Marsh, Herbert W.; Pekrun, Reinhard; Parker, Philip D.; Murayama, Kou; Guo, Jiesi; Dicke, Theresa; Arens, A. Katrin – Journal of Educational Psychology, 2019
This study extends the classic constructive dialogue/debate between self-concept and self-efficacy researchers (Marsh, Roche, Pajares, & Miller, 1997) regarding the distinctions between these 2 constructs. The study is a substantive-methodological synergy, bringing together new substantive, theoretical, and statistical models and developing…

Garn, Alex C.; Morin, Alexandre J. S.; Lonsdale, Chris – Journal of Educational Psychology, 2019
Student motivation research seeks to uncover greater understanding of when, how, and why students succeed or fail in school settings. Self-determination theory has been at the forefront of helping educational stakeholders answer questions on student motivation. This study investigates the motivation mediation model proposed by self-determination…

Schachner, Maja K.; Schwarzenthal, Miriam; van de Vijver, Fons J. R.; Noack, Peter – Journal of Educational Psychology, 2019
As schools are becoming more culturally diverse, it is crucial to understand how they can approach this diversity in ways that allow all students to feel included and do well. We focus on the manifestation of two related but distinct approaches to cultural diversity, namely "equality and inclusion" (i.e., promoting positive intergroup…

Arens, A. Katrin; Schmidt, Isabelle; Preckel, Franzis – Journal of Educational Psychology, 2019
This study expanded on research on temporal relations among motivation constructs as stated by expectancy-value theory, which has so far neglected the differentiation of value facets, the examination of long time spans with multiple measurement waves, and domain-specific patterns of findings. We examined the longitudinal relations among academic…

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…

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…

Hodis, Flaviu A. – Journal of Educational Psychology, 2018
This article aims to enhance understanding of the nomological network of expectancy of success beliefs related to mathematics. To this end, the paper uses the expectancy-value, regulatory focus, and regulatory mode theoretical frameworks and investigates 3 key classes of motivation predictors: (a) General motivation predispositions that center on…

Kim, Lisa E.; Dar-Nimrod, Ilan; MacCann, Carolyn – Journal of Educational Psychology, 2018
Students' educational outcomes are predicted by their noncognitive characteristics, including Big Five personality domains. Although theories of teaching and learning suggest that teacher noncognitive characteristics also impact student outcomes, such characteristics are rarely studied systematically. We propose that the Big Five personality…

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…

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…

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…

McCrudden, Matthew T.; Stenseth, Tonje; Bråten, Ivar; Strømsø, Helge I. – Journal of Educational Psychology, 2016
This mixed methods study investigated the extent to which author expertise and content relevance were salient to secondary Norwegian students (N = 153) when they selected documents that pertained to more familiar and less familiar topics. Quantitative results indicated that author expertise was more salient for the less familiar topic (nuclear…

Salchegger, Silvia – Journal of Educational Psychology, 2016
A large body of research has demonstrated a big-fish--little-pond effect (BFLPE) by showing that equally able students have lower academic self-concepts in high-ability schools than in low-ability schools. Although the BFLPE generalizes across many countries, it varies significantly between countries. The reasons for this variation are still…

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…
