Kim, Yeo-eun; Yu, Shirley L.; Wolters, Christopher A.; Anderman, Eric M. – Educational Psychologist, 2023
As the pursuit of multiple goals is an inescapable reality in everyday life, students are consistently challenged to self-regulate toward achieving an array of academic goals as well as social and well-being goals.

Robinson, Kristy A. – Educational Psychologist, 2023
The study of classroom processes that shape students' motivational beliefs, although fruitful, has suffered from a lack of conceptual clarity in terminology, definitions, distinctions, and roles of these important processes.

Nichols, Sharon L.; Berliner, David C. – Educational Psychologist, 2023
In this essay we begin with a discussion of what we call the "great gap" between our research and its influence on society. We point out that although there is ample evidence speaking to these areas, a lack of societal change suggests that evidence has largely gone unnoticed, ignored, or not well promoted or disseminated. Throughout this…

Kaplan, Avi – Educational Psychologist, 2023
As a community of practice, educational psychologists are unpracticed in considering how educational policies might affect the phenomena they study.

Motivational interventions grounded in Eccles and colleagues' situated expectancy-value theory (SEVT) can promote students' motivational beliefs and academic performance.

In this article, parental role construction is framed from a sociocultural perspective.
