Higgins, Kathryn; Perra, Oliver; Jordan, Julie-Ann; O'Neill, Tara; McCann, Mark – British Journal of Educational Psychology, 2020
Background: Aspects of the school environment, such as school attachment levels, are linked to adolescent offending. Previous research has not clarified whether a school- or individual-level intervention approach to improving pupil school attachment and commitment is most likely to reduce adolescent offending. Aim: The present study assessed the…

Background: Teaching is a stressful occupation with poor retention. The Incredible Years® Teacher Classroom Management (TCM) programme is a training programme that research has demonstrated may be an effective intervention for improving children's mental health, but little research has explored any impacts there may be on the teachers' own…

Rushton, Sophie; Giallo, Rebecca; Efron, Daryl – British Journal of Educational Psychology, 2020
Background: Attention deficit hyperactivity disorder (ADHD) is consistently associated with poor school-level outcomes. Although school engagement is recognized as a protective factor associated with increased academic achievement, school retention/completion, and student well-being in the general population, little research has focused on school…

Foody, Mairéad; Samara, Muthanna; O'Higgins Norman, James – British Journal of Educational Psychology, 2020
Background: In recent times, sibling bullying has emerged of interest to researchers concerned with the emotional and behavioural implications for victimization regardless of type and setting. Aims: This research attempts to extend current knowledge on both peer and sibling bullying and to determine the effects of poly-setting victimization. This…

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…

Jayman, Michelle; Ohl, Maddie; Hughes, Bronach; Fox, Pauline – British Journal of Educational Psychology, 2019
Background: Policymakers are focusing increased attention on the role of schools to promote and support children's mental health, and evidence-based models of good practice are in demand. Pyramid Club is a school-based, socio-emotional intervention, demonstrably effective with primary-aged pupils. Aims: This study extends previous Pyramid Club…

Crosswaite, Madeline; Asbury, Kathryn – British Journal of Educational Psychology, 2019
Background: Despite a large body of research that has explored the influence of genetic and environmental factors on educationally relevant traits, few studies have explored teachers' beliefs about, or knowledge of, developments in behavioural genetics related to education. Aims: This study aimed to describe the beliefs and knowledge of UK…

Kipman, Ulrike; Kühberger, Anton; Pletzer, Belinda – British Journal of Educational Psychology, 2019
Background: There is little research on how to best introduce children to stochastics. In general, demonstration and concrete experience seem to be necessary to establish good understanding of stochastics in children. Pupils seem to be able to develop an intuition on stochastic thinking when they actively solve probabilistic problems and carry out…

Cueli, Marisol; Areces, Débora; García, Trinidad; Rodríguez, Celestino; Vallejo, Guillermo; González-Castro, Paloma – British Journal of Educational Psychology, 2019
Background: Students commonly struggle with mathematics and mathematical problem-solving. Therefore, it is necessary to design and implement interventions aimed at improving these essential components of learning. Furthermore, the outcomes of these interventions can vary significantly and appear to be a function of a student's initial competencies…

Benzing, Valentin; Schmidt, Mirko; Jäger, Katja; Egger, Fabienne; Conzelmann, Achim; Roebers, Claudia M. – British Journal of Educational Psychology, 2019
Background: Given the strong relationship between executive functions and academic achievement, there has been great interest in improving executive functions. School-based group interventions targeting executive functions revealed encouraging results in preschoolers and young school children; however, there is a paucity of studies in older…

Deekens, Victor M.; Greene, Jeffrey A.; Lobczowski, Nikki G. – British Journal of Educational Psychology, 2018
Background: Self-regulated learning (SRL) models position metacognitive monitoring as central to SRL processing and predictive of student learning outcomes (Winne & Hadwin, 2008; Zimmerman, 2000). A body of research evidence also indicates that depth of strategy use, ranging from surface to deep processing, is predictive of learning…

Leith, Georgia; Yuill, Nicola; Pike, Alison – British Journal of Educational Psychology, 2018
Background: Typical scaffolding coding schemes provide overall scores to compare across a sample. As such, insights into the scaffolding process can be obscured: the child's contribution to the learning; the particular skills being taught and learned; and the overall changes in amount of scaffolding over the course of the task. Aims: This study…

Yuill, Nicola; Little, Sarah – British Journal of Educational Psychology, 2018
Background: Mother-child mental state talk (MST) supports children's developing social-emotional understanding. In typically developing (TD) children, family conversations about emotion, cognition, and causes have been linked to children's emotion understanding. Specific language impairment (SLI) may compromise developing emotion understanding and…

Gärtner, Kim Angeles; Vetter, Verena Clara; Schäferling, Michaela; Reuner, Gitta; Hertel, Silke – British Journal of Educational Psychology, 2018
Background: Preterm children have an increased risk regarding self-regulation development. Given the strong link between parenting behaviour (i.e., scaffolding and sensitivity) and children's self-regulation, parental training presents a promising way to counteract the negative consequences of preterm birth. Aims: We explored the effectiveness of…

Hebron, Judith S. – British Journal of Educational Psychology, 2018
Background: Young people with autism spectrum conditions (ASC) face many educational challenges, particularly in terms of academic achievement, social inclusion, and mental health. School connectedness is linked to many positive outcomes and may be of particular salience at the primary-secondary school transition, when young people with ASC are…
