Jordan M. Wheeler; Kevin R. Raczynski; Allan S. Cohen; George Engelhard Jr. – Journal of Experimental Education, 2024
Integrated writing assessments are tasks that require students to construct an essay using evidence from source texts. Topic models are statistical models used to analyze text. This study analyzes two integrated writing tasks from students in grades 6 (N=1,250) and 8 (N=1,250) using topic models. Independent evaluations of the essays were also…

Kyle Cox; Ben Kelcey; Hannah Luce – Journal of Experimental Education, 2024
Comprehensive evaluation of treatment effects is aided by considerations for moderated effects. In educational research, the combination of natural hierarchical structures and prevalence of group-administered or shared facilitator treatments often produces three-level partially nested data structures. Literature details planning strategies for a…

Eric C. Schoute; Patricia A. Alexander; Sofie M. M. Loyens; Doug Lombardi; Fred Paas – Journal of Experimental Education, 2024
This study aimed to explore undergraduates' perceptions of relevance in conjunction with two associated constructs, personal interest, and task value. To unearth these perceptions, American (n = 104) and Dutch (n = 79) students completed the Conceptualization of Relevance Task (CoRT). This task required them to: (a) select a graphic that best…

Alexandra List – Journal of Experimental Education, 2024
Students' evidence-based reasoning was examined across two studies. In Study 1, students were asked to evaluate newspaper excerpts including anecdotal, descriptive, correlational, and causal evidence provided in support of causal claims as well as to justify their quality ratings for two of these excerpts. In Study 2, students' justifications for…

Cassandra Potier Watkins; Stanislas Dehaene – Journal of Experimental Education, 2024
We report the effectiveness of using the tablet-game Kalulu Phonics immediately after intervention in kindergarten and on national evaluations the year after. In a previous intervention testing the software with 1st graders, fluency and comprehension were boosted, but only when used in concert with reading instruction at the start of the year.…

Asha K. Jitendra; Michael R. Harwell; Soo-hyun Im – Journal of Experimental Education, 2024
This study investigated the sustainability effects of the schema-based instruction (SBI) program and corresponding PD on the instructional practices of two cohorts of teachers (i.e., SBI experienced-teacher implementers and SBI novice-teacher implementers) and on students' ability to reason with proportions and overall mathematics performance. SBI…

Pamela Sheffler; Cecilia S. Cheung – Journal of Experimental Education, 2024
Parent's beliefs about intelligence can influence children's learning through parenting practices. It is unclear how parents' perceptions of the child's ability may affect these processes. This experimental study explored the joint effects of mothers' growth mindset and perceptions of child competence on their learning involvement. Children (N =…

Silvia Di Battista; Monica Pivetti; Gilda Bozzi – Journal of Experimental Education, 2024
Teachers play a fundamental role in guaranteeing an inclusive teaching practice using Educational Robotics (ER). However, they may hold gender-differentiated views of their students' academic abilities and aptitudes in ER. This quasi-experimental test investigated gender-differentiated attributions and behavioral intentions of N = 158 Italian…

Dubravka Svetina Valdivia; Shenghai Dai – Journal of Experimental Education, 2024
Applications of polytomous IRT models in applied fields (e.g., health, education, psychology) are abound. However, little is known about the impact of the number of categories and sample size requirements for precise parameter recovery. In a simulation study, we investigated the impact of the number of response categories and required sample size…

James D. Weese; Ronna C. Turner; Allison Ames; Xinya Liang; Brandon Crawford – Journal of Experimental Education, 2024
In this study a standardized effect size was created for use with the SIBTEST procedure. Using this standardized effect size, a single set of heuristics was developed that are appropriate for data fitting different item response models (e.g., 2-parameter logistic, 3-parameter logistic). The standardized effect size rescales the raw beta-uni value…

Hsin-Yun Lee; You-Lin Chen; Li-Jen Weng – Journal of Experimental Education, 2024
The second version of Kaiser's Measure of Sampling Adequacy (MSA[subscript 2]) has been widely applied to assess the factorability of data in psychological research. The MSA[subscript 2] is developed in the population and little is known about its behavior in finite samples. If estimated MSA[subscript 2]s are biased due to sampling errors,…

Erol Ozcelik; Ismahan Arslan-Ari – Journal of Experimental Education, 2024
Several studies in multimedia learning have examined the effect of emotional design. Recent findings from cognitive psychology provide opportunities for educators to use more direct ways of manipulating emotion to enhance learning. These studies have shown that emotionally arousing words and pictures are remembered better than neutral ones.…

Robert C. Schoen; Catherine C. Lewis; Christopher Rhoads; Kevin Lai; Claire M. Riddell – Journal of Experimental Education, 2024
Lesson study, especially when conducted with support from targeted resources, is often identified as a potentially effective means to support teacher learning. In this study, 80 school-based teams of educators, representing 80 classrooms of third- or fourth-grade students in the US, were randomly assigned to one of four conditions: lesson study…

Bradley W. Bergey – Journal of Experimental Education, 2024
Student-generated questions are an important mechanism for learning and self-regulation, yet their scarcity in classroom discourse points to a need to understand how students decide to ask or withhold their questions. This study examined how 12 graduate students in an introductory statistics course made decisions about asking questions during…

Ordene V. Edwards – Journal of Experimental Education, 2024
The current study examined the effect of combining a utility value intervention with task relevance instructions on utility value, recall, and reading time. A utility value intervention is an activity that assists students in making relevance connections between course content and their lives, while task relevance instructions are pre-reading cues…
