The interrelationships of mathematical precursors in kindergarten
(Journal of Experimental Child Psychology, 2011-04)
This study evaluated the interrelations among cognitive precursors across quantitative, linguistic, and spatial attention domains that have been implicated for math achievement in young children. The dimensionality of the ...
Predicting development of mathematical word problem solving across the intermediate grades
(Journal of Educational Psychology, 2012-11)
This study addressed predictors of the development of word problem solving (WPS) across the intermediate grades. At beginning of 3rd grade, 4 cohorts of students (N = 261) were measured on computation, language, nonverbal ...
Do word-problem features differentially affect problem difficulty as a function of students' mathematics difficulty with and without reading difficulty?
(Journal of Learning Disabilities, 2009-03)
This study examined whether and, if so, how word-problem features differentially affect problem difficulty as a function of mathematics difficulty (MD) status: no MD (n = 109), MD only (n = 109), or MD in combination with ...
Cognitive and mathematical profiles for different forms of learning difficulties
(Journal of Learning Disabilities, 2015-03)
The purpose of this study was to compare subgroups of students with various forms of learning difficulties (< 25th percentile) on cognitive and mathematics characteristics. Students with mathematics difficulty (MD, n = ...
