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…

Avgerinou, Vana A.; Tolmie, Andrew – British Journal of Educational Psychology, 2020
Background: Prior research with adults and children suggests that inhibitory control may have a role to play in learning counterintuitive fractions and decimals that are inconsistent with whole number knowledge. However, there is little research to date with primary school-aged children at the early stages of fraction and decimal instruction that…

Weber, Anke Maria; Leuchter, Miriam – British Journal of Educational Psychology, 2020
Background: Preschoolers' knowledge of the principle of static equilibrium is an important research focus for understanding children's science content knowledge. Hitherto studies have mainly used behavioural observation with small samples. Thus, extending these studies with a validated test instrument is desirable. Aims: The aim was to validate an…

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…

Wong, Terry Tin-Yau – British Journal of Educational Psychology, 2019
Background: While it has been widely demonstrated that children's and adolescents' understanding of rational number plays an important role in their mathematics achievement, we have limited knowledge about the cognitive correlates of this understanding. Aims: The current study aimed at examining whether children's non-symbolic ratio processing and…

Münchow, Hannes; Richter, Tobias; von der Mühlen, Sarah; Schmid, Sebastian – British Journal of Educational Psychology, 2019
Background: The evaluation of informal arguments is a key component of comprehending scientific texts and scientific literacy. Aim: The present study examined the nomological network of university students' ability to evaluate informal arguments in scientific texts and the relevance of this ability for academic success. Sample: A sample of 225…

Leighton, Jacqueline P. – British Journal of Educational Psychology, 2019
Background and Aims: In educational measurement, performance assessments occupy a niche for offering a true-to-life format that affords the measurement of high-level cognitive competencies and the evidence to draw inferences about intellectual capital. However, true-to-life formats also introduce myriad complexities and can skew if not outright…

Winne, Philip H. – British Journal of Educational Psychology, 2018
Background: Deep versus surface knowledge is widely discussed by educational practitioners. A corresponding construct, levels of processing, has received extensive theoretical and empirical attention in learning science and psychology. In both arenas, lower levels of information and shallower levels of processing are predicted and generally…

Scheiter, Katharina; Schubert, Carina; Schüler, Anne – British Journal of Educational Psychology, 2018
Background: When learning with text and pictures, learners often fail to adequately process the materials, which can be explained as a failure to self-regulate one's learning by choosing adequate cognitive learning processes. Eye movement modelling examples (EMME) showing how to process multimedia instruction have improved elementary school…

Dinsmore, Daniel L.; Zoellner, Brian P. – British Journal of Educational Psychology, 2018
Background: This investigation was designed to uncover the relations between students' cognitive and metacognitive strategies used during a complex climate simulation. While cognitive strategy use during science inquiry has been studied, the factors related to this strategy use, such as concurrent metacognition, prior knowledge, and prior…

Catrysse, Leen; Gijbels, David; Donche, Vincent; De Maeyer, Sven; Lesterhuis, Marije; Van den Bossche, Piet – British Journal of Educational Psychology, 2018
Background: Up until now, empirical studies in the Student Approaches to Learning field have mainly been focused on the use of self-report instruments, such as interviews and questionnaires, to uncover differences in students' general preferences towards learning strategies, but have focused less on the use of task-specific and online measures.…

Coertjens, Liesje – British Journal of Educational Psychology, 2018
Aim: The main aim of this commentary was to connect the insights from the contributions of the special issue on the intersection between depth and the regulation of strategy use. The seven contributions in this special issue stem from three perspectives: self-regulated learning (SRL), model of domain learning (MDL), or the student approaches to…

Rosman, Tom; Mayer, Anne-Kathrin – British Journal of Educational Psychology, 2018
Background: The "cognitive incongruity model of epistemic beliefs and emotions" states that if students' beliefs about the nature of knowledge (e.g., knowledge as simple and absolute) are incompatible with the epistemic nature of learning materials (e.g., complex and contradictory), cognitive incongruity arises. This, in turn, entails…

Otumfuor, Beryl Ann; Carr, Martha – British Journal of Educational Psychology, 2017
Background: Spatial skills have been linked to better performance in mathematics. Aim The purpose of this study was to examine the relationship between teacher spatial skills and their instruction, including teacher content and pedagogical knowledge, use of pictorial representations, and use of gestures during geometry instruction. Sample:…

Träff, Ulf; Skagerlund, Kenny; Olsson, Linda; Östergren, Rickard – British Journal of Educational Psychology, 2017
Background: Developing sufficient mathematical skills is a prerequisite to function adequately in society today. Given this, an important task is to increase our understanding regarding the cognitive mechanisms underlying young people's acquisition of early number skills and formal mathematical knowledge. Aims: The purpose was to examine whether…
