Herber, Stefanie P.; Kalinowski, Michael – Education Economics, 2019
We estimate the percentage of eligible students who do not take up their federal need-based student financial aid entitlements in a microsimulation model for the German Socio-Economic Panel Study 2002--2013. We find that about 40% of the eligible low-income students do not take up their entitlements. Non-take-up is inversely and rather…

Abel, Magdalena; Haller, Valerie; Köck, Hanna; Pötschke, Sarah; Heib, Dominik; Schabus, Manuel; Bäuml, Karl-Heinz T. – Journal of Experimental Psychology: Learning, Memory, and Cognition, 2019
Retrieval practice relative to restudy of learned material typically attenuates time-dependent forgetting. A recent study examining this testing effect across 12-h delays filled with nocturnal sleep versus daytime wakefulness, however, showed that sleep directly following encoding benefited recall of restudied but not of retrieval practiced items,…

Dai, Yun; Lu, Stephen; Liu, Ang – Interactive Learning Environments, 2019
Based on a two-year ethnographic study of global virtual teams (GVTs) (n = 323) in a technology-enhanced global course among six universities (i.e. U.S., China, South Korea, Germany, Israel, and India), this paper presents "how and in what ways" the participating students made sense of and constructed understandings about the interactive…

Froncek, Benjamin; Rohmann, Anette – American Journal of Evaluation, 2019
Practical-participatory evaluation is often considered an effective approach to enhancing evaluation use. Despite this generally positive connotation, potential negative effects of participatory evaluation have also been discussed in the literature but never empirically investigated before. Drawing upon the social--psychological procedural justice…

Eger, Nikola Anna; Reinisch, Eva – Journal of Experimental Psychology: Learning, Memory, and Cognition, 2019
Second language (L2) learners often speak with a strong accent, which can make them difficult to understand. However, familiarity with an accent enhances intelligibility. We propose that L2 learners are even more familiar with their own accented speech patterns and may thus understand self-produced L2 words better than others' accented…

Röer, Jan Philipp; Bell, Raoul; Körner, Ulrike; Buchner, Axel – Journal of Experimental Psychology: Learning, Memory, and Cognition, 2019
Short-term memory (STM) for serially presented visual items is disrupted by task-irrelevant, to-beignored speech. Five experiments investigated the extent to which irrelevant speech is processed semantically by contrasting the following two hypotheses: (1) semantic processing of irrelevant speech is limited and does not interfere with serial STM…

Aust, Frederik; Haaf, Julia M.; Stahl, Christoph – Journal of Experimental Psychology: Learning, Memory, and Cognition, 2019
Evaluative conditioning (EC) is a change in liking of neutral conditioned stimuli (CS) following pairings with positive or negative stimuli (unconditioned stimulus, US). A dissociation has been reported between US expectancy and CS evaluation in extinction learning: When CSs are presented alone subsequent to CS-US pairings, participants cease to…

Heitmann, Christina; Deutsch, Roland – Journal of Experimental Psychology: Learning, Memory, and Cognition, 2019
Sequential effects in conflict processing (postconflict slowing and conflict adaptation) have primarily been studied in stimulus-response compatibility (SRC) tasks. Moreover, results obtained in SRC paradigms are often proposed as a model of higher-level motivational conflicts. The authors present 3 experiments suggesting that motivational…

Stiller, Anne-Kathrin; Kattner, M. Florian; Gunzenhauser, Catherine; Schmitz, Bernhard – Educational Psychology, 2019
Effectively regulating negative emotions is important for successful self-regulated learning. However, research has hardly examined which emotion regulation strategies benefit self-regulated learning. In an experimental study, it was examined whether positive reappraisal facilitates self-regulated learning by counterbalancing the depletion of…

Mikuláš, Josek; Jitka, Svobodová – Journal of International Students, 2019
This paper examines a large dataset of questionnaire responses (n = 5,321) of international students who have studied abroad (mainly via the Erasmus+ programme). Their acculturation experiences with campus discrimination (an acculturative stressor), academic support (a mediator of acculturation) and academic satisfaction (an outcome of…

Fischer, Elisabeth; Hänze, Martin – Assessment & Evaluation in Higher Education, 2019
To advance the discussion on the validity of student evaluations of university teaching, student ratings of two teaching dimensions -- student involvement and rapport -- were compared with corresponding observer ratings. Seven potential bias variables were tested with regard to their impact on the students' teaching assessment: three teacher…

Harris, Victor W.; Kumaran, Muthusami; Harris, Heidi Jones; Moen, Daniel; Visconti, Brian – Compare: A Journal of Comparative and International Education, 2019
This study was designed to evaluate the effectiveness of the study abroad experience on student multicultural competence (i.e. knowledge and awareness) using the Multicultural Counselling Knowledge and Awareness Scale in two study abroad programmes during four separate yearly excursions. The first study abroad programme incorporated cultural…

Grund, Axel; Schäfer, Nina; Sohlau, Sylvia; Uhlich, Janne; Schmid, Sebastian – Educational Psychology, 2019
In an attempt to exploit the concept of mindfulness for educational contexts, we investigated the role of dispositional mindfulness as an internal resource for the development of situational interest. Using an online questionnaire, we assessed participants' (N = 161, mean age = 30.4 years, 74% female, 66% university students) mindfulness,…

Stiller, Klaus D. – Journal of Educational Multimedia and Hypermedia, 2019
In three experiments, learners used computerized learning material, which consisted of static pictures and on-screen text relating to the physiology of vision in one of two formats. The formats differed in method of access to text. Accessing text by clicking on picture components was hypothesized to produce superior learning to linear access…
