Cheng, Yahua; Zhang, Jie; Li, Hong; Anderson, Richard; Ding, Fengjiao; Nguyen-Jahiel, Kim; Shu, Hua; Wu, Xinchun – Instructional Science: An International Journal of the Learning Sciences, 2015
A study involving 106 fourth graders and two teachers from a school in Beijing investigated the impact of a peer-led, open-format discussion approach, called collaborative reasoning (CR), on students' reading comprehension and teacher's professional learning. Mixed results of effects of CR on children's reading comprehension were found. After…

Yew, Elaine H. J.; Yong, Janice J. Y. – Instructional Science: An International Journal of the Learning Sciences, 2014
In problem-based learning (PBL), the role of a tutor or facilitator is different from what is typically considered as the role of a traditional teacher. In addition to being a subject-matter expert, the facilitator is also expected to be "socially" and "cognitively congruent". In this study, we analyze the survey responses from…

Clinton, Virginia – Instructional Science: An International Journal of the Learning Sciences, 2014
Student approaches to learning have been a popular area of research in educational psychology. One useful framework for understanding student approaches to learning is through Biggs' presage-process-product model. The purpose of this study is to examine the process stage of the 3P model. Undergraduate students (N = 67) thought aloud while…

Große, Cornelia S. – Instructional Science: An International Journal of the Learning Sciences, 2014
It is commonly suggested to mathematics teachers to present learners different methods in order to solve one problem. This so-called "learning with multiple solution methods" is also recommended from a psychological point of view. However, existing research leaves many questions unanswered, particularly concerning the effects of…

Yeo, Jennifer; Tan, Seng Chee – Instructional Science: An International Journal of the Learning Sciences, 2014
The introduction of problem-based learning into K-12 science classrooms faces the challenge of achieving the dual goal of learning science content and developing problem-solving skills. To overcome this content-process tension in science classrooms, we employed the knowledge-creation approach as a boundary object between the two seemingly…

Hefter, Markus H.; Berthold, Kirsten; Renkl, Alexander; Riess, Werner; Schmid, Sebastian; Fries, Stefan – Instructional Science: An International Journal of the Learning Sciences, 2014
Argumentation skills play a crucial role in science education and in preparing school students to act as informed citizens. While processing conflicting scientific positions regarding topics such as sustainable development in the domain of ecology, argumentation skills such as evaluating arguments or supporting theories with evidence are…

Hod, Yotam; Ben-Zvi, Dani – Instructional Science: An International Journal of the Learning Sciences, 2014
The aim of this study is to investigate learners' transforming participation as they enter and engage in a learning community. To do this, we investigated the micro-development of two students' learning and collaborative practices in the context of a unique learning community that was fostered within a graduate level course.…

Rogat, Toni Kempler; Adams-Wiggins, Karlyn R. – Instructional Science: An International Journal of the Learning Sciences, 2014
The current study examines variation in other-regulation, conceptualized as efforts by one student to regulate their group's work. This study extends research which has conceptualized other-regulation as temporarily guiding others' conceptual understanding and skill development by broadening the spectrum of other-regulation to include…

Fastré, Greet M. J.; van der Klink, Marcel R.; Amsing-Smit, Pauline; van Merriënboer, Jeroen J. – Instructional Science: An International Journal of the Learning Sciences, 2014
This study examined the effects of type of assessment criteria (performance-based vs. competency-based), the relevance of assessment criteria (relevant criteria vs. all criteria), and their interaction on secondary vocational education students' performance and assessment skills. Students on three programmes in the domain of nursing and care…

Chabani, Ellahe; Hommel, Bernhard – Instructional Science: An International Journal of the Learning Sciences, 2014
Recent decades have witnessed a growing interest in intervention-based assessment to promote and enhance children's learning. In this study, we explored the potential effect of an experimental visual-spatial intervention procedure and possible training benefits of two prompting modalities: one group received training with verbal and visual…

Van Steendam, Elke; Rijlaarsdam, G. C. W.; Van den Bergh, H. H.; Sercu, L. – Instructional Science: An International Journal of the Learning Sciences, 2014
The present study tests the effect of ability pairing in two instructional methods in L2 collaborative revision. Two continuous indices determine a pair: individual proficiency level, distance in proficiency between pair members (heterogeneity), and the interaction between both indices. Instructional methods tested are modelling and practising.…

Gan, Mark J. S.; Hattie, John – Instructional Science: An International Journal of the Learning Sciences, 2014
This study investigates the effects of prompting on secondary students' written peer feedback in chemistry investigation reports. In particular, we examined students' feedback features in relation to the use of criteria, feedback specificity, and feedback levels. A quasi-experimental pre-test post-test design was adopted. Reviewers in…

Slabon, Wayne A.; Richards, Randy L.; Dennen, Vanessa P. – Instructional Science: An International Journal of the Learning Sciences, 2014
In this paper, we introduce restorying, a pedagogical approach based on social constructivism that employs successive iterations of rewriting and discussing personal, student-generated, domain-relevant stories to promote conceptual application, critical thinking, and ill-structured problem solving skills. Using a naturalistic, qualitative case…

Lai, Kevin; White, Tobin – Instructional Science: An International Journal of the Learning Sciences, 2014
This paper presents a small group computing environment in which four students each control a different point in a geometric space, such that as a group they collectively manipulate the vertices of a quadrilateral. Prior research has revealed that students have considerable difficulty in learning about the interrelationships among quadrilaterals…

Ifenthaler, Dirk; Gosper, Maree – Instructional Science: An International Journal of the Learning Sciences, 2014
This paper introduces the MAPLET framework that was developed to map and link teaching aims, learning processes, learner expertise and technologies. An experimental study with 65 participants is reported to test the effectiveness of the framework as a guide to the design of lessons embedded within larger units of study. The findings indicate the…
