structured intensive training period with a phonological multisensory reading training method, at the end of Grade 1, can develop pupils' ability to connect phonemes with the corresponding graphemes as well as their ability to decode. A total of 38 pupils in Grade 1 from four elementary schools…

Yan, Veronica X.; Sana, Faria – Journal of Cognitive Education and Psychology, 2019
Interleaving examples of to-be-learned categories, rather than blocking examples by category, frequently enhances category induction. The presently dominant theory is that interleaving promotes discriminative-contrast, and suggests that category similarity structure modulates this interleaving benefit: that blocking should benefit learning when…

Veerbeek, Jochanan; Vogelaar, Bart; Resing, Wilma C. M. – Journal of Cognitive Education and Psychology, 2019
Process-oriented dynamic testing aims to investigate the processes children use to solve cognitive tasks, and evaluate changes in these processes as a result of training. For the current study, a dynamic complex figure task was constructed, using the graduated prompts approach, to investigate the processes involved in solving a complex figure task…
