Stamovlasis, D.; Kypraios, N.; Papageorgiou, G. – Science Education International, 2015
In this study, structural equation modeling (SEM) is applied to an instrument assessing students' understanding of chemical change. The instrument comprised items on understanding the structure of substances, chemical changes and their interpretation. The structural relationships among particular groups of items are investigated and analyzed using…

Mouratidis, Athanasios; Barkoukis, Vassilis; Tsorbatzoudis, Charalambos – European Physical Education Review, 2015
Self-determination theory posits that satisfaction of the needs for autonomy, competence and relatedness represents the basic nutriments for humans' optimal functioning. It also postulates that with greater the degree to which these three needs are equally satisfied, the quality of motivation is further enhanced. Yet, this premise has remained…

Kypraios, Nikolaos; Papageorgiou, George; Stamovlasis, Dimitrios – International Journal of Environmental and Science Education, 2014
In this study, students' understanding of chemical changes was investigated in relation to four individual differences, related to logical thinking, field dependence/independence, convergence and divergence thinking. The study took place in Greece with the participation of students (n = 374) from three grades (8th, 10th and 12th grades) of…

Georgiou, George K.; Manolitsis, George; Zhang, Xiao; Parrila, Rauno; Nurmi, Jari-Erik – International Journal of Behavioral Development, 2013
We examined the developmental dynamics between task-avoidant behavior and different literacy outcomes, and possible precursors of task-avoidant behavior. Seventy Greek children were followed from Grade 4 until Grade 6 and were assessed every year on reading fluency, spelling, and reading comprehension. The teachers assessed the children's…

Stamovlasis, Dimitrios; Tsitsipis, Georgios; Papageorgiou, George – Chemistry Education Research and Practice, 2012
In this study, structural equation modeling (SEM) is applied to an instrument assessing students' understanding of the particulate nature of matter, the collective properties and physical changes, such as melting, evaporation, boiling and condensation. The structural relationships among particular groups of items were investigated. In addition,…

Papantoniou, Georgia; Moraitou, Despina; Katsadima, Effie; Dinou, Magda – Electronic Journal of Research in Educational Psychology, 2010
Introduction: The present study examined the effect of action control (i.e., disengagement, initiative, and persistence) and dispositional hope (i.e., pathways thought, and agency thinking) on self-regulated learning strategy use (i.e., cognitive, metacognitive, and resource management) and course achievement. Method: A total of 275 undergraduate…

Tsitsipis, Georgios; Stamovlasis, Dimitrios; Papageorgiou, George – International Journal of Science Education, 2010
In this study, students' understanding of the structure of matter and its changes of state such as melting, evaporation, boiling, and condensation was investigated in relation to three cognitive variables: logical thinking (LTh), field dependence/independence, and convergence/divergence dimension. The study took place in Greece with the…

Gonida, Eleftheria N.; Kiosseoglou, Grigoris; Voulala, Katerina – European Journal of Psychology of Education, 2007
The aim of this study was twofold: (a) to examine student perceptions of their parent goals and their achievement goal orientations across adolescence, and (b) to examine how perceived parent goals relate to student achievement goal orientations, and engagement in the classroom (both emotional and behavioral) from early to late adolescence. A set…

Hagger, Martin S.; Chatzisarantis, Nikos L. D.; Barkoukis, Vassilis; Wang, C. K. John; Baranowski, Jaroslaw – Journal of Educational Psychology, 2005
This study tested the replicability and cross-cultural invariance of a trans-contextual model of motivation across 4 samples from diverse cultures. The model proposes a motivational sequence in which perceived autonomy support (PAS) in physical education (PE) predicts autonomous motivation, intentions, and behavior in a leisure-time (LT) physical…
