Students' goal strivings are known to be connected with important outcomes, both academically and with regard to individual well-being. In spite of their importance, our knowledge of factors contributing to their early development is rather limited. In this longitudinal study on school beginners (N = 212), we focused on the interrelationships…

Kavanagh, Lauren – European Journal of Psychology of Education, 2020
Given the significant role that academic self-concept plays in students' learning, understanding the psychological processes involved in its formation continues to be an important focus of enquiry.

Klapproth, Florian; Fischer, Birthe Doreen – European Journal of Psychology of Education, 2019
We experimentally examined whether preservice teachers considered both the gender of primary school students and their development of GPAs, indicated by two successive school reports, when making secondary school-track recommendations. We used student vignettes to mimic real students and orthogonally varied student gender, their GPA development…

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.

Käfer, Julia; Kuger, Susanne; Klieme, Eckhard; Kunter, Mareike – European Journal of Psychology of Education, 2019
From a constructivist perspective on learning, mistakes are seen as natural elements of learning processes. A supportive and constructive way of dealing with student mistakes has shown to affect students' individual motivation and learning performances in a favorable way. In classroom settings, however, making mistakes is not just a personal but…

Science students' study success rates in the first year of higher education (FYHE) are problematic.
