Brinda, Torsten; Napierala, Stephan; Tobinski, David; Diethelm, Ira – Education and Information Technologies, 2019
The ability to categorize concepts is an essential capability for human thinking and action. On the one hand, the investigation of such abilities is the purview of psychology; on the other hand, subject-specific educational research is also of interest, as a number of research works in the field of science education show. For computer science…

Schachner, Maja K.; Schwarzenthal, Miriam; van de Vijver, Fons J. R.; Noack, Peter – Journal of Educational Psychology, 2019
As schools are becoming more culturally diverse, it is crucial to understand how they can approach this diversity in ways that allow all students to feel included and do well. We focus on the manifestation of two related but distinct approaches to cultural diversity, namely "equality and inclusion" (i.e., promoting positive intergroup…

Arens, A. Katrin; Schmidt, Isabelle; Preckel, Franzis – Journal of Educational Psychology, 2019
This study expanded on research on temporal relations among motivation constructs as stated by expectancy-value theory, which has so far neglected the differentiation of value facets, the examination of long time spans with multiple measurement waves, and domain-specific patterns of findings. We examined the longitudinal relations among academic…

Beicht, Ursula; Walden, Günter – International Journal for Research in Vocational Education and Training, 2019
Context: For young people with a migrant background in Germany transition from school to company-based vocational training is much more difficult than for non-migrants. This remains true, when data is controlled for the lower performance of young migrants in general education. In this paper we investigate if and how far the chances of transition…

Toader, Andra F.; Cantner, Uwe; Kessler, Thomas – Creativity Research Journal, 2019
This study developed a model of team mental models' influence on team adaptive performance at different stages. It proposed that mental models have different relationships with adaptive performance as a function of the performance stage when teams experience changes: early on (i.e., during situation assessment) more divergent mental models are…

Daumiller, Martin; Dresel, Markus – Journal of Experimental Education, 2019
Studying with digital media, learners often struggle because of inadequate self-regulation.
