Bakadorova, Olga; Lazarides, Rebecca; Raufelder, Diana – European Journal of Psychology of Education, 2020
While school self-concept is an important facilitator of a student's school engagement, previous studies rarely investigated whether it may also explain the change in students' school engagement during secondary school. Moreover, as social relations play an increasingly important role in adolescence, the current research distinguishes between the…

Li, Hongxia; Hua, Xiaoteng; Yang, Yalin; Huang, Bijuan; Si, Jiwei – European Journal of Psychology of Education, 2020
Although an increasing number of studies have suggested that students with low mathematics achievement (LMA) tend to perform worse in arithmetic strategy use than children with typical development, the potential reasons remain unclear. Accordingly, the current study investigated the potential impact of task switching on strategy use for children…

Kavanagh, Lauren – European Journal of Psychology of Education, 2020
Given the significant role that academic self-concept plays in students' learning, understanding the psychological processes involved in its formation continues to be an important focus of enquiry.

de Leur, Tessa; van Boxtel, Carla; Wilschut, Arie – European Journal of Psychology of Education, 2020

A variety of tasks can be used to stimulate students to create an image of the past. In this experimental study, 151 grade 9 students (14-16 years old) participated by completing a…

Józsa, Krisztián; Kis, Noémi; Barrett, Karen Caplovitz – European Journal of Psychology of Education, 2019
Children's motivation to master challenging tasks is an important predictor of school success, and yet, such motivation declines during adolescence. It is therefore important to identify ways to intervene to reduce this decline. One malleable factor that is associated with motivation is parenting. The present study used structural equation…
