Strain, Amber Chauncey; Azevedo, Roger; D'Mello, Sidney K. – Contemporary Educational Psychology, 2013
We used a false-biofeedback methodology to manipulate physiological arousal in order to induce affective states that would influence learners' metacognitive judgments and learning performance. False-biofeedback is a method used to induce physiological arousal (and resultant affective states) by presenting learners with audio stimuli of false heart…

Rowe, Meredith L.; Silverman, Rebecca D.; Mullan, Bridget E. – Contemporary Educational Psychology, 2013
Previous research suggests that presenting redundant nonverbal semantic information in the form of gestures and/or pictures may aid word learning in first and foreign languages. But do nonverbal supports help all learners equally? We address this issue by examining the role of gestures and pictures as nonverbal supports for word learning in a…

Nievelstein, Fleurie; van Gog, Tamara; van Dijck, Gijs; Boshuizen, Henny P. A. – Contemporary Educational Psychology, 2013
The worked example effect indicates that learning by studying worked examples is more effective than learning by solving the equivalent problems. The expertise reversal effect indicates that this is only the case for novice learners; once prior knowledge of the task is available problem solving becomes more effective for learning. These effects,…

Dunn, Karee E.; Airola, Denise T.; Lo, Wen-Juo; Garrison, Mickey – Contemporary Educational Psychology, 2013
Classroom level data driven decision-making (DDDM) involves the use of data to identify patterns of performance that reveal students' academic strengths and weaknesses relative to established learning goals, and the planning of instructional practices to support academic success for all students. Although DDDM is not a new paradigm in education,…
