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…

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…

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…

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…

Loehr, Abbey M.; Fazio, Lisa K.; Rittle-Johnson, Bethany – British Journal of Educational Psychology, 2020
Background: Committing errors is a common part of the learning process, and adults are more likely to correct errors that they can recall. However, preadolescent children's recall of previous errors (i.e., memory for errors) may be limited. Aims: We examined children's ability to recall their past errors and tested whether recalling an error aids…

Olivier, Elizabeth; Galand, Benoit; Hospel, Virginie; Dellisse, Sébastien – British Journal of Educational Psychology, 2020
Background: Different teaching practices, such as autonomy support and structure, provide students with a positive learning context supporting their engagement, which can operate through their underlying motivation, including sense of competence and task value. Aims: This study aims at investigating the best configuration (unique or synergistic)…

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…

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.,…

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…
