Chow, Jason C.; Wehby, Joseph H. – Educational Psychology Review, 2018
A growing body of evidence points to the common co-occurrence of language and behavioral difficulties in children. Primary studies often focus on this relation in children with identified deficits. However, it is unknown whether this relation holds across other children at risk or representative samples of children or over time. The purpose of…

Allen, Kelly; Kern, Margaret L.; Vella-Brodrick, Dianne; Hattie, John; Waters, Lea – Educational Psychology Review, 2018
Belonging is an essential aspect of psychological functioning. Schools offer unique opportunities to improve belonging for school-aged children. Research on school belonging, however, has been fragmented and diluted by inconsistency in the use of terminology. To resolve some of these inconsistencies, the current study uses meta-analysis of…

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…

Basma, Badriah; Savage, Robert – Educational Psychology Review, 2018
This systematic review explores the impact of teacher professional development (PD) on student reading achievement. The first part of the literature evaluates all available existing systematic reviews and meta-analyses of PD intervention studies. No quality reviews of PD and reading specifically (distinct from 'attainment') were found. There was a…

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…

Iancu, Alina Eugenia; Rusu, Andrei; Maroiu, Cristina; Pacurar, Roxana; Maricu?oiu, Lauren?iu P. – Educational Psychology Review, 2018
We conducted a meta-analysis to investigate the effectiveness of interventions aimed at reducing teacher burnout. Online and reference list searches yielded 513 unique results, and the final sample contains 23 controlled trials (19 journal articles and 4 unpublished dissertations). More than two thirds of the studies had optimal quality, and the…

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…

Wentzel, Kathryn R.; Jablansky, Sophie; Scalise, Nicole R. – Educational Psychology Review, 2018
Using meta-analytic techniques, we examined systematically the evidence linking friendship to academically related outcomes, asking: To what extent is friendship related to academic performance and to academically related cognitive skills? Based on 22 studies that yielded 81 effect sizes and 28 independent samples, we examined relations between…

Xie, Heping; Zhou, Zongkui; Liu, Qingqi – Educational Psychology Review, 2018
Recent research in a text-based educational context has demonstrated a seemingly paradoxical disfluency effect in reading, namely that learning with hard-to-read (disfluent) materials helps learners recall more details than learning with easy-to-read (fluent) materials. Many follow-up studies using a variety of participants, learning materials,…

Chow, Jason C.; Ekholm, Eric – Educational Psychology Review, 2018
Meta-analyses are used to make educational decisions in policy and practice. Publication bias refers to the extent to which published literature is more likely to have statistically significant results and larger sample sizes than studies that do not make it through the publication process. The purpose of the present study is to estimate the…

Marker, Caroline; Gnambs, Timo; Appel, Markus – Educational Psychology Review, 2018
The popularity of social networking sites (SNSs) among adolescents and young adults has raised concerns that the intensity of using these platforms might be associated with lower academic achievement. The empirical findings on this issue, however, are anything but conclusive. Therefore, we present four random-effects meta-analyses including 59…

Wormington, Stephanie Virgine; Linnenbrink-Garcia, Lisa – Educational Psychology Review, 2017
The current study reviewed and synthesized studies employing a person-centered approach to studying achievement goals. Towards this end, a common labeling scheme was developed for goal profiles. Ten profile types were identified across studies and compared via meta-analytic techniques in terms of academic motivation, social/emotional well-being,…

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…

Peng, Peng; Wang, Cuicui; Tao, Sha; Sun, Congying – Educational Psychology Review, 2017
The current meta-analysis synthesized findings from profiling research on Chinese children with reading difficulties (RD). We reviewed a total of 81 studies published between 1964 and May 2015, representing a total of 9735 Chinese children. There are 982 effect sizes for the comparison between children with RD and age-matched typically developing…

Hall, Colby; Roberts, Garrett J.; Cho, Eunsoo; McCulley, Lisa V.; Carroll, Megan; Vaughn, Sharon – Educational Psychology Review, 2017
This meta-analysis synthesizes the last two decades of experimental and quasi-experimental research on reading instruction across academic contexts (e.g., social studies, science, mathematics, English language arts) for English learners (ELs) in grades 4 through 8, to determine (a) the overall effectiveness of reading instruction for upper…
