Kim, Lisa E.; MacCann, Carolyn – British Journal of Educational Psychology, 2018
Background: Instructors are under pressure to produce excellent outcomes in students. Although the contribution of "student" personality on student outcomes is well established, the contribution of "instructor" personality to student outcomes is largely unknown. Aim: This study examined the influence of instructor personality…

Fraser, Diana M. – British Journal of Educational Psychology, 2018
Background: A growth mindset is a significant factor in the motivation and achievement of learners. Previous research has shown one-off interventions do encourage growth mindset thinking but only improvements are only short-lived. A sustainable and embedded approach may therefore be the only way to engender long-term changes to an individual's…

Rathé, Sanne; Torbeyns, Joke; De Smedt, Bert; Hannula-Sormunen, Minna M.; Verschaffel, Lieven – British Journal of Educational Psychology, 2018
Background: Young children's spontaneous focusing on numerosity (SFON) as measured by experimental tasks is related to their mathematics achievement. This association is hypothetically explained by children's self-initiated practice in number recognition during everyday activities. As such, experimentally measured SFON should be associated with…

Liu, Yingyi; Sun, Huilin; Lin, Dan; Li, Hong; Yeung, Susanna Siu-sze; Wong, Terry Tin-Yau – British Journal of Educational Psychology, 2018
Background: Word reading and linguistic comprehension skills are two crucial components in reading comprehension, according to the Simple View of Reading (SVR). Some researchers have posited that a third component should be involved in reading and understanding texts, namely executive function (EF) skills. Aim: This study was novel in two ways.…

Hughes, Claire; Foley, Sarah; White, Naomi; Devine, Rory T. – British Journal of Educational Psychology, 2018
Background: There is an urgent need to accelerate the detection of special educational needs and disabilities (SEND). A recent brief questionnaire designed for teachers and nursery staff, the Brief Early Skills and Support Index (BESSI), shows promising psychometric properties (Hughes, Daly, Foley, White, & Devine, 2015. "British Journal…

Becker, Michael; McElvany, Nele – British Journal of Educational Psychology, 2018
Background: Researchers often report and discuss gender differences. However, recent research has drawn attention to interaction effects between gender and other social categories. Aims: This study analysed the development of disparities in students' reading-related self-concept, intrinsic motivation, and behaviour, as they relate to differences…

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…

Jury, Mickaël; Bruno, Alisée; Darnon, Céline – British Journal of Educational Psychology, 2018
Background: Previous research has shown that, when succeeding in higher education, first-generation (FG) students endorse more performance-avoidance goals (i.e., the fear of performing poorly) than continuing-generation (CG) students. Aims: In this study, individual mobility is examined as a predictor of performance-avoidance goal endorsement. It…

Hodgkiss, Alex; Gilligan, Katie A.; Tolmie, Andrew K.; Thomas, Michael S. C.; Farran, Emily K. – British Journal of Educational Psychology, 2018
Background: Prior longitudinal and correlational research with adults and adolescents indicates that spatial ability is a predictor of science learning and achievement. However, there is little research to date with primary-school aged children that addresses this relationship. Understanding this association has the potential to inform curriculum…

Schmidt, Isabelle; Brunner, Martin; Preckel, Franzis – British Journal of Educational Psychology, 2018
Background: Achievement in math and achievement in verbal school subjects are more strongly correlated than the respective academic self-concepts. The internal/external frame of reference model (I/E model; Marsh, 1986, "Am. Educ. Res. J.," 23, 129) explains this finding by social and dimensional comparison processes. We investigated a…

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…

Mermelshtine, Roni – British Journal of Educational Psychology, 2017
Background: Scaffolding can be observed during learning-based interactions, when interventions by parents are adjusted according to children's observed abilities, with the main goal of enabling the child to work independently (Wood "et al.", 1976, "Journal of child psychology and psychiatry," 17, 89). Such contingent…

Zendarski, Nardia; Sciberras, Emma; Mensah, Fiona; Hiscock, Harriet – British Journal of Educational Psychology, 2017
Background: Students with attention/deficit hyperactivity disorder (ADHD) continue to languish behind their peers with regard to academic achievement and education attainment. School engagement is potentially modifiable, and targeting engagement may be a means to improve education outcomes. Aims: To investigate school engagement for students with…

Oldfield, Jeremy; Humphrey, Neil; Hebron, Judith – British Journal of Educational Psychology, 2017
Background: Students with special educational needs and disabilities (SEND) are more likely to exhibit behaviour difficulties than their typically developing peers. Aim: The aim of this study was to identify specific risk factors that influence variability in behaviour difficulties among individuals with SEND. Sample: The study sample comprised…
