Hübner, Nicolas; Wagner, Wolfgang; Nagengast, Benjamin; Trautwein, Ulrich – School Effectiveness and School Improvement, 2019
In recent decades, several countries have made an effort to increase the enrollment rates and performance of students in science and mathematics by means of mandatory, rigorous course work, which is often referred to as curricular intensification (CI). However, there is a lack of research on intended and unintended effects of CI reforms on…

Berendes, Karin; Vajjala, Sowmya; Meurers, Detmar; Bryant, Doreen; Wagner, Wolfgang; Chinkina, Maria; Trautwein, Ulrich – Journal of Educational Psychology, 2018
An adequate level of linguistic complexity in learning materials is believed to be of crucial importance for learning. The implication for school textbooks is that reading complexity should differ systematically between grade levels and between higher and lower tracks in line with what can be called the systematic complexification assumption.…

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…

Aldrup, Karen; Klusmann, Uta; Lüdtke, Oliver; Göllner, Richard; Trautwein, Ulrich – Journal of Educational Psychology, 2018
Teachers' social support and classroom management are related to secondary students' achievement, domain-specific interest, and self-concept. However, little is known about whether social support and classroom management shape secondary students' general school adjustment beyond these domain-specific outcomes. To investigate this question, we drew…

Bertram, Christiane; Wagner, Wolfgang; Trautwein, Ulrich – American Educational Research Journal, 2017
The present study examined the effectiveness of the oral history approach with respect to students' historical competence. A total of 35 ninth-grade classes (N = 900) in Germany were randomly assigned to one of four conditions--live, video, text, or a (nontreated) control group--in a pretest, posttest, and follow-up design. Comparing the three…

Cambria, Jenna; Brandt, Holger; Nagengast, Benjamin; Trautwein, Ulrich – ZDM: The International Journal on Mathematics Education, 2017
Expectancy-value theory of achievement motivation identifies two classes of beliefs that are important predictors of educational choices and achievement: expectancies and values. It is well known that high achieving peers can have a negative impact on self-concept and other measures of expected success: holding individual achievement constant,…

Häfner, Isabelle; Flunger, Barbara; Dicke, Anna-Lena; Gaspard, Hanna; Brisson, Brigitte M.; Nagengast, Benjamin; Trautwein, Ulrich – Developmental Psychology, 2017
Using a cluster randomized field trial, the present study tested whether 2 relevance interventions affected students' value beliefs, self-concept, and effort in math differently depending on family background (socioeconomic status, family interest (FI), and parental utility value). Eighty-two classrooms were randomly assigned to either 1 of 2…

Guo, Jiesi; Nagengast, Benjamin; Marsh, Herbert W.; Kelava, Augustin; Gaspard, Hanna; Brandt, Holger; Cambria, Jenna; Flunger, Barbara; Dicke, Anna-Lena; Häfner, Isabelle; Brisson, Brigitte; Trautwein, Ulrich – AERA Open, 2016
Drawing on expectancy-value theory, the present study examined the unique contributions of the four major value beliefs and self-concept on achievement, self-reported effort, and teacher-rated behavioral engagement in mathematics. In particular, we examined the multiplicative effects of self-concept and task values on educational outcomes using…

Gaspard, Hanna; Dicke, Anna-Lena; Flunger, Barbara; Häfner, Isabelle; Brisson, Brigitte M.; Trautwein, Ulrich; Nagengast, Benjamin – AERA Open, 2016
One way to address the leaking pipeline toward STEM-related careers (i.e., science, technology, engineering, and mathematics) is to intervene on students' STEM motivation in school. However, a neglected question in intervention research is how such interventions affect motivation in subjects not targeted by the intervention. This question was…

Gaspard, Hanna; Dicke, Anna-Lena; Flunger, Barbara; Schreier, Brigitte; Häfner, Isabelle; Trautwein, Ulrich; Nagengast, Benjamin – Journal of Educational Psychology, 2015
Expectancy-value theory (Eccles et al., 1983) is a prominent approach to explaining gender differences in math-related academic choices, with value beliefs acting as an important explanatory factor. Expectancy-value theory defines 4 value components: intrinsic value, attainment value, utility value, and cost. The present study followed up on…

Gaspard, Hanna; Dicke, Anna-Lena; Flunger, Barbara; Brisson, Brigitte Maria; Häfner, Isabelle; Nagengast, Benjamin; Trautwein, Ulrich – Developmental Psychology, 2015
Interventions targeting students' perceived relevance of the learning content have been shown to effectively promote student motivation within science classes (e.g., Hulleman & Harackiewicz, 2009). Yet, further research is warranted to understand better how such interventions should be designed in order to be successfully implemented in the…

Jonkmann, Kathrin; Thoemmes, Felix; Lüdtke, Oliver; Trautwein, Ulrich – Developmental Psychology, 2014
Based on the social investment principle and theories of social relationship differentiation, the present study was conducted to investigate whether personality differences in high school predict young adults' living arrangements (with roommates or a romantic partner, alone, or staying with parents) 2 years later (selection) and whether these…

Dumont, Hanna; Trautwein, Ulrich; Nagy, Gabriel; Nagengast, Benjamin – Journal of Educational Psychology, 2014
This study examined predictors of the quality of parental homework involvement and reciprocal relations between the quality of parental homework involvement and students' reading achievement and academic functioning in a reading-intensive subject (German). Data from 2,830 students in nonacademic tracks and their parents who were surveyed in both…

Chmielewski, Anna K.; Dumont, Hanna; Trautwein, Ulrich – American Educational Research Journal, 2013
The aim of the present study was to examine how different types of tracking--between-school streaming, within-school streaming, and course-by-course tracking--shape students' mathematics self-concept. This was done in an internationally comparative framework using data from the Programme for International Student Assessment (PISA). After…

Jonkmann, Kathrin; Becker, Michael; Marsh, Herbert W.; Ludtke, Oliver; Trautwein, Ulrich – Learning and Individual Differences, 2012
Equally able students have lower academic self-concepts in high-achieving classrooms than in low-achieving classrooms. This highly general and robust frame of reference effect is widely known as the Big-Fish-Little-Pond Effect (BFLPE; Marsh, 1987). This study contributes to research aiming to identify moderators of the BFLPE by investigating the…
