Ceuppens, Stijn; Bollen, Laurens; Deprez, Johan; Dehaene, Wim; De Cock, Mieke – Physical Review Physics Education Research, 2019
We design, validate, and administer a 24-item test to study student understanding of linear functions in 1D kinematics [x(t)] and mathematics [y(x)] in the 9th grade. The items assess identification and comparison of initial position and velocity in 1D kinematics and of the y intercept and slope in mathematics using a graph or an algebraic…

Mathys, Cécile; Véronneau, Marie-Hélène; Lecocq, Aurélie – Journal of Early Adolescence, 2019
This study tested whether grade retention at the transition into secondary school had a significant impact on adolescent psychosocial adjustment. A quasi-experimental design was used in which propensity score matching was implemented. Univariate ANCOVAs were subsequently run on a subsample of 181 students enrolled in one typical secondary school…

Van Heel, Martijn; Van Den Noortgate, Wim; Bijttebier, Patricia; Colpin, Hilde; Goossens, Luc; Verschueren, Karine; Van Leeuwen, Karla – Developmental Psychology, 2019
Previous studies often assumed that parenting practices are similar across families. This assumption is difficult to hold, especially throughout adolescence, a period of major change for both adolescents and their parents. By combining a person-centered and a variable-centered approach, the present study adds to the literature by identifying…

Danhier, Julien; Friant, Nathanaël – European Educational Research Journal, 2019
Assuming that free school choice is one of the parameters contributing to segregation in the Belgian educational system, the government implemented decrees to alter school enrolment policies in order to regulate school choice. In this study, two statistical approaches (a 'Lorenz' index and a multilevel one) have been used to measure the evolution…

Casteleyn, Jordi – Research in Drama Education, 2019
Students in secondary education often suffer from public speaking stress, but formal education does not provide any means to support the battle with this anxiety. This study aims at decreasing public speaking stress and increasing public speaking competence via an innovative intervention program that is rooted in the principles of…

OECD Publishing, 2019
Problems associated with the environment loom large over the future well-being of young generations. A previous issue of PISA in Focus (PISA in Focus 87) shows that in 2015 many 15-year-old students believed that the future -- their future -- was going to be worse, environmentally, than the present. In particular, only a minority of students…

Goovaerts, Leen; De Cock, Mieke; Struyven, Katrien; Dehaene, Wim – European Journal of STEM Education, 2019
High level, abstract engineering thinking and design is a subject that is hardly addressed in current curricula for secondary education. This is contradictory to the increasing need for more in depth STEM education in secondary schools dictated by the evolution of our society towards an ever more STEM based information society. In this paper an…

Goovaerts, Leen; De Cock, Mieke; Struyven, Katrien; Dehaene, Wim – European Journal of STEM Education, 2019
In order to motivate secondary school pupils for STEM studies and professions, a teaching approach with a focus on integration of STEM components is developed. This paper focuses on the integration of physics and mathematics into an engineering design problem in K10 education, namely building and heating a model of a passive house with a sun…

Rogiers, Amélie; Merchie, Emmelien; Van Keer, Hilde – Journal of Educational Research, 2019
The authors explore the occurrence of different learner profiles in secondary education, as well as their relationship with test performance and student characteristics. Based on a cluster analysis of 1,931 secondary school students' self-reported text-learning strategy use and study traces, the authors identified and validated four distinct…

Danneel, Sofie; Colpin, Hilde; Goossens, Luc; Engels, Maaike; Van Leeuwan, Karla; Van Den Noorgate, Wim; Verschueren, Karine – Merrill-Palmer Quarterly: Journal of Developmental Psychology, 2019
In this study, the effects of peer acceptance and rejection on global self-esteem and emotional school engagement in adolescents were investigated. Moreover, in line with the differential susceptibility hypothesis, we examined the potential moderating effect of a polymorphism in the serotonin receptor gene (i.e., 5-HTTLPR). The sample consisted of…

Struyf, Annemie; De Loof, Haydée; Boeve-de Pauw, Jelle; Van Petegem, Peter – International Journal of Science Education, 2019
In this paper, we explore how students' engagement varies in different STEM (Science, Technology, Engineering, Mathematics) learning environments. More specifically, we focus on the significance of a learning environment applying an integrated STEM (iSTEM) approach and the significance of STEM learning environments' student-centredness. Moreover,…

Dockx, Jonas; De Fraine, Bieke – School Effectiveness and School Improvement, 2019
Most studies on the effects of tracks during secondary education focus on specific short-term academic performance indicators. This study compared the effects of tracks on long-term unemployment from 1995 to 2015, using a Flemish longitudinal cohort study (4,333 students in 54 schools). Tracks in Flanders have a hierarchy in mean academic ability.…

Dockx, Jonas; De Fraine, Bieke; Vandecandelaere, Machteld – Journal of Educational Psychology, 2019
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…

Hemmerechts, Kenneth; Kavadias, Dimokritos; Agirdag, Orhan – Journal of Beliefs & Values, 2018
A body of scholarly work has emerged on educational expectations. More recently, the relationship between educational expectations and immigrant background in Western Europe has been investigated. Although the results of this type of inquiry show that students with an immigrant background tend to have higher educational expectations, potential…

Agasisti, Tommaso; Avvisati, Francesco; Borgonovi, Francesca; Longobardi, Sergio – OECD Publishing, 2018
Resilience refers to the capacity of individuals to prosper despite encountering adverse circumstances. This paper defines academic resilience as the ability of 15-year-old students from disadvantaged backgrounds to perform at a certain level in the Programme for International Student Assessment (PISA) in reading, mathematics and science that…
