Self ‐Concept Predicts Academic Achievement Across Levels of the Achievement Distribution: Domain Specificity for Math and Reading

This study examines whether self‐concept of ability in math and reading predicts later math and reading attainment across different levels of achievement. Data from three large‐scale longitudinal data sets, the Avon Longitudinal Study of Parents and Children, National Institute of Child Health and Human Development–Study of Early Child Care and Youth Development, and Panel Study of Income Dynamics–Child Development Supplement, were used to answer this question by employing quantile regression analyses. After controlling for demographic variables, child characteristics, and early ability, the findings indicate that self‐concept of ability in math and reading predicts later achievement in each respective domain across all quantile levels of achievement. These results were replicated across the three data sets representing different populations and provide robust evidence for the role of self‐concept of ability in understanding achievement from early childhood to adolescence across the spectrum of performance (low to high).

We would like to thank Drs. Lapostolle, Lecomte, Arnaudet, Javaudin, Pes, and Petrovic for their thoughtful comments regarding our paper “Ultrasound use during cardiopulmonary resuscitation is associated with delays in chest compressions.” They raise several important points regarding the paper that warrant clarification.

I read with interest the article by Goto et al. [1] assessing whether bystander compression-only cardiopulmonary resuscitation (CPR) is equivalent to conventional CPR in children with out-of-hospital cardiac arrest (OHCA). The study reports that conventional CPR was associated with improved outcomes compared to compression-only CPR in the majority of the subgroups following pediatric (1 –17 years old) OHCA. However, I have some concerns about the conclusion of this article.

Authors: Korkmaz A, Sahin D, Guray U Abstract AIM: Recently fragmented QRS (fQRS) on ECG has been introduced as a predictor of myocardial scarring and myocardial ischemia in coronary artery disease. OBJECTIVE: The aim of this study was to investigate the relationship between fQRS and fractional flow reserve (FFR) results in patients with the intermediate degree of coronary artery stenosis. METHODS: A total of 301 consecutive patients who underwent coronary angiography and FFR measurement for intermediate coronary artery stenosis were included in the study. The study patients were divided into two ...
