Marschark, Marc; Edwards, Lindsey; Peterson, Candida; Crowe, Kathryn; Walton, Dawn – Journal of Deaf Studies and Deaf Education, 2019
Theory of Mind--the understanding that people have thoughts, wants, and beliefs that influence their interpersonal behavior--is an aspect of social cognition that develops with consistent, increasing complexity across age groups, languages, and cultures. Observed delays in theory of mind development among deaf children and others has led to a…

Marschark, Marc; Machmer, Elizabeth; Spencer, Linda J.; Borgna, Georgianna; Durkin, Andreana; Convertino, Carol – Journal of Deaf Studies and Deaf Education, 2018
Various studies have examined psychosocial functioning and language abilities among deaf children with and without cochlear implants (CIs). Few, however, have explored how relations among those abilities might change with age and setting. Most relevant studies also have failed to consider that psychosocial functioning among both CI users and…

Marschark, Marc; Kronenberger, William G.; Rosica, Mark; Borgna, Georgianna; Convertino, Carol; Durkin, Andreana; Machmer, Elizabeth; Schmitz, Kathryn L. – Journal of Deaf Studies and Deaf Education, 2017
Two experiments examined relations among social maturity, executive function, language, and cochlear implant (CI) use among deaf high school and college students. Experiment 1 revealed no differences between deaf CI users, deaf nonusers, and hearing college students in measures of social maturity. However, deaf students (both CI users and…

Marschark, Marc; Zettler, Ingo; Dammeyer, Jesper – Journal of Deaf Studies and Deaf Education, 2017
The notion of the Deaf community as a linguistic-cultural minority has been increasingly recognized and studied over the last two decades. However, significant differences of opinion and perspective within that population typically have been neglected in the literature. Social dominance orientation (SDO), a theoretical construct, typically…

Crowe, Kathryn; Marschark, Marc; Dammeyer, Jesper; Lehane, Christine – Journal of Deaf Studies and Deaf Education, 2017
Deaf learners are a highly heterogeneous group who demonstrate varied levels of academic achievement and attainment. Most prior research involving this population has focused on factors facilitating academic success in young deaf children, with less attention paid to older learners. Recent studies, however, have suggested that while factors such…

Albertini, John A.; Marschark, Marc; Kincheloe, Pamela J. – Journal of Deaf Studies and Deaf Education, 2016
Research in discourse reveals numerous cognitive connections between reading and writing. Rather than one being the inverse of the other, there are parallels and interactions between them. To understand the variables and possible connections in the reading and writing of adult deaf students, we manipulated writing conditions and reading texts.…

Marschark, Marc; Sarchet, Thomastine; Trani, Alexandra – Journal of Deaf Studies and Deaf Education, 2016
Deaf individuals have been found to score lower than hearing individuals across a variety of memory tasks involving both verbal and nonverbal stimuli, particularly those requiring retention of serial order. Deaf individuals who are native signers, meanwhile, have been found to score higher on visual-spatial memory tasks than on verbal-sequential…

Dammeyer, Jesper; Marschark, Marc – Journal of Deaf Studies and Deaf Education, 2016
In Scandinavia and some other countries, a bilingual-bicultural approach to deaf education was celebrated in national programs from the mid-1980s until the broad popularity of cochlear implantation in middle 2000s created a shift back to an emphasis on spoken language for many deaf children. At the same time, only a few studies evaluated the…

Marschark, Marc; Spencer, Linda J.; Durkin, Andreana; Borgna, Georgianna; Convertino, Carol; Machmer, Elizabeth; Kronenberger, William G.; Trani, Alexandra – Journal of Deaf Studies and Deaf Education, 2015
It is frequently assumed that deaf individuals have superior visual-spatial abilities relative to hearing peers and thus, in educational settings, they are often considered visual learners. There is some empirical evidence to support the former assumption, although it is inconsistent, and apparently none to support the latter. Three experiments…

Convertino, Carol; Borgna, Georgianna; Marschark, Marc; Durkin, Andreana – Journal of Deaf Studies and Deaf Education, 2014
Deaf learners frequently demonstrate significantly less vocabulary knowledge than hearing age-mates. Studies involving other domains of knowledge, and perhaps deaf learners' academic performance, indicate similar lags with regard to world knowledge. Such gaps often are attributed to limitations on deaf children's incidental learning by…

Knoors, Harry; Marschark, Marc – Journal of Deaf Studies and Deaf Education, 2012
For over 25 years in some countries and more recently in others, bilingual education involving sign language and the written/spoken vernacular has been considered an essential educational intervention for deaf children. With the recent growth in universal newborn hearing screening and technological advances such as digital hearing aids and…

Marschark, Marc; Sarchet, Thomastine; Convertino, Carol M.; Borgna, Georgianna; Morrison, Carolyn; Remelt, Sarah – Journal of Deaf Studies and Deaf Education, 2012
This study explored relations of print exposure, academic achievement, and reading habits among 100 deaf and 100 hearing college students. As in earlier studies, recognition tests for book titles and magazine titles were used as measures of print exposure, college entrance test scores were used as measures of academic achievement, and students…

Borgna, Georgianna; Convertino, Carol; Marschark, Marc; Morrison, Carolyn; Rizzolo, Kathleen – Journal of Deaf Studies and Deaf Education, 2011
Four experiments, each building on the results of the previous ones, explored the effects of several manipulations on learning and the accuracy of metacognitive judgments among deaf and hard-of-hearing (DHH) students. Experiment 1 examined learning and metacognitive accuracy from classroom lectures with or without prior "scaffolding" in the form…

Richardson, John T. E.; Marschark, Marc; Sarchet, Thomastine; Sapere, Patricia – Journal of Deaf Studies and Deaf Education, 2010
In order to better understand academic achievement among deaf and hard-of-hearing students in different educational placements, an exploratory study examined the experiences of postsecondary students enrolled in mainstream programs (with hearing students) versus separate programs (without hearing students) at the same institution. The Course…

Convertino, Carol M.; Marschark, Marc; Sapere, Patricia; Sarchet, Thomastine; Zupan, Megan – Journal of Deaf Studies and Deaf Education, 2009
For both practical and theoretical reasons, educators and educational researchers seek to determine predictors of academic success for students at different levels and from different populations. Studies involving hearing students at the postsecondary level have documented significant predictors of success relating to various demographic factors,…
