In der Zahlenstrahlschätzaufgabe sehen die Probanden eine Zahl und einen leeren Zahlenstrahl, bei dem nur die erste und die letzte Position markiert und mit ihrem Wert beschriftet sind. Die Aufgabe der Probanden besteht darin, die Position der Zahl auf dem Strahl anzugeben. Der vorherrschende Ansatz in der Literatur geht davon aus, dass diese Aufgabe die Qualität der mentalen Repräsentation numerischer Größen erfasst. Diese gibt Lernen ein Verständnis von numerischen Größen und ihren Interrelationen, das eine wichtige Grundlage für den Erwerb anspruchsvollerer mathematischer Kompetenzen z.B. in Arithmetik oder Algebra darstellt. Zahlreiche Studien fanden positive Korrelationen zwischen der Zahlenstrahlschätzfähigkeit und der Mathematikleistung. Daher bietet es sich an, die Zahlenstrahlschätzaufgabe zur Diagnostik mathematischer Leistung und Entwicklung zu nutzen. Jedoch ist zum einen noch unklar, wie die Zahlstrahlschätzfähigkeit in der Population ausgeprägt und verteilt ist. Zum anderen ist offen, inwieweit die Korrelation mit der Mathematikleistung eine Scheinkorrelation darstellt, die auf den Einfluss anderer Personeneigenschaften zurückgeht. Um diese Punkte zu klären, analysierten wir Daten aus einer Vollerhebung aller Neuntklässler in Luxemburg (N = 6484). Die Schüler lösten die Zahlenstrahlschätzaufgabe mit ganzen Zahlen sowie Brüchen, absolvierten einen standardisierten Mathematikleistungstest und beantworteten zahlreiche Fragen zu domänenspezifischen (Matheängstlichkeit, Selbstkonzept, Interesse, Testmotivation) und domänenübergreifenden (Geschlecht, Immigrationsstatus, Gewissenhaftigkeit und elterlicher sozioökonomischer Status) Personenmerkmalen. Wir dokumentierten Mittelwerte und Verteilungseigenschaften der Zahlenstrahlschätzfähigkeit für diverse Subpopulationen (Jungen, Mädchen, Migranten, Schulformen etc.). Die Ergebnisse von Mehrebenenregressionsmodellen zeigten, dass die Zahlenstrahlschätzfähigkeit erheblich enger als alle anderen erhobenen Personeneigenschaften mit der Mathematikleistung zusammenhing. Der Zusammenhang war stärker für das Schätzen von Brüchen als ganzen Zahlen. Die Ergebnisse bestätigen die Annahme, dass die Zahlenstrahlschätzfähigkeit eine zentrale Komponente mathematischen Vorwissens erfasst, die weiteres Lernen leitet. In Anbetracht der einfachen Handhabung kann die Aufgabe vielfältig eingesetzt werden, um die mathematische Leistung in der Schule zu messen oder vorherzusagen. Zukünftige Studien sollten verstärkt die Nutzung der Aufgabe in Interventionen erproben. [less ▲]

Many studies focussing on spelling in French and German languages show that, even by the end of the primary school, pupils have difficulties to encode morphosyntactic information in their writing. Particularly problematic are, for instance, capitalisation of nouns in German (Betzel 2014) or plural markers in French (Fayol et al. 2006), because they are inaudible and require knowledge that goes beyond simple phoneme-grapheme correspondences. Our paper presents how multilingual learners deal with silent morphosyntactic markers in French and German and shows the effects of an intervention training on children's spelling performance. In total our study included 228 multilingual fifth graders (mean age 11 years) with four years instruction in German and two years instruction in French. They were assigned to an intervention (n=137) and to a control group (n=91) based on the results of a spelling test in French and German. This was done by creating performance groups that were, in a second step, attributed to one of the experimental groups taking their performance into account (quasi-randomised procedure). The French test consisted of three word categories of different difficulty (nouns, verbs, adjectives). For adjectives only, position (pre- vs. post-nominal) was also manipulated. The German test focussed on three lexical-semantic characteristics (concrete nouns, abstract nouns, nominalizations) and four syntactical positions (determinant+noun, determinant+adjective+noun, adjective+noun, noun) frequent words and pseudo-words. Additionally, word frequency was manipulated within each language (frequent words vs. pseudowords). These difficulty levels have been based on the literature published on monolingual learners (French: Totereau et al. (2014), German: Funke (2005); Guenther (2007); Betzel (2014)). The children participated in 12 intervention sessions of 20 minutes each (six in German and six in French, the order was counterbalanced). Children of the intervention group were trained to improve their morphosyntactic awareness and thus spelling performance of French plurals and German capitalization. The control group received the same amount of language input than the intervention group, but they were trained on another aspect of language i.e. listening comprehension. Results from the pre-test show that multilingual children acquiring German and French show similar difficulty patterns as German or French monolinguals. The post-test shows that the intervention group improved significantly in both their German and French spelling in comparison to the control group in all word and pseudo-word categories and positions. The intervention group's performance increased especially on pseudo-words, indicating that the training had an effect on children's spelling according to syntactic regularities. The study results are specifically important to better understand the learning processes of morphosyntactic spelling in primary school. The implications on the teaching methods will be discussed.

The purpose of our project MorphoSyn is to gain insights into the morphosyntactic processing involved in spelling in second languages. We conduct our study in the complex language context of Luxembourg which has two written school languages (German and French) and a large variety languages spoken at children´s home. More specifically, we investigate how an explicit teaching of morphosyntactic structures in written German and French enhance the spelling competence of 5th grade students. During our intervention we focus on two orthographic features: the capitalisation of nouns in German and subject-verb agreement and the agreement within nouns phrases in French. Studies from Germany and France show that the acquisition of these features pass quite difficultly, because they are inaudible and, to grasp them, students need knowledge that goes beyond phoneme-grapheme correspondences. We predicted that our multilingual pupils will encounter the same problems that have been detected for French and German monolingual children. Our recently conducted pilot study confirmed this assumption: many children still omit plural/feminine markers in French and fail to capitalize abstract nouns or nominalisations in German. Our paper will present the outcome of the pre-test administrated to 250 Luxembourgish students (listening comprehension and dictation in German and French). It will show the orthographic skills pupils have acquired during primary school in their school languages German and French and indicate how far they are using morphosyntactic information while spelling.

How do multilingual learners write spellings related to morphosyntactic information in German (capitalisation of nouns) and French (plural markers of nouns, adjectives and verbs)? Our talk presents the construction and the items of a spelling test of German and French for multilingual 5th graders in Luxembourg (N=300) as well as the first results of both tests. It is the pre-test of a study that will analyse the processes of morphosyntactic agreement in spelling in the children’s first (German) and second (French) acquired language at school. It will further examine how their performances relate to their language background. The setting in Luxembourg is characterised by three school languages: While Luxembourgish is the language of pre-school, children are alphabetised in German and learn French from second grade on. German and French are second languages for most children. However, children have either a Germanic (Luxembourgish) or a Romance (Portuguese) background. The children performed spellings tests tailored to the specificities of each of the test languages but relying on comparable grammatical processes. The test framework will be presented in detail as well as first results. Based on the literature, we expect differences in performances for proper and abstract nouns as well as nominalisation with best performance for proper nouns. In French, we expect differences in performances according to the plural markers of nouns, adjectives and verbs with best performance for nouns. Additionally, we expect contextual effects of the target words within each language. Results will further be analysed according to the background language of the children. [less ▲]

Learning mathematics in a second language is a challenge for many learners. The purpose of the study was to provide new insights into the role of the language context in mathematic learning and more particularly arithmetic problem solving. We investigated this question in a GermaneFrench bilingual educational setting in Luxembourg. Participants with increasing bilingual proficiency levels were invited to solve additions in both their first and second instruction languages: German and French. Arithmetic problems were presented in two different conditions: preceded by a semantic judgment or without additional language context. In the French session we observed that additions were systematically performed faster in the condition with an additional language context. In contrast no effect of the context was observed in the German session. In conclusion, providing a language context enhanced arithmetic performances in bilinguals' second instruction language. This finding entails implications for designing optimal mathematic learning environments in multilingual educational settings. [less ▲]
