Korhonen, Johan; Nyroos, Mikaela; Jonsson, Bert; Eklöf, Hanna – Educational Psychology, 2018
The aim of this study was to investigate the interplay between test anxiety and working memory (WM) on mathematics performance in younger children. A sample of 624 grade 3 students completed a test battery consisting of a test anxiety scale, WM tasks and the Swedish national examination in mathematics for grade 3. The main effects of test anxiety…

Dias, Natália Martins; Seabra, Alessandra Gotuzo – Educational Psychology, 2017
Executive functions (EF) can be promoted by classroom interventions. Our study investigated whether (a) an intervention conducted by teachers improves EF in children; (b) there are effects on behaviour and academic achievement; and (c) there are stable benefits in a one-year follow-up. Fifty-eight first-graders, divided into experimental (EG = 28)…

Petersen, Jennifer Lee; Hyde, Janet Shibley – Educational Psychology, 2017
Although many studies have documented developmental change in mathematics motivation, little is known about how these trends predict math performance. A sample of 288 participants from the United States reported their perceived math ability, math utility value and math interest in 5th, 7th and 9th grades. Latent growth curve models estimated…

Mok, Magdalena Mo Ching; Zhu, Jinxin; Law, Cecilia Lai Kwan – Educational Psychology, 2017
This study aimed to explore the cross-lagged association of achievements in mathematics and languages. While the effect of language on achievements in mathematics is well-documented, few studies have examined the reciprocal relationships among mathematics, the Chinese language and the English language in the same study. This study conducted a…

Zhao, Ningning; Valcke, Martin; Desoete, Annemie; Burny, Elise; Imbo, Ineke – Educational Psychology, 2014
The present paper investigates differences in the process of mastering the four basic arithmetic operations (addition, subtraction, multiplication and division) between Flemish and Chinese children from Grade 3 till Grade 6 (i.e. from 8 to 11 years old). The results showed, firstly, that Chinese students outperformed Flemish students in each grade…
