Burns, Emma C.; Martin, Andrew J.; Collie, Rebecca J. – Journal of Educational Psychology, 2019
There is a well-documented developmental decline in engagement among adolescents throughout secondary school. Given this pattern of engagement poses problems for both student well-being and their academic outcomes, it is important to examine potential strategies to address this decline. As a growth-oriented strategy, personal best (PB) goal…

Cheon, Sung Hyeon; Reeve, Johnmarshall; Lee, Youngsun; Ntoumanis, Nikos; Gillet, Nicolas; Kim, Bo Ram; Song, Yong-Gwan – Journal of Educational Psychology, 2019
We propose that students experience "autonomy dissatisfaction" when the learning environment is indifferent to their psychological need for autonomy. We hypothesized that (a) students could distinguish this newly proposed need state from both autonomy satisfaction and autonomy frustration, (b) autonomy dissatisfaction would explain…

Ruzek, Erik A.; Schenke, Katerina – Journal of Educational Psychology, 2019
Understanding how classrooms influence a student's motivation and engagement is a persistent concern in the field of educational psychology. Social-cognitive theories postulate that individual students' perceptions of their environment influence their motivation and subsequent behavior. However, empirical research directly testing the core tenets…

This study compared the effects of being in different tracks during the first 3 years of secondary education on student academic performance. A sample of a longitudinal cohort study in Flanders (3,205 students in 46 schools) was used to describe the learning gains for mathematics and reading comprehension. Four tracks were distinguished, with a…

Sachisthal, Maien S. M.; Jansen, Brenda R. J.; Peetsma, Thea T. D.; Dalege, Jonas; van der Maas, Han L. J.; Raijmakers, Maartje E. J. – Journal of Educational Psychology, 2019
In this article, a science interest network model (SINM) is introduced and a first empirical test of the model is presented. The SINM models interest as a dynamic relational construct, in which different interest components, that is, affective, behavioral, and cognitive components and related motivational components mutually reinforce one another…

This diary study provided the first classroom-based empirical test of the relations between student perceptions of high school science teachers' various autonomy supporting and thwarting practices and students' motivation and engagement on a daily basis over the course of an instructional unit. Perceived autonomy supporting practices were…

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…

Dumont, Hanna; Protsch, Paula; Jansen, Malte; Becker, Michael – Journal of Educational Psychology, 2017
In this study, we analyzed how secondary school tracking relates to students' self-beliefs (i.e., their academic self-concepts in different domains and their beliefs regarding their labor market chances) and school disengagement during a time period that has received little attention in educational psychological research on tracking: when students…

Muenks, Katherine; Wigfield, Allan; Yang, Ji Seung; O'Neal, Colleen R. – Journal of Educational Psychology, 2017
Duckworth, Peterson, Matthews, and Kelly (2007) defined "grit" as one's passion and perseverance toward long-term goals. They proposed that it consists of 2 components: consistency of interests and perseverance of effort. In a high school and college student sample, we used a multidimensional item response theory approach to examine (a)…

Vollet, Justin W.; Kindermann, Thomas A.; Skinner, Ellen A. – Journal of Educational Psychology, 2017
This study focused on the joint effects of teachers and peer groups as predictors of change in students' engagement during the first year of middle school, when the importance of peer relationships normatively increases and the quality of teacher-student relationships typically declines. To explore cumulative and contextualized joint effects, the…

Martin, Andrew J.; Papworth, Brad; Ginns, Paul; Malmberg, Lars-Erik – Journal of Educational Psychology, 2016
Most educational climate research is conducted among (day school) students who spend the bulk of their young lives outside of school, potentially limiting the amount of climate variance that can be captured. Boarding school students, on the other hand, spend much of their lives at school and thus offer a potentially unique perspective on…

Poorthuis, Astrid M. G.; Juvonen, Jaana; Thomaes, Sander; Denissen, Jaap J. A.; de Castro, Bram Orobio; van Aken, Marcel A. G. – Journal of Educational Psychology, 2015
Receiving report card grades is psychologically salient to most students and can elicit a range of affective reactions. A 3-wave longitudinal study examined how grades shape students' (N = 375; M age at Wave 1 = 12.6 years) school engagement through the affective reactions they elicit. Emotional and behavioral engagement were measured at the start…

Reeve, Johnmarshall; Lee, Woogul – Journal of Educational Psychology, 2014
Changes in motivation anticipate changes in engagement, but the present study tested the reciprocal relation that changes in students' classroom engagement lead to corresponding longitudinal changes in their classroom motivation. Achievement scores and multiple measures of students' course-specific motivation (psychological need satisfaction,…
