Strijbos, Jan-Willem; Wichmann, Astrid – European Journal of Psychology of Education, 2018
Over the past two decades, formative peer assessment has become a popular instructional approach.

Mendes, Sofia A.; Lasser, Jon; Abreu-Lima, Isabel M.; Almeida, Leandro S. – European Journal of Psychology of Education, 2017

Although the relation between teacher--student relationship and academic achievement has been addressed in many studies, the reciprocal relations between these two constructs have not been explored sufficiently. The aim of the present study was to test three competing models that hypothesized directionality of influence in relations between…

Oostdam, Ron; Hooge, Edith – European Journal of Psychology of Education, 2013
Although parental involvement is often a priority on the quality agenda of schools for primary and secondary education, it is still not usual to involve parents as an educational partner in the actual learning process of their child. Rather than adopting an open approach, teachers tend to tell parents what they should do or keep them at a safe…

Eklof, Hanna; Nyroos, Mikaela – European Journal of Psychology of Education, 2013
Although large-scale national tests have been used for many years in Swedish compulsory schools, very little is known about how pupils actually react to these tests. The question is relevant, however, as pupil reactions in the test situation may affect test performance as well as future attitudes towards assessment. The question is relevant also…

McElvany, Nele; Schroeder, Sascha; Baumert, Jurgen; Schnotz, Wolfgang; Horz, Holger; Ullrich, Mark – European Journal of Psychology of Education, 2012
Learning materials incorporating written texts as well as instructional pictures are the basis for learning in many subjects. However, text-picture integration makes high cognitive demands of learners, and it seems plausible that the development of this competence is influenced by teachers' instructional skills. The present studies investigated…

Darnon, Celine; Buchs, Celine; Desbar, Delphine – European Journal of Psychology of Education, 2012
Can teenagers' self-efficacy be improved in a short time? Previous research has shown the positive effect of cooperative learning methods, including "jigsaw classrooms" (Aronson and Patnoe, 1997), on various outcomes (e.g., the liking of school, self-esteem, and reduction of prejudices). The present practice report investigated the effects of…

Liau, Albert K.; Tan, Teck Kiang; Li, Dongdong; Khoo, Angeline – European Journal of Psychology of Education, 2012
As the Personal Strengths Inventory (PSI) was developed to assess the strengths of adolescents, the Personal Strengths Inventory-2 (PSI-2) was developed so that children could be assessed as well. The present study examined whether the five-factor structure of the PSI would be demonstrated with the PSI-2 and whether the same measurement structure…

Van Nuland, Hanneke J. C.; Taris, Toon W.; Boekaerts, Monique; Martens, Rob L. – European Journal of Psychology of Education, 2012
The self-determination theory (SDT) assumes that healthy motivation needs to be intrinsic in nature and that the basic psychological needs competence, autonomy and relatedness are prerequisites for intrinsically motivated behaviour. Intrinsically motivated students in turn show more persistence and understanding of classroom material. However, in…

Marti, Eduardo; Garcia-Mila, Merce; Gabucio, Fernando; Konstantinidou, Katerina – European Journal of Psychology of Education, 2011
Tables are a presentation format that is commonly used to organize information, and they are widely present in many scenarios of our students' everyday activities; however, there is a scarcity of studies devoted to their analysis. Some of these studies point out that the organization of data into a double-entry table presents difficulties for…
