Ziegler, Esther; Edelsbrunner, Peter A.; Stern, Elsbeth – European Journal of Psychology of Education, 2021
Teacher-directed and self-directed learning have been compared across various contexts. Depending on the settings and the presentation of material, mixed benefits are found; the specific circumstances under which either condition is advantageous are unclear. We combined and reanalyzed data from two experimental studies investigating the effects of…

Cheng, Hong-Yu; Ding, Qian-Ting – European Journal of Psychology of Education, 2021
The purpose of the study was to reveal whether and how learner-centered instruction in comparison with traditional teacher-centered instruction might present unique effects on the learning behaviors and academic motivation of Chinese students. Meanwhile, it was also explored how the distinctive instructing features of Chinese teachers assuming the…

Cruz Neri, Nadine; Guill, Karin; Retelsdorf, Jan – European Journal of Psychology of Education, 2021
Science performance is highly affected by students' reading comprehension. Recently, there has been a growing attention to the role of linguistic features for science performance, but findings are ambivalent, especially when looking into item word count. The aim of this study was to investigate the interaction of students' reading comprehension…

Csanadi, Andras; Kollar, Ingo; Fischer, Frank – European Journal of Psychology of Education, 2021
This study investigates if collaboration and the level of heterogeneity between collaborating partners' problem-solving scripts can influence the extent to which pre-service teachers engage in evidence-based reasoning when analyzing and solving pedagogical problem cases. We operationalized evidence-based reasoning through its content and process…

Papadopoulos, Timothy C.; Spanoudis, George; Ktisti, Christiana; Fella, Argyro – European Journal of Psychology of Education, 2021
We investigated the role of linguistic and cognitive processes in reading precocity from kindergarten to grade 2. A sample of 33 precocious readers was identified that did not differ on age, gender, and parental education to a control group of 259 typical readers. The effects of verbal ability were also controlled. All children were administered a…

Lang, Fabian; Kammerer, Yvonne; Stürmer, Kathleen; Gerjets, Peter – European Journal of Psychology of Education, 2021
Prior research on epistemic beliefs, that is, individuals' views about knowledge and knowing, has mainly focused either on individuals' professed beliefs (as reported in questionnaires) or on their enacted beliefs (as indicated during task processing). However, little is known about the relation between professed and enacted epistemic beliefs. The…

Urban, Kamila; Urban, Marek – European Journal of Psychology of Education, 2021
Accurate self-evaluation leads to better regulation of learning and better performance in elementary school children and acts as a predictor of future academic success. The present study investigates the conditions under which preschoolers' self-evaluation accuracy can be enhanced. In the empirical research, 111 children were assigned to one of…

Wu, Chao-Jung; Liu, Chia-Yu; Yang, Chung-Hsuan; Jian, Yu-Cin – European Journal of Psychology of Education, 2021
Despite decades of research on the close link between eye movements and human cognitive processes, the exact nature of the link between eye movements and deliberative thinking in problem-solving remains unknown. Thus, this study explored the critical eye-movement indicators of deliberative thinking and investigated whether visual behaviors could…

Locher, Franziska Maria; Becker, Sarah; Schiefer, Irene; Pfost, Maximilian – European Journal of Psychology of Education, 2021
Reading self-concept is an important predictor of reading comprehension and vice versa. However, the mechanisms that are at work in this relation have yet to be identified. In line with the self-enhancement approach, we propose that in the reading domain, amount of reading, book choice (text difficulty and book length), and intrinsic reading…

Zaric, Jelena; Hasselhorn, Marcus; Nagler, Telse – European Journal of Psychology of Education, 2021
It is widely accepted that general intelligence and phonological awareness contribute to children's acquisition of reading and spelling skills. A further candidate in this regard is orthographic knowledge (i.e., the knowledge about permissible letter patterns). It consists of two components, word-specific (i.e., the knowledge of the spelling of…

Pyhältö, Kirsi; Pietarinen, Janne; Haverinen, Kaisa; Tikkanen, Lotta; Soini, Tiina – European Journal of Psychology of Education, 2021
Teacher burnout has been identified as a significant occupational hazard. However, our understanding about individual variations in burnout risk among in-service teachers is still less than sufficient. This study explored socio-contextual burnout risk profiles and their association with the reported use of proactive strategies among in-service…

Clem, Anna-Leena; Rudasill, Kathleen M.; Hirvonen, Riikka; Aunola, Kaisa; Kiuru, Noona – European Journal of Psychology of Education, 2021
This study examined to what extent teacher-student conflict and closeness, on the one hand, and students' self-concepts of ability in literacy and mathematics, on the other, are related to students' achievement emotions (enjoyment, anxiety and boredom) in mathematics and literacy among Finnish early adolescents (N = 854). We also investigated the…

Xu, Jianzhong – European Journal of Psychology of Education, 2021
Whereas it is often a challenge to keep students motivated and interested in academic tasks, it is more of a challenge to have students stay motivated and interested in academic tasks outside school during nonschool hours--homework. Prior research, however, has largely overlooked the reasons or purposes students have for doing homework and their…

Taverna, Andrea S.; Padilla, Migdalia I.; Baiocchi, María C.; Peralta, Olga A. – European Journal of Psychology of Education, 2021
Although there is wide evidence on young children's category learning, questions concerning how cognitive mechanisms and social mediation work collaboratively in this process remain sparse. Here, we study the impact of pedagogy in young children's categorization of novel artifacts. A before-and-after micro-genetic study compared 58 3-year-old…

Menz, Cordelia; Spinath, Birgit; Seifried, Eva – European Journal of Psychology of Education, 2021
Endorsement of educational psychological misconceptions among preservice teachers can be a threat for reaching educational goals. Therefore, it is of societal interest whether preservice teachers hold educational psychological misconceptions and, if they do, whether these misconceptions can be reduced through confrontation with empirical evidence.…
