Aims and methods: The WISC-V[superscript UK]…

Tzuriel, David; Shomron, Vered – British Journal of Educational Psychology, 2018
Background: The theoretical framework of the current study is based on mediated learning experience (MLE) theory, which is similar to the scaffolding concept. The main question of the current study was to what extent mother-child MLE strategies affect psychological resilience and cognitive modifiability of boys with learning disability (LD).…

Badger, Julia R.; Mellanby, Jane – British Journal of Educational Psychology, 2018
Background: School attainment tests and Cognitive Abilities Tests are used in the United Kingdom to set targets for educational outcome. Whilst these are good predictors, they depend not only on basic ability but also on learnt knowledge and skills, such as reading. Method and Aims: VESPARCH is an online group test of verbal and spatial reasoning,…

Hodgkiss, Alex; Gilligan, Katie A.; Tolmie, Andrew K.; Thomas, Michael S. C.; Farran, Emily K. – British Journal of Educational Psychology, 2018
Background: Prior longitudinal and correlational research with adults and adolescents indicates that spatial ability is a predictor of science learning and achievement. However, there is little research to date with primary-school aged children that addresses this relationship. Understanding this association has the potential to inform curriculum…

Canivez, Gary L.; Watkins, Marley W.; Good, Rebecca; James, Kate; James, Trevor – British Journal of Educational Psychology, 2017
Background: Irish educational psychologists frequently use the Wechsler Intelligence Scale for Children-Fourth UK Edition (WISC-IV[superscript UK]; Wechsler, 2004, Wechsler Intelligence Scale for Children-Fourth UK Edition, London, UK, Harcourt Assessment) in clinical assessments of children with learning difficulties. Unfortunately, reliability…

Brooker, Alice; Franklin, Anna – British Journal of Educational Psychology, 2016
Background: The presence of red appears to hamper adults' cognitive performance relative to other colours (see Elliot & Maier, 2014, "Ann. Rev. Psychol." 65, 95). Aims and sample: Here, we investigate whether colour affects cognitive performance in 8- and 9-year-olds. Method: Children completed a battery of tasks once in the presence…

Messer, David; Henry, Lucy A.; Nash, Gilly – British Journal of Educational Psychology, 2016
Background: Few investigations have examined the relationship between a comprehensive range of executive functioning (EF) abilities and reading. Aims: Our investigation identified components of EF that independently predicted single word reading, and determined whether their predictive role remained when additional variables were included in the…

Tolmie, Andrew K.; Ghazali, Zayba; Morris, Suzanne – British Journal of Educational Psychology, 2016
Background: Research has identified the core skills that predict success during primary school in reading and arithmetic, and this knowledge increasingly informs teaching. However, there has been no comparable work that pinpoints the core skills that underlie success in science. Aims and method: The present paper attempts to redress this by…

Wilson, Claire; Woolfson, Lisa Marks; Durkin, Kevin; Elliott, Mark A. – British Journal of Educational Psychology, 2016
Background: Inclusive education of children with intellectual disabilities (ID) is intended to maximize their educational experience within the mainstream school setting. While policy mandates inclusion, it is classroom teachers' behaviours that determine its success. Aims: This study provided a novel application of the theory of planned behaviour…

Li, Weijian; Ji, Haojie; Li, Fengying; Li, Ping; Zhang, Yuchi; Li, Xinyu – British Journal of Educational Psychology, 2016
Background: Like adults, children need to allocate study time and endeavour optimally in order to enhance learning effectiveness. Aims: The aim of this study was to investigate the development of shifting from habitual to agenda-based processes on study decisions. Sample: The participants were 309 children in the second, fourth, and sixth grades.…

Bianco, Federica; Lecce, Serena – British Journal of Educational Psychology, 2016
Background: Translating research findings into practice should be one of the objectives of developmental psychology. Recently, research demonstrated the existence of individual differences in theory of mind (ToM) during middle childhood that are crucial for children's academic and social adjustment. Aims: This study aims to transfer the results of…

Casas, José A.; Ortega-Ruiz, Rosario; Del Rey, Rosario – British Journal of Educational Psychology, 2015
Background: The bullying phenomenon has serious consequences for those that are involved. In order to find more effective ways to eradicate it from the schools, more research is needed. In this context, teacher management and emotional intelligence (EI) are shown to be relevant keys to consider. Aim: The aim of this study was to analyse the ways…

Cain, Kate; Bignell, Simon – British Journal of Educational Psychology, 2014
Background: Children with diagnoses of attention-deficit/hyperactivity disorder (ADHD) frequently have reading problems. To date, it is not clear whether poor reading is associated with both inattention and hyperactivity and also whether poor reading comprehension is the result of poor word reading skills or more general language comprehension…

Pino-Pasternak, Deborah – British Journal of Educational Psychology, 2014
Background: Extant research has traditionally associated children's achievement motivation with socio-emotional parental behaviours such as demonstrations of affect, responsiveness, and the degree of parental control. Aims: This study explored the extent to which parental socio-emotional and instructional behaviours (including the contingency…
