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…

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…

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…

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…

Kärbla, Triinu; Uibu, Krista; Männamaa, Mairi – European Journal of Psychology of Education, 2021
Good readers use various comprehension strategies to understand texts. However, many students lack knowledge on how to purposefully and effectively use text comprehension strategies. In this experimental study, the effectiveness of teaching text comprehension strategies on vocabulary and text comprehension at literal, inferential and evaluative…

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…

Zhu, Chunjie; Urhahne, Detlef – European Journal of Psychology of Education, 2021
Numerous studies have focused on the significance and consequences of teacher judgment; the development of teachers' judgment accuracy over time, however, has been rarely examined. The aim of this study was to investigate the temporal stability of teachers' judgment accuracy of students' motivation, emotion, and achievement. The correspondence…

Ziegler, Esther; Edelsbrunner, Peter A.; Stern, Elsbeth – European Journal of Psychology of Education, 2021
Teacher-directed and self-directed learning have been compared across various contexts. Depending on the settings and the presentation of material, mixed benefits are found; the specific circumstances under which either condition is advantageous are unclear. We combined and reanalyzed data from two experimental studies investigating the effects of…

Wu, Chao-Jung; Liu, Chia-Yu; Yang, Chung-Hsuan; Jian, Yu-Cin – European Journal of Psychology of Education, 2021
Despite decades of research on the close link between eye movements and human cognitive processes, the exact nature of the link between eye movements and deliberative thinking in problem-solving remains unknown. Thus, this study explored the critical eye-movement indicators of deliberative thinking and investigated whether visual behaviors could…

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…
