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…

Krstic, Ksenija; Šoškic, Andela; Kovic, Vanja; Holmqvist, Kenneth – European Journal of Psychology of Education, 2018
PISA results show that a considerable number of 15-year-old pupils after 8 to 10 years of schooling have a low level of functional reading literacy, as defined in the PISA framework. While PISA results help identify the level of reading competency, they do not reveal what might be the reasons why some students fail to solve the tasks. One way to…

Radišic, Jelena; Baucal, Aleksandar – European Journal of Psychology of Education, 2018
The study explores how teachers perceive and go about students' thinking in connection to particular mathematical content and how they frame the notion of applied mathematics in their own classrooms. Teachers' narratives are built around two released PISA 2012 mathematics items, the 'Drip rate' and 'Climbing Mount Fuji' (will be referred to as the…

Baucal, Aleksandar; Pavlovic Babic, Dragica; Jošic, Smiljana – European Journal of Psychology of Education, 2018
Why do students give incorrect answers in PISA? What are the reasons for giving incorrect answers? Do all incorrect answers reflect only the lack of competence or might even a competent child make a mistake? The aim of this article is to contribute to a better understanding of these issues. In the current investigation, we selected six students…

Public discussion on the quality of education in different corners of the world very much relies on the data provided by the international large-scale assessment (ILSA) studies. While aware of different methodological keystones and technicalities embedded in these, the idea behind this special issue is to contribute to the understanding of how…

Stenlund, Tova; Lyrén, Per-Erik; Eklöf, Hanna – European Journal of Psychology of Education, 2018
To be successful in a high-stakes testing situation is desirable for any test taker. It has been found that, beside content knowledge, test-taking behavior, such as risk-taking strategies, motivation, and test anxiety, is important for test performance. The purposes of the present study were to identify and group test takers with similar patterns…

Burusic, Josip; Babarovic, Toni; Seric, Maja – European Journal of Psychology of Education, 2012
Elementary schools in many countries record an unequal representation of male and female teachers with female teachers in huge majority. At the same time, numerous studies reveal that girls generally outmatch boys in the majority of school subjects. Consequently, possible effects of teacher-pupil gender interaction are becoming an important topic…
