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…

Schirmbeck, Katharina; Rao, Nirmala; Wang, Rhoda; Richards, Ben; Chan, Stephanie W. Y.; Maehler, Claudia – European Journal of Psychology of Education, 2021
Previous research findings indicate that young children from East Asia outperform their counterparts from Europe and North America on executive function (EF) tasks. However, very few cross-national studies have focused on EF development during middle childhood. The current study assessed the EF performance of 170 children in grades 2 and 4 from…

Pitsia, Vasiliki; Mazzone, Angela – European Journal of Psychology of Education, 2021
Bullying victimisation is a reality in most schools around the world, with thousands of students being victimised on a daily basis. Given the prevalence of bullying victimisation at school, examination of what might prompt or prevent such behaviours is required. Therefore, this study examined the relationship of a number of individual and…

Arikan, Serkan; van de Vijver, Fons J. R.; Yagmur, Kutlay – European Journal of Psychology of Education, 2020
The few studies on the achievement differences of mainstream and immigrant primary school students in large-scale assessments point to an achievement gap in many subject areas, with immigrant students trailing mainstream students. A recurrent methodological problem of these studies is that the two student groups do not come from comparable…

Wei, Dan; Zhang, Danhui; He, Jingwen; Bobis, Janette – European Journal of Psychology of Education, 2020
According to the self-determination theory, autonomy-supportive teaching is considered an effective approach to motivate students to learn. The present study investigates the effect of students' perceived autonomy support on math achievement over time, i.e. from grades 4 to 6, using a longitudinal survey administered in Chinese elementary schools.…

Hilbert, Sven; Bruckmaier, Georg; Binder, Karin; Krauss, Stefan; Bühner, Markus – European Journal of Psychology of Education, 2019
In the present study, the relationship between the mathematics grade and the three basic cognitive abilities (inhibition, working memory, and reasoning) was analyzed regarding possible alterations during elementary school. In a sample of N = 244 children, the mathematics grade was best predicted by working memory performance in the second grade…

Sikiö, Riitta; Siekkinen, Martti; Holopainen, Leena; Silinskas, Gintautas; Lerkkanen, Marja-Kristiina; Nurmi, Jari-Erik – European Journal of Psychology of Education, 2018
The aim of this study was to examine the role of mothers' (language minority mothers, LM, n = 49, and Finnish-speaking mothers, MP, n = 368) parenting styles and maternal help with their children's homework in the children's (mean age 11.43 years) literacy skills at fourth grade in Finland. In addition, the moderating effect of a child's gender on…

Suviste, Reelika; Palu, Anu; Kikas, Eve; Kiuru, Noona – European Journal of Psychology of Education, 2017
This study examined the extent to which teaching practices and teaching experience predict mathematics skills of children's in the third through fifth grade by focusing on three cognitive components: (1) knowing facts and procedures, (2) applying this knowledge and (3) using reasoning. This study was longitudinal. The data was collected from 1,810…

Jiang, Ronghuan; Li, Xiaodong; Fernández, Ceneida; Fu, Xinchen – European Journal of Psychology of Education, 2017
This study investigates Spanish and Chinese students' performance on both addition problems and proportion problems considering a cross-national perspective. The effect of number structure and nature of quantities was also considered. Nine hundred twenty-five 4th to 8th graders (453 Chinese, 472 Spanish) took a test which is composed of addition…

Torbeyns, Joke; Verschaffel, Lieven – European Journal of Psychology of Education, 2016
This study analyzed children's use of mental computation strategies and the standard algorithm on multi-digit subtractions. Fifty-eight Flemish 4th graders of varying mathematical achievement level were individually offered subtractions that either stimulated the use of mental computation strategies or the standard algorithm in one choice and two…

Haag, Nicole; Heppt, Birgit; Roppelt, Alexander; Stanat, Petra – European Journal of Psychology of Education, 2015
In large-scale assessment studies, language minority students typically obtain lower test scores in mathematics than native speakers. Although this performance difference was related to the linguistic complexity of test items in some studies, other studies did not find linguistically demanding math items to be disproportionally more difficult for…

Jozsa, Krisztian; Morgan, George A. – European Journal of Psychology of Education, 2014
This study describes changes in cognitive persistence, a key measure of mastery motivation, between the ages of 10 (grade 4) and 14 (grade 8). Prior research in the field of mastery motivation has focused mainly on early childhood. No longitudinal research findings have been published about age changes in mastery motivation during the school…

Roque, Isabel; de Lemos, Marina Serra; Gonçalves, Teresa – European Journal of Psychology of Education, 2014
This study examined the development of school-related causality beliefs which are children's generalized perceptions of the utility or power of different categories of specific means in producing school outcomes. Based on the action theory perspective, we analyzed the developmental model of these beliefs as well as the trajectories of the…

Longobardi, Emiddia; Spataro, Pietro; Renna, Marialuisa; Rossi-Arnaud, Clelia – European Journal of Psychology of Education, 2014
The present study examined the use of narrative categories and mental state words in the fictional, personal, and hypothetical stories written by 150 children in the third, fourth, and fifth grades of primary school. There were three main results. First, children were better able to write fictional and hypothetical than personal stories, when…
