Mierwald, Marcel; Lehmann, Thomas; Brauch, Nicola – European Journal of Psychology of Education, 2022
Recent research has repeatedly raised the question of how the authenticity of learning material affects learning outcomes. This question is particularly important for history education: researchers continue to debate whether teachers should use historians' authentic working material (e.g., multiple primary sources and historical accounts) or less…

Freund, Anat; Zriker, Amit; Sapir, Zehava – European Journal of Psychology of Education, 2022
One of the most significant phenomena among students at risk is low resilience. However, very little is known about teacher-related factors that affect students' resilience. Therefore, the main aim of this study was to shed light on the relationships between teacher-level (affective and continuance organizational commitment, professional…

Testa, Italo; De Luca Picione, Raffaele; Scotti di Uccio, Umberto – European Journal of Psychology of Education, 2022
The purpose of this study was to analyse Italian high school and university students' attitudes towards physics using the Semiotic Cultural Psychological Theory (SCPT). In the SCPT framework, attitudes represent how individuals interpret their experience through the mediation of "generalized meaning" with which they are identified. A…

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…

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…

Schnitzler, Katharina; Holzberger, Doris; Seidel, Tina – European Journal of Psychology of Education, 2021
Student participation and cognitive and emotional engagement in learning activities play a key role in student academic achievement and are driven by student motivational characteristics such as academic self-concept. These relations have been well established with variable-centered analyses, but in this study, a person-centered analysis was…

Hachfeld, Axinja; Lazarides, Rebecca – European Journal of Psychology of Education, 2021
Germany historically responded to student diversity by tracking students into different schools beginning with grade 5. In the last decades, sociopolitical changes, such as an increase in "German-as-a-second-language" speaking students (GSL), have increased diversity in all tracks and have forced schools to consider forms of…

Klapp, Alli; Jönsson, Anders – European Journal of Psychology of Education, 2021
National goals and performance standards were introduced in Sweden during the 1990s as part of a curriculum reform. The intention was to detect shortcomings among students and provide support to those students who did not reach the passing grade in one (or several) subject/s. Despite this reform, approximately one-fourth of the students do not…

Nouwen, Ward; Clycq, Noel – European Journal of Psychology of Education, 2021
Tackling early leaving from education and training (ELET) is one of the headline targets for education policy in the European Union. Although ELET rates have been decreasing in most member states, male, socially disadvantaged and immigrant students remain overrepresented in ELET figures. Moreover, students in vocational tracks and students who…

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…

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…

Wirthwein, Linda; Sparfeldt, Jörn R.; Heyder, Anke; Buch, Susanne R.; Rost, Detlef H.; Steinmayr, Ricarda – European Journal of Psychology of Education, 2020
Many studies have already found differences between male and female students in various motivational variables. With regard to the stereotypes associated to different school subjects, boys usually are more motivated in math or sciences whereas girls score higher in verbal subjects such as languages. Studies investigating sex differences in…

Putarek, Vanja; Pavlin-Bernardic, Nina – European Journal of Psychology of Education, 2020
This study examined the relationships between motivational beliefs, defined as self-efficacy for self-regulated learning and achievement goals, engagement and academic cheating in the context of learning biology. Gender differences across these variables were also examined and both active and second-party types of cheating were included. Based on…
