Abstract: My students in developmental algebra not only struggle with factoring quadratics,
but also often refuse to even try to learn the methods because of past failure.
This semester they were encouraged to at least try to factor
by a point system that gave partial credit for small successes:
for example, credit was given for correctly identifying the number of parentheses needed in the solution.

Abstract: Low empathy is a key individual difference proposed to have an impact on the likelihood of offending. The main aim of this paper was to investigate whether low empathy is best considered a risk factor, a promotive factor, an interactive protective factor or was unrelated to self-reported offending in a sample of 720 adolescents. The results suggested that empathy was a risk factor for frequent and serious offending but also had interactive protective effects for certain offenses. In addition the results differed considerably for males and females.

Abstract: Previous research has defined audience behaviors that combine media use with other media as multiple media use while combining media with non-media activity as multitasking. This study examines (a) the prevalence and patterns of multiple media use and multitasking and (b) the media and audience factors that influence such behaviors. Consistent with previous research, this study found that youth use multiple media multitask with media frequently. In addition, the study data suggest that media factors including ownership of media in bedrooms, and audience factors particularly sensation seeking personality are significant predictors of using multiple media and multitasking. The theoretical and practical implications of the study are further discussed.

Abstract: Although the majority of criminal cases result in plea agreements, little is known about the factors that influence whether cases are plea bargained or go to trial. Research suggests that evidence strength may influence attorneys’ plea decisions. Eyewitness evidence is common in criminal cases, though it is unclear whether attorneys are sensitive to eyewitness evidence quality. Attorneys read a case in which the identification quality and other legal factors (e.g., criminal record, pretrial publicity, crime severity) were manipulated and decided whether to offer/recommend a plea. Prosecutors and defenders were sensitive to identification quality, although this factor did not influence plea decisions.

Abstract: Gender differences in emotion regulation are well-documented with females generally reporting a wider range of strategies than males and, the use of more adaptive strategies is linked to better outcomes (Garnefski, Teerds, Kraaji, Legestee & van den Kommer, 2004; Nolen-Hoeksema & Aldao, 2011). The importance of parental socialization in emotion regulation cannot also be ignored. Further, studies with African American samples have demonstrated that caregiver emotion meta-physiology is not only related to child emotion regulation but also to basic emotion understanding (Cunningham, Kliewer & Garner, 2009). Both emotion regulation and understanding predict internalizing and externalizing behaviors, grades and social skills (Cunningham, et al 2009). Even more alarming are reports which indicate that boys with poor emotion regulation are more susceptible to poor future outcomes (Hill, Degan, Calkins and Keane, 2006). This study sought to identify specific parenting relationship factors contributing to emotion regulation among African American boys. Findings from this study have important implications for intervention.
Data for this study is derived from a longitudinal study exploring the impact of playing chess on executive functioning, behavioral and academic outcomes. The sample includes 118 (mean age in years = 9.19, SD = .79) typically developing 3rd (n = 68, 57.6%), 4th (n= 38, 32.2%) and 5th grade (n = 12, 10.2%) students. Of the total sample 43 (45.26%) were males and 52 (54.74%) were females. Demographic information was obtained from school records as well as family reports. Data from the baseline assessment were used for analyses. Specifically, teacher ratings of emotion regulation on the Behavioral Assessment System for Children, second edition (BASC-2) and, parent ratings on the Parenting Relationships Questionnaire (PRQ: Kamphaus & Reynolds, 2006). The PRQ has seven parenting subscales, including parental involvement, parental communication, parental confidence, attachment, disciplinary practices, satisfaction with school and relational frustration.
Multiple linear regression analyses were conducted to examine whether parenting relationship factors predicted teacher-rated emotion regulation. The overall model was significant F(7,87)=3.50, p=.002,R2=.22 and accounted for 22% of the variance in teacher reported emotion regulation. Follow up univariate analyses indicate that the only significant predictor was relational frustration β=.441, p<.001. Given the fact that boys are more susceptible to the negative effects of poor emotion regulation, we examined whether parenting factors mattered more for boys. Gender was dummy coded with males as the reference category and entered into our model first, followed by relational frustration. The overall model was significant F(2,98)=12.40, p<.001, R2=.22. Both gender and relational frustration were significant predictors ΔF(1,92)=14.64, p<.001,ΔR2=.13, gender β=-.21,p=.033 relational frustration β=.37, p<.001. Follow-up analyses indicate that relational frustration has greater impact on the emotion regulation of boys. This has implications for the role of parents in interventions seeking to foster good emotion regulation among children and more especially African American boys.
