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…

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…

Chen, Ouhao; Retnowati, Endah; Kalyuga, Slava – British Journal of Educational Psychology, 2020
Background: The worked example effect in cognitive load theory suggests that providing worked examples first followed by solving similar problems would facilitate students' learning. Using problem solving-worked example sequence is another way of implementing example-based instruction. Although research has demonstrated the superiority of worked…

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…

Thijs, Jochem; Keim, Abigail C.; Geerlings, Jolien – British Journal of Educational Psychology, 2019
Background: Many studies have shown that school belonging is crucial for students' school adjustment, but the construct has been operationalized in different ways. Moreover, most research has focused on adolescents and not compared its antecedents for ethnic minority versus majority students. Aims: Based on Goodenow and Grady's (1993) seminal…

Herrero Romero, Rocio; Hall, James; Cluver, Lucie – British Journal of Educational Psychology, 2019
Background: Many adolescents in South Africa are exposed to multiple types of violence, socio-economic disadvantage, and low-quality education: all risk factors for educational outcomes including school delay (grade enrolment below that which is age-appropriate). Supportive teacher-student relationships are known to be associated with improved…

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…

Lowrie, Tom; Logan, Tracy; Ramful, Ajay – British Journal of Educational Psychology, 2017
Background: Although spatial ability and mathematics performance are highly correlated, there is scant research on the extent to which spatial ability training can improve mathematics performance. Aims: This study evaluated the efficacy of a visuospatial intervention programme within classrooms to determine the effect on students' (1) spatial…

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…

Van Hoof, Jo; Verschaffel, Lieven; Van Dooren, Wim – British Journal of Educational Psychology, 2017
Background: Rational numbers are of critical importance both in mathematics and in other fields of science. However, they form a stumbling block for learners. One widely known source of the difficulty learners have with rational numbers is the natural number bias, that is the tendency to (inappropriately) apply natural number properties in…
