Clerkin, Aidan – British Journal of Educational Psychology, 2020
Background: Transition Year (TY) is a quasi-gap year offered midway through post-primary education in Ireland. TY is intended to provide a low-stakes environment to promote maturity and social skills, and to prepare students for adult life. Previous interview-based research has found that TY is seen as a positive experience by many students and…

Finn, Kristin E.; Seymour, Clancy M.; Phillips, Anna E. – British Journal of Educational Psychology, 2020
Background: Weight bias is a pervasive problem for adolescents in school contexts. Despite evidence of negative attitudes towards students who are overweight, comparatively little research has examined whether teachers provide biased assessments of student work. Aims: The purpose of this study was to experimentally test whether middle and high…

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…

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…

Chen, Li-Ming; Jin, Kuan-Yu – British Journal of Educational Psychology, 2020
Background: Most bullying incidents occur in the presence of bystanders, with few choosing to intervene. Therefore, the development of a valid instrument to measure individuals' willingness to intervene in bullying is warranted. Aims: This study aimed to develop as well as validate a self-reported willingness to intervene in bullying scale (WIBS)…

Kikas, Eve; Mädamürk, Kaja; Palu, Anu – British Journal of Educational Psychology, 2020
Background: Math is a difficult subject with which many upper middle-school students struggle. In addition to knowledge, skills, and motivation, effective learning strategies play an important role in learning math. Aims: This study aimed to examine the effects of comprehension-oriented learning strategies (perceptual and abstract grouping of…

Theis, Désirée; Sauerwein, Markus; Fischer, Natalie – British Journal of Educational Psychology, 2020
Background: Students' mastery goals are positively related to adaptive learning behaviour. Moreover, these goals often mediate the relation between perceived classroom characteristics and academic achievement. Research generally shows a decline of academic achievement and mastery goals after transition to middle school. Creating a learning…

Fazio, Lisa K. – British Journal of Educational Psychology, 2019
Background: Tasks that involve retrieving information from memory, such as answering short answer questions, are more effective at improving learning than restudying, concept mapping, and other study techniques. However, little is known about how often teachers naturally provide these retrieval practice opportunities during lectures and classroom…

Pöysä, Sanni; Vasalampi, Kati; Muotka, Joona; Lerkkanen, Marja-Kristiina; Poikkeus, Anna-Maija; Nurmi, Jari-Erik – British Journal of Educational Psychology, 2019
Background: Prior research has shown that engagement plays a significant role in students' academic learning. Aims: The present study sought to expand the current understanding of students' engagement by examining how situational engagement during a particular lesson is associated with the observed teacher-student classroom interactions (i.e.,…

Li, Meijuan; Zhang, Yongmei; Liu, Hongyun; Hao, Yi – British Journal of Educational Psychology, 2018
Background: The topic of gender differences in mathematical performance has received considerable attention in the fields of education, sociology, economics and psychology. Aims: We analysed gender differences based on data from the Beijing Assessment of Educational Quality in China. Sample: A large data set of Grade 5 and Grade 8 students who…

Chu, Junyi; Rittle-Johnson, Bethany; Fyfe, Emily R. – British Journal of Educational Psychology, 2017
Background: The format of a mathematics problem often influences students' problem-solving performance. For example, providing diagrams in conjunction with story problems can benefit students' understanding, choice of strategy, and accuracy on story problems. However, it remains unclear whether providing diagrams in conjunction with symbolic…

Van der Beek, Jojanneke P. J.; Van der Ven, Sanne H. G.; Kroesbergen, Evelyn H.; Leseman, Paul P. M. – British Journal of Educational Psychology, 2017
Background: Mathematics achievement is related to positive and negative emotions. Pekrun's control-value theory of achievement emotions suggests that students' self-concept (i.e., self-appraisal of ability) may be an important mediator of the relation between mathematics achievement and emotions. Aims: The aims were (1) to investigate the…

Chamberlin, Scott A.; Moore, Alan D.; Parks, Kelly – British Journal of Educational Psychology, 2017
Background: Student affect plays a considerable role in mathematical problem solving performance, yet is rarely formally assessed. In this manuscript, an instrument and its properties are discussed to enable educational psychologists the opportunity to assess student affect. Aims: The study was conducted to norm the CAIMPS (instrument) with gifted…

Scrimin, Sara; Moscardino, Ughetta; Altoè, Gianmarco; Mason, Lucia – British Journal of Educational Psychology, 2016
Background: Previous research indicates that children can display different attention allocation patterns in response to threat. However, data are lacking on the possible existence of an attentional bias in response to academic stressors, and whether variables related to school well-being (SWB) and students' individual characteristics may…

Verniers, Catherine; Martinot, Delphine; Dompnier, Benoît – British Journal of Educational Psychology, 2016
Background: The feminization of school hypothesis suggests that boys underachieve in school compared to girls because school rewards feminine characteristics that are at odds with boys' masculine features. Aims: The feminization of school hypothesis lacks empirical evidence. The aim of this study was to test this hypothesis by examining the extent…
