This file contains data associated with "Children’s Baseline Working Memory Moderates the Effects of Working Memory Training,” a paper submitted for publication by Lynn Fuchs, Sonya Sterba, Marcia Barnes, and Douglas Fuchs of Vanderbilt University. The primary purpose of this analysis was to investigate whether children’s baseline working memory (B_WM) moderates effects of WM training for improving WM.
In person: in schools
A total of 898 junior high school students in grades 7 to 9 from Ganzhou City, Jiangxi Province, China, were selected for this study with the necessary approvals from both schools and parents. The study was conducted as a group survey with the supervision of a psychology professional, and was administered during class time.
The purpose of this study was to explore the paths by which word-problem intervention, with versus without embedded pre-algebraic reasoning instruction, improved word-problem performance. Students with mathematics difficulty (MD;n304) were randomly assigned to a business-as-usual condition or 1 of 2 variants of word-problem intervention. The pre-algebraic reasoning component targeted relational understanding of the equal sign as well as standard and nonstandard equation solving. Intervention occurred for 16 weeks, 3 times per week, 30 min per session.
Sex differences in the strength of the relations between mathematics anxiety, mathematics attitudes, and mathematics achievement were assessed concurrently in sixth grade (n = 1,091, 545 boys) and longitudinally from sixth to seventh grade (n = 190, 97 boys). Mathematics anxiety was composed of two facets, one associated with evaluations and the other for learning more generally.
Mathematics achievement, attitudes, and anxiety were longitudinally assessed for 342 (169 boys) adolescents from 7th to 9th grade, inclusive, and Latent Growth Curve Models were used to assess the relations among these traits and developmental change in them. Spatial abilities (7th, 8th grade) and trait anxiety (8th, 9th grade) were also assessed and used for control for sex differences in these traits.
These data are children ages 2 through 5, includes preschool, child, and family demographic characters, social and emotional skills, cognitive skills, early math, early reading, and other indicators of kindergarten readiness (e.g., approaches to learning). Data were collected via director child assessments and teacher report. Direct child assessments were collected once in the fall whereas teacher reports were collected once in the fall and once in the spring.
This OSF Project contains the summary statistics and correlations for the variables included in the study. The raw data is not shared. The link includes information from bilingual Xhosa-English and Zulu-English children from South Africa assessed in first grade, and twice in third grade. COVID-19 related school closures affected children in second grade and third grade. The variables include: phonological awareness, rapid automatized naming, phonological working memory, letter reading, word reading, text reading, reading comprehension and spelling.
This file contains data according to two research designs: small scale RCT and a Repeated Acquisition Design (single case research). The vocabulary at the pre- and post- collections were untaught words whereas the weekly probes for the RAD were the taught words of that week.
This dataset is longitudinal in nature, comprising data from school years (2007/2008-2010/2011) following students in grade 1 to grade 4. Measures were chosen to provide a wide array of both reading and writing measures, encompassing reading and writing skills at the word, sentence, and larger passage or text levels. Participants were tested on all measures once a year, approximately one year apart. Participants were first grade students in the fall of 2007 whose parents consented to participate in the longitudinal study.
This dataset contains information from the Florida Progress Monitoring and Reporting Network (PMRN) linked to the Florida Twin Project twins. Data within this set contains information related to progress monitoring reading data and end of year reading achievement testing, student demographics, and school and teacher clusters for the 2003/2004 to 2013/2014 school years.
