Castro-Alonso, Juan C.; Wong, Mona; Adesope, Olusola O.; Ayres, Paul; Paas, Fred – Educational Psychology Review, 2019
Studies comparing the instructional effectiveness of dynamic versus static visualizations have produced mixed results. In this work, we investigated whether gender imbalance in the participant samples of these studies may have contributed to the mixed results. We conducted a meta-analysis of randomized experiments in which groups of students…

Zamary, Amanda; Rawson, Katherine A. – Educational Psychology Review, 2018
Students in many courses are commonly expected to learn declarative concepts, which are abstract concepts denoted by key terms with short definitions that can be applied to a variety of scenarios as reported by Rawson et al. ("Educational Psychology Review" 27:483-504, 2015). Given that declarative concepts are common and foundational in…

Ngu, Bing Hiong; Phan, Huy P.; Yeung, Alexander Seeshing; Chung, Siu Fung – Educational Psychology Review, 2018
Between two popular teaching methods (i.e., balance method vs. inverse method) for equation solving, the main difference occurs at the operational line (e.g., +2 on both sides vs. -2 becomes +2), whereby it alters the state of the equation and yet maintains its equality. Element interactivity occurs on both sides of the equation in the balance…

Schroeder, Noah L.; Nesbit, John C.; Anguiano, Carlos J.; Adesope, Olusola O. – Educational Psychology Review, 2018
A concept map is a node-link diagram in which each node represents a concept and each link identifies the relationship between the two concepts it connects. We investigated how using concept maps influences learning by synthesizing the results of 142 independent effect sizes (n = 11,814). A random-effects model meta-analysis revealed that learning…

Ziegler, Esther; Edelsbrunner, Peter A.; Stern, Elsbeth – Educational Psychology Review, 2018
Knowledge representations that result from practicing problem solving can be expected to differ from knowledge representations that emerge from explicit verbalizing of principles and rules. We examined the degree to which the two types of learning improve problem-solving knowledge and verbal explanation knowledge in classroom instruction. We…

Kim, Nam Ju; Belland, Brian R.; Walker, Andrew E. – Educational Psychology Review, 2018
Computer-based scaffolding plays a pivotal role in improving students' higher-order skills in the context of problem-based learning for Science, Technology, Engineering and Mathematics (STEM) education. The effectiveness of computer-based scaffolding has been demonstrated through traditional meta-analyses. However, traditional meta-analyses suffer…

Okkinga, Mariska; van Steensel, Roel; van Gelderen, Amos J. S.; van Schooten, Erik; Sleegers, Peter J. C.; Arends, Lidia R. – Educational Psychology Review, 2018
Research has demonstrated that in controlled experiments in which small groups are being tutored by researchers, reading-strategy instruction is highly effective in fostering reading comprehension (Palincsar & Brown, "Cognition and Instruction," 1(2), 117-175, 1984). It is unclear, however, whether reading-strategy interventions are…

Brante, Eva Wennås; Strømsø, Helge I. – Educational Psychology Review, 2018
The process of using information about documents such as the author, genre, and date of publication while evaluating and interpreting those documents' content was labeled "sourcing" in a seminal paper by Wineburg ("Journal of Educational Psychology," "83," "73," 1991). Studies in various domains have adapted…

Jiang, Dayu; Kalyuga, Slava; Sweller, John – Educational Psychology Review, 2018
The expertise reversal effect occurs when instruction that is effective for novice learners is ineffective or even counterproductive for more expert learners. Four experiments designed to explore the expertise reversal effect in the field of teaching and learning foreign language listening skills were conducted. Three instructional formats…

Renkl, Alexander; Scheiter, Katharina – Educational Psychology Review, 2017
Visual displays are very frequently used in learning materials. Although visual displays have great potential to foster learning, they also pose substantial demands on learners so that the actual learning outcomes are often disappointing. In this article, we pursue three main goals. First, we identify the main difficulties that learners have when…

McCrudden, Matthew T.; Rapp, David N. – Educational Psychology Review, 2017
We regularly consult and construct visual displays that are intended to communicate important information. The power of these displays and the instructional messages we attempt to comprehend when using them emerge from the information included in the display and by their spatial arrangement. In this article, we identify common types of visual…

Vogel, Freydis; Wecker, Christof; Kollar, Ingo; Fischer, Frank – Educational Psychology Review, 2017
Scripts for computer-supported collaborative learning (CSCL) offer socio-cognitive scaffolding for learners to engage in collaborative activities that are considered beneficial for learning. Yet, CSCL scripts are often criticized for hampering naturally emerging collaboration. Research on the effectiveness of CSCL scripts has shown divergent…

Phan, Huy P.; Ngu, Bing H.; Yeung, Alexander S. – Educational Psychology Review, 2017
We recently developed the "Framework of Achievement Bests" to explain the importance of effective functioning, personal growth, and enrichment of well-being experiences. This framework postulates a concept known as "optimal achievement best," which stipulates the idea that individuals may, in general, strive to achieve personal…

de Koning, Björn B.; Bos, Lisanne T.; Wassenburg, Stephanie I.; van der Schoot, Menno – Educational Psychology Review, 2017
This study investigated the effects of a mental simulation training targeted at improving children's reading comprehension. In a 4-week period, one group of third and fourth graders (n = 75) learned to draw upon their sensorimotor memories and experiences to mentally simulate text (experimental training group), whereas another group (n = 51)…

Hall, Colby S. – Educational Psychology Review, 2016
Skill in generating inferences predicts reading comprehension for students in the elementary and intermediate grades even after taking into account word reading, vocabulary knowledge, and cognitive ability (Cain et al., "Journal of Educational Psychology, 96," 671-81, 2004; Kendeou et al., "Journal of Research in Reading," 31,…
