Darnon, Céline; Fayol, Michel – European Journal of Psychology of Education, 2022
Socioeconomic status (SES) has been shown to be associated with children's arithmetic knowledge as early as kindergarten, which is an important issue, given that early numeracy knowledge and skills usually correlate to later academic achievement in arithmetic. In line with recent research, it is argued that the regular practice of exercises…

Brun, Laurent; Dompnier, Benoit; Pansu, Pascal – European Journal of Psychology of Education, 2022
In educational contexts, interpersonal attributional theory (Weiner, 2019) posits that teachers' beliefs about the causes underlying their students' academic performance vary along the causal dimensions of locus of causality, stability, personal controllability, and others' controllability. Based on this framework, this study aimed at identifying…

Sekeris, Elke; Verschaffel, Lieven; Luwel, Koen – European Journal of Psychology of Education, 2022
Computational estimation is seen as an important mathematical competence. Little is known, however, about the mathematical skills that are predictive of early computational estimation development. The current study longitudinally followed a group of about 350 children at four time points: second (K2, 4-year-olds) and third grades of kindergarten…

Dotzel, Stefanie; Bonefeld, Meike; Karst, Karina – European Journal of Psychology of Education, 2022
Previous studies examining attitudes towards performance heterogeneity have focused on attitudes among teachers. However, positive attitudes towards the school environment are also assumed to be conducive for students. The aim of this paper is to examine students' attitudes towards performance heterogeneity with a sample of 784 5th-grade students.…

Spitzer, Markus Wolfgang Hermann – European Journal of Psychology of Education, 2022
Decades of research produced inconsistent findings on whether study time can lead to achievement gains in mathematics. Data generated by more than six thousand students from three different countries who solved more than 1.1 million problem sets using a dedicated mathematics software are analyzed regarding the effect of study time on students'…

Wagner, Inga; Loesche, Philipp; Bißantz, Steven – European Journal of Psychology of Education, 2022
The German school system employs centrally organized performance assessments (some of which are called "VERA") as a way of promoting lesson development. In recent years, several German federal states introduced a computer-based performance testing system which will replace the paper-pencil testing system in the future. Scores from…

Kikas, Eve; Mädamürk, Kaja; Hennok, Liis; Sigus, Hardi; Talpsep, Teri; Luptova, Olga; Kivi, Valentina – European Journal of Psychology of Education, 2022
This study examined the effects of a teacher-led learning-strategy intervention program on fourth-grade students' reported use and perceived effectiveness of rehearsal and comprehension-oriented learning strategies. During 18 program units, teachers taught about learning and various learning strategies, including visualisation, elaboration and…

Mata, Lourdes; Monteiro, Vera; Peixoto, Francisco; Santos, Natalie Nóbrega; Sanches, Cristina; Gomes, Marta – European Journal of Psychology of Education, 2022
Learning maths is challenging for many primary school students, and teachers must understand students' learning and emotional processes specific to learning maths. The current research, grounded in control-value theory, focused on achievement emotions regarding maths. Primary school students (N = 71) were studied with the primary objective of…

Steuer, Gabriele; Tulis, Maria; Dresel, Markus – European Journal of Psychology of Education, 2022
A frequent observation in the school context is that opportunities to learn from errors are often missed. However, a positive error climate may support learning from errors. For the school subject of mathematics, some findings about characteristics of the error climate already exist. But, a comparison of the error climate between different school…

Van Vo, De; Csapo, Beno – European Journal of Psychology of Education, 2022
The purpose of this study is to explore students' motivation towards science learning at different grade levels and to investigate whether inductive reasoning can contribute to an explanation of science motivation. The study conducted a cross-sectional assessment in six public schools in Vietnam with a total population of 813 students from the…

Zacharia, Michal Goldberg; Yablon, Yaacov B. – European Journal of Psychology of Education, 2022
One of the negative consequences of bullying in schools is its adverse effect on students' sense of safety. Previous studies yielded mixed results and a nonlinear relationship between bullying and students' sense of safety and pointed to the need for revealing possible mediating and moderating factors in order to better understand this…

Ecalle, Jean; Magnan, Annie; Auphan, Pauline; Gomes, Christophe; Cros, Laurent; Suchaut, Bruno – European Journal of Psychology of Education, 2022
The aim is to examine the impact of interventions on fluency and reading comprehension and how the effects of these interventions depend on the time that teachers spend with children with reading difficulties. Two groups were involved: an experimental group (n = 600) trained in code-related skills and a control group (n = 597) that received no…

Sekeris, Elke; Empsen, Michaël; Verschaffel, Lieven; Luwel, Koen – European Journal of Psychology of Education, 2021
The transition from informal to formal mathematics is an important episode in children's mathematical development. The current study investigated how young children's computational estimation performance and strategy use develops in this transitional period. The computational estimation performance of 350 children was assessed before the start of…

Holenstein, Mathias; Bruckmaier, Georg; Grob, Alexander – European Journal of Psychology of Education, 2021
Mathematical literacy (ML) is considered central to the application of mathematical knowledge in everyday life and thus is found in many comparative international educational standards. However, there exists barely any evidence about predictors and outcomes of ML having a lasting effect on achievement in nonmathematical domains. We drew on a large…

Rautanen, Pihla; Soini, Tiina; Pietarinen, Janne; Pyhältö, Kirsi – European Journal of Psychology of Education, 2021
The aim of this research was to study the dynamics of fourth graders' perceived social support for schoolwork and to examine how this support contributes to their study engagement. Social support was hypothesised to be positively associated with higher levels of study engagement. Moreover, social support from teachers and guardians was…
