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…

Li, Degao; Wang, Shaai; Zhang, Fan; Zhu, Li; Wang, Tao; Wang, Xiaolu – Journal of Deaf Studies and Deaf Education, 2019
Irony comprehension can be a kind of challenge to those who are relatively less skillful in reading. To examine how DHH college students (DCSs) were different from hearing college students (HCSs) in the reading of ironic discourses, we conducted two experiments in the self-paced reading task. In Experiment 1, the statement was either literally…

Freeman, Valerie – Journal of Deaf Studies and Deaf Education, 2018
Speech intelligibility, or how well a speaker's words are understood by others, affects listeners' judgments of the speaker's competence and personality. Deaf cochlear implant (CI) users vary widely in speech intelligibility, and their speech may have a noticeable "deaf" quality, both of which could evoke negative stereotypes or…

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…

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.…

Cheng, Sanyin; Zhang, Li-Fang; Hu, Xiaozhong – Journal of Deaf Studies and Deaf Education, 2016
This study explores how students' thinking styles are related to their university self-efficacy, by administering the Thinking Styles Inventory-Revised II and the University Self-Efficacy Scale to 366 deaf or hard-of-hearing (DHH) and 467 hearing university students in mainland China. Results showed that, among all participants, those with Type I…

Cheng, Sanyin; Zhang, Li-fang – Journal of Deaf Studies and Deaf Education, 2015
This study explores how university students' thinking styles changed over a single academic year by twice administering the Thinking Styles Inventory-Revised II to 256 deaf or hard-of-hearing (DHH) students and 286 hearing students from art and design academic disciplines in China. Results showed that after having studied at the university for one…

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…

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…

Albertini, John A.; Kelly, Ronald R.; Matchett, Mary Karol – Journal of Deaf Studies and Deaf Education, 2012
Research tells us that academic preparation is key to deaf students' success at college. Yet, that is not the whole story. Many academically prepared students drop out during their first year. This study identified entering deaf college students' personal factors as assessed by their individual responses to both the "Noel-Levitz College…

Kelly, Ronald R.; Berent, Gerald P. – Journal of Deaf Studies and Deaf Education, 2011
This research contrasted deaf and hearing students' interpretive knowledge of English sentences containing numeral quantifier phrases and indefinite noun phrases. A multiple-interpretation picture task methodology was used to assess 305 participants' judgments of the compatibility of sentence meanings with depicted discourse contexts.…

Albertini, John; Mayer, Connie – Journal of Deaf Studies and Deaf Education, 2011
For over 30 years, teachers have used miscue analysis as a tool to assess and evaluate the reading abilities of hearing students in elementary and middle schools and to design effective literacy programs. More recently, teachers of deaf and hard-of-hearing students have also reported its usefulness for diagnosing word- and phrase-level reading…

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,…

Berent, Gerald P.; Kelly, Ronald R.; Schmitz, Kathryn L.; Kenney, Patricia – Journal of Deaf Studies and Deaf Education, 2009
This study explored the efficacy of visual input enhancement, specifically "essay enhancement", for facilitating deaf college students' improvement in English grammatical knowledge. Results documented students' significant improvement immediately after a 10-week instructional intervention, a replication of recent research. Additionally, the…
