Boileau, Laurence; Gaudreau, Patrick; Gareau, Alexandre; Chamandy, Melodie – British Journal of Educational Psychology, 2021
Background: Feelings of satisfaction fluctuate across time and situations, and focusing on within-person experiences opens up the door to a better understanding of the daily lives of university students. Aims: Our overarching goal was to situate academic satisfaction not only as a relatively enduring characteristic but also as a transient state…

Likhanov, Maxim V.; Tsigeman, Elina S.; Papageorgiou, Kostas A.; Akmalov, Aydar F.; Sabitov, Ildar A.; Kovas, Yulia V. – British Journal of Educational Psychology, 2021
Background: Individual differences in personality, behavioural, and academic outcomes of gifted adolescents remain under-explored. Aims: The present study directly compared selected and unselected adolescents on multiple measures of personality, behavioural strengths and difficulties, and achievement. Sample: Nine hundred seventy-three adolescents…

Li, Hui; Liu, Jian; Zhang, Dan; Liu, Hongyun – British Journal of Educational Psychology, 2021
Background: Previous studies have suggested that teachers' frequent use of cognitive activation strategies in mathematics lessons is positively associated with students' mathematics achievement. Aims: This study aims to investigate the possible mediating role of mathematics self-efficacy in the association between cognitive activation and…

Lazarides, Rebecca; Raufelder, Diana – British Journal of Educational Psychology, 2021
Background: Students' self-concept of ability is an important predictor of their achievement emotions. However, little is known about how learning environments affect these interrelations. Aims: Referring to Pekrun's control-value theory, this study investigated whether teacher-reported teaching quality at the classroom level would moderate the…

Becherer, Julia; Köller, Olaf; Zimmermann, Friederike – British Journal of Educational Psychology, 2021
Background: Although many studies have suggested that students' externalizing (aggressive and rule-breaking) behaviour is detrimental to their academic achievement, the underlying mechanisms have rarely been investigated. Aims: We conducted a longitudinal investigation of whether the negative relation between externalizing behaviour and academic…

Fazio, Denise; Ferrari, Livia; Testa, Silvia; Tamburrelli, Federica; Marra, Emma; Biancardi, Marta; Palladino, Paola; Marzocchi, Gian Marco – British Journal of Educational Psychology, 2021
Background: Children with dyslexia often show second-language reading and writing difficulties, but the cognitive mechanisms connected to this impairment need to be clarified. Aims: The present study examined the neuropsychological mechanisms underlying learning English as a foreign language in 4th- to the 8th-grade Italian students showing…

Babayigit, Selma; Roulstone, Sue; Wren, Yvonne – British Journal of Educational Psychology, 2021
Background: Linguistic comprehension and narrative skills encapsulate a complex array of grammatical and semantic skills that underpin complex reading comprehension processes. However, most research in this area has focused on children with reading difficulties and not on typically developing children. Also the research has mostly focused on…

Hasty, Leslie M.; Malanchini, Margherita; Shakeshaft, Nicholas; Schofield, Kerry; Malanchini, Maddalena; Wang, Zhe – British Journal of Educational Psychology, 2021
Background: High academic anxiety is associated with poor academic performance. One proposed mechanism of this association is that academic anxiety promotes learning avoidance behaviours, which in turn hinders students' opportunities to learn and grow. However, this proposition has not been thoroughly examined, particularly in afterschool learning…

King, Ronnel B.; Cai, Yuyang; Du, Hongfei – British Journal of Educational Psychology, 2021
Background: Expectancy-value theory posits that higher levels of utility-value yield better achievement outcomes. Much of the existing research on utility value has focused on the individual as the unit of analysis. Person-culture fit theory, however, suggests that it is also important to consider the fit between the person and the broader society…

Nouwens, Suzan; Groen, Margriet A.; Kleemans, Tijs; Verhoeven, Ludo – British Journal of Educational Psychology, 2021
Background: Executive functions have been proposed to account for individual variation in reading comprehension beyond the contributions of decoding skills and language skills. However, insight into the direct and indirect effects of multiple executive functions on fifth-grade reading comprehension, while accounting for decoding and language…

van Leest, Anne; Hornstra, Lisette; van Tartwijk, Jan; van de Pol, Janneke – British Journal of Educational Psychology, 2021
Background: There are concerns that school track recommendations that are mostly based on teachers' judgements of students' performance ('judgement-based recommendations') are more biased by students' SES than school track recommendations that are mostly based on standardized test results ('test-based recommendations'). A recent policy reform of…

Lee, You-kyung; Seo, Eunjin – British Journal of Educational Psychology, 2021
Background: Students' motivation generally declines over time. Some researchers have suggested that the parallel decline in academic self-efficacy and values may be as a result of the longitudinal reciprocal relations between these two motivational constructs. However, little empirical evidence has supported this speculation. Further, all prior…

Miller, Chyna J.; Perera, Harsha N.; Maghsoudlou, Alireza – British Journal of Educational Psychology, 2021
Background: Math engagement research has been largely limited to examining the unique and additive relations of engagement dimensions with outcomes. However, an emerging perspective is that students may simultaneously invest varying degrees of their distinct energetic resources (e.g., cognitive vs. emotional) in their interactions with the math…

Fischer, Jean-Paul; Thierry, Xavier – British Journal of Educational Psychology, 2021
Background: Young children's mathematics abilities may be divided between symbolic and non-symbolic skills. Lower performance of SES disadvantaged versus advantaged children has already been established in symbolic math. Aim: This study aimed to verify the effect of children's SES category on non-symbolic mathematical (numerical) performance.…

Jiang, Ronghuan; Liu, Ru-de; Star, Jon; Zhen, Rui; Wang, Jia; Hong, Wei; Jiang, Shuyang; Sun, Yan; Fu, Xinchen – British Journal of Educational Psychology, 2021
Background: Too many students persevere in relying upon one (sometimes suboptimal) strategy for solving a wide range of problems, even when they know more efficient strategies. Although many studies have mentioned such phenomena, few studies have examined how emotional factors could affect this type of inflexible perseverance in strategy use.…
