Thus, in…

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.

Despite this reform, approximately one-fourth of the students do not…

The operationalization of performance-approach goals (PAGs) was found to be an important moderator of the associations between different PAGs and several educational outcomes. To explore this aspect in more detail, we conducted two studies with school students (N[subscript 1] = 425, mean age = 16.6 years, SD = 0.61; N[subscript 2] = 310, mean age…
