Hübner, Nicolas; Wagner, Wolfgang; Hochweber, Jan; Neumann, Marko; Nagengast, Benjamin – Journal of Educational Psychology, 2020
Teacher-assigned grades provide important information that is used by universities and colleges to make admission decisions and by employers to make hiring decisions. Besides grades, the results of standardized achievement tests are frequently used for student selection and allocation. However, correlations between the two achievement measures are…

Altani, Angeliki; Protopapas, Athanassios; Katopodi, Katerina; Georgiou, George K. – Journal of Educational Psychology, 2020
This study aimed to examine (a) the developing interrelations between the efficiency of reading individually presented words (i.e., isolated word recognition speed) and the efficiency of reading multiword sequences (i.e., word list and text reading fluency); (b) whether serial digit naming, indexing the ability to process multi-item sequences,…

Rohrer, Doug; Dedrick, Robert F.; Hartwig, Marissa K.; Cheung, Chi-Ngai – Journal of Educational Psychology, 2020
We report the results of a preregistered, cluster randomized controlled trial of a mathematics learning intervention known as interleaved practice. Whereas most mathematics assignments consist of a block of problems devoted to the same skill or concept, an interleaved assignment is arranged so that no 2 consecutive problems require the same…

Moritz, Julia; Meyerhoff, Hauke S.; Schwan, Stephan – Journal of Educational Psychology, 2020
Previous research has demonstrated that cognitive offloading (i.e., externalizing mental processes) is useful for immediate problem solving. However, long-term effects of cognitive offloading on subsequent problem solving without offloading are remarkably understudied. Our main goal was to investigate the effects of representation control (i.e.,…

Akkerman, Dion M.; Vulperhorst, Jonne P.; Akkerman, Sanne F. – Journal of Educational Psychology, 2020
Although interest has been repeatedly identified as a powerful basis for learning and academic achievement, limited empirical work has looked at the structural composition, persistence, stability, and development of interests over time. Such work is necessary to support developmental models of interest empirically. Using 6 dimensions identified in…

Rinne, Luke F.; Ye, Ai; Jordan, Nancy C. – Journal of Educational Psychology, 2020
The present longitudinal study investigated the developmental trajectories of addition, subtraction, and multiplication fluency; their relationships to general cognitive functions; and potential interrelations between reading fluency and growth in arithmetic fluency for different operations. The central prediction was that measures of arithmetic…

Träff, Ulf; Olsson, Linda; Skagerlund, Kenny; Östergren, Rickard – Journal of Educational Psychology, 2020
This study examined cognitive precursors of hierarchical mathematical development. Six-year-old children (n = 258) were assessed on number skills, cognitive skills, and arithmetic 1 year prior to school entry. Skills in advanced arithmetic and advanced mathematics were assessed in Grades 3 and 6, respectively. Path analyses were computed and…

Roelle, Julian; Renkl, Alexander – Journal of Educational Psychology, 2020
Example-based learning often uses a design in which learners first receive basic instructional explanations of new principles and concepts and then examples thereof. In this sequence, it is crucial that learners self-explain by using the content of the basic instructional explanations to elaborate on the examples. Typically, learners are not…

Rosenzweig, Emily Q.; Wigfield, Allan; Hulleman, Chris S. – Journal of Educational Psychology, 2020
This study compared two expectancy-value-theory-based interventions designed to promote college students' motivation and performance in introductory college physics. The utility value intervention was adapted from prior research and focused on helping students relate course material to their lives in order to perceive the material as more useful.…

Carr, Martha; Horan, Erin; Alexeev, Natalia; Barned, Nicole; Wang, Lu; Otumfuor, Beryl – Journal of Educational Psychology, 2020
Spatial skills have been consistently linked to mathematics achievement in older students and adults, but we know little about their relationship to mathematics achievement in elementary school. This study examined how spatial skills influenced the development of number sense, and subsequent mathematics competency, as students progressed from the…

Lazarides, Rebecca; Dicke, Anna-Lena; Rubach, Charlott; Eccles, Jacquelynne S. – Journal of Educational Psychology, 2020
Four topics were investigated in this longitudinal person-centered study: (a) profiles of subjective task values and ability self-concepts of adolescents in the domain of mathematics, (b) the stability of and changes to the profiles of motivational beliefs from Grade 7 to 12, (c) the relation of changes to student-perceived classroom…

McMaster, Kristen L.; Lembke, Erica S.; Shin, Jaehyun; Poch, Apryl L.; Smith, R. Alex; Jung, Pyung-Gang; Allen, Abigail A.; Wagner, Kyle – Journal of Educational Psychology, 2020
We examined the effects of a professional development (PD) system designed to support teachers' use of data-based instruction (DBI) to improve early writing outcomes for children with intensive needs. The PD system, called "DBI-TLC," provided tools for early writing assessment and intervention, learning modules including face-to-face…

Panayiotou, Margarita; Humphrey, Neil; Hennessey, Alexandra – Journal of Educational Psychology, 2020
This cluster randomized trial evaluated the impact of the Promoting Alternative Thinking Strategies (PATHS) curriculum on children's psychological wellbeing, peer social support, and school connectedness. Forty-five schools in England were randomly assigned to implement PATHS or continue their usual provision for 2 years. The trial sample was…

Schroeder, Noah L.; Cenkci, Ada T. – Journal of Educational Psychology, 2020
The spatial split-attention principle suggests that presenting related words and pictures spatially close to one another will improve learning compared with a spatially distant design, and two meta-analyses have shown support for the principle. However, it is not clear why the principle occurs. It has been theorized that integrated graphic designs…

Song, Juyeon; Gaspard, Hanna; Nagengast, Benjamin; Trautwein, Ulrich – Journal of Educational Psychology, 2020
Conscientiousness and interest are well-known predictors of academic effort and achievement. As hypothesized by the Conscientiousness × Interest Compensation (CONIC) model, conscientiousness and interest can (partly) compensate for each other, leading to (comparatively) high effort if either conscientiousness or interest is high. The present…
