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)…

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…

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…

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…

Spruijt, Andrea M.; Dekker, Marielle C.; Ziermans, Tim B.; Swaab, Hanna – British Journal of Educational Psychology, 2020
Background: Parent-child interaction is essential in the development of attentional control (AC ) and executive functioning (EF ). Educating parents in AC and EF development may help them to respond more adaptively to their child's developmental needs. Aim: This study aimed to investigate whether parents can be educated to improve interactions…

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…

Carretti, Barbara; Toffalini, Enrico; Saponaro, Cosmiana; Viola, Francesco; Cornoldi, Cesare – British Journal of Educational Psychology, 2020
Background: Reading can be assessed using different materials, including non-words and texts. Unlike reading words or non-words, reading a text may be supported by reading comprehension, and the extent of this support could change with the amount of schooling. Aim: The present study aimed to examine how reading decoding in a shallow orthography…

Allen, Kate; Hansford, Lorraine; Hayes, Rachel; Allwood, Matthew; Byford, Sarah; Longdon, Bryony; Price, Anna; Ford, Tamsin – British Journal of Educational Psychology, 2020
Background: The Incredible Years® (IY) Teacher Classroom Management (TCM) programme may be an effective way to reduce teacher stress levels, improve child behaviour, and promote positive socio-emotional development. However, few studies have considered what teachers think of the course and how it might work. Aims: In this paper, we examine…

Sheffler, Pamela C.; Cheung, Cecilia S. – British Journal of Educational Psychology, 2020
Background: Research indicates that implicit theories of intelligence, specifically growth mindset, are conducive to students' academic achievement and engagement. While much research has focused on the role of teachers and parents, it is unclear how implicit theories of intelligence operate in the peer context. Aims: This study examined the…

Wright, Daniel B. – British Journal of Educational Psychology, 2020
Background: Educational and developmental psychologists often examine how groups change over time. Two analytic procedures -- analysis of covariance (ANCOVA) and the gain score model -- each seem well suited for the simplest situation, with just two groups and two time points. They can produce different results, what is known as Lord's paradox.…

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…
