Falco, Lia D.; Summers, Jessica J. – Journal of Experimental Education, 2021
The purpose of this study was to further clarify the structure of social persuasion as a source of self-efficacy in early adolescence and to examine the influence of social persuasion on STEM self-efficacy. Specifically, we proposed that social persuasion for math should be considered a multifactor construct for middle school students when…

Papenberg, Martin; Diedenhofen, Birk; Musch, Jochen – Journal of Experimental Education, 2021
Testwiseness may introduce construct-irrelevant variance to multiple-choice test scores. Presenting response options sequentially has been proposed as a potential solution to this problem. In an experimental validation, we determined the psychometric properties of a test based on the sequential presentation of response options. We created a strong…

Abós, Ángel; Sevil-Serrano, Javier; Julián-Clemente, José Antonio; Generelo, Eduardo; García-González, Luis – Journal of Experimental Education, 2021
Grounded in self-determination theory, this study examines the effects of a leisure-time physical activity (LTPA) intervention with work colleagues on work-related outcomes of relatedness satisfaction, engagement factors, satisfaction, and burnout subtypes. Fifty-seven teachers (M[subscript age] = 46.81 ± 7.90), from two secondary schools…

Lu, Yaheng; Li, Qian; Patrick, Helen; Mantzicopoulos, Panayota – Journal of Experimental Education, 2021
We report on the construction and validation of the Young Children's Math Anxiety Scale (YCMAX), a developmentally appropriate measure of math anxiety intended for kindergarten students. We administered the YCMAX to a sample of public school kindergarteners (N = 355) and conducted factor analyses to examine its structure. A two-factor solution…

Lowrie, Tom; Harris, Danielle; Logan, Tracy; Hegarty, Mary – Journal of Experimental Education, 2021
There is increasing evidence for the impact of spatial training on mathematics performance in early years of education, however little research has focused on secondary school environments, which are traditionally more discipline driven. In the present study, a large-scale classroom-based intervention saw the introduction of twelve hours of…

Pesout, Ondra; Nietfeld, John – Journal of Experimental Education, 2021
Metacognitive monitoring skills are crucial for middle school students to improve academic performance and promote self-regulation. The current study examined the effect of social interaction on metacognitive monitoring training assessed by calibration accuracy measures and performance on comprehension items. Sixth-grade students (N = 84) assigned…

Jia, Yuane; Konold, Timothy – Journal of Experimental Education, 2021
Traditional observed variable multilevel models for evaluating indirect effects are limited by their inability to quantify measurement and sampling error. They are further restricted by being unable to fully separate within- and between-level effects without bias. Doubly latent models reduce these biases by decomposing the observed within-level…

Bulus, Metin; Dong, Nianbo – Journal of Experimental Education, 2021
Sample size determination in multilevel randomized trials (MRTs) and multilevel regression discontinuity designs (MRDDs) can be complicated due to multilevel structure, monetary restrictions, differing marginal costs per treatment and control units, and range restrictions in sample size at one or more levels. These issues have sparked a set of…

Jamshidi, Laleh; Declercq, Lies; Fernández-Castilla, Belén; Ferron, John M.; Moeyaert, Mariola; Beretvas, S. Natasha; Van den Noortgate, Wim – Journal of Experimental Education, 2021
Previous research found bias in the estimate of the overall fixed effects and variance components using multilevel meta-analyses of standardized single-case data. Therefore, we evaluate two adjustments in an attempt to reduce the bias and improve the statistical properties of the parameter estimates. The results confirm the existence of bias when…

Schellenberg, Benjamin J. I.; Mosewich, Amber D.; Bailis, Daniel S.; Gaudreau, Patrick; Verner-Filion, Jérémie – Journal of Experimental Education, 2021
People generally recognize the benefits of responding to failures with self-compassion (i.e., with self-kindness, a sense of common humanity, and mindfulness) rather than self-criticism. In this research, we replicated this effect with passionate students who had all reported that academics was a pursuit that they enjoyed and was important to…

Forrin, Noah D.; Mills, Caitlin; D'Mello, Sidney K.; Risko, Evan F.; Smilek, Daniel; Seli, Paul – Journal of Experimental Education, 2021
The prevalence of the acronym tl;dr ("too long; didn't read") suggests that people intentionally disengage their attention from long sections of text. We studied this real-world phenomenon in an educational context by measuring rates of intentional and unintentional mind-wandering while undergraduate student participants (n = 80) read…

Hartman, Tova; Schachter, Elli – Journal of Experimental Education, 2021
This paper discusses high-school students' perspectives on their participation in educational survey research. Students responded to a Likert-style questionnaire about their school's social-educational portrait and were invited at its end to briefly comment on the survey itself. Qualitative analysis showed that a sizable proportion of students…

Flunger, Barbara; Trautwein, Ulrich; Nagengast, Benjamin; Lüdtke, Oliver; Niggli, Alois; Schnyder, Inge – Journal of Experimental Education, 2021
The present study illustrates the utility of applying multilevel mixture models in educational research, using data on the homework behavior of 1,812 Swiss eighth-grade students in French as a second language. A previous person-centered study identified 5 homework learning types characterized by different patterns of high or low homework time and…

Sidney, Pooja G.; Thompson, Clarissa A.; Fitzsimmons, Charles; Taber, Jennifer M. – Journal of Experimental Education, 2021
People's attitudes toward mathematics are multifaceted. Across four studies, we found that children and adults have different attitudes about mathematics when asked specifically about whole numbers, as opposed to fractions. The vast majority of children and adults reported negative attitudes toward fractions despite having positive attitudes…

Fernández-Castilla, Belén; Declercq, Lies; Jamshidi, Laleh; Beretvas, S. Natasha; Onghena, Patrick; Van den Noortgate, Wim – Journal of Experimental Education, 2021
This study explores the performance of classical methods for detecting publication bias--namely, Egger's regression test, Funnel Plot test, Begg's Rank Correlation and Trim and Fill method--in meta-analysis of studies that report multiple effects. Publication bias, outcome reporting bias, and a combination of these were generated. Egger's…
