Devine, Amy; Hill, Francesca; Carey, Emma; Szucs, Dénes – Journal of Educational Psychology, 2018
A negative correlation between math anxiety and mathematics performance is frequently reported. Thus, some may assume that high levels of mathematics anxiety are associated with poor mathematical understanding. However, no previous research has clearly measured the association between mathematics anxiety and mathematical learning disability. To…

Hodis, Flaviu A. – Journal of Educational Psychology, 2018
This article aims to enhance understanding of the nomological network of expectancy of success beliefs related to mathematics. To this end, the paper uses the expectancy-value, regulatory focus, and regulatory mode theoretical frameworks and investigates 3 key classes of motivation predictors: (a) General motivation predispositions that center on…

Brady, Shannon T.; Hard, Bridgette Martin; Gross, James J. – Journal of Educational Psychology, 2018
The idea that test anxiety hurts performance is deeply ingrained in American culture and schools. However, researchers have found that it is actually worry about performance and anxiety--not bodily feelings of anxiety (emotionality)--that impairs performance. Drawing on this insight, anxiety reappraisal interventions encourage the view that…

Kim, Lisa E.; Dar-Nimrod, Ilan; MacCann, Carolyn – Journal of Educational Psychology, 2018
Students' educational outcomes are predicted by their noncognitive characteristics, including Big Five personality domains. Although theories of teaching and learning suggest that teacher noncognitive characteristics also impact student outcomes, such characteristics are rarely studied systematically. We propose that the Big Five personality…

Hernández, Maciel M.; Eisenberg, Nancy; Valiente, Carlos; Thompson, Marilyn S.; Spinrad, Tracy L.; Grimm, Kevin J.; VanSchyndel, Sarah K.; Berger, Rebecca H.; Silva, Kassondra M.; Pina, Armando A.; Southworth, Jody; Gal, Diana E. – Journal of Educational Psychology, 2018
We examined individual trajectories, across four time points, of children's (N = 301) expression of negative emotion in classroom settings and whether these trajectories predicted their observed school engagement, teacher-reported academic skills, and passage comprehension assessed with a standardized measure in first grade. In latent growth curve…

Buhs, Eric S.; Koziol, Natalie A.; Rudasill, Kathleen Moritz; Crockett, Lisa J. – Journal of Educational Psychology, 2018
Young children's temperament was examined as a potential predictor of early adolescent school engagement, with elementary school teacher-child and peer relationships included as potential mediators of these effects. A large national longitudinal dataset (N = 1,032) was used to estimate structural equations models that showed children's social…

Gatzka, Thomas; Hell, Benedikt – Journal of Educational Psychology, 2018
Openness to experience has often been linked to academic achievement because it subsumes traits such as curiosity, open-mindedness, thoughtfulness, and intellectuality. However, recent meta-analyses have reported rather small true correlation estimates. In this article, we first provide a comprehensive rationale for a relationship between openness…

Williams, Cameron John; Dziurawiec, Suzanne; Heritage, Brody – Journal of Educational Psychology, 2018
Despite the widespread prevalence of psychological distress that affects many higher education students, existing student-stress research remains largely atheoretical. To address this gap, this paper applies Siegrist's (1996) effort-reward imbalance model in a theoretical investigation of student stress. We surveyed Australian university students…

Wentzel, Kathryn R.; Muenks, Katherine; McNeish, Daniel; Russell, Shannon – Journal of Educational Psychology, 2018
We examined the mediating role of students' interpersonal and academically related social goals in linking students' perceptions of teacher and peer personal and academic emotional supports to their classroom behavior (prosocial, social responsibility) in a sample of young adolescents (n = 3,092) from 7 schools from the mid-Atlantic, Midwest, and…

Frenzel, Anne C.; Becker-Kurz, Betty; Pekrun, Reinhard; Goetz, Thomas; Lüdtke, Oliver – Journal of Educational Psychology, 2018
Enjoyment is one of the most relevant and frequently experienced discrete emotions for both teachers and students in classroom learning contexts. Based on theories of emotion transmission between interaction partners, we propose a reciprocal effects model linking teachers' and students' enjoyment in class. The model suggests that there are…

Rietdijk, Saskia; van Weijen, Daphne; Janssen, Tanja; van den Bergh, Huub; Rijlaarsdam, Gert – Journal of Educational Psychology, 2018
The aim of this study was to provide insight into the current practice of writing instruction in Dutch primary education, as a stepping stone for designing and implementing sustainable innovations that could satisfy both practitioners and policymakers. We investigated the extent to which three domain-specific approaches--communicative writing,…

Guglielmi, R. Sergio; Brekke, Nancy – Journal of Educational Psychology, 2018
Math proficiency is a strong predictor of postsecondary attainment, yet cross-national comparative assessments show that U.S. students consistently score below many of their peers, especially those in East Asia. Similar math achievement disparities exist across ethnic/racial groups within the U.S., where Asian American students routinely…

Göllner, Richard; Wagner, Wolfgang; Eccles, Jacquelynne S.; Trautwein, Ulrich – Journal of Educational Psychology, 2018
Student ratings of teaching quality have been shown to be powerful predictors of important academic outcome variables. This is the case despite the fact that students from the same classroom can perceive teaching quality quite differently in their own idiosyncratic ways. These differences among students in the same classroom are typically…

Matthews, J. Sharif – Journal of Educational Psychology, 2018
Many adolescent learners have difficulty understanding the relevance of mathematics for their lives. This problem is particularly pernicious among Black and Latino adolescents who often face cultural stigma that can affect their perceived value of mathematics. The present study used concurrent nested mixed methods to explore this issue in 419…

Yachison, Sarah; Okoshken, James; Talwar, Victoria – Journal of Educational Psychology, 2018
While academic dishonesty has been an area of study for numerous decades, research has focused primarily on the perpetrators of cheating and understanding why students cheat. In contrast, little attention has been devoted to examining the reactions of students who witness cheating. The current study investigated undergraduate students' reactions…
