Poliandri, Donatella; Sette, Stefania; Vinci, Emanuela; Romiti, Sara – Journal of Psychoeducational Assessment, 2018
The present study analyzed the factor validity of the Patterns of Adaptive Learning Scale (PALS) to assess students' perceptions of mathematics classroom goal structures. Participants were N = 7,773 Italian students aged from 11 to 15 years (M = 11.97, SD = 0.50). The confirmatory factor analysis replicated a three-factor structure (i.e., mastery,…

Leighton, Jacqueline P.; Tang, Wei; Guo, Qi – Assessment & Evaluation in Higher Education, 2018
The objective of the present study was to better understand a relatively under-researched topic, namely, undergraduate students' attitudes towards mistakes and how their attitudes relate to academic achievement. A series of online surveys were administered to a sample of 207 first- and second-year undergraduate students. Using structural…

Alivernini, Fabio; Manganelli, Sara; Lucidi, Fabio – Journal of Psychoeducational Assessment, 2018
This study examines the factor structures of Personal and Classroom Achievement Goals and the relationships between them. Multilevel structural equation modeling was used to examine data from a sample of 3,544 Italian 10th-grade students (184 classrooms) who completed the Patterns of Adaptive Learning Scales (PALS). Findings about the factor…

DeBacker, Teresa K.; Heddy, Benjamin C.; Kershen, Julianna Lopez; Crowson, H. Michael; Looney, Kristyna; Goldman, Jacqueline A. – Educational Psychology, 2018
This investigation employed a longitudinal design to examine the influence of a one-shot growth mindset intervention on ninth-graders' implicit beliefs about intelligence and related achievement goals in four different samples. The intervention conformed to characteristics of 'wise interventions'. Participants' incremental beliefs about…

Leighton, Jacqueline P.; Bustos Gómez, María Clara – Educational Psychology, 2018
Formative assessments and feedback are vital to enhancing learning outcomes but require that learners feel at ease identifying their errors, and receiving feedback from a trusted source--teachers. An experimental test of a new theoretical framework was conducted to cultivate a pedagogical alliance to enhance students' (a) trust in the teacher, (b)…

Tyler, Kenneth M.; Burris, Jennifer L.; Coleman, Sean T. – Journal of Early Adolescence, 2018
Disruptive classroom behaviors are a major schooling dilemma in urban schools. While several contextual and motivational factors have been statistically associated with disruptive classroom behaviors, one overlooked factor has been home-school dissonance. The current study examined the relationship between 260 middle school students' reports of…

Kaur, Amrita; Noman, Mohammad; Awang-Hashim, Rosna – Assessment & Evaluation in Higher Education, 2018
Students' perception of assessment methods plays a significant role in determining their effort towards learning and their assessment tasks. Similar to the role of goal orientation in predicting students' classroom learning, this study aims to examine how students' goal orientations influence their perception of classroom assessments. Using a…

Jang, Eunice Eunhee; Lajoie, Susanne P.; Wagner, Maryam; Xu, Zhenhua; Poitras, Eric; Naismith, Laura – Journal of Educational Computing Research, 2017
Technology-rich learning environments (TREs) provide opportunities for learners to engage in complex interactions involving a multitude of cognitive, metacognitive, and affective states. Understanding learners' distinct learning progressions in TREs demand inquiry approaches that employ well-conceived theoretical accounts of these multiple facets.…

Aisha, Bibi; Zamri, Sharifa NorulAkmar Syed; Abdallah, Nabeel; Abedalaziz, Mohammad; Ahmad, Mushtaq; Satti, Umbreen – Malaysian Online Journal of Educational Sciences, 2017
In this study, different factors affecting students' differential equations (DEs) solving abilities were explored at pre university level. To explore main factors affecting students' differential equations problem solving ability, articles for a 19-year period, from 1996 to 2015, were critically reviewed and analyzed. It was revealed that…

Micari, Marina; Pazos, Pilar – European Journal of Engineering Education, 2016
This study examined the relationships among peer alignment (the feeling that one is similar in important ways to one's engineering peers), instructor connectedness (the sense that one knows and looks up to academic staff/faculty members in the department), self-efficacy for engineering class work (confidence in one's ability to successfully…

Scheltinga, Peter A. M.; Kuyper, Hans; Timmermans, Anneke C.; van der Werf, Greetje P. C. – Educational Psychology, 2016
The dominant achievement goals (DAGs) of 7,008 students in the third grade of Dutch secondary education (US grade 9) were investigated, based on Elliot & McGregors' 2 × 2 framework (2001), in relation to track-level and motivational variables. We found the mastery-approach goal and the performance-approach goal, generally considered adaptive,…

Harvey, Kristin Emilia; Suizzo, Marie-Anne; Jackson, Karen Moran – Journal of Experimental Education, 2016
The aims of this study were to investigate the effects of discrepancies between teachers' perceptions of students' motivation and students' reports of their motivation on math and English grades and to identify possible gender and ethnic differences. Participants included 215 low-income, ethnic-minority students and their teachers in academically…

Lin-Siegler, Xiaodong; Ahn, Janet N.; Chen, Jondou; Fang, Fu-Fen Anny; Luna-Lucero, Myra – Journal of Educational Psychology, 2016
Students' beliefs that success in science depends on exceptional talent negatively impact their motivation to learn. For example, such beliefs have been shown to be a major factor steering students away from taking science and math courses in high school and college. In the present study, we tested a novel story-based instruction that models how…

Wilson, Travis M.; Zheng, Chanjin; Lemoine, Katherine A.; Martin, Caroline P.; Tang, Yue – Journal of Experimental Education, 2016
Person-centered analyses of achievement goals have been scarce in studies of elementary school children. In this investigation, the authors examined the natural combinations of achievement goals (mastery, performance-approach, performance-avoidance) among 3rd grade students (N = 195) and how clusters differed in self-, teacher-, and peer-reported…
