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.…

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…

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…

Reindl, Marion; Gniewosz, Burkhard; Dresel, Markus – European Journal of Psychology of Education, 2021
Based on the social cognitive theory and the emotional contagion theory, this study investigated if friends influence (reinforce or change) the development of academic values (intrinsic value, emotional cost) and if this process differs across same-sex friendship dyads. We drew on data collected in a two-wave longitudinal study in Germany. The…

Hennessey, Alexandra; Humphrey, Neil – European Journal of Psychology of Education, 2020
Despite the significant evidence base demonstrating the positive impact of the Promoting Alternative Thinking Strategies (PATHS) curriculum on children's social-emotional and mental health outcomes, there has been very little research on its efficacy in improving academic attainment. More generally, the relationship between implementation…

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.…

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…

Edossa, Ashenafi Kassahun; Neuenhaus, Nora; Artelt, Cordula; Lingel, Klaus; Schneider, Wolfgang – European Journal of Psychology of Education, 2019
Knowledge about one's own cognitive processes is the basis for the monitoring and regulation of learning processes for effective reading comprehension. Taking verbal cognitive ability into account, the present study aimed to examine the developmental trajectories of reading comprehension and declarative metacognitive knowledge and their…

Grygiel, Pawel; Modzelewski, Michal; Pisarek, Jolanta – European Journal of Psychology of Education, 2017
This study reports relationships between general academic self-concept and achievement in grade 3 and grade 5. Gender-specific effects were investigated using a longitudinal, two-cycle, 3-year autoregressive cross-lagged panel design in a large, representative sample of Polish primary school pupils (N = 4,226). Analysis revealed (a) reciprocal…

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…

Hayek, Anne-Sophie; Toma, Claudia; Guidotti, Sofia; Oberlé, Dominique; Butera, Fabrizio – European Journal of Psychology of Education, 2017
At school, pupils often cooperate on common projects and must coordinate their different individual actions. However, grades are pervasively used even in cooperative situations, which make the pupils' differences in achievement and their relative rank salient and may reduce their inclination to work constructively with others. Thus, we…

Baadte, Christiane; Kurenbach, Friederike – European Journal of Psychology of Education, 2017
In the present study, the assumption was tested that expectancy-incongruent feedback in conjunction with explicit self-affirmation directs attention away from the task and to the self. As a result, performance should decrease in resource-sensitive text/picture comprehension tasks as compared to resource-insensitive tasks. Three hundred and…

Zhu, Mingjing; Urhahne, Detlef – European Journal of Psychology of Education, 2015
Numerous studies have been conducted on the accuracy of teacher judgement in different educational areas such as mathematics, language arts and reading. Teacher judgement of students' foreign-language achievement, however, has been rarely investigated. The study aimed to examine the accuracy of teacher judgement of students' foreign-language…

Behrmann, Lars; Souvignier, Elmar – European Journal of Psychology of Education, 2015
A strategy-based reading promotion program was implemented over a course of 8 months in 65 classes from grades 5 to 7 (student age M?=?11.2 years, SD?=?1.0). It was investigated whether teachers flexibly adapted their pedagogical content beliefs (PCBs) on the teaching of reading according to the instructional principles of the intervention.…
