Chen, Ouhao; Kalyuga, Slava – European Journal of Psychology of Education, 2020
Problem solving followed by explicit instruction, as suggested by productive failure and several other instructional theories, indicates long-term learning benefits, whereas explicit instruction followed by problem solving has been consistently demonstrated as superior within the framework of cognitive load theory. However, the effectiveness of…

Leung, Kim Chau – European Journal of Psychology of Education, 2019
Previous meta-analyses on peer tutoring have mainly included studies using treatment-control/comparison design and excluded studies that adopted pre-test-post-test design. However, some recent meta-analyses on other interventions adopting pre-test-post-test design revealed that certain crucial intervention moderators should be considered when…

Larraín, Antonia – European Journal of Psychology of Education, 2017
Vygotsky stated that concepts cannot be transmitted from mind to mind but instead developed through communication. Specifically, the instructional use of language would be the means for concept development. However, there is evidence to show that school concepts are particularly difficult to develop. Argumentation has been shown to promote the…

Eun, Barohny – European Journal of Psychology of Education, 2016
The present conceptual analysis begins with an assertion that the most fundamental act in any educational endeavors is establishing their goals.

In the psychology and educational science programs at Ghent University, only 36.1% of the new incoming students in 2011 and 2012 passed all exams. Despite availability of information, many students underestimate the scientific character of social science programs. Statistics courses are a major obstacle in this matter. Not all enrolling students…

Donat, Matthias; Dalbert, Claudia; Kamble, Shanmukh Vasant – European Journal of Psychology of Education, 2014
The more people believe in a just world (BJW) in which they get what they deserve, the more they are motivated to preserve a just world by ones' just behavior. Consequently, we expected school students with a strong BJW to show less deviant behavior as cheating or delinquency. The mediating role of teacher justice was also examined. Questionnaire…

Schmiedeler, Sandra; Niklas, Frank; Schneider, Wolfgang – European Journal of Psychology of Education, 2014
The concept of "Home Learning Environment" (HLE) covers activities in a family providing intellectual stimulation for a child, such as reading to him or her or visiting libraries. Numerous studies have shown an association between HLE and children's cognitive development. In this longitudinal study, we focus on HLE as a predictor for…

Schroeder, Mark Peter – European Journal of Psychology of Education, 2013
To examine the relationship between prior knowledge, situational interest, and recall, 34 college students read 15 paragraphs that contained varying amounts of fictional material, rated how interesting they found each paragraph, and were later assessed on how much of the information they retained. Five of the paragraphs contained fictional items…

Fernández-Vilar, Ma Angeles; Carranza, Jose Antonio – European Journal of Psychology of Education, 2013
The majority of studies on temperament in the educational context originate from the Anglo-Saxon culture, where there has been an increase in research in this field over the last four decades. The objective of this paper is to contribute towards systematizing of relevant findings that have been carried out in the educational context from the field…

This review examines the psychological benefits exercise is connected to in healthy children and adolescents. Studies on the effect of exercise on academic performance, self-esteem, emotions, and mood were examined.

A meta-analysis of 187 studies containing 247 independent studies (N = 68,429) on gender differences in academic self-efficacy identified an overall effect size of 0.08, with a small difference favoring males. Moderator analysis demonstrated that content domain was a significant moderator in explaining effect size variation. Females displayed…

Darnon, Celine; Buchs, Celine; Desbar, Delphine – European Journal of Psychology of Education, 2012
Can teenagers' self-efficacy be improved in a short time? Previous research has shown the positive effect of cooperative learning methods, including "jigsaw classrooms" (Aronson and Patnoe, 1997), on various outcomes (e.g., the liking of school, self-esteem, and reduction of prejudices). The present practice report investigated the effects of…

Students' self-determined or autonomous motivation in educational contexts is associated with adaptive educational and behavioural outcomes including persistence on educational tasks and academic performance. A key question for educators is whether promoting autonomous motivation toward activities in an educational context leads to increased…

Elliott, Julian G.; Tudge, Jonathan – European Journal of Psychology of Education, 2012
In this article, we outline the need to draw upon multiple contexts to gain meaningful understanding of factors that have a significant bearing upon student achievement motivation and engagement. In calling for theoretical approaches that can accommodate the complexities involved, we suggest that Bronfenbrenner's bioecological theory offers…
