Sagkal, Ali Serdar; Sönmez, Melike Tural – European Journal of Psychology of Education, 2022
The present study explored the direct and indirect (serial multiple mediation of math self-efficacy and math enjoyment) effects of perceived parental math support on middle school students' math engagement. A total of 374 middle school students ranging the age of 11 to 15 years completed a set of questionnaires assessing perceived parental math…

Wagner, Inga; Loesche, Philipp; Bißantz, Steven – European Journal of Psychology of Education, 2022
The German school system employs centrally organized performance assessments (some of which are called "VERA") as a way of promoting lesson development. In recent years, several German federal states introduced a computer-based performance testing system which will replace the paper-pencil testing system in the future. Scores from…

Vettori, Giulia; Vezzani, Claudio; Bigozzi, Lucia; Pinto, Giuliana – European Journal of Psychology of Education, 2022
A person-oriented approach was applied to the study of early adolescents' learning orientations to identify different profiles and their association with school achievement. A total of 244 middle-school students (male: 128; female: 116; M-age ± SD = 12.51 ± 0.93) completed a self-report questionnaire to explore cognitive, metacognitive, and…

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…

Dellisse, Sébastien; Dumay, Xavier; Galand, Benoit; Dupriez, Vincent; Dufays, Jean-Louis; Coertjens, Liesje; De Croix, Séverine; Penneman, Jessica – European Journal of Psychology of Education, 2021
This study focuses on conditions that improve reading comprehension at grade 7th. We analyze the impact of the "Lirécrire" program, and related treatment integrity, on student performance. "Lirécrire" program should improve students' reading comprehension, and follow-up sessions should lead to greater instructional change, then…

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…

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…

Raccanello, Daniela; Hall, Rob – European Journal of Psychology of Education, 2021
This study investigated the efficacy of an evidence-based intervention aimed at enhancing middle school students' understanding of achievement emotions and their regulation. We used the control-value theory of achievement emotions and ability conception from emotional intelligence as a theoretical framework. Participants were 62 students followed…

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…

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…

Xu, Jianzhong – European Journal of Psychology of Education, 2021
Whereas it is often a challenge to keep students motivated and interested in academic tasks, it is more of a challenge to have students stay motivated and interested in academic tasks outside school during nonschool hours--homework. Prior research, however, has largely overlooked the reasons or purposes students have for doing homework and their…

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…
