Egloff, Frank; Förster, Natalie; Souvignier, Elmar – Frontline Learning Research, 2019
Teachers' beliefs about teaching have been found to affect students' learning growth. The aim of this study was to investigate effects of teachers' constructivist and direct-transmissive beliefs on learners' reading progress and whether these effects are influenced by students' ability. We measured constructivist and direct-transmissive beliefs of…

Testers, Laurent; Gegenfurtner, Andreas; van Geel, Rolf; Brand-Gruwel, Saskia – Frontline Learning Research, 2019
An important goal of educational designers is to achieve long-term transfer of learning that is the learner's application of newly acquired competencies. Extensive research during more than a century shows that especially in formal educational settings this fundamental aspect of education often occurs poorly or not at all, leading to what is…

Fraenken, Judith; Wosnitza, Marold – Frontline Learning Research, 2019
In the past decades, schools have become more autonomous and open learning environments. It therefore seems increasingly important for educational research to also consider contextual influences by including autonomous learning settings in its investigations. Studying the positive activating emotion of pride seems useful to learn more about the…

Vekkaila, Jenna; Virtanen, Viivi; Kukkola, Jani; Frick, Liezel; Pyhältö, Kirsi – Frontline Learning Research, 2019
Knowledge creation is at the core of scientific endeavour. As early career researchers, doctoral students take part in knowledge creation through engaging in various knowledge practices and make their original contribution to knowledge, and become experts in their particular domain. However, our understanding of what doctoral knowledge practices…

Eckstein, Boris – Frontline Learning Research, 2019
Classroom disturbances impair the quality of teaching and learning, and they can be a source of strain for both teachers and students. Some studies indicate, however, that not everyone involved gets equally disturbed by the same occurrences. Altogether, there is still little solid knowledge about the teachers' and the students' subjective…

Larmuseau, Charlotte; Vanneste, Pieter; Cornelis, Jan; Desmet, Piet; Depaepe, Fien – Frontline Learning Research, 2019
Cognitive load theory is one of the most influential theoretical explanations of cognitive processing during learning. Despite its success, attempts to assess cognitive load during learning have proven difficult. Therefore, in the current study, students' self-reported cognitive load after the problem- solving process has been combined with…

Schindler, Julia; Schindler, Simon; Reinhard, Marc-André – Frontline Learning Research, 2019
Self-generated information is better recognized and recalled than read information. This so-called generation effect has been replicated several times for different types of stimulus material, different generation tasks, and retention intervals. The present study investigated the impact of individual differences in learners' disposition to engage…

Van Gasse, Roos – Frontline Learning Research, 2019
In recent years, the emphasis on interaction in data use has grown because of its potential to support individual teachers. However, in practice, teachers do not appear to interact widely in their use of data, either formally or informally. To gain knowledge of how sustainable data use interactions can be facilitated, this study investigated how…

Andresen, Anette; Anmarkrud, Øistein; Salmerón, Ladislao; Bråten, Ivar – Frontline Learning Research, 2019
This study investigated how four 10th-grade students with dyslexia processed and integrated information across web pages and representations when learning in a multiple source multimedia context. Eye movement data showed that participants' processing of the materials varied with respect to their initial exploration of the web pages, their overall…

Ståhl, Tore – Frontline Learning Research, 2019
With the introduction of internet as a source of information, parents have observed youngsters' tendency to prefer internet as a source, and almost a reluctance to learn in advance since "you can look it up when needed". Questions arise, such as 'Are these phenomena symptoms of changing beliefs about knowledge and learning? Is it at all…

Brom, Cyril; Dobrovolný, Viktor; Dechterenko, Filip; Stárková, Tereza; Bromová, Edita – Frontline Learning Research, 2019
Game-based learning is supposed to motivate learners. However, to what degree does motivation driven by interest in playing an instructional game affect learning outcomes compared to motivation driven by interest in the very learning process? This is not known. In this study with a unique design and intervention, young adults (N = 128; a…

Nielsen, Tine; Friderichsen, Ida Sophie; Hartkopf, Bjarke Tarpgaard – Frontline Learning Research, 2019
Self-efficacy is associated with both academic performance and attrition in higher education. Whether it is possible to measure students' academic self-efficacy after admission and prior to commencing higher education (i.e. pre-academic self-efficacy) in a valid and reliable way has hardly been studied. Aims: 1) to evaluate the construct validity…

We propose a conceptual framework which may guide research on fostering diagnostic competences in simulations in higher education. We first review and link research perspectives on the components and the development of diagnostic competences, taken from medical and teacher education. Applying conceptual knowledge in diagnostic activities is…

Hämäläinen, Raija; De Wever, Bram; Waaramaa, Teija; Laukkanen, Anne-Maria; Lämsä, Joni – Frontline Learning Research, 2018
In this study, we introduce new insights into prosodic analyses as an emerging method to study what happens in classrooms interactions. We claim that the prosodic aspects (features of speech such as intonation, volume and pace) of talk are important, but under-represented in the learning sciences. These prosodic aspects may be used to complement,…

Puurtinen, Marjaana – Frontline Learning Research, 2018
The application of new methods and measures in domains with few methodological traditions of that kind often presents researchers with a challenge; they may have to take up the task of developing their understanding of the phenomenon while, at the same time, creating the practices for its study. For us, the method was eye tracking, and the topic,…
