Gao, Xingyuan; Chen, Hongyan; Wu, Jie; Huang, Jingzhong – Best Evidence in Chinese Education, 2021
Task Performance is greatly significant in the field of education. The OECD defines Task Performance as the ability to function based on conscientiousness in the "Big Five" personality domains. People with high Task Performance tend to also have significant conscientiousness. In other words, they are more self-controlled, more…

Sotardi, Valerie A.; Bosch, Jannis; Brogt, Erik – Social Psychology of Education: An International Journal, 2020
We examined state evaluation anxiety, trait evaluation anxiety, and neuroticism in relation to New Zealand first-year university students' (n = 234) task performance on either a test or essay assessment. For both assessment types, the underlying components of state evaluation anxiety (cognitive worry, emotionality, and distraction) reflect…

Tossavainen, Timo; Rensaa, Ragnhild Johanne; Haukkanen, Pentti; Mattila, Mika; Johansson, Monica – European Journal of Engineering Education, 2021
This study investigates Finnish, Norwegian, and Swedish first-year engineering students' task performance in mathematics and examines how it relates to their motivational values and beliefs about the nature of mathematics. In a set of seven mathematical tasks, female students outperformed male students, for example, in the simplification of…

Chen, Juanjuan; Wang, Minhong; Dede, Chris; Grotzer, Tina A. – Instructional Science: An International Journal of the Learning Sciences, 2021
Higher-order thinking is crucial to inquiry learning. It is important to investigate how students think in inquiry contexts. Given the tacit nature of higher-order thinking, cognitive maps (e.g., concept maps, reasoning maps) have been used to externalize thinking and have shown promising effects in terms of improving inquiry task performance.…

de Vink, Isabelle C.; Willemsen, Robin H.; Lazonder, Ard. W.; Kroesbergen, Evelyn H. – British Journal of Educational Psychology, 2022
Background: Creativity requires both divergent and convergent thinking. Previous research established that "divergent" thinking relates to mathematics performance, but generally ignored the role of "convergent" thinking and, hence, leaves it unclear how both might interact when children work on mathematical tasks. This study…

Tossavainen, Timo; Rensaa, Ragnhild Johanne; Johansson, Monica – International Journal of Mathematical Education in Science and Technology, 2021
We examine a group (N = 88) of Swedish first-year engineering students, their motivation, self-efficacy, and beliefs about the nature of mathematics, and how these relate to their task performance in mathematics. In our data, engineering students who emphasized the exact reasoning in their view of mathematics performed significantly better in a…

Emhardt, Selina N.; Wermeskerken, Margot; Scheiter, Katharina; van Gog, Tamara – Applied Cognitive Psychology, 2020
Eye movements reveal what is at the center of people's attention, which is assumed to coincide with what they are thinking about. Eye-movement displays (visualizations of a person's fixations superimposed onto the stimulus, for example, as dots or circles) might provide useful information for diagnosing that person's performance. However, making…

Lawal-Adebowale, O. A.; Oyekunle, O. – International Journal of Education and Development using Information and Communication Technology, 2021
The importance of education to individual and national development engendered the need for both quality teaching and learning by teachers and students respectively. To accomplish these objectives, digital education apps have become intensively deployed for teaching and learning in the school system. Based on the potential of integrating the…

Traverso, Laura; Viterbori, Paola; Usai, Maria Carmen – Journal of Cognition and Development, 2020
This study aimed to investigate the role of theory of mind (ToM) and both cool and hot executive function (EF) in accounting for prosocial behavior. Typically developing children of 3 to 6 years of age (N = 183) were assessed on a battery of EF and ToM tasks, while parents and teachers completed a questionnaire examining the children's prosocial…

Smith, Sara A.; Briggs Baffoe-Djan, Jessica – International Journal of Bilingual Education and Bilingualism, 2022
The current study examined self-reported first language (Spanish) language reading and writing ability and behavior and relationships with digit span and stroop task performance. A battery of assessments and questionnaires was administered to 81 sequential Spanish-English bilingual university students in the U.S., for whom the sole language of…

Curran, Ross; Arroteia, Nuno; Blesa, Andreu; Musteen, Martina; Ripollés, Maria – Journal of Teaching in International Business, 2021
Enhancing individuals' preparedness to work across borders is of growing importance. This study explores the role of Cultural Intelligence and Psychological Empowerment in enhancing Task Performance among students engaged in an international experiential game-based learning project: The Global Game Challenge (GGC). Data collected from the delivery…

Ercin, Nalan; Altay, Mehmet – Journal on English Language Teaching, 2020
The axis of task research has shifted from task design to task planning, and rehearsal as a pre-task planning has been less touched upon throughout the history of the Second Language Acquisition (SLA); therefore, the current research was set around task rehearsal after Present-Practise-Product (PPP) model instruction in the task-supported language…

Zhang, Heyi; Whitebread, David – Early Child Development and Care, 2021
The importance of parental autonomy support to children's development and learning has been widely studied among Western school-age children, while scant research has been conducted among young children in other cultural contexts. To address this research gap, the primary aim of the present study was to examine the role of parental autonomy…

Mielicki, Marta K.; Fitzsimmons, Charles J.; Woodbury, Lauren H.; Marshal, Hannah; Zhang, Dake; Rivera, Ferdinand D.; Thompson, Clarissa A. – Grantee Submission, 2021
Prior work exploring preschool-aged children's reasoning with repeating patterns has shown that patterning ability is an important predictor of math achievement; however, there is limited research exploring older children's growing pattern task performance. The current study tested whether presentation format impacts performance on growing pattern…

Van de Guchte, Marrit; Rijlaarsdam, Gert; Braaksma, Martine; Bimmel, Peter – Language Teaching Research, 2019
The present experimental study examined whether a different focus during a pre-task planning observation task affects learners' subsequent oral task performance. Forty-eight ninth-grade students learning German as a foreign language were randomly assigned to two different planning conditions: video observations with a focus on language (FonL) and…
