Heritage, Brody; Mancini, Vincent; Rigoli, Daniela; Piek, Jan – British Journal of Educational Psychology, 2020
Background: The self-concept of children has an impact on later behavioural development and psychopathology; therefore, evidence of the accurate measurement of self-concept is important. Harter and Pike's (1984, "Child Development," 55, 1969) commonly used measure of self-concept, the Pictorial Scale of Perceived Competence and Social…

Background: Bullying and poor theory of mind (ToM) are both considered to negatively impact academic performance. However, it is unclear if they have separate effects. Aim: The aim of the current study was to examine the potentially separate associations of bullying and ToM with academic performance. Sample: A general population sample of 1,170…

Nowland, Rebecca; Qualter, Pamela – British Journal of Educational Psychology, 2020
Background: Much of the literature on school transfers has centred on academic adjustment and/or achievement, but school transfers also involve social adaption. Children who are socially anxious or lack emotional self-efficacy are likely to have difficulties with social aspects of the transition. Aim(s): We examined the influence of social…

Touw, Kirsten W. J.; Vogelaar, Bart; Thissen, Floor; Rovers, Sanne; Resing, Wilma C. M. – British Journal of Educational Psychology, 2020
Background: The need to focus more on children's abilities to change requires new assessment technologies in education. Process-oriented assessment can be useful in this regard. Dynamic testing has the potential to provide in-depth information about children's learning processes and cognitive abilities. Aim: This study implemented a…

Bagnall, Charlotte Louise; Skipper, Yvonne; Fox, Claire Louise – British Journal of Educational Psychology, 2020
Background: Primary-secondary school transition is a major life event for 11-year-old children in the United Kingdom and can also be a stressful period for parents and teachers. However, most research focuses on the impact of transition on children's academic performance and social well-being and we have a limited understanding of their emotional…

Ashworth, Emma; Humphrey, Neil – British Journal of Educational Psychology, 2020
Background: Risk factors for poor school functioning rarely occur in isolation, but instead are likely to cluster together. As they accumulate, cumulative risk theory (CRT) predicts that the likelihood of negative outcomes increases, often disproportionately. Aims: We build upon and extend previous research by (i) examining two critical aspects of…

Zumbrunn, Sharon; Broda, Michael; Varier, Divya; Conklin, Sarah – British Journal of Educational Psychology, 2020
Background: The powerful role of self-efficacy on student achievement is clear. Less clear, however, is our understanding of the specific roles of the different factors of writing self-efficacy on student writing self-regulation and success. Aims: This study expands our knowledge about student writing self-efficacy -- including its dimensions and…

Liu, Yingyi; Wong, Terry Tin-Yau – British Journal of Educational Psychology, 2020
Background: Dot enumeration is the basic mathematics competency in young children and a significant indicator of later mathematics achievement. Aim: The present study focused on (1) how children's dot enumeration ability changed as they progressed from late kindergarten years (K3) to the second year of primary school in Hong Kong (P2), and (2) the…

Zhen, Rui; Liu, Ru-De; Wang, Ming-Te; Ding, Yi; Jiang, Ronghuan; Fu, Xinchen; Sun, Yan – British Journal of Educational Psychology, 2020
Background: The dropout rate of Chinese elementary school students after 2007 rose again. Little research to date has identified individual differences in pathways of academic engagement to discern those at risk of disengagement and dropout from schools, as well as the longitudinal linkages between cognitive beliefs with academic engagement. Aims:…

Zaccoletti, Sonia; Altoè, Gianmarco; Mason, Lucia – British Journal of Educational Psychology, 2020
Background: Reading comprehension can be considered the main learning activity. All learning experiences are infused with emotions; however, to date, few studies have focused on the role of emotional aspects in reading comprehension performance. The impact of emotions on academic achievement is thought to be mediated or moderated by cognitive…

Allen, Katie; Giofrè, David; Higgins, Steve; Adams, John – British Journal of Educational Psychology, 2020
Background: Work surrounding the relationship between visuospatial working memory (WM) and mathematics performance is gaining significant traction as a result of a focus on improving academic attainment. Aims: This study examined the relative contributions of verbal and visuospatial simple and complex WM measures to mathematics in primary school…

Abacioglu, Ceren Su; Volman, Monique; Fischer, Agneta H. – British Journal of Educational Psychology, 2020
Background: Culturally responsive teaching (CRT) has been associated with increased student engagement and achievement. Its practice in classrooms, however, has been shown to be less than optimal. Nonetheless, certain teacher qualities have been suggested to facilitate its practice. Aims: The current study sought quantitative evidence in support…

Zhang, Feng; Jiang, Ying; Ming, Hua; Ren, Yi; Wang, Lei; Huang, Silin – British Journal of Educational Psychology, 2020
Background: Low family socio-economic status (SES) is usually associated with children's poor academic achievement, but the mechanisms underlying this relationship are less understood. Aims: The present study examined the mediating role of parental academic involvement and the moderating role of parental subjective social mobility in this…

Arciuli, Joanne; Emerson, Eric – British Journal of Educational Psychology, 2020
Background: Self-reported school satisfaction is an important indicator of child and adolescent well-being. Few studies have examined how disability, gender, and age affect school satisfaction. Aim: We sought to determine whether the interaction between disability and gender with regard to self-reported school satisfaction might be specific to…

Lenz, Katja; Dreher, Anika; Holzäpfel, Lars; Wittmann, Gerald – British Journal of Educational Psychology, 2020
Background: Concerning students' difficulties with fractions, many explanatory approaches are based on the distinction between conceptual knowledge and procedural knowledge. For further research in this field, it is thus crucial to make these constructs accessible to valid measurement. Aims: In this study, we aim at developing a test instrument…
